    me? 61kg female,on a regime of infrequent training + a steady diet of fastfood, managed to do it just under 25minutes last weekend.

    then there is my boyfriend (@ about 57kg), his best time of a few seconds over 14minutes at the start of this year, but has been finishing high 14s/low 15s consistently for a fair while longer.
    simply put, he would ****-juice all over you in any race....yet he is always humble enough to then shake hands with/congratulate as many of the other participants as he can afterwards - something i sense you wouldnt be capable of doing as you appear to be of the ******* variety.
    how fast would your bf run 5k if he put on 40 kg of muscle hmm? and whats he bench?

    OP you need to chill out on the validation thing dude. Drive and competitive spirit are healthy but if you allow yourself to be defined by the desire to be the best, or be seen to be the best, you run the risk of turning out a total douche.. and I should know, I was that guy once.. :rolleyes:

    who knows - but he'd almost certainly still be faster than you. it takes ages of fine-tuning getting a good running technique - same like you have probably have discovered on your muscle-growing journey.

    bench?
    ...
    yesyesyes, he has access to one of those.
    there is one in his back garden.
    sometimes he sits on it, sometimes he lies down on it.
    sometimes his neighbour's cat sits on it too.

    it is a nice looking bench.

    mhm. riiight.
    ...and what good will this do? o_o

    will this apparent 'spectacle' impress anybody (other than yourself)? because i very much doubt this.
    being a pointless person doing pointless things is not a good way to live life.


    i just hope that knowledge of other people being better than you at some kind of competitive venture doesnt vex you too much. x

    I'm pretty sure you are mentally ill. You need to see a psychiatrist, they may be able to help you. The whole world isn't about how much you can bench press, nobody really cares. You're not the strongest guy in the world, there are bigger people in the world than you. You don't weigh 95kg of 'pure muscle', you have bones?

    Ask me in about a month's time when I race a 5k properly for the first time in ages - hoping to finish in about 22-23 minutes. Ran one in just over 24 minutes about a year and a half ago. Not a fan of shorter stuff really, would rather feel the burn in my legs of a half or full marathon than the feeling of wanting to puke my guts out that comes with the territory in a 5k or 10k.

    This is all not very relative, you havn't specified where you did the 5km? Was it on flat ground, cross country, a treadmill? I do 5km in 25minutes cross country, on a treadmill i could quite probably shave a few minutes off that pace as running on a treadmill is so much easier.

    On flatground i'd probably hit around the 23minute mark but as i only run cross-country right now i couldn't tell you for certain.
