25- I don't see why your comment is thumbed down. 2 plus 2 equals 4 people! ;D Also, people who run for soccer or Crosscountry usually run more than five miles a day. I'm surprised the coaches don't just time the run themselves. Anyway, OP you're better than those losers for telling the truth! :)
I'm pretty sure soccer is a spring sport so I don't see how you have tryouts already. My school is only having soccer conditioning but anyways 4 miles isn't a lot considering my conditioning runs are 10 miles (no bragging intended, it sucks). But atleast you are honest and the running you have done will be shown on the pitch so the other girls will get caught. :)
Lmao that's why you should always cut your time by 15-30 secs shorter then your original time yes honesty is the best policy but come on unless you've been running all summer smudging the truth for the first 2 or 3 runs is alot better then having to run it all over again an by the 3rd run you shouldn't have to cut it down... An the coaches can't time the whole team while they run at least not at my school they couldn't cause we ran in clumps...
#154, I never said that, I was saying that the guys who lied about how fast they were will be ****** cause they've presumably taken shortcuts to fitness and the whole "football in the UK, soccer in the US" was me having a little fun. its ridiculous how worked up some people get over a different word for the same thing
Well, they are all gonna suck on the field, don't worry coach WILL notice. And plus, you did the right thing!(:
OP said that it was the first day of tryouts, so I'm assuming they have to do different things on different days to make the team. He didn't lie about his time running the 2 miles and the other people did, but when the time comes where there is a game or more practicing, the coach will see that OP is a faster runner and is in better shape than most of his teammates (because you can run faster when you are in better shape) and coach will realize things. Get it now?
And once again, the person who does the right thing gets shit upon.
