if i feel like going at an adequate speed, i could prolly do 7-9 but i'm more likely to do 9-12

When I get serious on running I can do a mile in under 7 min, but when I just jog it takes me about 8 to 9 min.

It doesn't matter about that. It is a general health question about running.

If you don't run that is fine, but you need to answer the question.

You really want to be mod, don't you?

It would probably take me a long time to run a mile, not like 15 minutes or anything, but probably somewhere between 8-10 minutes.

Cirus are you trolling me? :hmm because that would be super. :P

Well that is good you can do a mile run. Not many people can actually run a mile before stopping. The time that you are quoting is fairly average.

No I am not trolling you. Though if I was then I would make it a little more obvious.

When I was in high school I did like 12 minutes on a 3,2 km(2 miles) run...And I know that during the second part of this 3 km run, I pretty much stopped 2 or 3 times.....
So for a 1 mile run, I think I did around around 5-6 minutes

For that time frame I presume you practice on your running. About how many times a week to you run? If you don't mind my asking. Also how long of a distance do you run?

I love running on my own time; running on a track makes it more difficult to keep a pace because I lose focus and am extremely bored. I have to be watching things go by, and have music.

In the summer, every day, anywhere from two to four miles, depending on if I lose track of time or not. In late fall, any day when it isn't too cold, because I have trouble running in it; my ears, eyes, and jaw hurt when I run in cold air [though I have no idea why]. In the winter I slack off because I can't go outside, and I have to drag myself to a gym. I begin in the spring near the end of the allergy bloom and work through the year.

When I was younger, I loathed it; when we had fitness testing in PE, I was stubborn and refused to bust my backside over it, and would have about eleven or twelve minutes. Doing it on my own was always easier.

Well I run about 2 miles 3 days a week, but since summer is comming up I think I am going to expand it to 4 or 5 days a week.

The time of day you like to run is cool, though myself I like to run in the afternoon when I am fully awake.

Still though wow on your part. Keep it up.

Have you ever ran in any marathons?

I don't run at night. I run in the afternoon. Like around 5 or 6 pm. I find that it is some that helps keep the energy up and is relaxing in my opinion.

Ok. It is good to run for yourself. Which is a good reason in my book. I hope that the running keeps going well for you.

So for a 1 mile run, I think I did around around 5-6 minutes
I used to run 3,2km too and I think I had the school record at 10:23 min or 11:23, fairly sure it was 10:23 though because 11:23 isn't THAT impressive to be a school record.

I think I could do 1 mile in 4:30.

Edit2: Just checked some sites and getting around ~4 min on a mile seems to be extremely good for someone who isn't a professional runner so I have no idea if I could reach 4:30 but if I could do 10:23 on 2 miles then it seems like I SHOULD be able to do 4:30 on 1 mile...Hm



EDIT: Back then I had a ridiculous schedule:
Basketball 2-3 days / week.
Football 3-4 days / week
Gym 1-2 days / week
Running 5km: 2-3 days / week.

It's not surprising that I got my stress allergy now that I think about it...

Oh, good old cooper-test days. I had miscalculated something while voting, but actually it would be more like 9-12, or with some effort 7-9.

Generally I am a persons who goes to run on a indoor track. So for me I don't have to worry about such things. Though I can understand why you think that way. I wouldn't want to get hit by a car myself.

I like running on a track because it helps me pace myself so I get get into a good rythem. Otherwise I burn myself out within a short time.

04-09-2009, 01:55 PM
I run daily, but I rarely bother clocking my speed. The last time I checked was this past winter when I participated in a marathon, where my best mile time was 6:18. Although, since I was pacing for distance and not running as a competitor but as a fundraiser, I'm not sure if I would say that's my actual best time.

Generally speaking, however, the 5-7 minutes range.

Pilaf
04-09-2009, 02:32 PM
I should also mention I've worked third shift for over two years now, and second shift for a year before that. I am never, ever asleep during the time of night my body supposedly properly regenerates itself the most effictively, and I don't get enough Vitamin D from the sun or my diet either without supplements, so this has contributed to my worse than usual cardio fitness. When I DO jog, I usually don't run flat out, and I do it at night on my nights off work, and I usually jog at a moderate pace for two or three miles rather than going for speed.

