    It's not just training..... It's an attitude - if you want to run well everything has to focus on running. The first thing you should think about in the morning is running.

    1600- 4:30.1, high school
    3200- 10:15...(Ran only once). I lost a race in the mile during the last 100m of the race, so coach made me run the 3200. It turned out to be fun.
    5k- 16:43
    5 miles- 28:25(split in 10k)
    10k-35:50
    25k-1:45:30

    Most of these races were in high school. I'm now getting ready to graduate college and I can look back and see where I could have improved. When I was a freshman I ran 2:25 in the 800, and 5:40 in the mile. I also had a 23 minute 5k. As I continued to train, I steadily improved my times to those list above. I would estimate that I did this running 25-35 miles a week. So if there are any kids running in high school, who might be freshman and want to see good times by your senior year....PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. This means you need to put in your miles. There were a lot of days where I didn't run, and I also didn't eat the right foods...I still don't! You can achieve wonderful times if you actually do it right. Along with a strong base, you need to put in your fair share of hill workouts and speed work to help your body adjust to having no oxygen when running a race. I used to practice this when on a long run by holding my breath between telephone poles and such. I'm not going to write a book...but I would love to talk to anyone working out and trying to improve their times. I'm not an expert by any means, but I love to help others and can offer my own experience as a guide.

    Re: Pr's

    Having graduated (last year) from a small, New England high school, I've competed in pretty much everything. Here's a list of everything I've ever done at least twice. (many field events are from a very poor attempt at a decathlon - milers can't throw shot!)

    100 - 12.3
    200 - 26.9
    300(practice) - 41.5
    400 - 57.4
    600 (ind) -1:40.0
    800 - 2:07.9
    1000 (ind) - 2:51.8
    1500 (ind) - 4:38.3
    1500 (out) - 4:32.5
    1600 - 4:37.3 (the mile: the only true race)
    3200 - 10:43
    110HH - 20.3
    5K XC - 17:31
    5K road - 17:24
    4.2 miles - 24:23 (5:39 pace)
    1 hour - 8.7 mi (not a race - just for fun)
    LJ - 15' 9"
    TJ - 32' 0"
    HJ - 4' 8"
    SP - 26' 5"
    JT - 85'
    DT - 69' 6"
    Decathlon (eek!) - 3423

    So there you have it... say what you want about me, but at least I'm versatile!

    Re: Pr's

    Is this limited to competetive runners only?  Hope my intrusion here isn't unwelcome...

    The following PR's are all at least 9 years old:
    40YD: 5.05
    100: 12.4
    400: 64
    Mile: 6:30
    SP (12#): 56' 9.75" (16#) 51' 5.5"
    DT: (HS):160'5" (COL): 148'8"
    HAMMER: (16#): 145'6"
    35#WT: 50'5"
    JT: 135'

    RECENT PR's:
    5K: 32:59 (Oct 5)
    6MI: (non race) 66:08

    Just started running in March and (as is obvious) I'm quite slow. Never was much of a distance runner, wasn't really conducive to throwing things far !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|border=0!

    Re: Pr's

    Okay most of these times are from a decade ago...I'm 31 now

    100m 11.1
    200m 22.7
    400m 51.9
    1600m 4:59 (at the end of a he$$ workout in college for XC)
    5K 17:02 (the first 5K of an 5 mile race1996)<br />5 Mile 29:23 (same 5 mile from aboveI died at the end)
    10K 39:36 (way back in 1989, haven't run one since)
    Half Marathon ??? I'll tell you tomorrowrunning my first<br />Marathon 3:57 (non-chip timedtook me almost 10 minutes to get to the starting line)

    As a runner I'm sort of an anomaly--I have sprinters speed but with good training I can hang in there on a long run. My claim to fame was back in 1989/90. I'm one in my high schools history to have made All-Conference as a Sprinter (100m, 200m, and 4X100 relay) and then as a Cross Country (5K) runner.

    As I'm older now my goal for this winter after running the Disney Marathon in January of '04 is to do some good speed training and try to better my 5K time to under 16:30 and my 10K to 35:00
