about all this
763.035mph is the current Land Speed Record. It was set by Andy Green onboard ThrustSSC on Oct 15, 1997, at Black Rock Desert, USA.
My average walking pace is 5.5kph. To date, my iPod records my fastest 1000m run at 4 mins 59 seconds. On my racing bike I once reached a maximum speed of 72kph down SH1 into Waitahanui. I think my top speed in a car is around 160kph, and maybe my top speed ever (relative) was flying at 1022kph across Afghanistan on an Air Malaysia flight to London last year.
I tend to get through my day in an average time of 24 hours, at a regular pace, and this is a record of my progress.
