My new PR as of tonight is 7:06. It's nothing to brag about, but I'm pretty happy considering when I started running about a month ago I was getting like 10:30..hahaha. I'm proud of myself for dropping that much time off in just a month...Now I'm shooting for under 7:00.

edit: (to skaterdude)

Yeah there's a kid at my school who runs like 4:15 because for some reason his body doesn't produce a lot of lactic acid so he can push it farther than anyone else without getting tired. He has to be careful though because apparently he can run himself to death if he doesn't pay attention.

I ran it the other day for fun, but my iPod buds kept falling out and my shoes didn't fit right so it didn't really work, but I got like 6:30 or something. I'm doing cross country this year so I think I'll get a lot better.

I don't know if my school allows it during practice, but every schools rules are different. and i wouldn't think so during meets, because well where are you gonna put it

i have some adidas hawks left over from last track season that i'm gonna use and they are pretty nice.

No, because I have to use the stopwatch feature on my Ipod to get my time. If I have music playing it could effect the results because I have to like exit out of the "Now Playing" thing and whatnot.

Nike's Steve Prefontaine running shoes are the lightest, most comfortable sons of bitches in the world.

Rofl I got 9min flat for my Freshman year.

Is there anything to do in a house or garage to improve running time? I don't want to run around my block because people look at me weird.

Also, do name brand running shoes really help? I just go to Sears or JcPennys and choose some cheap ass no name brand running shoes hahaha.

Wtf? Just go run, dipshit. What are they gonna do? "LOOK GUYS, THAT DUDE'S FUCKING RUNNING DOWN THE BLOCK! WHAT THE FUCK! POINT AND LAUGH!"

Yes. When you're looking for a good running shoe you need three things:

1) Lightness
2) Comfort
3) Flexibility

When I say light, I mean REALLY light. Don't you dare run in Nike Shox...they can slow you down up to a minute because they're heavy as shit.

08-07-2008, 06:23 AM
My best ever was 4.49, but that was when I was much better shape. I'd probably go somewhere between 5.15 and 5.30 now. I stopped running to stay fit lately, I just play sports still.

DUnno ive never timed myself, but I can normally do a mile in roughly one song, and looking at the songs i listen to when I run, thats somewhere between 5mins and 7mins :S But I usewd to run 25miles a week (isnt loads though :S).

Finally got some decent running shoes now, used to run in some really shit shoes and they've started giving me injuries lol. If I timed it I expect it would be alright, maybe il try tomorrow lol

Anyone saying below six minutes has to be a decent/frequent runner. But there are kids like "uhh, 5:35, but I don't run a lot ect..." But 7-8ish is what anyone in decent fitness should be able to do. At soccer trials last year, the first thing we did was run a mile, anyone over 7 got cut automatically.

Oh shoot, puking feels awesome while running. One time, I was about to freaking pass out at football conditioning, and then I went over to the drain and threw up my breakfast. Then, went right back out and found I could run really well.

On the other hand, one time after track I walked over to the drain and puked, and I had a huge headache. And, I was all clammy and cold and stuff, and could barely open my eyes. I was miserable. Wasn't sick, though, just pushed it too hard.
