It was still really warm. It started at 10:12am, so I was running until just gone midday. Think it was about 25c while I was running for most of itDid you escape the worst of the heat Matt? I remember you saying you going on a run at around 10am (if memory recalls).
Thanks Paul. I finished in 2 hours and 6 minutes, which was 20 minutes faster than last years time.Nice one.
I would love to do a run like that.
What was your time Matt and on a related note, have you broken the 20 minute barrier yet?
You inspired me so I made an extra effort today.I did a 5KM Park Run on Saturday, and I got a new PB of 20:16, so I'm almost there.
Nice! I missed the 5KM Park Run this morning as I'm working nights this weekend. That's a bloody good effort though, given I'm out several times a weekYou inspired me so I made an extra effort today.
I wasn't sure what time you had posted but I was sure I was close to it; I did a 20:17
I'll never get back down to sub 20 minutes now at my age but I'm damn pleased with that
I used to be quite chunky. Lost almost 80lb (6 stone) since I started running.Interesting, pure cardio sends me crashing. Can't say I was ever out of shape except for one obscene summer where all I ate were waffles all day long (I bought a Belgian waffle press). It's been a habit since my old footy days. Been thinking of purchasing a multispeed bike but don't know where to start. I haven't ridden in years either.
Just guessing, but if I were to run full out, I could probably manage a few miles while staying under the 7:25 mark a mile.
Wow, big change. Is that Bali?
No, it's Cornwall in the UK (we do get some sun occasionally!)Wow, big change. Is that Bali?
My little summer of indulgence resulted in some BP issues, cholesterol issues because of the fat gain. Probably put on 2 stone of fat and water bloat in a three month span. I still eat like an animal, just in moderation. Oh and the exercise helps too.
Great scores. My doctor delivers his results in ng/dl whereas hospitals here seem to only give info out in m/ml (millions per microliter). I don't have my scores from 2005 or the ones from earlier this year saved like you do. But from what I recall my latest yearly resulted in lower LDL cholesterol (Just fish oil and exercise), BMI would be irrelevant in my case, lower overall bodyfat, and an increase in testosterone. Apparently I'm hovering just north of 1,200 ng/dl. Doctor asked me if I was taking any superficial doses but to my knowledge I wasn't. I can only attribute it to lower stress and better sleep.No, it's Cornwall in the UK (we do get some sun occasionally!)
I've had doctors referral notes due to my health previously. In 2007 we had a health test at work, and the same company did one in 2012
