Just ran my second 10k!!!

So chuffed that I’ve managed 2 10k runs since graduating c25k on 14th April. Did a lot of cross training in between the runs over the 9 weeks which I think is why I’ve progressed on to longer runs quickly

Good time Neilix1971 (at first glance I thought your username was Netflix )

on running your second 10K in such a short time since graduating from C25K, well done, not sure why the word Graduate is not next to your username if you have graduated from C25K.

I did have the graduate badge so not sure why it’s disappeared!

I am getting a little confused about this as well Neil, there are a few running communities here on Healthunlocked, if you graduate from C25K and tell the administrators, the word GRADUATE will appear next to your username, however, if you post something on the Bridge to 10K community but have not ran a 10K the word GRADUATE will NOT appear on that unless you have ran a 10K, then it would be Graduate10.

The post we are on at the moment is C25K, if you have ran run 3 of week 9 and told the administrators, the word GRADUATE should be there, I don't see it, strange, have you told the administrators that you have ran a 10k?if so the word GRADUATE 10 should be there on the Bridge to 10k forum, but I don't see why Graduate on the C25K part should still not be there, I mean if I run a 10K and tell the administrators, the word Graduate10 would appear next to my username in the Bridge to 10K part but I would still hope that graduate would still be on the C25K forum for running a 5K earlier.

I don’t take much notice but I’m sure I had the 10k badge last week lol! I updated my profile pic earlier so maybe that’s something to do with it

Well done, a great achievement.

Without wanting to sound nannying, please take care. It is immediately after graduation that many overdo it, believing they are now invincible. You are still a very, very new runner. The cross training will help but doing too much too soon is a sadly common theme on this forum and in physio's consultations.

Have you read the guide to post C25K running? healthunlocked.com/couchto5...…….what-next

Take care.

Thanks for the reply, I have read through the what’s next post - and never intended to run a full 10k but just head out and extend by a few minutes, but felt ok and kept running

That’s very impressive! I tried to do weights in between C25K but stopped around W5 when runs got longer, as I hadn’t done exercise for about 10 years and started finding my legs heavy during runs. I’ve just graduated so may start introducing the weights back now but maybe try and keep runs same. Then may start going longer. Who knows. I’m not sure whether will find longer runs too boring 🥴
