Completed C25K in 2018 first time. 2019 I had my hysterectomy which put me back. When I restarted tnis year I was pleased to see that I was not at square one so second time out I was able to complete the course a little quicker as the first couple of weeks could be condensed. I have now graduated a second time and I'm looking at virtual running sites and doing challenges for medals. A great way of keeping the motivation going and collecting some bling along the way.

Just completed C25K for the 2nd time (did it 2 years ago). This time I'm determined to keep it up (already decided that I'm going to work on getting my cadence up a little bit before I go for more distance). At some point in the next year or so I want to try and gain the other .75 km I'm 'missing' :-)

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to rainbowflower

Hi! I am not sure what you mean, can you link me to an example of this - I mean a post on C25K that has a screenshot? I'm afraid we are not responsible for the C25K app, so any problems with it may need to be directed at the app developer via your app store.

Anyway, huge congratulations for completing Couch to 5k, I have awarded you OUR virtual badge!!

Hi Roseabi,

Fast approaching my 55th birthday this month and was so pleased to have completed W9R3 last week and actually ran the full 5k distance yesterday, WOO HOO!!

I first completed the programme on a treadmill in the gym last Autumn, but failed to continue the runs over the Winter period so started again from scratch during lockdown, and have been enjoying early morning runs in the park this time. Hopefully I now feel confident enough to join the Park Runs when they start up again.

A Graduate badge would be awesome, thanks!

Good evening. I’m proud to share that I have completed C25K this evening and would love my badge.

Only question I have is I already have 10K graduate will I also have C25K or will it remove my 10K badge ?? Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to liam-1

Well done, and there is your badge!

Your 10K badge is only visible on the Bridge to 10K forum, so it will not be affected. I am a little puzzled as to why you have completed C25K AFTER getting to 10K though!!

liam-1
liam-1Graduate in reply to roseabi

Determination and pushing myself to be honest.

Had a really bad shift at work one Saturday, so I can home put the running gear on and went out. Before I knew it my Adidas tracker was telling me you have now completed 10K. I couldn’t believe it myself. I posted the tracker as I was so proud

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to liam-1

Great stuff! Please be sure to have a couple of days rest, and then take it easier for a while. A sudden large increase in activity can cause injury, so I suggest you rein back from 10K runs and build up your distance again a little more slowly 😊😊😊

Well, I’m late requesting but actually completed C25K on my 49th Birthday on 30/7/2020. Feeling very pleased with myself! Having tried (and failed) twice before, I guess 3 is the lucky number for me. Reading the posts on here gave me the help, support and encouragement I needed, I hadn’t tapped into that the first two times. As a reward, my partner got me a bike for my birthday! So more mental and physical challenges ahead...πŸ˜…
