    4km in 35 minutes would be 14 minutes per mile and change. That's a pretty leisurely pace.

    The problem is that if he protects you, he risks open revolt from everyone else. Tricky problem, that one.

    By which he means not much more than a brisk walk.

    What do you have the treadmill set to? I might accept it if the incline is similar to Snowdon.

    Being new here, it is sometimes hard for me to tell which comments are jokes and which ones are serious.

    I would never encourage personal attacks here but there is sometimes a fine line between taking a joke too far and making an attack. I would generally ask nsidestrate what he thinks - Matthew said great things about him.

    Yes, my next goal is to finish a 10k while running the entire time (I want to do the whole thing without slowing down to walk during any of it).

    Bad news, Llan. Looks like you are going to have to muddle through with the same amount of abuse as ever.

    Well thats just great ...
    There is a big misunderstanding between the concept of talent and skill, talent you have naturally but skill is only developed by hours and hours of beating on your craft... nobody got to where they were without hard work.

    If it makes you feel better, nside also lands in the overweight category. He gets respect for his running CV though. (and only needs to lose a few pounds to move into the 'normal' band)

    I still genuinely wonder if your treadmill reports in miles...

    Its in km, according to my manual ... nobody can tell me 9km/h is a light jog because its near enough a sprint... not full out sprint but more than a leisurely pace.

    Has a top speed of 16km/h

    Yeah, I'd be a much better runner if I didn't love to eat so much. The problem is that the more I run, the more I feel I am permitted to eat. Its a problem. I'd really love to get under 200 lbs again, but I never seem to get there. I got down to 202 during my training last fall, but never got under.

    9km/hour is a lot faster than 4km in 35 minutes. 9km/hr is 10:45 per mile, which is not exactly speedy but well faster than the 14 mins/mile which was 4km in 35 minutes. I would say that the majority of people who run as a hobby are somewhere in the range of 9-11 minutes a mile.

    It always stuns me to contemplate the pace that elite marathon runners sustain. They are blazing out at WELL under 5 minutes per mile (closer to 4:30, in fact) which is about 17 km/hr (faster than your treadmill at max speed). For 2 hours. It boggles the mind. I could barely keep up with them for 100 meters.

    By the way, we have had some extraordinary runners as members. You may know that the Boston Marathon requires you to meet a certain standard for excellence, which is adjusted for your age. At my age, I'd need to complete a marathon in 3:30 hours. My actual result was exactly 4:30 and I honestly doubt that I will ever see the fast side of 4 hours. BernardDogs has done 3:10 and is about to run Boston for the third time in a couple of weeks. AuPanner used to run 24 hour ultra-marathons.

    There were some good posts in the old running thread

    It amazes me that people can run marathons even with "slow" times. For me the second wind isn't yet enough to keep me going long distances.

    My normal treadmill run would go something like this.

    8km for 10 minutes, walk at 5km for a minute, another 10 minutes at 8km, another minute walk and then a 13 minute or so back at 8km .. with the occasional 9km finish when i feel super human.

    I did start to not bother with the minute walk a while back but the last stint ii did i did not reach that level ...

    Im starting again tomorrow and ill do it every week day through the spring / summer ... im gonna try and reach this 5km in 30 minutes holy grail thingy .
