I don't really know what that all means, because we use proper units of measure like min per Km!  Grin

As a rule, I don't negotiate with foreigners, but for the sake of discussion I guess it's a 4.5 minute kilometer.

Now I'm even more confused  Huh Huh

4.5..... does that mean 4 mins 50 seconds or is the .5 as in 4 mins 30 seconds?

This is like trying to work out the square root of the circumference of chaos's cankles  Huh

4:30.  All I did was take 22 / 5.

You may now judge me appropriately.

Ah I see, yes that is quite simple.

Any tips for running with a backpack?  I often commute by running, but hate running with a bag

I train with a back pack often - it's a rucksack from www.goruck.com

What I've found is key is that you need one that sits high and tight on the back...so it doesn't bounce and kill your shoulders.

Also, depending on the weight used, it's best if you alter your running style to where you "roll" the heel to the front to minimize impact, since running with weight can mess up your joints.

There is a large parking deck near me -

Been doing a lot of stairs w the weight vest - shuffle across the top level and back down, go back up, etc - been doing that for 30 minutes at a clip - then a 30 minute ruck/shuffle w the weight vest.

Interesting point on the running technique, I hadn't considered that.

Sunday was a 13 mile run with 1,900 feet of climbing at 8 mins per mile pace. Thanks google  Grin

Had a half marathon race yesterday, 1 hour 36 mins.
Probably the worst race I've ever run. Went off way too quick and it was a complete blow out in the 2nd half of the race.
