How Fast Should I Be Able To Run?

Wed Aug 06, 2003 2:45 pm

I had football speed and agility testing today, and frankly, I did horribly. In the 40 yard dash, I got 7.5 seconds. How fast should I be able to run this? I am 195 lbs and 6'2". I'm just trying to get an idea of what my goal should be.

40 yards is 120 feet, for a pretty big guy, I think you're fine off with 7.5 seconds.

Your goal should be what you were designed to be. Nothing more, nothing less. Perhaps you are not a sprinter but could run the additional 60 yards in another 6 seconds? Perhaps even, you'll invent a cure for a form of cancer 20 years from now.

You have an, as yet, undiscovered talent. Keep your mind open and it will be manifested.

PS: When I was a mere child of 16, I could do 40 in about 8 seconds, 100 in 14 but a mile in 5:14. Today I do the 40 yard dash just slightly faster than a toad looking for bugs.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
