OK, so I flagged the obvious outliers and now 10 dead would get me second overall. First is 7:55 for 1.7 miles downhill at 4:37 pace which was on a 1:18 run of two laps of Richmond Park (13.5 miles at 5:49 pace). Run or cycle, all on the road, looks like a cycle.
PMJ - forget those scruples. Check the wind direction before you choose your segment for the day, and always get a flying start: I think the clock starts ticking as soon as you enter the segment, not when you leave the start so if you stand at the start for a minute and then go, that minute is included in your time.
I had that in mind but still seem to be missing a few things. I was out yesterday in Richmond Park (so maybe your stomping ground) and I do like the run from the the Star and Garter, down Sawyer's Hill to Roehampton Gate which is about 1.7 miles. I was only out for a gentle run and my 11:47 at 6:52 pace puts me 49th. OK, so if I gave it some I reckon I could get down to under 10 minutes on this but 10 dead would put me 10th on the segment, WTF! How much faster do I need to go, so the top is 3:55 for 1.7 miles: http://www.strava.com/activities/176419601
Seems cyclists cannot use strava so we get all their muck on the running tables.
13.36 miles at lunch, first run over 13 miles since end of March. Starting to think about form again.
Anyone know much about strava etiquette on segments? I cross a lot of segments and wonder if I should target one segment a day an get the course record or if that is bad form and should do my runs and let the segments happen.
