Ouch, OP. I feel your pain, I've got asthma so I can't run long distances very easily. But come on, three laps? Were you crawling the whole time or was it just a super long run? Ps: nice username OP

i just realized it was just 1 mile....3 laps behind in one mile? those are some fast classmates you have...

Exactly what I was thinking, I'm confused as to how large of a distance these laps are.. Standard running tracks in the U.S. is 4 laps/mile aren't they?

Reply

yeah standard is 4. so many kids are on crack and adderall though, it's like they're in fast forward mode

I think that the track at my old high school was much smaller, and was more like 6-8 laps to make the mile. In my opinion though, I hate running miles on a circular track, taking the turns really drains much more energy than if you were just running straight. Also being a sprinter and not a long distance runner really doesn't help either!

I suppose it's possible. Op's name alludes to him/her not being in shape, but this has happened to me too. I wasn't "fluffy", but I did suffer from major insomnia, so I literally zombied my way through 1 lap before almost passing out and calling it quits. I would imagine if someone is very overweight and has trouble running/ walking, coupled with sleepiness would be enough to slow him/her down to 3 laps behind everyone else.

ummmm...how do you not realize youre three laps down? were you running with your eyes closed? theres no way you could be doing good at all if people were passing you.

I hated running so much I walked once out of the teachers sight in high school and middle! I even played injured once so wouldn't have to finish. I wasn't fat, just super lazy.

3 laps behind? Typically there are only 4 laps, at least from by high school track experience, being a 1600 runner...

I think it's funny how we encourage such unhealthiness in our society..... It's a sad day in America when we don't value our own body's. P.S.- you can be unhealthy and skinny, just because your fat or heavy doesn't make you unhealthy, but it can attribute to many health problems, such as arthritis, diabetes, cancer (because of rapid cell production), and much much more

135- I totally agree. This friend of mine is totally unhealthy and drinks up to two litters of soda a day. She's so skinny..but in reality she's unhealthy. I'm not so skinny but I do eat healthy and workout daily. But, people assume that skinny people are healthy.

At my school, inside, one mile is fourteen laps. Depending on how small the track OP is running on it could be more than four laps.

#88, don't you just love it when you insult someone you don't know who can't defend themselves over the internet and can possibly be younger than you, you threadjacking piece of shit.

91- That must be a tiny oval of a track. Ours is 4 laps. And don't feel bad OP. You're lapping everyone sitting on the couch;)

Keep running, finish that mile! How small of a lap are you running if you've been passed that many times? ..or were you just crawling, be honest.

If you read the above comments/replies you would know that I already knew that, thank you for the math lesson, was never my strong subject.

That's kind of a douch thing to do if you call the OP "fatty" while persuading him/her to lose weight. Bitch...

Reply

I hope that insulting people you don't know anonymously over the internet makes you feel better about yourself, because it really takes some kind of hard work in order to achieve being that insecure.

Reply

You know, calling someone fat isn't going to make them lose weight. Or even if it does, it might cause other unwanted problems. Besides, unless someone's morbidly obese, there's nothing wrong with being chuncky. And before you imply that I'm overweight, I'm 5'8 at 130 lbs.

Reply

I'm 5'10 ann 130lbs ann can barely walk up the stair case without panting, much less run a mile, so assuming the op is a fat person is pretty much rude unless your trying to say I'm fat as well

Reply

93- congrats your height has nothing to do with how fast you can run. and a 5:30 mile isn't fast anyway

Reply

I assumed that op meant well relative to previous attempts. Though it sounds like he's never been lapped by everyone 3 times before, so I'm not entirely sure

I feel bad for you OP, but three laps? Really? I'm happy you tried and you did your best, but... really? Three laps?
