i think those landmarks may seem more achievable than they are to someone who is intermediately proficient at either

e.g. a person who can pull 350 may think 500 is much closer than it actually is

same thing with someone who runs a 25 5K

20 is cooking

It is a good idea to post times to back up some of these claims. I don't think everyone is full of shit but it doesn't take much these days to do a vid of a lift and post a link to a run on strava. ;)

Leigh -  I did a 500 DL but was at 165 which was far too heavy to run any sort of pace. Phone Post

500 @ 165 is really impressive

The person who can do that is an elite fitness professional IMO. Stregnth, speed AND endurance.

I'm about 50 lbs too weak and about 13 minutes too slow.

I wonder who on the UFC roster might be able to pull this off.

Middleweight and above would be too heavy probably (assuming walk around weight of 200lb ) so I suppose the best candidate would be a WW or very strong LW.

Maybe GSP? Phone Post

i cant do either. ill never deadlift 500 but i could almost certainly hit 20mins if i trained for it. problem is i dont give enough of a shit about running to do it more than 3 or 4 times a month, so i doubt ill ever do much better than the 22-23min pace that i currently run. i consider a 7:something pace pretty damn fast outside of the competitive runners world...getting below 6:30/mile is really, really fast.
