How long does it take you to run one mile?


Quote  |  Reply

This is a motivation issue for me. I think if I see how long it takes other people to run a mile I will be movitated to run my best.

So how long does it take you to run 1 mile?

What about a 5k?

Thanks!

My PRs are:

1 mile:  7:19

5K:  25:16

10K  56:24

My 14 year old ran his mile test yesterday in 7:09.  I'm gonna get'em :-)

I'm way slow I guess, but I hate running...just do it because I know it's the healthy thing to do...

1 mile  = 10 minutes

You may find this interesting as a data point; the link below is the Army PT Test 2-mile run times standards.  If I remember correctly 60 points was the minimum to pass.

I haven't run a mile on it's own ever.  And I haven't done a 5 km race since last fall (27:53, I think).  But I recently did a 10k race, and did 48:53, with the second 5 km in 24:07.

I don't know about 1mi but I ran 2 miles in 19min this morning. 

My normal pace over 4-5 miles ranges from about 9:00/mile-9:30/mile depending. I've never ran a single mile to try and get a best time so I can't comment on that.

dayum OVERACHIEVERS!  Yell

56 years old.  I can run 1 mile in 6:20.  Half marathon at 7:40 per mile pace.  Marathon at 8:10 per mile pace.

i've never run one mile.

my best 5k was 27:32, my best 8k was 47:47, and my best 10k was just under 58.

I've never run a timed one mile either. My best 5k is 26:30. I've recently started doing some speed training at the local high school track.  Based on that, if I were doing a mile race, I'd aim for 8:00.

told you this would get more hits in fitness. ;)

like i said my last 5k was 26 minutes which is like 8:20-8:30 min/mi.  often times i run a bit slower sometimes i run faster.

When I started my couch to 5k I did 5k umm like in 40 haha

now about 3 months later my best time was 27:30. big improvement and i am still working on it :)

in college i was normally around the 4:50 - 5:05 range, but the guys that ran the mile for a living...WOW..they were from Sweden running 3:55 to 4:12....in practice I would try to keep up with them to better my sprinting, but they were animals...I could NEVER do that.....lol

its taken me about 30 years to run the last oneCool

 

prior to that, my PB was <6:00 .....I once did 7 miles in 43:00...

wow, good for you! :) 

Well, I had never really run very well and I just realized that this was due to asthma. After seeing my doc and getting an inhaler, I was able to run 5k!!! Surprised

I did so in 30 mins. I can run one mile in appx 10 mins. Hooray for small progress!!! Laughing

I decided with my newfound abilities I want to run more, every day if I can.

 That's interesting. The world record for the mile is 3:43, are these guys in the olympics? lol

My most recent PT mile was a 7:58.

The difference between a 3:43 and 3:55 mile is HUGE.
