📣 COMPLETELY USELESS RANDOM STAT 🚨
The global average height for a man is 5ft 8.3 inches. It would take a total of 2,813 men, each lying down, to cover the distance of a 5k parkrun 🤓
Nice mile time there g-dawg.
Gul- why do you feel your number is almost up running wise?
Poacher, good to hear from you. I quite fancy a stint at duathlon. Now im a v45 I've looked at the 2019 age group GB qualifiers and the times obtained by those selected and whilst I'm much stronger than many on the running, my only gauge on the bike is what I could cycle 20m at on my old rd bike, and that doesn't leave me too far down. It's just the hassle and cost of getting a TT bike and putting the time into getting into that.
Jab sorted this morning. Getting the fluids in me now and paracetamol as advised. Easy 5m before it this morning. Factored in a rest day tomorrow.
Paocher, yes I am not keen on getting on one on an open road. Is a TT bike really necessary over a decent racer though?
MsE- I do 2-3 spin classes a week under my schedule and noted on facebook memories that I did my first class 12 years ago yesterday so been at it a while. Also Lewis' sister in law is a triathlete and coach and so works at NLC as a triathlon coach.
I've been cycling in various forms since about 2002 when I was cycling to work through to 2015, then a decent stage into mountain biking and so on and I know from my spin stats that I have a reasonable degree of bike fitness.
I think my running ambitions are too strong this year to switch focus. I want to make the most of my current shape. It is something perhaps for next year maybe, I'm only just into v45 so will be in the younger portion for a while.
Yes, I really don't much like the idea of hurtling around the roads on a TT bike!
I did a sprint duathlon in 2009, before I was ever into running. I faired well in the running part, but I was clueless about the bike scene and I was on my £200 trek mountain bike. I finished the first 2.5k run quite high up the field then got passed my about 80% of the field on the 10m bike course, with people commenting a they passed that they couldn't believe I was doing it on such a bike, along with a sense of wonderment when early riders passed me as to how I was so far up the field with such kit. I then spent the 5k at the end overtaking people again. It was a learning curve for sure!
I think I've dodged any immediate side effects from my jab. Felt a bit tired last night and a little nauseous but feel 90% today.
