    I basically want a population sample of this area, eventually calculating the average. Then I am going to calculate an average for a different population sample (specifically targeted at healthy people).

    After this, I want to compare that average to my time. I want to see where I stand. So want to know how much more work I need to do before I can call myself "good".

    I also want to know the general fitness of the people on these forums.

    Thanks.

    As for myself, it takes me roughly 7 minutes (got a loooooong way to go).

    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?

    Once in a while, I run at night.

    Nah; when I have to run for a reason, I never want to.

    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.

    I've not timed myself in years, I used to be able to run fairly quickly, but now I think it takes me 9-10 minutes to run a mile :facepalm

    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...
