I'll have to update my numbers later, but right now I'm training for a fall half marathon, and with an awesome running community I'm going to have plenty of chances to lower some of these numbers

 

1 mile 5:55

5k 20:15

10k I haven't done one in years

Half marathon 1:36:44

Hi everyone

 

Great idea!

 

Added my half time. First attempt was in training and second was the actual race in Sleaford, Lincolnshire this Feb. I was more than chuffed about the time difference!

 

Any advice on Paleo fuel during long runs?

I've had success with dried pineapple, nuts and cheese. A mate of mine eats coconut oil straight from the jar. A few carbs definitely won't hurt either. I know a few people who go for bean burritos with corn tortillas, which give carbs and complete proteins. Try a few things out and see what works for you.

Accidental ultra?! That needs some explanation!

 

So... we signed up and ran the Texas Marathon which started in a park type thing. Well, the police officer leading the elite runners out of the park followed the 5k route out and not the Full route, and it added roughly 1.5 miles to the full. Reports were anywhere from 27.4-27.9

 

So yeah...

Woot!  I'm on the board!  Third place for the 10-mile distance after my first attempt today.  I'm so stoked.

Thanks! Mix in some tempo and speed work runs once or twice a week and it will come!

Yep, last year when I was more focused on speed, I was a bit faster. This year I've been pretty focused on gaining some upper body strength and my running speeds have reflected divided focus.  However, this morning I did my best mile of the summer: 7:11 - totally delighted to get that!

Fantastic! That's awesome and definitely deserves a WOOT!

Something similar happened at a marathon in Chicago in 2005. (I have no involvement, but it made the news.)
