McF, I think a snowy 20 would be seriously hard work if there are a few inches of it on the ground, because it's much more effort to pick your feet up out of it. I obviously would not be doing 16 with 10 @ MP on a treadmill, however. I vote for either (a) find a runnable stretch in the snow and do it there. I did this in 2013, with 12 miles @ MP back and forth along the same 2 mile stretch of path. Or (b) do the long run but for the amount of time it normally takes to do 20 miles, not the full 20 if the going is a lot slower.
Well done Pete, but don't overdo it after the time off...
Don't say that, Skinny, my whole retirement plan is based on my strategy of not having children. Obviously there won't be a state pension by the time I retire and my work pension is being massively devalued by bastards, so I thought I could just use all the money I save on scooters &c to fund my old age.
I don't think anyone on here said that being lighter wasn't correlated with being faster, Ric, we were all just sceptical about the figures you were quoting as 'information'. I notice that age/weight grading calculator Phil posted a link to on another thread claims there is no advantage to most female runners in being under 110lb. As I'm not very much heavier than that, I don't think it's particularly inconvenient as I can continue to eat as much ice cream as I like.
