Encouraged (and still gobsmacked ) by my "elevation to the peerage" in this challenge,
I have had a second attempt at the mile. I am pleased to report an improvement of 5.6 seconds.
The time was 6:27.5
Weight is still 72.7 kg
Philip Price
84 Lwt.
70kg. 178cm.
Will you still read me, will you still need me, now I’m eighty-four ?

Did a 5x1 mile session (don't worry, only two "proper" intervals, rest were warm up and cool downs) a couple of days ago. Fastest was 5:17.5 @ 41 years of age, and currently 91kg. Will update once I've done an all out session [-o<

Cheers Mat. Kinda terrifying that - 5:17.5, and it wasn't all out! :shock:

Improvement for me today by 1.5 seconds. I'm also a year older than I was on my first attempt, so that will improve my adjusted time further! :lol:

Second attempt at this. I actually planned to do it rather than the ad hoc attempt last time and from a better warm up regime - 21 seconds quicker:

05:36.6 1609 30 163 01:44.5 1352 306 - fastest time this season.
00:42.1 200 31 145 01:45.2 1333 300 Not quite
00:42.0 400 30 153 01:45.0 1340 302 On target
00:42.3 600 28 146 01:45.7 1318 296 Slipping a bit
00:41.8 800 32 161 01:44.5 1355 307 Getting back
00:41.5 1000 30 164 01:43.7 1378 313 Right on the average
00:41.8 1200 30 179 01:44.5 1355 307 Holding it
00:42.0 1400 31 175 01:45.0 1340 302 Slipping again
00:41.4 1600 32 175 01:43.5 1386 316 Getting it back
00:01.8 1609 33 175 01:40.0 1504 350 Balls to the wall (for the last 9 metres :lol: :lol: )!

Plan was 600 @ 1:45 [email protected]:44 [email protected]:43 and then flat out.

Weight still 104kg :roll:

Thanks Mikkel. I'll maybe have another go before the end of the month. I'm still testing limits after a summer season of just ticking over so there may be a couple more seconds to come. Mustn't peak too early though as there are one or two competitions that !'d like to enter this winter. :lol: :lol:

Thanks Alan S for posting the new table. =D> Never thought it would make that much difference.

:shock: That is an alarming overweight when only six :!: My daughter weighed that when she was 13 and 168cm tall.

These data are average weight and hight of 0-5 years old boys in Denmark

Average data for boys
age /weight /length
Newborn /3,550 g /52 cm
1 y /10.1 kg /77 cm
1.5 y /11.3 kg /82 cm
2 y /12.7 kg /88 cm
3 y /14.7 kg /97 cm
4 y /16.6 kg /105 cm
5 y /19.1 kg /112 cm

PS: Highest weight for 5y old was 25.6 and 126 cm

What can I say? I was big for my age! (Actually, I don't have a clue what weight I was when I was 6 - that was just a wild guess).

Just wanted to say well done to Alan for setting this up.

This is really highlighting how many exceptional performances there are, especially for the older and/or lighter gentlemen, who (IMHO) don't get the credit they deserve when people just look at raw figures.

And a special well done to Philip Price for his place at the top of the adjusted times - great to see you putting us in our places!
