    Struggle with your PFT?

    35 Year Old Hailie Gebreselassie has just broken the World Record for a Marathon.

    At a glance, that appears to be a 7m 30s PFT on average, for 26 miles.

    Amazing. And he'd get 11 minutes in the Army!

    Food for thought!

  2. You'd learn to run fast with a pride of Lions chasing you :D Mind, good luck to the bloke, he's an exceptional athlete, even at an age when most runners are thinking of giving up.
  3. That's what a lifetime's dedication to the event on top of a whopping portion of natural talent will do for you.

    Personally, I souldn't keep that pace up over the 1.5 mile let alone 26-odd. But I'm an idle desk-jockey, not a lean, gazelle-like mile-muncher.
  4. All well and good, but when is the last time he went out, drank 6 litres of Krombacher, 10 scotches, smoked 20 B & H, had a big kebab, went to bed at 3, got up at 6 and then passed his PFT?

    Doing it the easy way makes you soft.
