November Graduation Badge...2018

November Graduation Badge...2018

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 certificate, 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 5 km; you are a graduate after running 30 min for three times.

To ensure that 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 ! :-)

Oldfloss, RFC, Ju-Ju and Millsie-j, xxx

Hi Oldfloss, I ran 5k for Movember yesterday as the final run in my C25K journey, and although it took me 58 minutes, I ran non stop just to prove to myself that I could. I have been running longer each time, and actually ran 34, then 40 minutes for weeks 1 and 2 of week 9. Looking forward to receiving my graduate badge, but will probably be doing fast walks from now as my poor hip joints are aching. This has been an unbelievable achievement for me, and the support I've received along the way from this community has been amazing. B xx

The Couch to 5K running plan was created by Josh Clark in 1996. He developed the plan for new runners as motivation through manageable expectations. The plan aims to get the user working out for 20 to 30 minutes, three days a week. The daily workouts start with a five-minute warm-up walk and works up to running three miles without a walking break within nine weeks. Clark started the website Kick and featured C25K on the site.

Gosh.. what an achievement!!!

You have done wonderfully...and despite all those horrific problems and your ongoing difficulty you had a fantastic run... wow! Inspirational....

The best bit though... this goes on... and guess what... we will be right here to help :)

Thank you oldfloss! I was very emotional yesterday as I really didn’t expect to be able to do this! Looking forward to continuing and eventually getting back to running 10ks again like I used to ! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I can only imagine how you felt.... :) This does go on... initially, perhaps.. with a great Consolidation and Continuation post on Bridge to 10K....maybe take a peek....and then stick around.. the support on there is fantastic, and you will know so many of us...You will surely make that 10K.... I run 10K regularly and am beginning my HM training in a few weeks time... :)

I look forward to seeing your posts:)

Hello! My username is Crumbleaddict and I’ve just this evening completed week 9 run 3. I had done no exercise since School and didn’t even own a pair of trainers but when I turned 50 in September I jolly well got some, and look where they and Laura have taken me! I am astonished and I love it. It’s addictive! Next stop ParkRun....

FInally completed wk9 run3! It's taken me a whole year to reach this point - a sprained ankle (among other things) held me up. I'm so delighted to graduate. C25K is great. A year ago I'd never run in my life, and never thought I could. I turn 64 soon and feel so much better in body and spirit than I did. Thank you to the community for all the encouragement!

Hi I did the graduation run about two weeks ago and have done all my running on a treadmill so I continue to up the effort by repeating the last run at a slight and increasing gradient. Long term ambition is to go and run outside on first sunny spring day looking like a pro!

I have coerced my partner to do the course and he is at W4 complaining about his knees but still sure β€œhe can do anything I can do better”, Can’t remember who sang that but it used to be on 2way family favourites in the car on the way to Granny’s, sorry, age related trivia.

I definitely need a grey blob my my name to maintain my superior position in this household for the moment.

Neither Harvey (current Holden Retriever) nor Sam (now residing at the big dog beach in the sky) could have achieved such a feat but together Harveysam (me) has achieved the impossible - 30 minutes x 3 times! At times it might have resembled a zombie apocalypse but I think I looked ok at the end. And just two days before turning the big 59!

Hello. Emct64 here.

Finished the programme this morning with a bit of a flourish by doing the full 5k in a bit under 34 mins.

It’s been a great programme. Tough but achievable. I look forward to proving to myself that x 3 a week of these 5k is something I need to do for me. Is there an ongoing group for us to help with the ongoing motivation?

I completed week 9 in October and then ran. 5 5k’s in 35 minutes before sprinting my ankle and having to take a month off to recover☹️So frustrating ! I never got round to contacting you about graduation but as I am now back running 5 K three times a week although taking 43 minutes to complete and have registered for our local park run I thought I would let you know

I am enjoying it soo much and plan to try the bridge to 10K in the new year

As a 66 year old grandma I would encourage everyone experiencing set backs or struggling to keep following the plan. It is so worth it when you can just get out there and run

I am so grateful to everyone involved in the C25K plan and especially Laura for making it happen
