    6.5km/4 miles in 35 mins - good, bad or average ?

    I'm, guessing it's better than the average slob but pretty poor compared to someone who actually trains to run?

    also finding that running is more fun than lifting weights in some dark room with a bunch of grunting idiots (no hate/not meaning to generalise, just how my gym is)

    so anyway for others that run/jog whether it be for fun or to drop weight or anything, how do i stack up in comparison?

    Quite honestly, if you can run 4 miles w/o puking or having a heart attack you are better than most of population. Having said that I don't think that is a real fast time. I plugged it into a pace calculator online and it said 8:45 mile. I usually average 10 or 11 minute miles when I run around my neighborhood. BUT, I don't run very often AND my neighborhood is all hills. So, I honestly don't know if my times mean much to you. I swear its uphill in all directions out, and then back to my house. Lately I've been doing sprints instead of straight jogging. As for you, you're faster than me, but all you can do is track your times and keep getting better against yourself.

    it's a sad fact but you're probably right here.

    I also used to average 10 or 11 mins a mile when i used the treadmill at the gym but jogging seems to give me better times though im not sure i'm running faster - maybe just random bursts of pace as opposed to a constant medium.

    I really got lazy on cardio over the last 5 or 6 months. I just strained my right high ham / glute playing a friendly game of softball. It was pathetic. Hence me putting sprints back in, and me adding regular cardio back to my weekly routine.

    Probably about average when you only include people that can actually do it. My pace for RECOVERY runs is usually maximum 7.5 min/mile though, and I'm by no means a runner, so I'd personally be extremely disappointed in that time for anything less than about 5 miles.

    Its ok, its pretty darn slow if you are going non stop without walking however. Without much effort and not a lot of training i could do 20 mins and some change under 21 with a 5k, slightly slower on a longer run.
    Lift for a better physique (calories aside) and run for cardiovascular health.
    If you want to get faster, run slower, and dont stop, eventually you will get a faster pace.
    There is always someone less fortunate, with real hunger, with real adversity, who made something of themselves. What is your excuse?

    For your weekend huffer that's pretty good. I say if you can keep up a sub 10 minute mile for more than 3 miles you are in better shape than 90% of Americans.

    I was really big into running last year. Would run 13 miles just for fun, every saturday. Really hard to keep muscle that way. But it is very enjoyable.

    Keep it up, sounds like you are doing great.

    I'm guessing from what I notice in my area that speed is average to slightly above average. I run anywhere between 4 and 10 miles at a pace of 6.5 to 7.5 miles an hour depending on terrain, temperature, wind, and the actual distance. I'm also closer to 49 then I am 48.

    Don't let it get to you. I started running in March and I think it was the end of April that I put in my longest effort to that date. Four miles in an hour and fifteen minutes. I felt good about it, considering I wouldn't have even thought of running three months prior to that. Stick with it and your speed and endurance will increase. The faster you are running the more calories you are burning and the better your blood flow too.

    For anyone trying to better their time - technique can play a MASSIVE roll. Learn how to breathe and learn proper mechanics, you'll increase your pace DRASTICALLY. Just research it.

    Stick at it, mix up pace and distance. You will get quicker. Keep a log.


    I did 11k thismorning 61min. Is that fast - who gives a fook. I couldn't run 200 yards a year ago 😜

    This thread just shattered me. I was so freaking happy that i did a mile in 12 minutes today i almost shed a tear. I ended up doing 2 miles in 30 minutes...lots of walking on 2nd mile.....no wind, cramps and serious amounts of sweat pooring off me....guess im just a regular slob, but not for to much longer
    Only compare yourself to you. I know I suck at running, but I always time my route and compare it to the last time. It's like I'm racing myself.

    Also, would you have even considered running 2 miles when you were 275? (Yeah, I hit up your profile. Keep up the good work!)

    Just eat less? Who knew it was so easy to NOT be fat?

    This is a great attitude. I usually average about 10-12 mins/mile. A few years ago, I could do about 7-8 mins/mile (and do 10 miles at a stretch). Not anymore, though. I'd like to build my endurance back up there - my current self will lose to my past self, but I'm hoping my future self will be better than any of them.

    Just keep at it, it's gradual but you'll get there.

    I can run 1.5miles (2.4km) in around 08.30. I'm tired as hell at the end of it but I do it purely as an assessment to see where i'm at

    i go about 6 k's in 30 ish minutes. I only run once a week now though (used to do it 3-4 times a week, for 10 k's at a time) as im trying to build more muscle.. i didnt find it too difficult to increase my pace/distance when i was really focussing on running. I was doing 10 k's in about 45-50 mins within a few months of not being able to even GO 8k's... And yeah proper technique and breathing helped HEAPS! especially in injury prevention. No more sore joints, just sore muscles.



    but really screw all the bs. just chuck your headphones in and enjoy the experience dont stress about any of the other crap
