    I'm not a teen but was thinking my daughter might have been here ... she ran the mile last spring for the first year in track ...


    13 y/o 7th grade girl did a 6:03 mile after her first month of any type of run-training !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/redface.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/redface.gif|border=0!) ... I was pretty proud of her!


    I ran in school and my best was 5:28 in HS as a junior (about 20 years ago that was a pretty good time for a girl, lol ) ... I think daughter will blow my time away if she sticks with it!


    Keep running ...........................................................

    Dude!  A mile is a warm-up!   !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|border=0!

    Why would anyone want to time their warm-up? !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/confused.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/confused.gif|border=0!

    At my age, I don't bother timing anything under a 10 K.

    Take care.

    Guys, relax...

    First of all, your subject was on the home page, so I hadn"t noticed it was in a "reserved" forum. Sometimes, some young folks like yourselves dominate discussions in other non-youth forums, so I just jumped in, unaware that this discussion was happening in "Way Cool Running". Please accept my apologies.

    Second, you guys have to learn to relax. When it's 100 degrees outside, and someone is yelling about all the snow coming down, the best thing to do is just to smile and walk away. You have to see the humour in situations like these, especially because...

    ... I am really impressed with your amazing times. I could never come close to those times in my youth, and I certainly will never approach them now. It's just the way the human body changes over time. Bravo for your performances... they are the sign of great things to come. Just never forget that your talent will never fully bloom without a lot of hard work.

    Now, one has to be careful about one says. My anaerobic capacity is still pretty good... you can ask my martial arts students about that. But I do prefer running longer distances, especially the marathon, just like most of the people in this discussion seem to enjoy doing the mile. I have much respect for both the runners all distances, and teen runners competing. Indeed, I have been involved in coaching/training someone who is coming on 16 who swept all running events from the 800 m to the 5 K in a regional meet last spring.

    Track1234: While I am not particularly fast (normally, I finish in the first 30-40% of racers), I'm don't think anyone mediocre or not, who hasn't trained specifically for a marathon, should ever attempt running one.

    And no comments about toughness whatsoever were implied, nor should be perceived. Humour should have been perceived, not lack of toughness about the difference in running distances.

    Anyways, sorry again about crashing your forum. Your performances truly are amazing, and I wish you all much luck, and safe training, for the future.

    Take care.

    Re: How quick can you guys run the mile? Post here!

    My best mile time is a 5:01.63 TT not to long ago but I really haven't done any running at all in the past month so basically I'd be lucky to run a 5:30-5:40 now. When people ask what my best mile time is when they find out I enjoy running I usually say around 5-flat, partly because it makes me sound faster and partly because it annoys people when you know the exact time of your best performance.

    I agree a mile is just a warmup,  that's why you go jog aways first

    Heh, my 1500 time is 4:45, but the only timed mile I've ever run was in 7:20 right at around freezing temperature, out of shape.

    I know I've run faster for splits, so I guess I come out somewhere around 5 flat.
