March 2018 Graduation Badges

March 2018 Graduation Badges

Hello everybody and welcome to March 2018!

Hope all is good, and happy running!

Please leave your user name here for me, so we can organise your well deserved Graduation badge.

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

We will try not to leave you waiting too long, as we know how great it feels, when the badge arrives.

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

Rfc & Ju-ju, Oldfloss, Jan-now-runs and Millsie-J

Hi, I finally completed my W9R3 this week and would love a graduation badge please. I didn't quite make it for my 50th birthday due to a wee mishap on week 7 (slipped on ice while twiddling with iPod & smacked head on pavement) but I was only a week late! According to Endomondo I'm running at 15mins/mile which is pretty slow. Any tips on speeding up? BTW this forum is an amazing source of help and encouragement. Many thanks.

Wow! You poor thing. Lucky no lasting damage.

I would say as you get comfortable with 30 min runs your speed will naturally increase. You could also try bursts of increased speed within your run, say 2 to 3 mins 3 or 4 times in the run. Don't push too hard though, you still want to have fun 😁

Reply

Thanks JoJo. As you say, getting comfortable with 30mins should come first. Think I'll spend the next month or so just enjoying being able to run for 30 mins and get some miles on my legs before I attempt anything more advanced. 😀

Hi This weekend I ran in my first Parkrun, 5km. First time I have not been solo. There were 700 runners! I did my 5K in 32:21. Can't wait for next weekend to do it again. C25K has been fantastic. BTW I am 50 and weigh 210 really enjoying my running :)

Hi, I’ve completed the program!

If you’d said at the start of the year I’d be running for 30 minutes I wouldn’t have believed it.

Reply

Congratulations and well dine. Hope you enjoyed the programme.

Reply

At times it's been 'challenging', though Yes! I have enjoyed it and am going to continue.

I've spent lifetime thinking I couldn't run and if I tried... got the evidence to support this belief. Cramps, breathless, sore legs etc, however... I'd never been taught how to run. The C25k has taken me gently, by the hand and shown me I can do it, at 56!

It's not just the running I've enjoyed. I moved to a city about six years ago and missed being in the countryside and connecting with nature. However, I found a lovely little park which has cultivated areas, woods, riverside and a mapped out 5k route! (Fletcher Moss Park).

Starting the C25K at the beginning of the year has allowed me to reconnect with nature. The elements, wind, rain, snow and mud! Also the chance to notice the gradual arrival of Spring, both plants and animals.... wonderful.

In addition to the 5k I also go for a 6-8 mile hike at the weekends. All this together with a calorie controlled diet has brought my BMI down into the "normal" range, and my Asthma has improved too.

I am incredibly grateful to the program and all that support, promote and maintain it.

Thank you!

Hello!

Not sure if I am entitled to a C25K Certificate.

Decided to start running as I was approaching big birthday (60), overweight (15 stone) and officially obese.

For some motivation I entered a Stroke Resolution 5K run.

Took my first 'run' on Monday 15 January.

Weather - snow and ice - and the need to eat cake - lot of family birthdays in January and February - made the programme interesting.

Profoundly deaf so never used the pod cast.

Did a mixture of your programme and that supplied by Stroke Association.

Ran the 5K run on Sunday 11 March 2018 (Mothering Sunday). Time was about 29 minutes but got held up a bit by traffic at the start.

Also raised about £250 in sponsorship.

Have continued to run about 30 minutes three times a week since then.

Now over 60. Now weigh less than 14 stone. Now still officially obese.

Do I get a certificate?

Reply

If you completed the nine week programme you are a graduate! Well done Martin.

Download the certificate at the top and print off. Your badge is now next to your name.

Happy Running.
