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

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  ??? ???

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  ???

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  ;D

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.

Yes I still am. Tore my hamstring end of 2014 when I was finally going to achieve a sub 2 hour half but at mile 10 my hamstring tore and I limped to finish line. Last year my pace was horrible and still is but it's a work in progress. Just did my 10th half of the year Saturday and added miles as I'm doing the marine Corp marathon in 6 weeks. The humidity this summer was brutal even doing my long run on weekends starting at 5am

Do it.   You could easily combine some of your traditional workouts and free up conditioning days.

He could never do another rear delt isolation exercise again and look exactly the same.
