Recent advice

“I used to run cross country. My team was very serious into running. It has given me a passion for running for what could last a lifetime. Although I'm not as fast as I was about a year ago (given I don't run cross country anymore), my PR is 18:20. So I have broken 30 minutes by a substantial amount. I know I could easily break 30 minutes again as of right now.”

Michael C Run a 5k in under 30 minutes Challenge

Michael C 2.1 miles in 20 minutes tonight (average pace 9:30). Last years PR was 31:30 minute 5k. It was also the first year I had ever ran a 5k in my life. Did six of them in total... from 43 minutes for the first one to 31 minutes at the end of the season. This is my year for the sub 30 minute 5k. I already have five races scheduled this year... first one is in 2 weeks!
