This weekend I ran in two 10k races, the first a serious race I managed 51m and the second a Rudolph run in 54m. I also managed a HM in 1h58m24s in October.
My starting point was probably when I was 16 and was so unfit and fat I struggled to run 100yds in our school cross country and walked round the course with my games teacher swearing at me. I then did little or no exercise for about ten years. I started running when I was 25 as part of a get fit regime, got as far as being able to run 30m, then injured myself. I then joined a gym which I stuck at for well over a year losing weight and getting fitter then I decided to run a marathon. Managed it in 5h13m over a year ago.
Basically I;ve been running ever since, getting fitter and as a result faster. My fat stomach still looks like there is a good stone to lose. However I never thought I'd ever be able to be anything but a back of the pack runner and my HM and 10k have put me somewhere towards the back of the middle pack.
My question is how fast am I likely to be able to get my times down to?
I don't expect to be breaking any world records, but is there a way of working out some sort of physical maximum you can reach?
