5:35 Mile w/ Rucksack


#1

Reading through the "intresting facts" thread got me looking at the Guinness book of world records. Craziest T record so far: Guy running a 5:35 mile with a 40lb rucksack


#2

google paddy doyle. the mans a nutter. I think thats his record.


#3

That's an achievement. Apparently riding a bike with a heavy rucksack on is a good 'character'building exercise too.


#4

Did it give any details as to what unit he was with? That's a barn burning speed with a light ruck.


#5

yep. its paddy. Ex para and a few other regiments.

his page of records.


#6

This guy's a joke. Our very own Xen Nova doubles his world record for burpees in 15 minutes.

Lying on the internet is pathetic.


#7

I'm pretty sure that if you took any top runner from 800-5000 they would go sub-5. The WR for 5k is averages to like 4:04's for 3.1m.


#8

prove he'a a joke, prove he's lying and prove Xen Nova doubles his world record as the exercise was performed.
sweeping statements are only useful for comedy effect.


#9

This I would also like to see.

Not to take away anything from Xen Nova, but 470 burpees in 15 minutes .. I haven't ever seen anyone do even close to that.

Sarcasm doesn't work on the internet.

Paddy Doyle is no joke, and isn't the liar in question.

I called the user in question out about a list of bogus feats, and your link to Doyle's achievements solidified my belief.


#11

Sacrasm works brilliantly.
Who is the user in question?

I quoted this post of Xen Nova's in another post:
"I'm 19, 175-180lbs (might be less, quite a bit of stress recently, horrible sleep and eating habits).

-Bench: 315# for a shitty 1rm
-Bench Reps: 185# 27 reps (still had a few in the tank...I think I can get 35-40 I'll try again next week)
-Squat: 545#
-Deadlift: 495# (think I can pull more if I pull sumo)
-W. Chin Up: BW + attached 170#
-Pullups: 33 in a row (left maybe 2 in the tank)...No Kip.
-Power Snatch + OHS: 185#
-Power Clean: 255#
-Burpees in 15min: 832
In high school ran a 4.6, and I never weight trained, of course I weighed something around 130 with a backpack on."

I noted that his burpee claim for 15 minutes was bullshit, and your post of Doyle's records shows that the liar claims to have double the world record.
What else is a lie?

Rather sad and pathetic.

No youve quoted that info your comments make sense. Prior to that they were a little cloudy.
The claims above are indeed total bullshit.


#14

Bump.
