damn, that's moving. My PR (such as it is, only ran this race once, as a 16-year old, when it was 440 yards) is 57.6 and my only try as a master (when I was 47, doubling after a 2-mile) was 65.5
Not sure what prompted starting this thread, but for me speed (mile and shorter) is the biggest difference between 20s and 40's. I can still beat my younger self at 10 miles and above.
Are you saying that you are faster at 48? Because 58 should never be "easy" for a 57 guy.
I suggest giving all PR's:
25.8 @ 46
55.7 @ 44
2:06.5 @ 44
4:21 @ 43
9:28 @ 47
16:31 @ 44
I ran 60.4 starting out easy this year at 42.
I am more curious of how fast you top masters can run the last 400 meters on the way to a sub 17 5K?
Can any of you break 60 seconds in this situation?
Jeezus that's flying. I can only run 67 at 49 years old and I've had a few tries at it. 31 for 200.
Some very seriously fast times. I am more of a 10k-half runner.
no 400's and little work on top speeds with all training geared for longer races. Times at age 48 and at altitude so I put +/- sea level equivs. +/-
800 2:24 (2:24 sea level)
Mile 5:13 (5:10 +/-)
3000m 10:11 (9:50's)
5k road 17:17 (16:40)
10k 34:15 at sea level high 35's altitude
1:19 HM easy altitude course
I ran about 60 flat 440yd in HS indoor track and is still a pr.
Genesis, you sound a lot like that Joe Carnegie (?) guy, who runs weird distances and fast time trials and whatnot, and an occasional decent race, but avoids championships and record attempts that would confirm his claims completely. Am I close?
You guys have definitely perked my interest....I have never given thought to this, therefore I will have to get back to you once I record my time.
I have a lot to learn.
