May 2019 graduation Badges

Hello everybody and welcome to May 2019. What a great time of year for runners, but wait... every month of the year is a great time for runners... just different ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

Please leave your username here for me, so we can organise your well deserved Graduation badge.

We will try not to leave you waiting too long as we know how great it feels when your badge arrives.

Please feel free to download and save the above Graduation badge certificate that has been kindly designed by RunaroundSue

Donโ€™t forget to look into the โ€˜What Nextโ€™ post

healthunlocked.com/couchto5...โ€ฆโ€ฆ.what-next

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 ! :-)

Please don't rush off from this forum too soon, our graduates bring a wealth of information, experience and encouragement to our new runners. We would love to read about your next steps, your challenges and how you overcame them, your successes and achievements etc.

As part of your future plans, why not join the C25k Quest, see the pinned posts for details๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป

Happy running everyone xxx

Not quite yet for me, still on W4. I hope I can add my name to your June 2019 graduation, which is also when I turn 40! Excited to be on this challenge and can see that badge getting closer and closer and within reach.

Your badge is next to your name now, unfortunately it doesn't show on the app. Here is the link to change your name if you want, I would think about it as everyone will of got used to you under the name you use and you might lose some following if you change your name. Please note you can only do this twice

That's me completing week 9 run 3. Still hard work and not completely converted to this running thing BUT I am enjoying feeling better, fitter and can go out running with my super sporty 9 year old without him having to almost resuscitate me. (although he jogs ahead and back again several times because I am so slow!!!!!). Now to get better at the 30 minutes and get nearer to the 5Km distance.

Thanks everyone for taking time to support and advise everyone.

At almost 60 and as a person who hated running, I have completed the Couch to 5k program- it was tough but great! I run slowly - but I can keep going for 30 minutes. I have seen real progress over the weeks. Great stress relief and fab programme. I am a bit worried about maintaining this - I need something else to follow but don't know what to try next. Will check out the suggestions! Norju59

Completed c25k on Saturday - feeling very pleased with myself. Run 1 of week 9 I found an amazing burst of energy and even carried on past the 30 minutes to do a full 5k in 38 minutes. Runs 2 and 3 I found much harder, but seems like I'm at the point where even if it's a 'bad' day I can grit my teeth and get to 30 minutes. Also 2 stones down from when I started in February!

A month or so of consolidation and I'll start doing a longer run once a week and see where that gets me. Also going to do the Sunrise City 5k at the end of next month to give me something to train towards - sunrisecity.co.uk/cities/sh...

Iโ€™ve never been an early morning person nor a runner but Iโ€™m actually starting to enjoy my early morning runs, especially when the sun shines like it did today.

Iโ€™m 50 now and I reckon itโ€™s about 35 years since I last ran for more than a couple of mins. All thanks to C25K and the fab advice and inspiration Iโ€™ve found on this forum. My new mantra is โ€œslow and steadyโ€๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ After all the tortoise did beat the hare in the end didnโ€™t he!

I haven't run for many years, but signed up to do the Race for Life 5K for Cancer Research and wanted to run with the team. Over the past 9 weeks, I have done exactly what Michael Johnson told me to do and I'm amazed that I can now run for 30 minutes without stopping.

W9R3 done! Thankyou so much to everyone on here for the support and tips... I really would never have thought I could do this back in mid-Feb... Started on 1 Mar, and kept on shuffling! Today was probably the second hardest, after W1R1, and certainly the hottest, but itโ€™s in the bag! I didnโ€™t make the 5k, nowhere near tbh, but I CAN do 30 mins... Race for Life signed up to, so now to increase the distance then the speed :D

Really sorry if I am missing something.... but I canโ€™t see my badge. I know you say you get the word โ€˜Graduateโ€™ next to your username, but is that on my profile page ? Any chance of a screen shot of the location ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Reply

Click on this link it will take you back here on the web browser and you will see your badge next to your name. Unfortunately it doesnโ€™t show up on the aPp.

Ok, thatโ€™s why .... Iโ€™m on the app !

Thanks for clearing that up.

Also, on the app, next to the circular personal images on the feed, there are some smaller circular images. Some look like runners, some are the C25K logo and then there are others which are too small to see. What are they ?

You got me there, I will have to go and have a look. I donโ€™t use the app because it doesn't have admin duties. I will report back later. ๐Ÿ˜€ Rfc x

Hello Realfoodieclub, I wondered if I could have a graduation badge please? I finished run 3, Wk 9 today. Hooray! It was actually the second time that I have finished the programme; I finished last time in Feb 2018, but didnโ€™t ask for a badge.I then hurt myself, ended upon the injury couch long term, before starting again in Feb 19. Iโ€™m so pleased that Iโ€™ve done it! Upward and onward! RunGG2018
