That's the speed I usually do my shortest running path of 4Km that make it at an average speed between 10 and 11 km/h.
So if I was set to run only 1.6km I could probably do it at 14km/h and stop
But honestly I usually care much more about pace changes and actual overall running time than the speed itself.
I know that if I'm in a better shape I'll go naturally faster without actually thinking about it.
I usually run at the end of the day, always outside. So before starting I check myself. If I'm too tired or haven't eaten properly during the day I just skip it, otherwise I set a time or distance goal and run for it
Just a word of advise based on my personal experience:
0. Regularly check yourself up. It's pretty dangerous to start or restart doing sports without at least a general check up.
1. If you're running to burn, 9 minutes won't do you almost anything. Your body won't have time to start burning the "extra" stuff.
2. If you can't run more time, walk. But walk fast (usually 6 or 7km/h) and resume running when you feel like it. Repeat this as many times as you want. Like this you'll be able to "run" at least 30 min without any big issues and if you keep doing it you'll start running more and walking less. I find 1h of activity to be the minimum for me.
3. Have at least 2 types of running. Don't run every day at the same speed in the same "track". Set time intervals where you'll run faster. A good practice I used at the beginning was 1.5 minutes normal and 30 seconds faster. The more you get in shape the bigger will be the gap between slow and fast paces. This depends heavily on your body, make sure your heart beats are back to "normal" before starting the next sprint.
4. Sleep and rest. This is as important as training. Do not do it every day. Listen to your body.
5. Do multiple sports. I'm an heavy guy, even when I'm in shape and if I run everyday my kneed and hips start complaining. Alternating running with biking and swimming does the trick
The quickest time I have for a mile is 5 min 30 secs. It's all about building up your stamina because I remember the first time that I tried to go for a mile, my legs just went after about a quarter mile
Apple has announced that the upcoming new iOS will give users the option to change Siri to a male-sounding voice.
Every time you ask him a question, he says "Let me ask my wife" and then it's right back to the female voice.
Just stumbled into a little "Export" link on the top right of an MSDN page. Multiple pages can be collected together, and a custom MSDN can be exported into PDF or HTML.
Anyone using it? I think it can be useful on my tablet.
I don't care anymore.
