What I want to get to is a comparison of times for those people over the age of 40 - why because I am over 40 and no other reason.

I guess I will start then........


Age 43

5km 28:42

10km 62:54

Does it mean anything without their training background? The first one is a mate of mine. Can you guess who it is?


Age 40

so have the race times got to be this years so taht it ties in with weight and age.........as PB's could have been years ago,,,,,,

Well I gave Gabrselassie's over 40 time - I took it as age category pb.

Maybe we also need your running age. Mine is 1.5 years. I'm on the up, Haile is on the way down - hope he is looking over his shoulder

Being serious though, I would have a look on the rankings on Power of 10 / Runbritain to see what the old fogeys are doing John. I don't think weight helps without knowing the fitness / run conditioning of the old geezer in question.

I'm currently the no.1  MV40 on the block (well postcode district, but block sounds more hip) according to Runbritain, and number 2 overall. That means there is a young whippersnapper out there who needs taking down. Sitting here typing on a forum isn't helping matters; I'm off

Its a talent thing. Being scrawny helps, training helps, but if you haven't got talent, as every person on this forum proves, you'll never be really good at running...


Or you wouldn't be on here asking and answering...
