Well done for being first woman. So that's over 4min per km.

30/01/2010 at 11:06
TNH was the nearest!!

Oh dear, the majority were right and I was wrong! Totally full of shit and the boasting was all fake. Tssk, that's the last time I believe anything I read on the internet!

That would put you in the top decile of the Fetch ladies table over 5km.

The equivalent decile time for men is 18:02.

UK V40 rankings, 2009 - 5k road

Rank:

1  15:02
10  15:32
100  16:45
(138 inside 17:00)

I've only ever run one 5k road race, 16:57 I think.  Unfortunately I'm 3 years away from being a V40 and the rankings for V35 only go down to 16:45.  Best get out again and convert my 16:19 track time to the road. 

Has she finished yet?

It was a "boasting substantiation fail", phil. Missed it by well over a minute. Poor!
30/01/2010 at 11:12

Yep

Check back a page.

The equivalent time for males on Fetch is 18:02.

So is Jokerman a sub 18 runner? And where is his proof?

Just askin...














Oh, silly me, there won't BE any proof will there, because he's our resident Man of Mystery.

Perhaps he could consider putting up? It might enhance his credibility...

x-post, oops!

Good show D2D. Still a fair way from sub-20 but since you're new to racing such a short distance I think there's potential for a quicker time simply from getting used to the discomfort level that's possible to stomach.  Were you throwing up at the end?    Find a nice flat course without steps (!) and you'll be laughing!

I'd put my money on him being a pretty decent runner, might be proved wrong though.

Wasn't throwing up at the end but felt sick from the off

Going to do something with my weekend now & not sit posting on RW.

Have a good one all.

We'll never know though will we?

Our friend from yesterday was a self-proclaimed expert as well...

He works in a shoe shop.

No excuses required D2D, an excellent time.  Well done.

A bit of a middle ground result in terms of the RW Forumites speculation.  Not fast enough to quite live up to what the training times indicated was possible, but fast enough to be a very good time, showing improvement from the recent 10K. 

Maybe we should all start doing Long "Scheduled" Runs?

He PMd me and so I asked him a running question. I await the answer.

Thanks Artie, I admit I wasn't as fast as I thought (in this race - I have been faster on the tread and in training) but now that I know the route & can take into consideration the steps/slight incline, I'm keen to beat it next time.

Kinda wish I hadn't biked 8 miles & ran 0.5 on the tread last night now. Next time, I'm completely resting.

We learn from our mistakes. 

Very well-organised event & friendly atmosphere

Think he's too busy insulting someones mum, JB!

Shall we open the book on D2D's Milton Keynes half marathon time then? 

I've plugged her (unofficial) 5k time into McMillan and it's suggesting 1:39.  I'm gonna give her revolutionary training plan and penchant for longer distances the benefit of the doubt and suggest she could target sub-1:35.

Artie - I'm sticking with my Long Scheduled Hangover today, but I've got a Long Steady Slowish Run Scheduled for tomorrow.

30/01/2010 at 11:26
You can bet on people on Fetch, on nothing more than there predicted times/training log, so why not?
30/01/2010 at 11:28

Am I ever going to race pressure-free again?

I feel sick.

I'm going back to bed.
