    Fastest I have ever ran a mile was around 6:15. I was quick but I also weighed like 150lbs. I was skeletor and never want to be that small again. I rather be my size now and a bit slower than go back to that. Most runners look frail.

    I can run a 6:33 mile at 230, so perhaps some people can do it, and can keep a 6.5 mile pace for an hour, but I am not sacrificing my gains for more cardiovascular fitness. You are basically better than 80% of the population with a run time of 7:30 or less.

    Edit: To clarify, I am 6'5"

    Edit 2: 1.5mile was when I ran the mile time, 1.5 was 9:53

    I used to think thats how you got better at running. Short and intense. The key is easy and long, and patience. Even the 800 m run is largely aerobic, which is why peter snell was doing 100 mile weeks building his base before doing more intense, shorter training.

    This. Long easy runs are EVERYTHING when it comes to anything longer than 400m, and even then it helps. Just build up to an easy 90min run 1-3 times per week and you are basically set for 90% of non-competitive runners.

    Long and easy runs do not translate to running fast.

    Sprints and short distance hill runs help you run faster.

    just converted my run time of about 4.50-5mins per km to miles per min and comes to about 6.5-7.5 mins to do 1 mile.

    however this could be quicker if its just, complete the 1 mile as soon as possible. how quick? prob a solid 6-7 mins sort of thing.
    to do 5 mins per mile, which is 1.6km, is to do something like 3.5 mins for a km. that's fkin quick, thats top tier level ****.

    my times are based on running 4-6kms.

    yeah, but you can't run fast without a base.

    AFTER you have a large aerobic base built from high mileage, low intensity. Intervals and higher intensity running is important for peaking before a race. It "brings out" all the endurance you have built.

    The average person off the street probably runs a mile in like 10 minutes or greater, If you are running a mile in less than 7:30 you are much faster and in much better shape than probably 90% of the population. But ^ intervals are the way to go.

    best i've ever done is 2 in 12min

    currently trying to get back it but i'm 200lb now compared to the 145 i was when i last consistently ran(high school wrestling) and these shin splints now are killer...

    I want to run 2x a week to build it up again starting at 1 9min mile and increase from there but I cant run more than 1x every 2 weeks due to the shin pain and it blows

    Slow down (srs). Once I slowed down, mine went away.

    Unless you are already doing your runs at a low intensity and hr, then idk.

    literally all i'm doing is 1 mile at a 9min pace. just 1 mile. to which i got 10/10 shin splints. so i waited 2 weeks for them to go away and did another 1 mile @ 9min. and i've done 6 miles like this over 12 weeks with the shin splints happening each time, albeit they're 5/10 pain compared to the origional 10/10 pain now.

    So all I can do is just keep running and hope they completely go away over time and once I stop getting them doing the 1 mile i'll start increasing distance slowly


    I read that running on a treadmil you should also do a slight incline, which helped

    i guess I can slow down from a 9min pace to a 10min+ pace but that just seems too slow. I'm pretty sure I can do 6:30 pace now if i wasn't worried about the shins, since i do HIIT stairs daily and have the cardio for it

    After you heal up, try going slower. It feels hard to do at first, but just go super slow.

    No doubt that’s crazy fast. But those types of runners are born not made

    More impressed with someone who could run a 6ish minute mile and bench a respectable amount of weight for reps (225, 275, 300 something like that). That means training has gone into both and it’s also harder to get mass going fast versus being a 90 lb etheiopian

    About 10 years ago, I had a goal of a 6 minute mile. I was at about 7 minutes. It took me about 3 months of training hard to get there, but I did it. I never ran seriously after that again. I was also about 130 lb then.

    My training was to use a treadmill at a gym. Put it at slightly above a 6 minute pace (I did like 10.5 MPH), ran as long as I could, then slowed it down for a short while, then back to the fast pace again, and repeat for a few miles. Eventually I was at a point where I could go almost the whole faster pace for a mile, so I tried it outside the next decent day. That day everything went perfect. Was even doubting if I'd make it, but then I ran past a sloot and she smiled at me and that motivated me to push harder and I got it in 5:58

    A 5 minute mile is really, really good. That's like solid hs varsity level.


    EDIT: added training

    In H.S. I ran track and cross county.

    Fastest mile time was 4:42 and fastest 5k was 16:58. I weighted 115 lbs.

    Won the ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot for my age range in Austin. Prob the only trophy I was proud of.

    So my 1.5 mile PR run was 10:30, which isn't fast, but I powerlifted, so w/e. And I probably did most of my runs 9:30 min or below. Often had shin splints and I wasnt even doing high mileage.

    After a large break, I tried running by heart rate and keeping the pace super easy, and it was like 11-13 minute miles. Feels way too slow at first but I got used to it. No more shin splints.

    6-7 minute pace for a 5 or 10k, I think would be a better measurement.

    Not sure if I could run a sub-6 at my weight though. Best I ever did was under 5:30 when I was in middle school and weighed 130.

    Other thing to check is your gait and get shoes that fit that. Nike’s for me tend to be horrible and lead to shin splints. Saucony have been great shoes for me. That and more slowly increasing distance and intensity let me run at a 7:15 pace 5k distance while weighing between 175 - 180. I still had more in the tank, but I was training for a half so didn’t want to risk injury during a training run.

    Fuark man I'm trying to get my mile time below 8 minutes I've been stuck. I run almost every day too. It's hard trying to lug around all this muscle.

    Nice, that’s pretty awesome.

    Are you doing long and slow runs as well? It was kind of crazy, when I was training, I would do a lot of my runs at a relatively slow pace (9:30 - 10:30) and definitely at a slow pace for the my distant 9+ mile runs, with just lifting on the side, hardly did any speed work. But yet, I got unintentionally faster on the shorter runs.

    I would like to give Maffetone training a shot. But the first couple of months seem extremely tedious.

    pretty sure lasting longer is way healthier than speed

    a mile run in 5 minutes i don't even think you use your aerobic system
