In one part of the post, Rob refers to the 40 national titles that he has won over various distances from 5km to 50km walk. He also holds all of the National Senior records: 3km (11m10s); 5km (18m51s); 10km (38m27s); 20km (79m22sec); 35km (2h31m10sec); 50km (3h45m30sec).
To put that 50k time into context......if you took the average pace then Rob went through the Marathon mark in roughly 3h 10m which works out as 7m 15s per mile pace. An incredible speed when you consider that he is race walking and not running.
