November 2017 Graduation Badge

November 2017 Graduation Badge

Hello everybody and welcome to November !!

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

Many Congratulations and a huge Well Done

    And thank you in particular Oldfloss, I had your β€˜slow and steady’ mantra - which has been running through my head on so many runs over the past twelve weeks - I’ve loved this programme and loved reading and (v occasionally) adding to the conversation in this terrific group of friends. Thank you!

  • Congratulations and well done and thank you!

  • As a serial lurker who's finally hit the 30mins on the 30th of October (after somewhat longer than the 9 weeks of the plan...) can I be Graduated please (do I get a hat with Corners??)

    Onwards and upwards, now working towards the 5k mark as am more like couch-to-3.5k at the moment! :)

  • Congratulations and well done! Just a badge and the certificate to download.. and the glory of course!

  • Congratulations and well done!

  • Oh yes please.......especially as my runs since have not gone according to plan. Might give me that mojo back.

  • Congratulations and well done!

  • Afternoon OldFloss

    I’m proud to say I graduated today W9R3 was soooooo hard

    I did it by completing the Poppy Run - it was a VERY hilly course

    I may well have come a long way in the past 9 weeks but the run made me realise how far I still have to go

    I followed your mantra Slow and steady

    On and on I ran Slow and even slower - I could definitely walk quicker at times

    But complete it I did in a disappointing 53 mins

    So there’s my next challenge sorted - hills and speed

    Thanks for support

  • Congratulations and very well done!

  • Please please can I have a graduation badge?! I completed my final run today!!! Thank you 😊

  • Congratulations and well done!

  • Congratulations and well done!

  • I've graduated!

  • You did.. congratulations and well done!

  • I graduated!

  • Yes indeed!!!! The badge looks great :)

  • Yippeee!!! I did it! So pleased to have finished W9 R3! Hoped to complete on Sat but just after hearing Laura tell me I was halfway, I bumped into a friend I hadn’t seen for ages and stopped for about 5 mins to chat. I did hit the pause button and then did the second half but didn’t think it really counted so went out again and did it!

    Had a great reception from my husband and kids when I came back in through the door.

    Can’t believe I made it. Thanks to all of you for all your support. Had β€œslow and steady” in my mind all the way!!!

    Thank you.

  • Go you!

    Running Twice...! Very, very well done and congratulations. I am sorry, you only get the one badge...but it looks just great!

  • Thank you!

    What a brilliant forum this is. LOVE all the positivity. If I can graduate, then anyone can.

  • Hi Oldfloss,

    I graduated today

    Yay 😍

  • Congratulations and well done !

  • Graduated yesterday. Slow and steady. Many thanks Oldfloss.

  • Congratulations and well done !

  • Do you do these monthly?

    Also by the final week is there a ratio to reach in terms of steps per minute as I am not convinced I am running. I joked on the boards I am trotting to 5K. I am definitely not walking but going so slow at times I am being caught by walkers, admittedly fit walkers :) . Is this something you have come across before?

  • If you are running for 30 minutes..however slowly... three times, in three runs, by Week 9 of C25K... you become a Graduate. No step ratio needed:)

    Yes.. every month... we award the Graduate badges to those who have completed the programme... and yes,,, folk can be very slow:) Slow is fine:)

  • That is good to know but I suppose my concern wasn't so much that I become so slow from a distance that I look like I am stopped it is more that by the end I no longer felt like I was running, which is more of a concern. I suppose you just know when something isn't right. It is a little like when you play a record on the wrong speed it can sound like it is plodding and I suppose that is how I felt, like a single played at 33 instead of 45. My original plan was March/April but moved forward to Dec 31st so we'll see how my amended forecast goes. I did not take it seriously when I first started but only because I never thought I would get past 5 mins but now I have it has switched a light on inside me not just to finish but finish well, if possible.

    Thank you for the info

  • Could I have a badge, graduated today?
