    Could probably jog for 90 mins but it'd kill me to throw in sprints etc. Actually played 5 a side in January and it was hard. Generally look after myself until the weekend comes and then things just fall apart

    I run between 40 to 50 km per week so class myself as fairly fit.

    At my sons football teams training session last week the parents were asked to join in.

    I was wrecked after 15 mins...

    Fit. Just came back from travelling and stuffing my face with giant cheap meals and filling my gut with beer and I still managed to lose 6lb due to all the walking and hiking I did. Back now and starting the gym again so things can only get better. I'd be in goal, too, but that's only because it's my position. :lol:

    Last time I played 5 a side;

    Pulled left side of my groin while 'warming up', pulled right side of my groin just as the game started, went in goal, saved a shot and cracked a bone in my wrist.

    I'll let others decide..

    unfit. play 5 a side twice a week but in goal so can get away with it :lol:

    i'd be absolutely fucked if i tried playing out for anymore than about 5 minutes
  11. Unfit if comparing with football fit, fairly fit for my age, just speed walked 5k with my security detail, and they were all flagging behind me.

    Unfit and utterly talentless, although I can pass a football which makes me a decent 5-A-Side player. I play to my (only) strength. Surprising how many goals an otherwise shit player can set up.

    Unfit to the point where I have had to decide to take stock and try and put right. Started diet and exercise regime recently. How long it lasts is another thing.

    It is amazing what a change of pace or even terrain can do. If you are not used to sprinting football is a killer.

    I had the opposite a couple of years ago when I started training for the Great North Run. I started with 3 mile runs. At the time, I would have the occasional cycle to work, a trip to the gym once a week, 3 games of 5-a-side and every 3-4 weeks would have a 11-a-side game where I would generally play the full 90. Especially in the 5-a-side I would always try to do a lot of running. So doing a 3 mile run at around 8 mins per mile should be no problem right? Wrong!

    Being used to sprinting, I used the RunKeeper app to warn me about my pace being too fast, but by the 3rd mile I really struggled at first. The difference was hitting the fairly gentle hills coming home. I had not run on anything other than perfectly level ground for years and not continually at one pace for a long time. I just didn't have the muscles developed for getting up hills. It was quite a surprise and took a couple of months before I felt comfortable with a 3 mile at a decent pace. Once I cracked that barrier, I was able to extend to 4,5 then 6.5 and 8 without much trouble at all.

    I can play 5 a side without collapsing but it's hardly sprinting for an hour.
    I find you can walk or jog into the correct positions due to experience, as opposed to the young kids who tear around for the whole game.

    I can run/walk/run about 2 miles.

    Cycle about 20 comfortably but it's the C2C in June so will be ramping that up to 50.
