21:59 for a 3. 26 mile run (according to map my run)… hilly route, mainly pavements and roads and one huge 200 M steep hill at the start, if that helps any :-?

This post could go one of two ways... lets hope it's positive and yes we will know you're lying if you say 3 miles in 12 minuets with 60 KG Bergen and boots all up hill :roll: :P

Cheers.

keep it up mate, make sure you write down the times that you do it in, that way you can see if your improving!

Make that 21:57 as of approximately 15 minuets ago :D :D ... not a huge improvement but ever last second counts. Surprised when I looked at my time at the end, felt like a tough one seen as though I’d done a hard leg circuit after my cross county race yesterday, (which I came 3rd in a field of well over 75... yes I am bragging now :P ) rather sore but i guess that pushed me even harder.

Off to the football now though for a rest and a hard earned PIE, c'mon you rip roaring potters!!! :P
