Went out this morning, not quite as cold as normal. It wasn’t fast, it wasn’t far BUT I loved it. Happy running 🏃♀️🏃♀️🤣
Nice early morning run: Went out this morning... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Lovely Shelley. Sometimes the little ones are the sweetest aren’t they? 🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
I would say that is fast. I do 7-5 km per hour speed! 🐌
That’s less that 7kmph that’s per km 🤣
Ok I’m going to hold my hand up and say I don’t have a clue actually what that figure means! Can you give me an idiots guide? On Strava it sometimes says 8. something and sometimes 7.5 ish. I don’t know what it means to tell if I’ve done well or worse x
Pace is how long it takes for you to run 1km. Kmph is how many km you’ll do in an hour at that pace. Does that make sense now lol
It says pace above it. One is 7.55 and the other is 8.10 /km So does that mean it takes about 8mins to do a km? I am so rubbish at stuff like this. All I know is I’ve lost energy since that virus I had the day after graduating and can only just manage 18-20 mins now 2x weekly. And it almost kills me 😱 Rubbish. But better than nothing. X
That means it either takes you 8min 10 sec or 7min 55sec to run 1km. Mine says it takes me 9min 16 sec to run 1km. Since I’ve graduated I’m struggling to get past 20 mins too and I haven’t been ill.
Strange isn’t it. That happened last summer when I graduated. Took me weeks to get back to 30 mins then broke my leg a week later!! We will get there x
Both are measures of pace/speed. You can either look at kmph (kilometres per hour); or time per km.
Or miles, of course!
The difference is that unless MJ actually ran 7.5km, her stats show a projected distance if she sustained her current pace.
Shelley’s show the pace she was running at for that km/those kms.
MelsieJay’s pace is 7.5 kmph (I think that’s what the 7-5 means, as opposed to 7’50”?).
Shelley’s average pace was 9’16” per km.
So if we convert MelsieJay’s kmph pace to time per km: 7,500 metres/60 minutes = 125 metres per minute. 1km/125m = 8 (handy!). MJ’s pace is 8’ per km.
If we convert Shelley’s pace to kmph then: 60 minutes/9’16” = 6.47kmph
Thank you, the club I’ve joined I’m in the back buddie gang, it’s nice to run with those at the same pace as well as on my own 😊
Not what you're looking for?

nothing worse than getting out of bed on a cold dark morning and going for a run, whereas if you do...
... and it was so lovely amid birdsong, flowering hawthorn hedges and slightly hazy sunshine.
Twas a rare early morning jaunt this morning, after simply not wanting to risk running in this...
So third run after holiday and I knew I had to get out there today or risk not getting my pre hol...
the wind in their hair, eh?
Happy running weekend, everyone.
