Ta, it's all about the last 4 miles tomorrow, the first 22 are a doddle haha. Should get decent time but I'm not Fat Frank standard.

 

We will have to get a WWays half marathon arranged with a good drink after.

 

To anyone thinking of taking running up everyone hates the first mile, after that your breathing gets sorted and you find a rhythm. A lot of folk do that shitty first mile then think sod it but it does get a lot easier.

22 miles is pretty much outside our house. Let me know your number.

fcuking well done, i reckon

 

3.43 and a bit

 

very even pace, too

 

if you can do it at your age, it should inspire us all

 

That averages out at 26:30 per 5k.

In fact he passed 10k in 52:32 and speeded up a little to reach 30k in 2:35.58 before slowing to 27:45 5k pace for the remainder. JSL

Breaking it down like that, fook me, that's a hell of an effort.

 

Top marks Whites Man.

Watched "Free to run" last night about the new york marathon and prefontaine, been running a couple of 5k's a week in the last few months, want to step up the distance a little bit and then get to 10k eventually

Yeah - I've been doing that over the last year, had a few set backs with knees being fucked and then ankles. Now do 5k 3 times a week.

 

Going ok now though, finally did 5k in under 27 with two big hill climbs so quite happy with that. One of the best tips I read for a fast 5 k is do a 1k beforehand as a light jog, then start on the 5k as most people's first 1k is slower (maybe the more experienced runners on here can back that up?) so you start at a faster pace. Although, I've never been a fast runner even in school teams, I do like distance or short distance and hills. Got my gait measured at the weekend and invested in some bloody expensive trainers. The shop I went to - Run and Become in Victoria - do classes on your running style so if my right ankle is still feeling it I might go to one (again, if anyone has experience, or thinks its a waste of cash - any advice greatly received!)

I'm stuck around the 26min mark, really wanna get under 25! Can see why the 1k warmup would help, always find i struggle to get going properly and into a rythmn until about a mile and a bit in Edited by DaisyHWanderer

Yes, the 1k jog seems entirely sensible.

In a Marathon it would be a little different, but since your effort is under 30 minutes a warm-up loosener is to be recommended.

Thanks Malc. Worked last night, so lets see tomorrow.

 

Be doing 7-10k as and enjoying that much more than a 5k dash. Although got told to slow up and not leap into a 10k as I could end up getting an injury very quickly. 1k addition a week and then hold that for a further week before progressing. Its probably different for everyone, as I say, I'm sure the more experienced on here have more experience and knowledge.

The first mile of any run should be warming up and getting your breathing correct so yes, if you are going for a time do a warm up mile before.

 

Re gait analysis I have my doubts about its value. If you are not having problems and your shoes wear evenly then you haven't a problem. If you do get it done then go somewhere proper, you hear stories of people getting conflicting results from different stores.

 

The more I read into it the more I think about of worries about knackering your joints is misguided. Running makes bones stronger and denser and ligaments bigger and stronger so it should if anything prevent injuries.

 

Finally when increasing mileage Little Henry's and my coach always has us increase a mile, consolidate the next week then add another mile the following week etc. Give your body time to recover and rebuild. Your long runs should be at a comfortable talking pace and not about speed, you can cover that on your shorter runs.

I'm usually wanting a sit down after that lap of the track at leverhulme

There's about 4 other places after that as well, mind

At the minute you probably don't have anything left in the tank after 3 miles so doing a warm up would only result in you running out of steam before the finish line. On Bolton Parkrun I think walking up the big hill on each lap would cost you a maximum of 30 seconds as you won't be running up it at any greater pace. You can then make up that time as you will be relatively refreshed and pass all those runners who overtook you on the hill.
