Me & slinky on club run

Me & slinky on club run

Yes, we were out on club run this morning, slinky's first time and did well over 5k & tackling a very steep hill. The lady on the far left of the photo got a pb at Parkrun yesterday of 24m 24s excellent for someone coming up to 60, but she has done 77 Parkrun's, and inspires us all, of course she's faster than me over 5k, but I can beat her on a 100m sprint..😀

Odd question Dave.. what sort of speed do you do on that sprint..? :) I have been doing a few sprints at the end of runs... and want to know how slow I am..:) Also.. I still work in yards which does not help!!!! ( I know what 100 yds looks like)!!!!

Don't know really floss! I'm no Hussain Bolt, I'm not a fast runner generally, which goes from 7.3 km/min to 8.3 km/min as I start to tire at 30 mins, so a guess really, a sprint speed 6.3km/min? I'll look back on my Garmin data and see if I can find it...

It was 6.332 km/min 5.888 mph

Slow compared to Usain Bolts recorded 30mph top speed and an average of 23.5mph..😊

Are you going to make a late entry into the Olympics then floss?😁

No..just curiosity really. I am regularly doing 3K, in round about 18 minutes.. then I slow down! :) But have been doing short sprints right at the end of my runs...just to see how I go :)

I have a 180 m stretch, which I run in approx 52.6 seconds...so .. Usain has nothing at all to worry about... ! :)

I'm repointing the patio today, when I get out tomorrow I'll see what I do over 3k, but suspect it will be slower. Would like to get a tad faster..😊
