I made a mistake on my post on July 24, 2017. My 1st Incline I did in August of 2015 with a time of 40:48 NOT 49 minutes at the age of 66!! I was in much better shape for sure then!! Today at 68 I did it in 58 minutes...9 minutes faster than on the 20th!!! This will probably be my last time since we are leaving on Friday. What a greatchallenge this Incline is :-)
Last year we were here visiting..I was 67..the altitude was hard…I did it in 49 minutes…Today ( July 20, 2017)back here visiting again and I was 5 weeks out of toe surgery..got out of my “boot” a week and a half ago and tried it…tough…I was disappointed that it took me 67 minutes!! No endurance training for some time …At 68 though I am happy I can do this
44:51 August 2012 - will try for a sub 40 in 2014.
48 years old. 25:50 from the first tie. 8/27/2012
First time under 26:00 Woohoo!
Way to go, Joe! Inspirational story.
Well I did the incline for the first time last week just 7 weeks after my open heart surgery aortic valve replacement and finished about 55 min. Used to do it in under 35 min but I will get back there in time.
New PR 28:32. My Oklahoma friend got here this morning and has only done the Incline about 5 times- all last summer. He did a 26:14!! Smokin.
what are the female 65+ running? Incline only.
