Actually you can run even slower and have a valid reason. I had a severe injury to my right foot in my arch when I was 14. It doesn't roll correctly anymore and causes me a lot of pain when running. It even made my knee cap pull to the right so I had to stop getting on the treadmill even though I was only walking fast and had to switch to using bicycles. My senior year of high school we had to pass the presidents physical fitness test. I told my teacher that I have difficulty running and that it begins hurting as quickly as a quarter of a mile, so he said to walk. Then they said there was a time limit the morning of and that if you didn't pass this fitness test you couldn't graduate. I had tears in my eyes by the end of it and I barely made the time. My teacher couldn't even look me in the eye because he saw how much pain I was in and the other teacher that was there said since I had that problem I shouldn't have had to run it. So yes, it can be pretty hard to get a good time running a mile, don't assume everyone was born with the ability to run fast. Some people just can't do it because their feet can't handle the pressure, even if they're in shape.

Why does everyone who posts their time get thumbs down? Just because there are people that can run a mile faster than OP, who basically inferred that he/she is slow, doesn't mean they deserve thumbs downs.

That's so cool that you were born in 1990 and you have a 10 year old kid! I'm sure your parents were proud when you got pregnant at the age of 11.

I just want to say that 10 minutes is probably for the people that do have disabilities, and since you didn't mention having a handicap, I'm saying you are a whiner and lazy

I'm a 13 year old girl and I have a very loose shoulder. Running, especially long distances, jarrs my shoulder out of it's socket. I'm awful at long distance. But I can easily run a mile well under 10 minutes, even when I have to pop my own shoulder back into place every few laps.

  Y0U_fml  |  0

I'm sure there are a few circumstances where you couldn't run it in under 10, but most people are whiners. You can't just say 'This hurts I'm giving up.' (My iPod wouldn't let me post any more on the last comment so I had to make another haha)

I'm sorry but that is just sad. A mile isn't even that far. My schools volleyball team can run a mile in under 8:00 so u really shouldn't complain. I can run one in under 6:00. Stop complaining.

I was a total fat ass in high school (still am) and I ran the mile in just under 8 mins. When I was in the military I had to run 2 miles in under 15:54. YDI for being out of shape.

I have asthma, and the only time I run a 10 min mile, is when there are more than 5 miles involved. learn to control your breathing and just run faster.

Everyone shoot me dead for posting my mile time..................fine...............but last year I ran a mile in 9:00. Which is bad, except for the fact that I had blisters all over my feet due to excessive dancing on pointe, and because of all the blisters, I had to run the damn thing in flip-flops. 9 minutes. Yes.........thumb me down.......I know you will..........go ahead.............

You should be able to walk a 10 minute mile. To be honest, running your hardest and not getting under 10 minutes is not very great, you should try to improve that.

Not everyone on earth that can't run fast is obese. I know plenty of people that take care of themselves well but they just can't run fast. Perhaps OP is one of them. Everyone excels at their own thing and I'm sure OP has something that they're really good at.

A ten minute mile is not fast, Scrubs. Christ, I've been smoking for 5 years and run a mile in a little under 7.

111- It's no big deal. It's happened to me too 106- I see your point, but there are a lot of people who seem to gain more weight than others although they eat and exercise similar amounts. I would not consider those people obese because they are more "big boned". The teacher of OP's PE class should only make students re-do the mile if they aren't trying. We don't know if OP was trying or not.

I know. I have to in order to pass gym? Wait, that was supposed to end in a period! What's a period you ask, well, it's a thing you use to end a sentence that contains a statement. NO, although it sounds the same, it's not that timeframe when your mom is pissed at you for everything. The two words are homonyms, oh, wait, I'm confusing you aren't I? We will save that lesson for day two of first grade. Now, on to counting!

#210--"anyone not obese can run a 10 min mile"...you sure about that? I'm 5'2" and weigh about 105 pounds, and I'm pretty sure I couldn't run a mile at all (no stamina). (And I make no claims whatsoever about being in shape, because I know I'm not...just naturally small.) Luckily we didn't have a stupid gym class. When we ran the mile (which half the time they couldn't even make us do, because the field was too muddy), all we had to do was...do it. They didn't care how long it took. Heck, they didn't even care if we ran, which is why most people walked. We did have to run for about 5 minutes every day for warm-ups though (to a song, so however long the song was). I can run that long, and fairly fast, but it makes my ankle hurt so I normally don't like running very long.

I'm a navy SEAL I've seen full grow men try out to be a SEAL and not run a mile in ten minutes it's sad next time push harder and don't slow down find a pace that works for you. and for all you people that don't believe Osama is dead he is.

106 that means you haven't met a lot of people. Nobody in my high school gym class is obese and only a few of them can run a mile in less than 10 minutes. I am so thin I'm almost too thin, I have struggles for years to stay in the healthy weight range on he other side of the scale. I can only run a mile in 13 minutes, and then I can't stand for at least 15 minutes

Reply
  joa76  |  3

You can't really compare a 1 mile run and a 2 mile run. They require completely different pacing, and completely different stamina levels. My mom (who happens to be both a runner and retired army) always says she strongly prefers the 2 mile and finds it much easier to meet the time with that than with 1. ETA: This is not at all where this comment was supposed to go...it was supposed to be a reply to a comment mentioning the army's 2 mile run requirement.

How is it the teachers fault that you and OP aren't in shape? The whole point of the class is to teach you to be healthy, if you can't run a mile under ten minutes you obviously didn't learn anything and deserve the failing grade. I am very slow, but after a semester in my Weight Lifting I class I managed to get my mile time down to seven minutes, there is no reason anyone can't do the same.

thats not true.. you have to be super fast when your 13 to do that. i'm in pretty good shape and 13, and i run a mile in 7:45, which is considered fast for someone who is 13.

Swimming and wrestling are definitely the two sports that get you in the best shape. But track and cross country runners probably get the shortest mile times.

Im an 800 guy so i rarely run the mile... ran 5:02 at a 4xmile relay a couple weeks ago, could'a been faster though as it was a tactically inept race I have little experience with. keep in mind, I run everyday, be it intrevals, tempo, or easy recovery. yay track!
