Holy shoot sub 33.00 was that track or road
Cheers for the support guys. I don't fancy a half marathon, I work such odd hours that I don't think I could honestly keep up a training schedule. 10k will be a test for me :-) under an hour it is then. I'll leave the 33 mins for another day :-)
I did a sub 33mins when I was in my prime, would be quite happy with sub 53mins these days :?
But then againI'm happy to be riding my mtb which is far easier on my old bones
In my prime I ran 32 for 10k ( road and track ) with a sub 2:30 marathon - but I was very fit !! Now I aim for sub-40 10k's ( I'm 48 now and a bit past my running prime - lol ). The trick is in the pacing - aim to start conservatively as it always feels easier at the start of a race when you're surrounded by lots of other runners, then you can pick off the guys and girls that started off way too fast - a great confidence boost for you - a real bummer for them