Zinnia

When I was fitter, I could probably do it in around 7 minutes, I never really timed myself though but I did a 4 mile run in 30 minutes...

Thats cool. Many people go through the same thing that you are going through for the lack of vitamins that you have. For the sun though you only need about 15 to 30 min of sunlight getting to you for your body to make the proper amount of vitamin D (if I remember correctly).

How many days a week do you do the jogging and what type of place to you go to jog at?

My best was like 4:46 which is fairly decent especially since I'm not a runner. I'm really not big into the runs your legs off as fast as you can. I like running a mile in the 8-10 minute range, that isn't stressing, and I can keep running. Slow and steady, better cardio, alright.

Quagles
04-10-2009, 07:46 PM
I do 3km's in about 16mins (that was last year), then again before this I haven't actually jogged any at beforehand and had some pretty bad allergies yet managed not a all that shabby time. Should be having another test in a short while so I think I might actually try to work myself up to this time and aim for 14-15, shouldn't be that hard. So I guess in 1 mile, 7-8mins should be doable.

If you use military standards, a two mile run between 12-14mins is great. If , so aim for around 6:30. If you can hit it in the 4's then you are a freak that needs to go try out for the Olympics.

The question was more along the lines of how fast you can run a mile in. So how fast can you run a mile in?

Yeah I agree. I run on a treadmill sometimes as well and my run time improves by almost a minute or slightly more. I think that may have to deal with the running surface moving and it causeing less work for the human body.

tom
04-13-2009, 01:41 AM
yep, it's good to train on a treadmill for just that reason though. It reduces unnecessary stress on your joints and is good for maintaining cadence and technique.

omg laser pew pew!
04-13-2009, 07:59 AM
I respect anyone that can do it under 8 minutes. While it might not be incredibly fast, it is still a good solid speed that would require a decent amount of effort, at the very least you would be 'faster' than the average person

Can't remember when I last tried to measure my own run speed

I did try to see how many steps I could do 100 meter at was about 65 steps when in full speed

Walking fast It was 98 if I recall right so a little over a meter a step

My aunt had much higher numbers, but for her age and height It was higher than the average but lower than mine

Of cause It's a bit difficult to compare the average 40-50 year old with a taller 20 year old


My Guess for my walking speed it's 5 km/h when I walk slow and about 8 when I walk fast

Though when I do the later It only takes about 30 sec for me to start feeling the muscles in the legs complaining , the former I can read the newspaper, cross roads and walk for hours before that with that speed


My Guess Is If running slowly at the same speed as my max walk speed then about 12 min


Last time I was running I don't know how long but I made a mistake for one in as bad fitness as myself and run as fast as I could till the top of the "hill" only to learn my brother wanted a longer run than 8 min :P so for the remaining 7 min I could barely run due to low on air ^^'

Had I not done the burst I think I might have been able to run through it with far less trouble

It depends, if I run a mile and only a mile I could probably do it in roughly 5 - 7 mins. but When I go running I normally do about 6 miles and it spreads out at roughly 10-11 mins a mile.

I've not been running in over a fortnight though, I'll pay for that :apathy

I can't remember the time.
Last time I was aware that I was running a mile. It was a race, back when I was around 14.
It was terrible. I stupidly sprinted at the beginning and got out of breath.
Then I claimed to never do it again. Fuck that, I'm a sprinter. I can't do long distance.
I can sprint 400m and that's my absolute limit.
100m and 200m are my favourite.

Hmm, not sure. I'd say somewhere between 13-14 min, but I haven't tried to run as much as I can of a mile yet. My best record was like 12 1/2 min, but that was back in high school. I've done 1.1 in 16 min, but I do that on a treadmill with an incline for most of the time. Maybe tomorrow I'll try to actually run a mile as much as I can and tell ya then. Although I just recently started going back to the gym. orz

back in 8th grade i ran a flat 6 minute mile. If i did it today there's no way i could break 9 minutes. I have absolutely no cardio
