Did you lose much speed?

Yeah. We're only averaging about 7:45s, and 7:30s were okay, but when I tried to go sub sevens, it didn't feel good [so I didn't]. It is good that the running bud, is a cute gal, so that makes the suffering worth it.

I still want to break 1:30 some day, but perhaps my wish is in vain, as that 7:00 mark seems to cause me to break down injurywise. I know I'm a wimp but at least I try.

Default This is an interesting thread

I'm new to the site, but I found this to be an interesting idea. I'm always looking for some sort of motivation to make me workout more and I like the idea of having a forum like this to help me set goals and give a little bit of accountability.

I tried following the link from the first page of this thread to the site where I can supposedly enter times, but it tells me it doesn't exist anymore. Am I just technologically inept?

As for my 5K time; well I haven't been timed in many years, but my fastest ever official time was 15:36 (in high school, very flat course). I'm kind of excited to time myself tonight. I think if I hit 24 minutes, I'll be VERY happy with myself.

Welcome.

Runnercoug was maintaining that site, but I don't know if it ever got off of the ground.

Do you have an iPod Nano? Most of us are logged into the NikePlus system and have several challenges ongoing over there, both for speed and distance.

Best 5K time this morning. 23:20 is my new record. Also, I'm down to 176, 1 pound from my goal, and 27 pounds total lost since Jan 7th.

but I did it. That was 3 months ago, and I think I'd be 27ish but now. I've been running.

How far is 5K? Maybe I'll go out and run one to see how fast I am at it.
