I’ve only gone and graduated C25K it’s been hard but worth the effort and now I’m going to celebrate with a cold beer lol 😂. I’ve had a great time on the forum and lots of lovely people on here and I’m still going to be here for other people who need guidance like they did for me. And I’m so proud of myself of what I’ve accomplished I never thought I had it in me my first week I ran 60sec and I couldn’t wait for that to end now I can run 30mins and now that’s what I’m going to work on to improve my distance endurance and stamina. And my new trainers were a godsend I saved them for my graduation run brooks ghost 11 I will always now get a gait analysis when buying new trainers for running. I am smiling ear to ear and when I was running I knew I had it in the bag even going on a route that had more uphill than downhill I still pushed through and what a feeling when it finished. I’ve also lost weight I was over 14stone now 12.12stone but I am on Atkins diet I also go to the gym and I do spin and my running and I’m much happier for doing all these changes in my life. 😉🏃🏻♂️🙏🏆🏁🎓😀😉😀
W9R3 I’ve graduated yay 🏁🎓🏆: I’ve only gone... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Wow well done!!! you definitely deserve that beer!!!!
Congratulations on completing C25K with week 9 run 3 and graduating. I did congratulate you on the other post Kev and tell you how to get your graduation badge and the word GRADUATE next to your username, I don't mind repeating that for you my friend.
To get your graduation badge and the word GRADUATE 🎓 next to your username leave a message on the June graduate post in the pinned posts on the right side of the healthunlocked C25K home page and tell the administrators that you have ran W9R3 of C25K and graduated from.
Another huge congratulations to you, nice photo of you, you look so happy. 😊 🏃 🎓
Thank you Alan my friend 😉 and yes I will be going to ask for my graduation badge yes I am really happy glad you like the photo that’s a exhausted me lol 😂🏃🏻♂️🎓🙏🏆🏁🌟
Do stay on here Kev, you can congratulate other people when they graduate, advise them about any problems they may have, if medical, advise them to see a doctor and tell them when they graduate how to get their graduation badge.
First of all celebrate your graduation, have a few days off running and then run on alternative days around 6/30 minute consolidation runs before you think of what you want to do next.
I went on to the Stepping stones podcasts with Laura or you can try out any of the Bridge 210K podcasts.
Very many congratulations on your graduation fellow runner.

You really have taken control of your fitness and I am sure you will reap the health benefits in years to come.
Keep running, keep smiling.

Sounds like a plan! You're going to love Parkrun, everyone is so supportive, just like this forum. ☺
Congratulations on completing c25k you must be so pleased well done 😊😊👏👏
Well done Kev!! We’ll be with you for the next part of your journey 🙌🏻 xx
Well done Kevtrev, a fantastic achievement! Enjoy that celebration!👏🥳🍺
Fantastic story! 💪👍😁 very well done!
Congratulations! Are you going to go on the the bridge to 10k forum?
PS you don’t need a gait every time - you now know which shoes suit your feet so now you can get them online probably cheaper
Thank you Tasha yes I’m already on bridge to 10k forum that’s good to know I thought you’re foot landings might of changed from time to time but thanks for that then I can just order them online and not do the gait analysis every time I need a pair 😉🏁🏆🏃🏻♂️😀🌟🙏🎓😊 XX
Yes sounds like a plan thank you again x
Fantastic - well done! That's a great list of achievements for a few short weeks.
You should be so proud of yourself.
This programme is quite simply life-changing, especially when combined with a change in diet and a bit of strength training.
What's next for you now?
Thank you I am proud of myself 😉 so next is a parkrun and I’ve signed myself up for race for life 5k 😉
Fantastic. Having a goal is the key!
That’s what is going to keep me going training for events like race for life 5k and parkrun and one day a 10k but not quite yet 😉🏁🌟🏃🏻♂️😀😊🙏🏆🎓
You'll be amazed how quick you'll want to do 10k. I said no increase until 10 weeks after graduation but that soon went out of the window!
Wow well done Kevtrev! Graduate! You have done amazingly well and should be so proud of yourself 🌟🏃♂️😊.
Thank you very much Delly-dot it was the best thing I’ve ever joined up to do and now there are lots of things I can accomplished like on Saturday a parkrun and on the 14th July I’m doing race for life yay xx
