Hi!I’ve finally complemented the couch to 5k and would like to request my badge! It took me about a month or so longer than expected due to lack of confidence but slow and steady helped me win the race!

Hi,

I completed the final run today, what a feeling !!!

Started in Feb 2021 but kept getting injured.

A combination of listening to others here and taking things sensibly, losing weight / eating less bad food / drinks etc ... has finally seen me sail through with no niggles since restarting in October.

So bloody chuffed with myself !!!

Can I claim the badge please?

Completed C25K on 7th January and can't believe how well I took to it. I completed my first parkrun on Saturday with a time of 27:50 (over 2 mins faster than my gym runs) so I'm well chuffed and looking forward to consolidating at 5k before moving on to better times and perhaps even going longer distances in the future. πŸ˜€
