(over the course of about 6 months) to knock my 5K PB time down from around 24 minutes to 19:56!Admittedly, this time is not official. It was measured during one particular Thursday in April, at a 5K handicap race against the people at the Virgin London

Time to work out a training schedule. The triathlon is now 8 weeks away. That's more than enough time to give me a fighting chance of running a sub 20-minute 5K. I'm booked into the Standard Chartered Great City Race, which takes place 4 weeks
very high in the Barnard camp. Speed session this week (post illness): 3x200m with 30sec rest – 3 minute break (repeat 3 times)
. It's at this point that you start to become less efficient with your exercise. After about 15 mins or so of running the results were in. In a nutshell I've got a massive lung capacity but a relatively low FEV1, which is the force of air exhaled
