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...

I need to speed up on shorter runs, so i'm thinking of doing a 5K. How old are you JB?  I'm 41.

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!)

I imagine I would probably kark it if I tried for 18 minutes.

A young girl making fake boasts about her athletic prowess on the internet? Heaven forbid!

When i did the entirely fictitious Ambridge marathon I claimd 1:59:59 on Fetch.

Got in lumber for that.

I hope she doesn't trip at the start. That will cost her 2 minutes.
I give her 21.48 for effort.

It's a beautiful sunny morning, blue skies and everything, so 'm going for a run now. I'll have to log on later and see what D2D's time is!

JB - Athletics Weekly has recently published a listing of age-graded reults for 5k to Marathon during 2009 - worth looking up if you're interested.

For Men's 5k top times are
Vet80 = 23:54
Vet75 = 24:30
Vet70 = 20:33 !!
Vet65 = 18:33

there's some quick buggers out there

How long doe's it normally take Parkrun to update the web results?

Come D2D, it was an hour and a half ago, post your results, please!

...You don't normally spend this much time away from the forum!

Excuses, excuses.

First off - I was the only one in a vest. It was bloody freezing, the cold got in my chest & there was a pretty nasty stretch of ice on the last k.

Also, a slight hill & some steps to climb - so not an entirely flat road race.

I know you're all dying to know though so...

(According to my Garmin - the actual results will be on the site around 3pm today)

21:30

12th place

First woman to cross the line

Good show!
30/01/2010 at 11:04
Well done anyway
30/01/2010 at 11:05

Well done! Sub 7m/m! And first woman!

 

...now i can go out!

30/01/2010 at 11:05
well done!
30/01/2010 at 11:05

Not really.

Kind of disappointed that I didn't get a sub20, but I'm going next weekend when there's no ice & will wear more clothes. I will get that sub20!

Happier about first female to cross the line than my time

(Oh and obviously that I proved JM wrong!!!!!!!!! He thought I wouldn't get under 21:40)
