I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could answer your Nutrisystem question..
Wow, that's great time, did you place for your age (old man)?..
Thanks, Bob, I finished 7th out of the 39 guys aged 45-49. My time would've been third among the 38 guys aged 40-44, so I guess we're getting better with age.....
Unbelebable!! I'd be happy with 30 min! 22 is outta sight, man..
Thanks guys! Gordon when's your next run? With the weight you've lost since your last run, plus all the exercise you've gotten, I'm guessing you'd break through the 30min barrier!..
May 8. I've been hitting 30 min in training runs lately. Barely. Crossfit has helped in that I'm no longer getting an injury every time I try to push it. This element of recovering fitness is tougher than any other for me. I guess age related.
I'm running with Kris "Horselady" from the Maintenance forum and she's a sub-25 min 5K'er..
Once again, GREAT JOB, Rads!!.
Updating you guys on my latest result, I did a half marathon last Sunday. Ran a 2:02, I was really bummed I didn't break 2 hours, in fact still am.
The biggest bummer is that I feel I left a nearly 10 minutes on the road due to severe knee pains in the final 2 miles. Problems started at about mile 9, and then got really bad at mile 11. I was running steady 8:40s up to mile 11 which would have put me in at 1:53 or 1:54, oh well, maybe next time....
I'm still loving my new life, THANK YOU NS!!!!!!!!..
Amazing stuff! Nicely done all around..
I just started walking 4 months back and my two miles up and down hills takes me almost 25 minutes....guess I'll hold off on the 5k races for awhile yet.
Congrats on your amazing progress!.
Hey J - Don't be dicouraged by Radsdad here. He's a freak of nature! I've been trying to run for over a year now and I don't think I can even do ONE 8:40 mile, much less string.
Of them together!!.
My PR for a 5K is just under 30 min, which is basically 3 miles at just under a 10 min pace. Now THERE's a target you can shoot at! I've got a bullseye on my back. Go for it!.
You rock, Rads!!.
Awesome to see,even if you didn't break 2 hours. I bet an ton of people couldn't even match your time. Major congrats!..
Thanks guys! Considering I weighed 240 and couldn't run a single mile last summer, I should be more than satisfied. My successful weight loss via Nutrisystem has gotten my competitive juices flowing again. I didn't start running until I'd lost most of my weight and was nearing goal weight. We're all athletes under the extra lbs, you've just got to lose them and go for it...
