Your Mile Time?

Wed May 02, 2007 4:24 am

How fast can you run a mile? Today I did 7:25, but am trying to get that down. How about you?

In the last physical education course I had to take, which was 3 years ago (my school district only required 2 years of PE in high school), I got my time down to 6:45 or so. I've slowed down since then from lack of practice.

In high school, I think I casually strolled a mile in about 45 minutes once.

I usually just hire a driver.

But one time during a hella sale, I did that son of a bitch in 1 minute. Set a new world record.

Naturally I'm actually more of a sprinter/jumper type (fast-twitch dominant) which makes me a nightmare to play against in a basketball game, or in a race. But I used to jog around 5 miles every day in my teens and completed them in somewhat under a half hour (Probably around 10 to 10.5 mph I'd speculate)

I was sub-six minutes in high school. Somewhere in the 5:40 to 5:50 range. I also ran the 40yd dash in less than 5 seconds.

Once upon a time I had a runner's physique - 6'2" and 160lbs (6-8% body fat). My metabolism has caught up with me significantly in the past 12 years.

I haven't tried to run a mile at my fastest pace in a long while. But, I can tell you I average about 2.25 miles in a 25 minute treadmill run at the gym.

Is 1500 Metres 1 mile? Because thats what we do at school and I got it in about 5 mins, i think it was 5:22. Im quite fast I regularly sprint 400metres (twice a week at school) and im the third fastest long distance in my school and im the fastest mid range sprinter in my PE group. Pe group is about 40 peoples, year is 300 people.

Well, my best mile time was 6:04, but that was in 6th grade.

Haven't timed myself on 1 mile since then.

These days, I'm slowly building up my running again (I absolutely can't stand running, but I seem to recall something about cholesterol from my last physical). I'm up to 2-2.5 miles per run, and I probably do it in 15-20 minutes. I'll try and time myself when I go running in a few minutes.

Back in high school, the mile was the race I usually ran in track. My best mile time then 4:48.

In cross-country, my 5k time was about 17:30. Now, I have trouble breaking 20 min. in a 5k. I came close a couple of years ago at 20:04 in a race. Due to the black ice that hit the northeast during Feb.-March plus the fact that I've been working extra hours; I haven't run as much as before. Last week, I ran a 5k around 23 minutes; I need to do some running to get that time down again.

I usually run the mile in 5:15 when in shape, but I don't like to push my body too much. I do like running 5K and half-marathons sometimes, but I find the mile to be boring.

Somewhere in the 5s is good enough for fitness for my body, but

Quoting Evan767 (Thread starter):

7:25 is not bad at all. That's a nice pace.

I don't know what my personal record for the mile is, but I can bet that it's something under 5. Under 5 is generally unpleasant, however.

Well, we run 1.5 miles for our Air Force Physical Fitness test. Last time we took the test, I ran the 1.5 mile in 10:09, which translate to 6:44 or so for the mile if my math is right. I could prolly run a straight mile faster than that.

Ran a mile in 7:10 seconds today..... down from 9:30 when I first started running / doing some cardio exercises. I never thought I'd be able to do that... lol...it seems that 7:10 is slow when comparing to others...but its a big deal for me. I am tall and skinny.... have very little endurance. Can run short distances VERY fast though.....

Excellent times. 4:05 mile, that's smokin'. I ran track in HS, back in the day when they only measured in Yards. I was a quarter miler, 49.9 best time, it was actually very good back in the day. I went out for track for one week in college and found out it tired me out too much and that I would fail in my studies, plus I realized there was no money in it. I quit after one week. Also quit X-country in HS, those guys were crazy. Up until about 6 months ago I would run a lazy 3 miles in 30 minutes, not so bad for an old guy. But my knee gave out, now I'm trying to figure out how to get aerobic exercise without ruining the knee. Nothing works as good as running, so now I've gained some weight.

I was too thin. My ribs were sticking out. I ate until I was full at every meal, but couldn't put on weight. I drank protein shakes and lifted weights four times a week. My doctors were concerned and wanted to put me on steroids. My body fat percentage dropped to a dangerous level at one point.

That was 1994. Fast forward to 2007 and here I sit at the same height, carrying roughly another 60lbs. on the same frame.

As for me, I ran a marathon once, well attempted, but dropped out at 19 miles due to lack of training. A little over 20 miles per week and lots of speed work ain't gonna cut it.

Would love to run a marathon. Maybe in a year or so. That's what I've said for years, particularly the last three.

I've just picked up running again this past week. I can get under 9 minutes no problem. I can get under 8 minutes with good effort. I can get under 7 minutes pushing really hard. My goals include getting under a 6 minute mile and running a marathon. It feels really good to get out there and run.
