how many of you pansy boy runners can bench 100kg hmm?
I reckon the guy who ran away from the sabre toothed tiger survived longer than the caveman that tried to bench it.



I ticked slower than 35 because I've never tried but I imagine it would take me hours.

Nice one. You're winning from TSR so far...

Although when i did a search there was a thread from like 3 yearsa ago with no poll and a few people claimed to have sub 20 minute 5 k times...
Also depends on the anaerobic threshold, not critical though. And interval work ftw.

I went through the first 5k of a 9.4k race in approx. 17:50. Not sure if that counts. :p: Never ran a 5k competitively.

Yea, if anything it's more impressive as you couldn probably go faster if you didn't have to run another 4.4k afterwards.

You should go for a 5k time. See if you have a local parkrun. It costs nothing. You just register online then turn up with your barcode...

Think my nearest one is Manchester, unfortunately. There are a few 5k's coming up I believe. But my priority is 800/1500/3000m this season. Are you looking to do some of the faster stuff, or aiming to improve your 5k?

Improve my 5k mainly. Maybe even hit up the odd 10k when ones appear.

If he can run it in 14 minutes then he must be amazingly fit. The winning time at my 5k was like 16:45 i think. That's nothing to be peeved off about...

Being beaten by several people in their 60s/70s when i'm suppose to be a young fit 19 yr old is a LOT more embaressing...

What are his half marathon and marathon times? They must be impressive...

And summersofas, just because you're too fat to waddle around a 5k in a decent time doesn't mean you can resort to your 1 good lift as a defense mechanism... Work on your running and improve it...
I have 2 impressive lifts (my OHP and Bench)

just ran 5.15k in 26:14, not bad for a 15 stone man

I'm trying but am focusing on weightlifting for the last few months so running has taken a back seat...

Am going to be on a forced break on weightlifiting when i go back to devon next week and the nearest gym with squat rack/bench is 10+ miles away and only transport is a bicycle unless i wanna pay a few hundred to unsire the motorbike...

Will try and get out for a few runs of about 10k to build up a decent base and have a few interval sessions as well so i cane come back and enter another 5k in like 4 weeks time and kick my current time's ass...

Only ever done 5ks in sprint triathlons, so off the back of swim and bike. Fastest i've done for the 5k in a tri is 20.15, but reckon i could easily go sub 20 on a standalone 5k.

17.45 as a PB before I got hit by a car about 2 months ago. Went for a run again today to see how much i've lost in speed and can still manage an 18 minute 5k.

It helps to be skinny as **** for this haha.

Impressive stuff.

Kicking ass as the fastest girl on TSR and iirc your lifts are up there with the best from the girls on TSR as well, And at something crazy like 48kg(i don't stalk i just spend too much time on here lately)... Honest...


Also, how does everyone judge distance/time for their runs?
Smart phone GPS apps? Proper races only? Or just deccent guesses?

Well you may be strong, but we can outrun you if you try to get us!

As for my time, I don't have a clue. I ran a marathon last weekend so haven't been doing 5k speed runs for a while. I'd estimate at around 20-23 mins, very rough estimate though...
