November Graduation badges 2016

Hi there,

Congratulations on your graduation !

Please leave your username here for me so we can organise your well deserved graduation badge. We will try not to leave you waiting too long as we know how great they feel when they arrive.

We would like to clarify the position of earning your graduation badge. To get your badge you will have completed the full training podcasts and be able to run for 30 min. It does NOT matter if you cannot run 5km, you are a graduate after running 30 min for three times.

So it is fair to everybody, please do not ask for your badge until you have completed week 9 run 3.

Poppypug, RFC and Ju-ju x

    I completed the C25K today!!!! This was my third attempt; I tried in previous years and for various reasons didn't finish. This year i was far more determined :D It took me 10 weeks as I repeated a few runs on weeks when I didn't quite feel ready for the next level but I have done it.

    My next goal is to work on speed, then my friend and I are aiming to reach 10k together.

    Woo hoo, thank you Laura and the C2 5K!!!

  • Hello.

    I completed the 'Couch to 5K' today with Laura's help. I only managed to run 4.02 km in 30 minutes but felt great completing the programme. My goal is to go up to 5K within one week so that I could run the entire length in the 5K run next week (Run for their Lives - Colombo Sri Lanka)

    I would love to get the graduate badge which will be such a motivator.

    Many thanks for all the support on this community.

  • Huge well done and here is your badge :)

  • Thanks for this - after starting C25K several times, I actually finished it this time. I did W9R3 on Monday this week. Now I am working towards a real 5k rather than 30 minutes but the difference is I believe I can do it now !

  • Fabulous, I bet you are over the moon about your achievement, and here is your badge ...well done 😎

  • Thankyou

  • Completed my final run of week 9 today. Would love a badge!

  • Hi,

    Just back from my final 30 Min run of the cto5k programme. Can I apply for my graduation badge please. ☺😁😊



  • Many Congratulations and Well done ! :-) xxx

  • goneforabeer - I graduated on Saturday, and have completed two further 30 min runs since then. All runs have been done on treadmill at gym with the gradient set at 3% and the speed set to 5.5mph, I'm a 57 year old lorry driver covering various shifts including earlies, nights etc so been really difficult to find a regular time to fit these runs in. Oh can I get a graduate badge please.

  • Many Congratulations and Well done ! :-) xxx
