Strength & flex - graduate badges now available!

Just spotted that if you've done the strength & flex program, you can now claim a graduate badge for it as well.

I really liked the program as it got me doing some type of exercise every day. Also I found on other running websites that they recommend similar exercises to improve core body strength. I'm still a slow runner but I think the exercises do help improve your fitness and make you less likely to get injured.

You're our first official Strength and Flex graduate. Wear your badge with pride Jenniej!


I'm really chuffed - thank you! J


Well done Jenniej! I did one session of the strength and flex, and then somehow got distracted onto other things. I think it's harder to keep motivation with that than with the running, where the progress is so clear each week. Maybe I should have another go - I know I would benefit from doing something else on the rest days.


I agree its harder to keep going esp in the cold weather. i've lapsed a few times but have gone back to it and I have noticed an improvement in my strength esp when I do it 2 or 3 times a week. Once a week I do it with a friend which is a good laugh as we wander around the park waving our arms in the air!
