Your Best Mile Time?

OT, what’s the best mile (1,600 meters) time you’ve achieved in your life?

My best is 6:03. It’s probably better than at least 90% of my school, but probably mediocre on the track team since people who join sports are already confident about their athletic ability.

8:03 :/

7:11 or something like that.

It’s okay, babe, 8:03 not that bad. In fact, that’s probably better than the average depending on your age.

That’s really, really vague.

5 mins is pretty damn fast and 10 mins is below average.

My best mile is 5:37 on the spot. Its not easy, I had hyperventilate for 3 mins and focus, and breath very deeply hole time running. Takes a bit of training as well.

6:66 \m/ epic.

I haven’t checked and don’t know but I run very fast.

i think i remember doing 3 mile run in around 23 min so 23/3 is about 8 minutes.

I have never run a timed mile. I remember that I managed to get my time on one kilometre below three minutes a few years ago and stopped watching the time after that when I started running longer for fun rather than to compete.
I had to manage 3 kilometres in under 12:30 a while ago in order to study sports and eventually finished my run at 11:52 without gunning it. So I’m probably somewhere around 5:20 to 5:30 right now. I’d have to train to find out what a good consistent lap time would be for me to set my pace accordingly.

I don’t know.

It would be at least seven minutes or under if you only do one mile, though. Unless you’re some inhuman beast who can run all three consistently.

I have never run a timed mile.

Were physical education different back then? Through middle school onward, I have my mile time timed every year in a PE class.

6:40 was my fastest mile time in school.(4th or 5th grade, I forget which)

Other than the school ones for PE, I have rarely timed myself since then, but I imagine I am still about 7 mins/mile.

Mile time? never done any mile running.
I’ve done 4:32 on 1000m, though.

You get tired after a while and start running slower, so I think you reached 1 mile in less than 8 minutes.

I think sometime in my freshman year I did a mile in around 7:00.

I believe it was 5 minutes.

The last time I had a PE class was freshman year, and I ran the mile somewhere around seven minutes.

If I ran it now, I bet I could run it in about six if I pushed myself.

 
Flag Post

4 minutes.

i dont run miles and i dont count them

N/A. Never ran for more than 400 meters. That took about 2 mins.

 
Flag Post

5:59

Around 10 minutes I think.

I only had to do a timed mile once, in sixth grade. My school didn’t even have a PE requirement for 8th, 11th, and 12th grades.

I’d imagine you’d be fast because of the name.
