Your a big guy, thats a fairly decent time, nice one.Posted 5 years ago
I’m currently trying to get back into a fit state after about 3 or 4 months out of running. I did a Parkrun 5K a few weeks back to give me a foundation time as I’d never ran an official 5K before, even though I’ve ran Marathons and halfs, and a few 10k’s……
My time was 26m58secs.
Quite slow, but I reckon I can have that down to about 23mins by the end of March. I’m about 95kg just now, my marathon weight in May 2011 was 85kg.
good luck, keep it up. 😉Garry_LagerSubscriber
The park runs that Neil mentions are good if you can get to one. Did a few last year and was kicking off on 27, 28 mins (also weighing in at 100 +) and got it down to 22.30 ish without too much effort ( the actual run obliterated me but I mean it didn’t take much training or anything to see improvements, just reg park running on Saturdays). Running against people in a ‘race’ makes a massive difference – you can sit in with a group and get swept along with them.Posted 5 years agoWeaselMember
I started Parkrun in January and been chipping away each week, my best is 24.01. I’ve signed up for a 10km next month so trying to increase my distance and speed.
The Parkrun time can be cut down once the course dries out as we have 2 big muddy patches either side of a rugby pitch.
I also find Strava* a good training toolPosted 5 years ago
*other apps do the same thing
