So you're all in the "D2D is full of shit" camp?! I disagree. I think she'll do it.

Firstly she's been so definite about this that she knows she'll have zero credibility if she fails. She isn't going to risk becoming a complete laughing stock, is she?

Secondly, for anybody who has run 70 miles a week for a few years, a sub 20 5k isn't a fast time anyway.

So: 19:55

Good luck!

I see where you are coming from, but D2D does have a long history.

Personally, I think she'll either do it, or come pretty close - I think she is one big wind up.  Many think everyone has been laughing at D2D for a long time.  I think its the other way round.

I thought 22low would be a good result, before she went on to make her 3.1M training run claim.

Ooh thanks!

Just as a matter of interest, what is a respectable 5km for an older gentleman? I did 24 minutes last night and I realy think with a bit of luck I'll get down to 22 minutes.Is that any good?

I shall do some research in any case.

30/01/2010 at 09:59

ooh the anticipation!

Jb what you calling "an older gentleman", I've got a 21.02 for a 5K and i'm under 40, and i know that this is not an especially good for any age for a bloke, at a guess (and yes this is a guess)  something under 17 mins would seem to me to be a great time.

Where's Moraghan when you need him?

The top quintile in my age group on Fetch is <19:38. Second quintile is <21:21

Best time is 17:21.

Slowest is 44:21. YES!

Piece of string, innit. Safely build up to 100 miles per week for a few years, and you can do 18 mins. Provided "older" doesn't mean "pensioner". Although how sensible it would be to sacrifice much of "having a life" just to do a quick 5k is up to the conscience of the gentleman in question...
30/01/2010 at 10:04
I need to speed up on shorter runs, so i'm thinking of doing a 5K. How old are you JB?  I'm 41.
30/01/2010 at 10:06

The top quintile for ladies >23 years old is <23 minutes.

Best time is 13:54 - although that appears to be 3 mins faster than the next best, so might not be right.

(No it isn't - WR is only 14:11!)
