    Hey,

    Ran my first "official" 5k today in Brighton and wodnered what the average pace of TSR over this distance was...

    I was 182nd out of 301 runners today so know i'm slow but will be interesting to see how quick you guys can go...

    Poll is up.

    My "best" is 25:48 in training but only got 27:06 today...

    Gradient changed, and there was a huge hill going up, then a huge hill going down. Pretty slow time, I'm a sprinter anyway, not endurance which is why my time sucked compared to everyone else, as they were getting 19/20 mins

    PB is 24.04, but it's well over a year since I did that. There's definitely a 23:xx time there when this current injury heals.

    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...

    Considering you just ran a sub 4 hour marathon(i think) that's averaging a 28min 5k the entire way(ish)

    Thought your 5k time would be more around the 20 mins mark considering your high level of aerobic fitness...

    If your 25 mins time is accurate then it gives you a 5k time of around 19:15...
    That's good going...

    Also i love how on any poll people will come and pick a stupid answer...
    I could set the top answer to sub 12:30(better then WR pace) and you'd still get a few people clicking it.

    Ahh, how do you do distance/time measurements then?

    I use Sports Tracker(an app) on my phone when i'm running normally which tracks me via GPS...:cool:

    Of course today i just had to worry about running and the volunteers at my friendly local park run did the rest.

    That was me - 3:59 in Barcelona last weekend. I'm the kind of person who is built far more for endurance than speed. I can't go very quickly, but I sure can keep it up for a long time.

    MY best 5k time is 22 minutes + 50 seconds........did this a few weeks ago, and it was my first 'competitive' attempt.
    i was proud of this time.... until i found out that the guy from work who entered the race with me did it in just over 14 minutes! :| :| ok,so not olympic standard time or anything - infact his preferred distance is half- and full-marathon,so its not as if he prepared specifically to run this distance the fastest possible - but even with his minimal 5k training it is still less than two-thirds of my time...
    i'm not gonna lie: even though he finished first out of the 180 participant in the race (i was 87th/180) and i was happy for him and all that sh*t, i was also a little peeved off that that beanpole managed to beat me so comprehensively o_O
    next time i enter such a race i will insist on training with him to see if i could improve ;D

    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...

    yes he has much stamina. he also carries very little body weight around which must help (considering such distances are bad on the feet, ankles and shins)............he tell's me he is around 58kg when it comes to racetime, which is not a lot for 1.75metres tall

    he did half marathon in 1 hour + 11 mins last october (i travelled with him that weekend so can verify this).
    and last year did full marathon distance in 2 hours + 25...and he said he was disappointed with it. ¬.¬
