Agreed, but that's not happening any time soon. No

I use km so it's a bit hard for me to convert... hang on... 1 over 1.6 is... 5 over 8 so 9 min / mile is 5.6 min / km. Holy shit. You're not exactly slouching around Tongue
Thanks. For me it's about competing against myself. 9 minute miles in itself is pretty good, especially for long distance runs. But I know I used to view that as practically walking in terms of what I used to be able to do. But I've accepted it. Can't stop the aging process. Tongue Still, I'd love to qualify for the Boston Marathon some day and, right now, I'd have to average 8 minutes/mile.

Lol! Smile Yeah, the hard part about treating running injuries is you have to stop running for most of them. No one wants to do that so people tend to get back out there earlier than they should. In fact, I ordinarily wouldn't have risked a 10 mile run after my achilles tendon pain, but I'm trying not to stray too far from my 18 week marathon build up schedule. That's exactly the kind of thing that can backfire. I was lucky (at least so far).

8 x 26 = 208 min = 3 h 28 min - are you sure??? Seems like a helluva quick qualifying time? Plus I can't run that fast anyway Tongue Yet.

Which is why I dread the day... Unsure

RE: Atheists who work out
Today I warmed up on the elliptical for 10 mins, then did 14 sets of squats, 5 sets of lunges and 5 sets x 50 reps for leg extensions. Now that the ol man was warmed up, I then did back and biceps, 8 triple sets for a total of 24 sets of seated cable rows, lat pulldowns and dumbell curls...then I noticed I had stopped sweating...a good indication of it was time to end the workout, total time 2.4 hours Thumbsup

Did chest and tri's yesterday for almost 3 hours, to say that I am sore is an understatement Drooling

I lift things up, and put them down.

Yeah, according the current qualifying times for my age group (50-54), I have to finish in 3:30. I've got work to do! Sadcryface And the standards tend to get tougher with time because more and more people want to run in it. It used to be the 45-49 age group that was 3:30 and I think my age group was 3:35 at that time (a couple of years ago).

You can probably get to 3:30, you're close. But you may be in a different age group.

3:05... whoa, that's a 7:04 minute/mile pace. If you ever do that, I will Bowing

Back on the road after two weeks off. 4.5 miles at 10:23 min/mile pace. Amazing how fast it goes away. Before I got sick I was running 4.5 miles in the low 9 min/mile pace consistently.

Still slower than those 6 minute miles you used to knock out easily. Shocking

Glad to hear you must be feeling better and are back out there. Your pace should come back fairly quickly. Your body is probably still getting its strength back after the sickness.
