April 2018 Graduation Badge

Bluebirdrunner
BluebirdrunnerGraduate

Hello everybody and welcome to April 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.

Now that you have graduated please check out how to move on after C25K. Here is a great link by lannodaTruffe...

healthunlocked.com/couchto5...

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, Bluebirdrunner and Millsie-J

Hi John, your virtual badge 'Graduate' is now pinned next to your name and is there when you write a post or reply to someone's post. You need to be logged onto the nhs healthunlocked c25k website, rather than the app for this to show up...

You can buy an actual c25k Graduate badge for Β£6 I believe, follow this link...

Hi Bluebirdrunner.... I'm going to do 5K run for second time. Will I be getting badge too after completion or for the one I already completed long back. Since this is going to be second time, I will be completing it much earlier than 9 weeks.

Realfoodieclub
RealfoodieclubGraduate
in reply to FairyTales

Hi there. We give out the badges from the One You couch to 5 k program. This is a structured program and because of that we don’t give out badges until at least nine weeks has been done which ever program you use. I am sorry we are quite strict about this issue as the body needs 9 weeks to build up to avoid injury, also it is to avoid people β€œboasting” about graduating earlier than others as that brings an element to the site we try to avoid, even though I know that is not what is happening here. It is an honour system so we will give your badge to you whenever you request it but as you have asked our advice and told us your circumstances I hope you understand that in this instance we would have to say you are not ready.

FairyTales
FairyTalesGraduate
in reply to Realfoodieclub

Thanks Realfoodieclub for reply. And I agree with you about preparing body in 9 weeks for running for full 30 mins.

Since I'm in US and OneYou couch to 5k is not allowed to be downloaded here.... Is there a way I can start this program and qualify for badge.

Realfoodieclub
RealfoodieclubGraduate
in reply to FairyTales

Hi there, can you access this link. It has all the weeks written down.

nhs.uk/Livewell/c25k/Pages/...

FairyTales

in reply to Realfoodieclub

yes I can access that and I will follow that but there is nothing I can record in app.

Millsie-J
Millsie-JGraduate
in reply to FairyTales

You don’t need to record, the podcast that many on the forum use does not record each run. Just do each run and move on.

Good luck

Realfoodieclub
RealfoodieclubGraduate
in reply to FairyTales

Do any of the links from this work in the US

nhs.uk/oneyou/apps#mBasqygz...

FairyTales
FairyTalesGraduate
in reply to Realfoodieclub

Yes Link works but when I can click on app it takes me to goggle play store where a message appears that link is not available in my country. It's ok realfoodieclub.

As per Millsie-J's message not all of us are using app. I'm starting to go ahead with information available on site and send you message when I'm done with running 30 mins.

This is going to be second time so I might go earlier than 9 weeks. This badge and other medals that I get at running events... all this motivates me and keeps me going with long walks and runs. :)

You can actually buy a c25k graduation badge for Β£6 and here is the link for that...

So pleased for you both, remember that your son has little legs, still growing, so may not be up to your distances or length of time running. xx
