I havent put this in the fitness section as its more of an 'experiment'. Im doing some personal 'research' on raw fooders. What is your most recent 10k time. All out effort. Wheelchair or running. To make it more objective, please use a measured 10k course and ideally a loop course. This is going to answer a lot of peoples questions why they struggle with not getting the body they want.
Please provide date and time. With minutes AND seconds as your watch says. Thanks.
My most recent 10k time was 36:07 in March 29th, 2011.
Most recent is 31:18 in April 2010, this was just before getting a serious injury which had me out for months during which I discovered 80/10/10. January this year I was in shape to run a pb, probably under 31 mins based on my tempo training pace, but since then my performance declined for a number of reasons and I never raced a 10k this spring. The main problem was a b12 deficiency which i'm now taking care of, fingers crossed.
This probably isn't what you wanted since my diet certainly wasn't raw and not quite vegan at the time but it was getting there. Mainly oats, rice, potatoes, beans and veg with small amounts of meat (and fruit of course). Hopefully very soon i'll prove that I can run quicker on this diet.
holy crab man that´s fast
2 years ago, just before I went raw I ran a 34:34. Then exactly a year later, having been 100% lfrv for almost a year, I ran the same 10k event in 34:12, but I did have an upset stomach for the whole day, as the race was in the evening, and I ate a bunch of dried prunes in the morning... had no other fruit for some reason. My coach expected me to dip under 3:20m/km pace that race.
Then my performance declined really badly, after I ran Canadian O Champs, and I was slowly climbing back up after getting my blood test done. I had some problems with my liver, that weren't treated when I was born, and i didn't want to run into problems later on, like I had always (out sick/injured for at least 3-4 weeks EVERY single year before lfrv), so I did a fast in Jan-feb in Kenya, and now it's been 2.5 months, and I'm coming back. I see no reason to eventually get close to 30 minutes, even though my main focus isn't on pure running.
So there you go, I was 100% lfrv for a year when I ran 34:12. This was last year, and I've been 100% lfrv since then, so I'm sure my times are just going to improve :)
good job man
I've only recently started running (about 3 months) and have NEVER ran much before in my life, only the forced stuff in elementary and junior high school.
I haven't done a 10k before, but I recently have completed my 1st 5 k at 26.14 on hilly, marked terrain. I am vegan for 8 years, high carb vegan/high fruit (60-75% of daily intake) for over a year.
My goal is 10k by July 1st. Will post times again then.
My most recent 10k was a while ago in cross country team:
October 12th 2010 - 37:12:04 (on my second place ribbon)
First 10km was well over 55mins years ago with borderline CFS.
First certified measured 10km was about 2 years ago - 55.50
About a year ago (totally flat course) - 51.30
About a month ago (not a flat course) - 46.45
Looking to go under 45 one of these days :)
For those who are in the 30's WOW that is awesome! Thanks for the inspiration.
