  3. My best time was 3.5km (about 2 miles I'd say) in like 11 minutes. I jog a bit, but I don't run :)

    Awesome, that's a pretty darn good time.

    I think my best was 6:30-40s or something around there.

    I remember back in middle school running a mile was such torture, at least they made it such a big deal, then by the time I got to high school I realised I mile is not that much, I mean sure it's a long enough distance, but it really isn't as bad as it was made out to be in MS, My first time backpacking we did a total of 30 miles, I thought that was insane, but now, 30 miles is like childs play.(well not quite, but have since done a backpacking trip at over 100 miles at +10000 ft, pretty much the whole time)

    Congrats on the mile though, pretty darn good.

    I ate a chocolate-covered chocolate donut in about five minutes today-think I qualify for some sort of scholarship? My dad is 55, and he is in such better shape than I am. He regularly goes on 60 mile bike rides, and biked over 80 miles one day last year. Congrats on your speed though; now you have to train to be a pickpocket.
     
  7. DAMMMMNNNNN!! You must have been moving like Speedy Gonzales to get a mile in less than 5 minutes. The best mile ive ever done was in like 8 minutes. If I ran any faster than that I would most likely puke.

    I ran a mile in 6:30 back in eighth grade, but haven't run a timed mile since. I seriously doubt I could break the seven minute mark if I tried to run one now.
     
  9. I remember at one point I could run a mile in about 5:40, but that was back in about 9th or 10th grade. Since I haven't had to do it in PE since then, and I'm too lazy to go running myself, I probably can't break the 7 minute mark anymore.

    I take solace in the fact that I'm a sprinter, though. :p
    Without training, I managed to run 200m in something like 25.5 seconds. I'd like to think that if my school was more serious about training the track team, I could've done much much better, and our school could've been in division B instead of C. :bawl:
    Oh well.

    I jog but I'm not into the speed thing at all. As long as I keep my heart rate up for an extended period I'm cool. Usually jog from 3 to 5 miles.

    Jeez...last time I ran the mile was my sophomore year, and I ran it in like 9:30ish. Not bad when you realize I'm a big lug.

    Not sure what I'd do now. Probably 12 minutes or some shamefully high number.... :( But, I'm working on it.
     
  12. i knew a kid who got that in 2nd grade......
