Have you ever run a mile on a track for PE class or for sports? What's your best time? If you haven't run a timed mile before what do you think you could run it in?

On a track basically sprinting, think I was just over 5 mins last year. Don't think I'm back to that now have t rimed myself in a while. But I also typically run every day.

And off a track, like running for just enjoyment in the street, or doing CC will give you different times to.

Why?
What's your best time?

Hmm, in Aus, we do things using the metric so I've gotten around 4 min to 4:30 for 1km, if I recall correctly, but haven't ran in quite a bit.

I really hate running, but I think I can do a 6 minute mile

if I was going as fast as I could go/decently fast pace, I think I could do 5-6 minute mile, probably closer to 6. I run longer distances when I run these days and while I still go for my best time, when your running more than 10 miles, it is about endurance as well

If I'm going out to see how fast I can run a mile, I can do 5:00 and change.

It depends on what's chasing me. :lol:

like Seth said, I'm more of a distance runner. But I could probably pull it off in 6 minutes or so if I wanted to.

it has been a while. if I was going as fast as I could go/decently fast pace, I think I could do 5-6 minute mile, probably closer to 6. I run longer distances when I run these days and while I still go for my best time, when your running more than 10 miles, it is about endurance as well

How far have you gone? I would like to do a marathon someday.

It depends on what's chasing me. :lol:
Sorry, couldn't resist. :whoops:

Haha. Nice try. I read you ran xc. I bet you're smoking fast whether you're being chased or not lol

like Seth said, I'm more of a distance runner. But I could probably pull it off in 6 minutes or so if I wanted to.

Dayum. Tou're fast.

I really hate running, but I think I can do a 6 minute mile

That's fast for someone who hates it.


I'm not sure, but I can run 100 m in 6.78 seconds.

Seeing that the world record is over 9 seconds I somehow doubt that lol

On a track basically sprinting, think I was just over 5 mins last year. Don't think I'm back to that now have t rimed myself in a while. But I also typically run every day.

That's a good time. I run in high school and am pretty serious about it. My best time is 4:24. I just wondered what times people ran here. I'm always curious about what athletes of other sports can do too. Some people say LeBron James could break a 5 minute mile easily because he is in such good shape while others say he couldn't since distance running is a "different' sort of shape than sprinting on a court. Personally I don't see him breaking 5 myself. Close but not quite.

I play travel baseball and our coaches have bench marks for us for this type of stuff. At the start of the season they expected an 8 minute mile and the goal is to have it under 5 for all of us prior to the start of summer ball. My best time is 4.50 in a full on sprint and I felt like I was gonna die after.

That's really good tho! Do you do a fall sport? If not you should do cross country.

Like 4-5 minutes, probably towards 5, I try to run everyday the weather is good in the summer.

Not really sure how much a mile is compared to kilometer, but yeah, should be around there

5:34 is my personal best

I've run for about 6 months so my fastest speed only 6 mins per kilometer xD :what::what::what::what:

So 1 mile = 1.6km. I was able to run the whole thing in 6:40 minutes last year (grade 9). I remember finishing it in almost 9 minutes back in grade 7

Honestly i prefer sprints

Ya I saw you were from Australia. I mean with a time like that it would be like top 10 in pretty much any country. Sorry about the injuries! How is it going with the nursing?

I dont think I can run a mile....!!!
I was never athletic, totally un-muscular and used to be just skin and bones....even then I was huffing and puffing at 200 meters...!!!

Now I've put on some weight and kinda getting chubby....So my performance must be worse.

That's super fast for not being a runner! Get down to like 5:00-5:05 and you would qualify for the state championships probably!

I've never run a distance of an mile, but on a two kilometer training distance, which is just a little over a mile, my best time was 6:70 mins.

6:70 is a typo right? Even out of US I don't think it's possible to run 6:70

lliam
January 27th, 2018, 06:26 PM
hmm, unless I've misinterpreted your question for this thread, so not to me. 6 mins 70 sec ... I was told, 6:30mins goes (i guess it's US Standard) for 17-21yos if they are in the 1 percent group of this age group. That year I was 16 and attended a intense training program for runners, which lastet more than half a year. Even though I run a few miles every day highly I doubt I could do that again without attending such a training program. Also, it was the only time I reached that time. But top athletes run that distance in less then five mins and usually 8-9mins goes for those who are in good or very good shape ... at a 1 mile distance.

Your time in the 6-7 minute range sounds good. Its just that 6:70 is not a time. One second after 6:59 it becomes 7:00. Does that make sense? So 70 seconds is really 1 minute and 10 seconds. The order would be 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 1:00, 1:01, 1:02, 1:03, 1:04, 1:05, 1:06, 1:07, 1:08, 1:09, 1:10 ...

I do run regularly actually usually about 3 miles a few days a week, just not part of a track or XC team. I tried a track team once and i didnt really enjoy it. Now I just run on my own and have done a few 5K's.

Hahahaha. I was nearly going to say something about him. The world record has gotten much much faster than Bannister's first sub 4! But good for him on being the first!!! And YOU can run! Everyone can. You might not be able to break four minutes lol. But you can run at your own pace! Running is fun!
