rules:

3. an official 5k race time is fine [but not required]
4. 3.0 miles is not a 5k
5. don't be a dick
6. Bonus pts if your run-tracker service shows a new 5k PR in the result(s)
7. ampsman can use that uphill both ways 5k that he runs in 20:00 and thats fine
8. canadians feel free to convert a 5k to whatever metric you feel appropriate

I will be using this post as motivation to try and increase my speed and pacing at this distance and hope to set a new PR

I'm slow as fuck I know

I won't be running an official one (MS Society 5k) until May 3 (I think it's May 3) but I'll throw one up on GPS.

*except for Rule 2!


And how is cheating defined? If I do 400 meter intervals and only turn on the GPS during the fast intervals until I hit 5k, is that cheating? I would never do that. Just curious.

rules:

if there's more than a 1 second delta between moving/total time I'll assume this rule has been violated \:D
eg, doing 16x400 speed-work on like 20 minutes rest \:D

I'm all for a timed event but free is better.

I'll go knock one out this week or next. Don't expect anything earth-shattering from me. \:D

Mapmyride will auto-pause, but my "pausing" is walking. My time will be slow, so cheating it by sprinting then stopping isn't really worth the effort for me. My fast run is a slow run for most of the people here.

I'll run mine on an 8% grade to level the playing field.

I'll probably use an energy-returning HS track in the #3 lane so I can lay down some sweet 8 minute miles \:D

I'll be out unless for some fluke I feel different.

I'm running 11-12k 3 times a week, but my groin/abs/hips are fucked so I can't push my pace at all. I thought my hernia was back, ultrasound was negative, so I'm trying some physio. It's like my legs turn to stone and my stomach hurts.

If we're deducting vagina points, you're time will be warp speed. Engage.

I'll probably do one tomorrow. Maybe I can top that, but not likely at the moment.

I'm in that realm on my last 12k. I'll take my 45 second subtraction too!

This was km 5 of my last 12 (Wednesday):



Never really checked my history, but my fastest 5k on the app was 22:23 in an 8k run, but looking at it, it's choppy so I think I must have had some GPS tower bouncing adding to my distance. Close enough.

I ran 10 miles in ~89 minutes with 1,200' of vert and 1,200' of descent yesterday and I felt fried afterwards

I'm going to do my 5K on a 3.1 mile downhill

No cheat, though I did have to run through some snow so I will subtract another 30 seconds.

Fuck stickaz and this thread. Figured Id hammer the first 3.1 of my trail run today just to see what I could do. Totally fucked the the 6.5 I had to do after.

Managed a 21:48 on some pretty rocky fire road, with some good sized climbs and exposed 90 degree heat. Excuses excuses I know, but hardly ideal 5k Par material.

I'll do it on the road next week.

Strava file shortly.
