    I broke 8 mins today!

    I have never ran a mile in under 8 minutes before today, but I did it! I know there are plenty of people who can run way faster than that, and that the best of the best can even break 4 minutes (jesus fucking christ), but as someone who used to not even be able to run a full mile straight, I am quite proud of myself.

    Are there any other runners on this forum? If so, what's your fastest?

    OMG Congrats! I used to run. I was in cross country in high school. My fastest mile was 7:20
    2 was 17:06
    3 was 26:16

    and 4 and 5 never got under 10 minutes a mile.

    I'm so out of shape now. But I'm quite proud of my times.

    OMG! You broke 8 minutes? Can you fix them? Maybe you'll need the doctor.

    Real Response
    I used to run/jog/walk to school every day, it was about 16km and took about an hour 10.
    How far is a mile? I thought those were extinct long long ago?

    In the states, we use the mile.

    a 5k is roughly 3 miles. It's just under. I think a 16k is 10 miles.

    Whooo congrats! I always love to see progress, that's the best motivator. I miss running D:

    Used to be able to run 10 kms (6.2 miles) in just under 40 mins. No way I can do that anymore, I've been slacking so much this year

    Congratulations... Keep it up! I was that one kid in middle school that could run a 7 minute mile, clocking in at 6:52. Sadly, those times are behind me.

    @babytroop123456:

    I did swim team in high school, and I did water polo too. I don't miss swim much but I do miss polo.

    @Sari: I never did cross country, I was always a swimmer! I just started running more seriously last month so for all you people making fun of my time, I don't really care LOL. I'm training for distance races anyway, not sprinting.

    @Freja: Yesssss! That was my point exactly lol. I'm pleased with my progress. c: It is definitely a big motivator for me.

    @tchaikovsky: I was never that kid LOL. But maybe after some more training I'll get there!

    I absolutely love swimming too. I've worked as a lifeguard for the past 3 years.
    But seriously, 8 minutes isn't bad. I mean.... Compared to some people obviously it might look terrible (if you can run a mile in under 6 minutes don't even talk to me lol) but it's not that bad. It was always amazing to set a new personal record. Even if I was still slower than just about every other runner on the team.
    And I can't sprint. Worth anything. So yeah. lol
