Just read our Flick’s recent achievements, 10K PB last Saturday and followed up with a 3rd best 5k that she described as a knackered plod.
I think I will forever name my 3rd best 5k as the knackered plod.
This prompted me to think about perhaps for a bit of fun in coming up with my own exertion scale and perhaps rename my understanding of even the names I use for walking,Jeffing,shuffling,jogging, running,threshold,sprinting,long pace,happy pace, all day pace and any distance and severity, endless really.
As I am male and interestingly Flick used a male term, I think 🤔,
here are a couple of my thoughts for renames on an exertion scale 1-10.
5k 3rd best PB, shuffling/jogging/ Niko Niko, that just has to be a knackered plod.🤔
Any distance flat out, sprinting, that is balls out.🤔.This is 10.
10K in a hour, hernia hour.
Lordi, do not know what to come up with for these sub performances on any distance.
Marathon/ultramarthon happy hernia pace. 🤔
0 is couch.So couch cough, test will definitely be needed at sometime and more.🤔
Have a go for a bit of fun.
Maybe a new language and training regime awaits and challenges the traditional and the latest HIT and mitochondria renewal methods that do have proven results of fitness and health improvements and life extension.
