recently started jogging done three 5 mile runs ... quit smoking three weeks ago as ive been smoking for 15 years... ive always played football once a week to keep fit ( well try to) my last run i got the stop watch out and i done the five miles in 37.50..... im wondering if this is a good time for a beginner and an ex smoker ? cheers
sorry it was 37.30
I would say that if you can manage a 5 miler in 37 minutes you have a good level of fitness already which is probably been helped by playing football. I think a lot of people who train regularly would be happy with that time - so well done, and on stopping smoking! Keep it up!
thaks rob.... im hoiping over the next couple of months to get it down to 6 mins per mile... wish me luck
