October 2019 is just another month, but for some of you it will be seered indelibly into your memory as the month that you completed the simple, but life changing little training plan that is Couch to 5k.
So this is the place that you come to claim that oh so hard won Graduation badge. Congratulations, fellow runner.
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. We aim to get it to you within 24 hours..............but it might well be considerably quicker.
Please be patient and don't message admin about your badge.........we are doing our best.
Please feel free to download and save the above Graduation badge certificate that has been kindly designed by RunaroundSue.
Just to clarify the position of earning your Graduation badge.
To get your badge, you will have completed the full training plan 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.
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.
So, with that in mind, do please stick around here, and, as part of your future plans, join the C25k Quest, see the pinned posts for details.
Also, when you are ready... have a look at the ‘What Next’ post: healthunlocked.com/couchto5... written to give you tips as the world becomes your running track.
One point to note.......the Graduation badges only show up in a web browser, unfortunately not in the C25k app.
Congratulations from your admin team.
