still possible to get fast

.Martyn rees broke the over 60 , 10 mile race time today with a time of 56:50

now thats a time many men half his age would be pleased with.......

keep running

 

Jeez, that IS inspirational sub six minute miles

 

10kg off is no mean feat, hope it all comes together for you LeedsNick, better weather ahead hopefully...

 

I have been having delusions about running in the Western States 100 in a few years time.... Have York marathon in October and Valencia again in November, downside of being in Ibiza is total lack of races, Ibiza trail marathon in May was cancelled

 

Had some great runs in the Yorkshire Dales the past week on holiday, total of 4900ft of ascent, snow and ice abound at the top of Penyghent, stunning part of the country.

 

Lakeland50 on the radar for next year

 

Good luck and keep injury free everyone and enjoy your running...

Try this fitness test based on heart rate recovery. If you do well its a good motivator to carry on. Basically you exercise to a given heart rate target, then see how quickly it drops over 2 mins. The lower it drops, the fitter you are.

Blast from the past with this thread.

Did the NDW50 in May in 13:08

NDW100 last weekend, first 50 in 10:58, finished in 29:34, was brutal in the weather conditions.

Valencia again this year. Hope  everyone is still healthy.
