The Let’s Get The Party Started Quest
Please feel free to join in if you have graduated. We will be running these Quests every week so don’t worry you can join in any time after Graduation, it doesn’t matter when it is even if it is just for the last week.
Also please join if you have graduated and are on the IC, I have found reading and supporting other runners when I am on the IC helps to keep my motivation up and I like to still feel part of this community, so if you are on the IC put your name down, we will support you all the way back to your first run.
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. Please chat with each other and support each other’s Quests.
My advise to you is to make your goals achievable as it is very easy to get discouraged if you aim too high. It is better to aim a little less and feel great at the end of the Quest and add some more in for the next Quest. Motivation is at its best when you feel a sense of achievement through something you are trying to do. There will be a new quest every month.
Please don’t forget that all the forums are here for your benefit. They are set up to help with questions and queries as your progress on your running journey. Feel free to join any or all Of them. You will find different levels of help on each forum, so it is well worth a look around.
We have the Bridge to 10km - this forum is for runners who need a little bit more technical advice than is offered on the C25K.
We have the Marathon Running and Race support.
Again this is another step up in the type of advice that is offered and it is there if you should ever need it.
We have the Strength and Flex forum, which is set up to help you with the NHS stretches and Strength workouts. Squats, lunges and the like are all in these programs.
We also have the Active 10 which used to be called walking for health. It is a great forum for sharing your walks on your days off or if you are on the Injury Couch.
Please feel free to have a look round all the forums but also keep in mind we need your help for new runners so you can support and encourage them on the C25K forum as they learn to run, so they can come and join us on these Quests once they have graduated.
Happy running to you all
I can’t wait to see what your Quests are going to be!
