I was just chatting with the IT bloke in work about running. He was saying he goes out and does 5 miles three times a week and that he had started playing touch rugby and that has really helped his running.
Anyway, I started being a clever dick and explaining that the bursts etc in touch rugby would compliment his running if he is just going out and jogging 15 miles a week at circa 8-9 m/m. He then said he started out at 8 m/m however he now averages about 5.20 m/m! He showed me his last run which is done on an app on his mobile and his average pace was 5.19 mm and mile 5 came in at 4.54 mm. It was clearly set to miles not k's. He did however say that he did mudrunner and it took 80 mins but he got there late and started at the back.
Surely this i an IT error? I have told him to leave his phone at home and plot a 3 mile route on google and just take a stop watch. He was a bit taken aback when i showed him where he would sit it in the national rankings!
