I ran in the St.Petersburg Times Turkey Trot 5k in Florida in a time of 23:16. I believe I placed around 200-300th out of 7,457 runners.
4 months earlier I ran my 1st 5k in 28:12 now my time is down by 4min and 56sec! I guess it's fair to say I'm improving now.
Yup…..and most good decathlete's won't every be very good at the 5k as the training required is completely contradictory to 9/10ths of decathlon training.
Just out of curiosity how well do you think an elite decathlete could run a 5km race in? I would guess in 17-18min.
