The Quest is coming to the C25K Forum as well.
Over the weekend we had a few discussion about graduates on the forum and about how we can make graduates feel welcome to stay around the C25k forum and post, all the admins and mentors have been working away in the background to try and achieve the feeling of the forum we are looking for. We have come up with the conclusion that the quest should come back to the C25K forum but also a version of it stay on the Bridge to 10km forum. That way when and IF (there is no pressure for you to move) you go over to the bridge there is a familiar format for you to help you find your feet on a new forum
When I graduated I was a bit lost as to what to do next. So I looked around on the forum to see what was there and there was nothing. At that time there wasn't any other running forums on here it was only the C25K. So I did a little post saying I was going to do a Quest and did anyone want to join me. I got loads of people interested. My first quest was around this time of year and Mother’s Day was in the period it would be taking place so I called it the Run for Mum Quest.
Little did I know that posting that quest would change my life. It was because of my quests that Healthunlocked came to me and asked me to run this forum
Over the years the Quest has been tweaked a bit, it is for graduates only, this is because we don’t want people struggling to do their quests when they should be listening to what their body needs and doing extra weeks if need be, it is an added pressure that is not needed while you are learning to run. The good news is that it is there waiting for you when you have graduated
So on the first of March 1st will be posting a new Quest on the forum,
This was my first ever proper Quest.
Here is the explanation of what the Quest is.
What the quest is:-
The quest lasts for a calendar month
You can join any time within that time.
The main aim of the quest is to help you find a focus or goal that you would like to achieve by the end of the Quest period.
We ask that you are a graduate . The main reason we ask this is that while you are doing the program your plan is very structured, so we wouldn't want the quest to interfere with that.
Most popular goals are:-
To run three times a week
To slowly increase distance
To train for a specific race
To add In Stretch and strength exercises
As you can see they are personal to yourself and it's totally your own choice.
Every week I will pin a new post where all the members of the quest can talk about how things are going
