    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.

    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.

    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.
