    Jogging/running

    I do 10 km in about 70 minutes (can't run all the way through, maybe 30-35 minutes followed by alternate jogs/walking). I want to get under an hour for 10 km.

    Last year I did a half marathon in about 2 and a half hours which I was pretty pleased with.

    Just cannot do it. When I used to go to coaching for cricket, running was always the hoop I had to jump through to get through to the actual playing. It somehow stuck in my psyche and I find it very difficult to do now. Due to this, my workouts were restricted to just strength training. Started doing some HIIT sprints recently. Way more fun.

    I love to run just have really ****ty stamina.

    I'd probably run more if the air wasn't so terrible in HK. Treadmills aren't the same.

    I can run for reasonable distances if I do it as part of a game/sport etc... But **** running for the sake of running. Get bored after a handful of minutes.

    Love cross country running, especially if it's wet. Knees are a bit buggered though, and my pace is well down on my youth. This time last year, I was doing 10km in about 52 minutes. This year, I'm doing 5km in 25 minutes but not running anywhere near as much. Running 10km in 50 minutes and keeping my fitness at about that level is my kind of aim. When I was 20ish, I ran 1,500m in 4:31 as my record, but that's a helluva long time ago now!

    I run with a group after work, that does help with motivation.

    If you can't really run for the whole 10k then I think you need to do some other sort of cardio to prepare yourself (slow cycling, long walks even), or you need to have a look at your running technique.

    yeah that's it for me too. I'd rather do repeat sprints than jogging

    Techniques definitely a thing, as is getting the right footwear, but TBH some of us are that unfit that we need to work upto a basic again....

    I remember the days when I could easily do sub 5 minute miles.they were about 10 years ago now alas. Think at a push I might be able to push a 5:30-5:45 for 1k now... but the next K would take about 8-9:00

    I personally don't believe in cardio. It's a myth imo.

    I generally go at about 4:30-4:45/km according to runkeeper. Was running about 50k a week a few years back, now it's more like 25, and only when I want to get out of the house...Pace has stayed the same, staying power has dramatically declined.

    In school I won gold twice in the 1500 meter race. Both times there were about 10 participants including myself with no training whatsoever. What I've learned is that the key to win is to look as confident as you can. Show no weakness or tiredness. For me it was about beating the opponents, not the race. Both times if I had run 10 meter more than the 1500 I actually ran, I would have died. But if you, from the stands, actually saw me running, you would think that I was an olympic champion who's done it a thousand times before.

    The second time I ran, there was another guy adopting the same method as me. The only thing you can do then is to hope that he breaks first. When both of us were running alongside at the same pace, I even contemplated if he was actually good, if he had actually done it before, but even then I never broke my act. Thankfully for me, he must have contemplated the same thing because in the last round, he quit.

    Rare photo of Burner at the conclusion of his 1500m race - proof he indeed looked like an olympian.

    The fertang left knee is totally ****ed as a legacy of running on roads between the ages of 20 and 30 - my advice is stick to cross country and get the best shoes you can afford
