It's in the title really - the pacers group for get you round is somewhat vague about the pace

we run-walkers come in all sorts of paces

what sort of pace will the jog bit be?

i emailed RW and was told 11mm - so i guess as good authority as you get!

that's the same pace as the just under 5:00 group!

I hoped it might be a tad slower :<(

I know there's a 1 min. walk break every 5 mins but 11 min/miling sounds a bit fast for a "get you round" pace, given they have a 11 min/miling pacing group anyway.

Even when I was aiming to run the whole thing I was going to be going at 11:30 min/miling (for just over 5 hours) and all my LSRs have been around 12 min/miling (with walk breaks every 3 miles or so not 5 mins) - not sure I'll be able to keep up.

Depends on you -jogging pace usually means "are you able to hold a conversation while running" so something like a minute per mile slower than your normal training pace.

I know some club boy racers that jog around at a "comfortable" 6 minute miles in a group while others can jog around @ 12mm

that's odd Ook coz I read that this is how you are supposed to "run" being able to converse -

Feels a bit fast for me too - i might have to just try and set my own pace - always a problem but hey

Depends on what you mean by run
- to me "run" means flat out racing (or 7m/m); anything else is jog (9 m/m) or training (8m/m)

but jog for 'get you round' people is not going to be your jogging pace,OOK!

get you round run quite fast
they usually come in about 5.30

I have asked RW for clarification. They say that the running bit of this will be between 11 - 11.5 min miling, but that does not take into account the walk breaks. They aim to finish between 5.15/5.30.

does it matter what pen you have on your number or can you move up in the same pen as the pacers?
18/04/2006 at 11:51
I understand that you can move back to a slower pen, but not forwards to a quicker pen
18/04/2006 at 11:53
so if you are far back you just have to see if you can catch them!
18/04/2006 at 12:05
yes but don't try and do it too quickly, otherwise you'll burn out!

I now th theroy but in practice ....

maybe ill just hold back til later....im scared!!

Does anyone know of any other pacing groups, RW or otherwise, that pace for slower than the RW Run-Walk group?
Not sure I can keep up with 11m miling..
31/03/2007 at 20:08
I couldn't keep up with 11 m/miling of continuous running but don't want to run/walk either. My slow run pace is about 12m/mile (I just did a 20 mile run at that pace so I'm guessing that's what I'll do on the day).

Perhaps we should start our own pacing group Michelle...

The get you round pacer starts pretty close to the back. (pen 9?) Although the running is @ 11mm, they run for 5 minutes, then walk for one. When I followed them 2 years ago, it came out at around 12 mm on average, so you'll probably keep seeing them Jennsie!

Ah right, that's helpful Diana, thanks! It might be nice to have some support and encouragement from other people, even if I choose to keep running (I only do that because I find it so hard to get going again if I walk). Are you doing FLM this year?
