to people who don't often get active, running your first mile is basically 9 to 12 minutes of hell, if you can make it through your first serious workout without complaining, you have taken the first true step into the body of an athlete.

I'm doing spring track to get in shape for soccer. Distance. pretty much avg. 5 miles a day, 6+ on Saturdays. I like it - but I hate meets. I can't keep a fast enough pace long enough. But during practices I'm the one who runs most and fastest :wall:



Anyway, My best mile is only 6:13, and my 800 (set it today) is 2:44:9. Not great, but I don't entirely mind too much, as long as I improve. Only a few meets left though.



And the over-me-classmen (I'm a freshman) all know me as well. Apparently I look like some guy, last name Rooney, who did track before... but he was really bad ("if they add the first name, you're f***ed" said the one who started it). And I'm the kid who stiffarmed another to beat him (I lost a second... and lost). :roll: Instincts.



I'll probably do winter next year, and maybe Cross-Country if I don't make the soccer team (and don't commit suicide)



PS. Our captain is a god. He's faster than the sprinters and does distance. He's endorsed by Puma. I think he has a 3 summit min. mile.

I'm in 8th. I love running the mile, my best time is 5:44. I have improved sufficiently over the past few years, in 6th grade my best time on the mile was 8:32.

I'm a HS junior (Illinois) and I run Cross Country (in the fall). Average runner. I find it fun, and it's good to know that you're keeping in shape during the fall season. I'll add more if this thread still survives into fall 2009. :)

we had a kid like that. he was a freshman named jake. he would run his race pace at practice and would attempt to beat the best freshman (lol)

he dropped the baton in his first 4 by 8 and his best mile was a 6:29? he never really improved.

one day jake challenged me to a "race" for our two mile recovery run.

i ran the first mile in 5:50 and the second in 5:55.. it takes 12:00 to qualify for districts in the 3200. so basically if the coach saw me i could have qualified for the two mile, but i'll save my energy for next XC season

I have a good pace when it comes to practice, but it's too slow to be an effective race pace. And I can't run faster long enough. I just do worse at meets :wall:



And this Rooney only looks like me, remember. But most people just say all red-heads look the same. :P

That's great for middle school. I wish our middle school had made me do track lol. Apparently they had a track team but I didn't know 'till like yesterday.



PS. this track season is the first time I've done track/effectively run. The rest of the distance team did soccer in the fall, and one Freshman who did track since like 6th grade (he's pretty much a captain but he's freshman... he's a great guy). Then there's me and two others who've never really run before.

Skatepank has a point, I think there's a rule about calling a thread "The Official [Insert whatever here] Thread".



I'm going to start running once summer starts, mainly to get in much better shape for hockey, rugby, and football. Two years ago, I tried long distance running, and found that despite being out of shape, I can still give a decent performance. I figure that if I was in better shape, I'd be a great longer, it almost seems to me like my body is made for running. Almost all of my strength is in my legs, I'm tall, and find that I have pretty good endurance.



And yes, I think everyone loves running. Except indoors, that is horrible.

There's no such thing as regret. A regret means you are unhappy with the person you are now,
and if you're unhappy with the person you are, you change yourself. That
regret will no longer be a regret, because it will help to form the new,
better you. So really, a regret isn't a regret.
It's experience.

very impressive for middle school. how long have you been running?

your 800 time is a bit weak considering your other times are so good though. you should be able to pr at 2:26. it will come with age.

From TIF rules. But I think it is pretty stupid for you all to jump on this guy for posting that. It's not like it's hurting you in any way...



Anyway. Distance. It's cool. /thread.



EDIT: To the above, this is my first year on a track team. But 4 years of lacrosse w/ one mile per practice has definetly helped :thumbsup:

Unless you count a ungracious, epileptic wobbling as running then yeah, I run.



If I even jog for 15 minutes, I'm flat on my face.

if your ever looking to be able to do a healthy jog, start off by running 5 minutes and walking 5 minutes. very good for beginners who are out of shape.

your 800 time is godly but its exactly double your 400 time, meaning you could easily improve your 400. still, im guessing your probably one of the best in your district?
