The Logic of Long Distance
shipo, great progress!
weight vs mileage vs proper training plan? Obviously all play a part in improving training & race times my vote goes to mileage & building larger aerobic base. then proper training plan, & then weight loss. other important factors would include experience (how long, what kind), age & diet etc etc weight loss comes by increasing excercise & "tweeking" diet. it all factors in. don't think you can isolate just one factor & use it explain the improvement in race times.
you obviously are doing the right things. keep it going!
Friday's race was good from a time perspective, errr, until I noticed the age and time of the guy who got second place overall. The dude was 48 years old and turned in a 16:45 5K; I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy...
Fat old man PRs:
theres a few around here in their 50's & couple in 60's running those times or very close to it. very impressive ! wow!
Yeah, seriously, WOW!

There's a very popular women's 4-miler in town. The winner of the last few years went to the Olympic trials this Summer. But the second place woman was 35, clocking the race at 5:35min pace. o_O
