What is a good time for 5k for a 14 year old girl

Posted: Yesterday at 22:54
Hard to tell. "Relaxed" doesn't really tell you much.
It would have to be a proper all out effort to benchmark.
There is a 14 year old girl at our parkrun that has done about 18.30

Pfitzinger Race Thread 2015

I'm back! Looks like there is loads to catch up on here.
I've kept to my word and have done no running for 14 days. Plenty of dog walking though.
The plan is to get a parkrun PB (currently 18.00 from April 2013) by the end of the year. I'm really busy in December so it will have to be by the 28th Nov, which gives me 13 weeks. I'll take next week as a "warm-up" week and then a 12 week 45-55 mile plan from the new Pfitzinger book.

Tomorrow's first run back should be fun. There probably a few kilos to lose as well.

Not sure whether it would be acceptable in the rules. Not allowed to accept barcodes on phones or when people write their number on their arms.

Do you include treadmill use on your shoe mileage?

I'll have to get myself a pair of those. Could save a fortune.

I don't see the point in recording specific shoe milage. I usually have a rough guide of how much they have done but usually judge on feel. If they feel knackered then they probably are. I've had shoes that have ranged from less than 300 to well over 1000 miles on them. Rotating 3 or 4 pairs helps and it's also an excuse to buy new ones.

The Eden project races are good value and your spectators also get free entry to the whole park so would save a fortune compared to turning up on a normal day

Why is it "disturbing"? It's a running race not a pop concert.

Great South Run!

It's only about 40 quid to sign up directly so I'm 60 quid better off.

What's the minimum fundraising amount??
That's the vital piece of info missing from the post.

Not a lot I can help with 3 weeks out. If you came and asked about 3 months ago you would have got loads of advice.
