Congratulations, runners!!!

The badge is a virtual one, so I am afraid you can only have it if you participate in this community - it shows up next to your name when you post or comment here. If you and your sister would like actual badges, there is one available to purchase from this website: c25kgraduatebadge.co.uk/

Fly26
Fly26Graduate

I graduated last week! I'm so impressed with the C25K programme. Is there another recommended app that can help me consolidate now?

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to Fly26

Congratulations, runner!!

Consolidation simply requires that you keep running regularly for 30 minutes for 2 or 3 weeks, until you feel confident of your new ability. Many people (I did!) use W9 of the app to help them keep going, until they realise they are perfectly fine without it 😊We do not have another specific app to recommend, but many people find the guided runs on the Nike Run Club app useful, for example. I suggest you search for and try a few of these to see which ones you prefer.

Also, we have our monthly Consolidation Club post, which has ideas and chat about what to do to consolidate your runs - check out July's post from Ju-Ju: healthunlocked.com/couchto5...

Have fun! xx

Have a look at our in-house 10K plan over on the Bridge to 10K community healthunlocked.com/bridgeto...

I graduated today....very happy and never believed I’d be able to run this far. Strava failed on the first 2 runs this week so wasn’t really sure of progress but today she told me I had reached 5k just seconds before Michael told me i had completed 30 mins. So pleased and can’t believe that I did it!

Wonderful programme but a little bit of input on overcoming psychological barriers, particularly around W5R3 step-up would plug the only gap I found. Thanks for all the support on the forum.

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to Scundered

Congratulations, runner!!!

We do have a lot of posts on that subject, but I will certainly have a look at pointing people to it...

I graduated a couple of weeks ago and have now increased to 32mins for my last 3 runs - managed 4.59k last night and feel really chuffed! I'm planning to increase to 34 or 35 mins for my next three runs - edging ever closer to the golden 5k!

I'm 54 and have rarely exercised before, and am amazed to be able to run for this long. It's a brilliant programme and I'm encouraging everyone I know to do it. If I can do it, anyone can! I've lost a stone so far (another 1.5 stone to go) - partly due to the exercise and partly by replacing tea with 2 sugars with ginger green tea for all but the early morning cuppa - and recording calories (with 1500 limit/day).

Thanks so much for making this programme freely available. I feel like it has turned my health around.

Gosh. It's been a long time since I last posted here but I graduated about 3 years ago and for some reason didn't feel it was 'real' and so didn't announce it, then got busy with a new job and less running as a result. I've been doing the graduation runs on and off and doing other activities like rowing machines and strength training. Some days are better than others but that's OK! Looking forward to re-engaging with the C25K community!

Judith17
Judith17Graduate

I graduated this morning and feel great about it. I have followed the programme religiously, trusting Michael, listening to the Spotify Couch25K selection - well not the rude ones!

Before I started I had been trying to loose weight by walking 10.00+ steps a day. Then 5 weeks of Leslie Sansome's walk at home 30 and 45 min workouts. Didn't loose a gram! I decided I needed to change tactics and it worked. No pain at all, presumably because of my pre run weeks of training. Not that I realised it was going to be that!

I am doing the Japanese slow jogging too. So today the whole thing was 4.5km, including the 5 min warm up walks.

I have lost 2.3kg!!!

I am 74!!!

So thank you all for the tips I have picked up from here.

Well I have now managed to complete the programme....Couch to 5K at my age (63) so I'm feeling just a little bit proud of myself

I also feel a bit of a fraud in some ways though as I’ve not actually hit 5K as yet.

Still if Sarah Millican says I’ve done "alreet" who am I to disagree....I just need to keep plodding on until I can get that bit faster and able to cover more ground in the allotted half hour

Hi everyone. Thank you for such an amazing and inspirational forum and programme. I've drawn great inspiration from both. Alas I'm not great with social media, so this post is 3 months late. Sorry! So here is an overweight 52 year old, Still running 3 times per week and loving it. Thought I would hate every minute! Should be at 10k in a couple of weeks and have lost over 2 stone. Can't recommend this programme enough. Thank you everyone. Richard.

The badge is the word 'Graduate' that appears next to your name when you post or comment in this forum. Sadly it doesn't work in the Health Unlocked app, so if you are using that you will need to abandon it and log in via a web browser in order to see your badge!
