hey buddy, you're putting in the effort. more than some kids can say! a lot give up
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.
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
Three laps behind? Wow but you should've at least kept going until the time was up even if the teacher stopped you.
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
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.
Any body else think of the movie run fat boy when they read this??
I feel bad for you OP, but three laps? Really? I'm happy you tried and you did your best, but... really? Three laps?
