April 2017 graduation badges

April 2017 graduation badges

Hello everybody and welcome to April !

Please leave your username here for me so we can organise your well deserved graduation badge.

Please feel free to download and save the Graduation badge that has been kindly designed by RunaroundSue

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

    Good luck and keep running!πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  • Thank you. x

  • Just to say I completed first 5k on 1st April, in very slow 51.58.

    But thanks to c25k and the support on here am just delighted.

    Thank you.

  • Congratulations and well done

  • Thank you.

  • Completed my W9 R3 last night and I am really pleased to do it. I was just shy of the 5K mark at 30 minutes so even managed to keep going for the extra two minutes to get there. It has been tough going especially the week when the run jumps to 20 minutes but once you get through that you know you can do it. I am planning to keep doing the 30 minute runs for the next few weeks then will look to enter a 5K park run, then hopefully start looking at going further.

  • Congratulations and well done

  • Congrats to you. I completed mine this morning and what a great feeling.Anyway keep goingπŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  • Hello again .will you let me know when I will get my graduation badge or am I able to download it and if so how. Many thanks πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  • It is next to your name now. You can also print off the certificate at the top of the page as well if you wish.

  • How are things with you and yours RFC? Sending good thoughts and lots of hugs your way!

  • We are doing fine thank you. It is a slow process, both of us have been told to slow down a bit. MrRfc is finding the antirejection tabs a bit fierce and can't sleep, but the kidney is going great. Every blood test is in normal range. πŸ˜€.

  • Great about the kidney and blood tests! Hopefully they can sort the meds! Look after yourselves xxx

  • Of course silly me and many thanks !πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

    Please can I have my graduation πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ“ badge? I completed w9r3 yesterday to a massive round of ( internal) applause πŸ‘ πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‚

  • Congratulations and well done

  • I only discovered this forum a couple of months ago but I finished the programme in December 2013 (started in August 2013 just after my 50th birthday). I'm now trying to slowly build up to 10k (though have a minor knee injury at the moment). I currently run 5k between 36 to 38 minutes. I guess I've probably missed out on April badges but maybe in May ...?

  • Congratulations and well done

  • Thank you so much, I wasn't expecting that so quickly! X

  • I've just completed week 9 run 3 and have also managed my first park run finishing in 38 minutes, so very pleased with that! Please can I have a graduation badge please 😊

  • Congratulations and well done

  • Please can I have my badge - I did my third 30 minute run yesterday! So proud to have finished. It took me 14.5 weeks, but has been so worth it. I've run:walked four 5ks already, and it won't be long before I can run a whole one.

  • Congratulations and well done

  • Please may I have one... Did W9R3 last night 🎈

    Am struggling to feel celebratory...It was hard and i am still not addicted to running but dammit I did it and that for me is a massive achievement... Not at 5k..Little slow legs...But 30 minutes is outstanding for me and my body so I am pleased.. and will wear my badge with a quiet sense of achievement.

  • Congratulations and well done, a secret between you and me, I felt the same when I graduated but I am so hooked now. My 20 min run was the one that made me cry with happiness. πŸ˜€. Welcome to life in the slow and steady, we have a lot of fun.

  • Finally completed it πŸ˜„. Took quite a bit longer than the 9 weeks but got there. Now trying out stepping stones.

  • Hi,

    I've just competed W9R3 at my first Patkrun. It was great having people clapping at the finish line and encouraging me along the way, I can't believe I ran 5.3K in 35 minutes. My furthest and fastest run ever! I didn't run at all before February. Couch to 5K really works!

    Please can I have a graduation badge.

    Thanks. 😁
