You guys know where this is going....you''re gonna be in the 100/100 on your 100th birthday doing a 100minute run
i wanted to do a number play for my birthday today. run 10k in minutes of my age. shut it down at 5k as I was going to be off. O well, at least I have some delicious post run home made polish pasteries made by my mom to enjoy (makowiec)
It gets easier beating your age for running a 10km once you cross 30. Sub 30 min 10km is pretty rarified. Once you get to 33 a lot of 33 year olds can do it. Once you get to 35min lots of 35-50 year olds can do it. Once you get to 40 min a lot of 40-60 year olds can make the number.
Once you get to 55 not that many 55-70 year olds can do that anymore, but there are a bunch of 55 year olds who can still hit waaay sub 40 and down to 35 minutes.
So unless you are under 30 years old, beating your age in minutes is not a massive feat :-) I think rolldown who did the 57;57 run on his 57th birthday in Iqaluit can still run around 37 minutes!!!
I think a better one is running 50x200m coming in for the 200's on the number of seconds for your age. Age 35 you get 35 seconds for the 200m, age 40, you get 40 seconds, age 50 you get 50 seconds....and so on. It really does not work if you are under 30 though.
