OCTOBER 2019 GRADUATION BADGES

143 Replies

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.

YABADABADOOBYBOOBYWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

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.

Any takers..............?

Congratulations from your admin team.

Hi I graduated a few weeks ago on 31/08/19 at the Kingsbury Parkrun, time was 41.13. I’ve improved a bit on the time since then but I didn’t realise you could get a graduation badge on here lol.

I’d like to claim mine if still possible.

All the best, happy running 🏃🏼‍♀️👍

Although the big smile and sense of achievement is more than enough, a little graduate badge would certainly be a lovely added bonus. 👍

Hi. I graduated a couple of weeks ago and still haven't worked out how to claim my badge, so I'm going to try here 😊

I'm very proud to still be running for 3p minutes but am still looking forward to reaching the illusive 5km - I'm at 4.75km as my top distance so far.

I fell over twice on one of my runs last week, so today went out with my sister as a confidence boost. Feeling fragile but hopeful it was just a one off!!

Just graduated this evening - yay! Thank you so much for creating such a user friendly programme. I’ve tried running multiple times before & never stuck with it - but I’m a convert now ☺️

Brilliant news.

Neither I nor anyone else on this forum is anything to do with the production of the programme (Josh Clark in 1996) nor the podcasts/app which are produced by Public Health England, but we do think this forum is the icing on the cake.

Oh, and here is your well deserved Graduation badge.

I finished week 9 last Friday but thought I'd claim my badge after my first consolidation run today on my 52nd birthday. I'm going to carry on running to the dulcet tones of Sarah M for a while as I'm too scared to run without her! I've not posted before but I've lurked loads and been really grateful for all the wisdom and advice I've picked up on the way. Thanks.

I graduated this evening! From being able to run for a maximum of 5 minutes to 30 is something that means so much to me! I couldn’t have done it without Couch to 5K.

Hi I graduated on the 5th October @ Comber Park Run with a time of 34mins 43 secs. Would love to get my graduate badge. Now working on 5to10k after not thinking I would survive the first week of C25K!

Hello IannodaTruffe. I graduated yesterday. Still can’t quite believe it. I’m not fast, but that’s my next challenge! This forum has been a real inspiration and a real help. From lacing my shoes to cheering me on. Glad everyone was here.
