I'm not much of a runner.

Right now I'm coming in a 15:24 for 2 miles.

I need to start upping the distance of my runs to improve my time.

Interested to see how other Arfcommers do on the 2 mile.

Poll inbound.

Around a track while unencumbered? Around 12 minutes.

About 15 minutes if I feel motivated.

Link Posted: 6/16/2009 6:16:57 PM EST
17:30-18:00

Before you laugh, mind you in February I could not run for a full mile.

50~60 yards and heart attack city.

Probably in the 1530-1600 time frame right now.

A bit of practice and I'd drop significantly.
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 6:18:45 PM EST
14:39 is my best so far.
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 6:19:23 PM EST
13-14 minutes.

The 5 mile is where I really shine...35 minutes, fastest time ever.

My fastest pft ever was 20:45-3 miles.

Between 10min30sec and 11min if I'm on a tread mill. A little longer say 12min cross country/street. I can run 3miles in 18min.

ETA: started running when I was 30. 39 now. I used to run every day, now just two to three days a week, and bike the others instead, as my knees and back like it better.

Don't know. I've not bothered to even run a mile in a few years.

I'm probably that or worse. I'm not even sure I could run the first mile in 9 min.the second mile would be longer than that!
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 6:20:39 PM EST
Fuck two miles? Where is the option for never?



Haha, In reality, 13:30 - 14. I just ran at a 10 degree incline for 20 minutes, that was not fun

2 miles? About 2 days.

Seriously though, no weight. Just your running shoes.

I don't believe I could run two miles unless it was to save my kids' lives.

Deteriorated hips and spine kinda suck, ya know?

-p.

My last PT test was 14:49. Not fast, but I never ran once in my life before I joined the army, and I've still got quite a bit of gut to lose. We don't really PT hard enough at DLI to get anywhere, so I've started working out on my own a lot again. I wanna leave with a 300. Got another 9 months.

13:00 - 13:20 most of the time for me.

Link Posted: 6/16/2009 6:35:07 PM EST


No one can walk 2 miles in 12 minutes. The faster guy I ever knew could run 2 miles in just over 10 minutes.

I also call BS to most of that say you can run it in less than 13 minutes.

I can run mine in less than 13 and I am in peak physical condition. I run all the time too.

Ha ha not so much. The 5 mile time was college cross country, and I was maybe the 4th or 5th place guy on our team. We raced against guys who ran 5 in the 23:30's. No shit.

2-mile's really not much of a distance event. You'd do better to focus on running quarters and halves with some speed. As with any fitness goal, the workouts can be a lot more complex than that, but it's a good starting point. Even putting in some 20-milers won't speed up your 2-mile much, you need to condition for faster paces, and get comfortable sustaining them after you're burned. Whatever you consider a "good" mile time, you need track work to sustain it after the first one.

in Basic and AIT I was in the low 14:00's (1999)

Now I can probably get it in under 30:00.

My best 1.5mile is 8:13. No fucking clue what 2 miles is. Never timed it. Usually do 1.5 to qual for both my jobs(AF and DoD), or slower/further for fun runs.
Link Posted: 6/16/2009 6:40:26 PM EST
In my prime I could do 13:35 max speed and received two Phys fitness excellence patches.

I decided a long time ago that I would only compare my times to mere mortals. Comparing yourself to Kenyan runners is a losing proposition.

It sure the hell is for me.

ETA: I should add that we got up to running 6 or so miles in the police academy, but they weren't timed runs. Thank god.

Good to know. I really have no idea how to up my times. I just thought running further and longer would up my lung capacity, and therefore, my endurance.

Way back in my Sophomore year of high school I ran a 9:58!

Now I might be able to get in under twelve with a nice tailwind.

1993 - I did two miles in 12:02 (Personal best).

2009 - Why the fuck would I try to run two miles?
(If I had to guess I would say that it would be somewhere around 16 minutes.)

You are barely running 6min 30sec miles. Your "peak physical condition" is not very peak, if that is all you can do.
