Woohoo, I graduated!!


So at 6 this morning I set off for week 9 run 3. Very xcited to complete the program-but mildly disappointed that I hadn’t reached 5k, so I decided to carry on after Michael Johnson had told me time was up! Just thought I’d push to see how much further I could go. AND I REACHED 5k!!! Woohoo!! It took 43 mins though, but who cares I did it!! Started app on 3rd July and could barely run! Thank you so much C25K. 🏃‍♀️😎💕🤪

Well done! 5k in the bag


Well done to you. What an achievement. I used to run (slowly) a few years ago but gave up. Just started this on Monday, with the lovely Sarah Millican guiding me. Lets hope I follow in your running prints and graduate too.

That’s totally amazing. I’m so excited to reach that point. I’m fast forwarding from now (week 2) to graduation and hope to do my last run as a parkrun to push me to do the 5k as I’m too slow to reach it otherwise, but awesome idea!!! Go you!! X


Congratulations on graduating and going on to do 5k very impressive. 😊👍🏻🙌👟

Woohoo! Well done Slugrunner! 🎉🎉🎉🍾🍾🍾🥂🥂🥂👏👏👏🙌🙌🙌


Step up onto that podium Slugrunner! Fantastic job! 5k? Well you join around 90% of graduates who have not reached 5k in 30 minutes by graduation. I’m not running 5k in 30 mins yet and that’s ok. I keep getting better though and I’ll get there. Keep running, enjoy it and you will do it. Congratulations!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽🎓🏆❤️


Well done to you slugrunner, enjoy your place on the podium!


Woohoo that's great! Enjoy your moment on the podium! Shiny badge available here: healthunlocked.com/couchto5...

Nice one Slugrunner. I’ve been running on and off for 20 years and I’ve never managed 5k in 30 mins!

Wow that's amazing! Well done indeed.
