Lol... i dont know you but that is a very slow mile. Is there a chance you are carrying some excess padding?

after postponing my mile for about 6 months, my dad/teacher forced me to get up and run the mile.

i ran as fast as i could for 4 laps and got 10 minutes...

is it possible that i suck at cardio?

Yes.

Being lean and low weight doesnt mean you're "in shape".. theres people who havent worked out a day in their life that have low body fat but that doesnt mean they can go run 5miles.

^^HAHAHAHAHAHA

You haven't ran in months, that is why your time was crap.
Working out != conditioning.

I can walk a mile in < 12 minutes. You need to start running more, start slow, and short and increase as you can. You'll find its addictive.

If you don't do any sort of cardio or conditioning work then I don't see how you can expect to runa decent mile time. It's just not going to happen.

10 minutes is a pretty terrible time, though. In high school I was about the same size as you (lighter actually) and ran a 6 minute mile even with limited running experience.

if your lungs give out way before your legs give out than you need to work on your cardiovascular fitness. Running 4 laps which I assume is .25 miles each gives you about a 6mph rate on a treadmill... I am sure most people here who weigh twice as much can get on a treadmill and crank out a mile in the same time. Some people just naturally are able to run at good paces without training or after long layoffs.

I ran an 8 minute mile the other day not having done cardio for.... months, and I weigh 248 pounds. You have to work on that buddy.

If everything you say about working out, diet, and your 8% body fat, the only way I could see you running a 10 minute mile is if you went all out the first lap and gassed yourself. Even people that lift and don't do cardio at your build with your 'diet and 8%' body fat should be able to run under a 10 minute mile. Either you have severe asthma or ran that mile wrong or are not telling us the truth.

Just run the mile more often and try and beat your previous time.

Ive done 2 miles in 15 minutes @ 220lbs bodyweight
Just keep it at.

Or Squat.

The choice is yours :)

Cardiovascular fitness requires constant effort or it goes away. Quickly.

If you want to get better at the mile, you need to do short sprints to increase lung capacity, V02max, and help you learn to work through fatigue. Also, you'll need to jog farther than a mile to get used to being on your feet, and you'll need to actually run the mile every now and again to get a feel for the proper "effort pace."

I run a half-marathon much faster than I run the first half of a full marathon.

My "program" for sprinting is very "seat-of-the-pants." I call it "8 straights".
On a 1/4 track, I start with an easy two-lap jog.
Then, as I hit the first straight section, I sprint the straight as fast as I can, then slow down and jog/walk the curve, taking 30 seconds (not more), then sprint the straight, repeat until I have run "8 straights." I have experienced exercise-induced vomiting on the last two or three straights, because by the time I get to them, the 30 second rest is not enough to bring my heart rate back down.

Then a two lap cool-down jog. A slow jog. Think "airborne shuffle."

I do this once per week.
I also do hill repeats once a week. They are up-hill sprints, with a downhill jogs for a rest. Never on consecutive days.

If you try this, you'll need to adjust the number of "straights" and the rest periods to suit your level of fitness.
Good luck!

That really is just a mean thing to say.

The bleep test is a good way of improving your fitness.

But go with what you want. Do you want to be fit but a fit person who's legs are built for power and strength and short burts (powerlifting) or would you rather be a person who can run longer and have more muscular endurance but still be strong. (stearing more toward strongman).

The fact is you can still be fit and not be able to run too far. Like me. After 2 miles im killed.

take a chill pill, im sure he was kidding. and he was probably making a crack at it because of your name, also.

i have nasty asthma, and i can run a mile in 8 minutes. i am not in very good running shape. keep running the mile, over and over again. youll definitely get better.

oh my. anyway, my best timed mile was 5 minutes 25 seconds in college for football junior year. weighed about 205-210. got up to 240 by the next year and still ran a slow, pace mile in 6 and a 1/2 minutes. one needs to run to be good at it yes, but even though I haven't run distance in some time, I am pretty sure I can do a 7 minute mile and I am245 lbs now. As for talking about training boxing, doesn't one run a lot when they train boxing?

I can average 7 minute or less per mile for 3 miles.....been training on my cardio pretty hard i'm getting pretty good I run 2.3 miles a day(yes wierd number but i like my running path). useually come clocking about 14:20-14:30ish on a daily basis. you weigh 140lbs and ran a 10minute mile? no offence but it's not to near where it should be. high school mile runners are anywhere from 4-5 minute mark..... Heck I was a Tackle on D and a gaurd on offence i could run around 6-7 minute mile or less weighing close to 200lbs. I now weigh 172-175 and have improved my running and lifting a ton not trying to dis your running but just keep at it and keep working on cardio.


(helpfull hint some people prefer a a more of a cross country style run where they go from one place to another personally my run takes me up around the hospital of our town and back which comes to 2.3miles. On a stationary treadmill or machine my running 2.3 miles my time is ALWAYS slower.May not be that way for everyone i just like being able to look and physically see where i'm goin and how much i got left it helps me know when i can kick it in.)



last year during track we had someone who ran the 800 (2 laps or half mile) in 1:57 he's a amazing running our whole track team was REALLY good we won state.......but our slowest person running the mile was under 5min mark heck the slowest thrower on the team he weighs a good 250-260+ got in under 8minutes.

so when someone can take a punch and you gas in about 30 seconds because you have no cardio, what are you going to do? Not trying to be a prick, I am serious. Boxing or any sort of combat sport goes hand in hand with being in somewhat good cardiovascular shape. Something for you to consider.
