I can do it in 27 minutes after a few weeks of training. What should i be working towards?
Under 20 min. Though I've only ever done that on a treadmill which is substantially easier.
This; this was my pr when I ran cc in high school.
I thought track was easier
Treadmill is easier. My PR for 3k was 18:33 @ 195lbs. I feel if I ever decided to drop all of this mass(relative, big 3 of 1250lbs at the time) and pursue running 100%, that I could significantly reduce that time.
good 3m (5k) for a male non runner 30 minutes. for most people in f&n (who focus their efforts on lifting, but still run) is 18-22 mins. if your a runner (and probably get hated on a lot in here) your time is going to be between 16-18 mins.
As a runner, I highly doubt people who don't run at all can pull a 18-22 min 5k
false. on a treadmill you can control your conditions, no wind, no heat, no (less) humidity not to mention it can force you to keep a steady pace throughout your run, whereas running outside anywhere (track or elsewhere) your speed is going to fluctuate.
a track is going to be a more accurate way of timing a run that say running around the neighborhood, and substantially better for your joints too
what i meant by 'non runner' is not that they dont run on a regular basis, but their focus is not on running but rather lifting. while i do agree that is a fast time for someone not focusing on running, its realistic imo.
***previous post edited for clarification***
my first 5k i had one weeks notice to train for it and had been focused on lifting for 3.5 months and ran a 19:59, now that i run xc and focus my efforts on running not lifting it is substantially lower
I was a sprinter in college. We had to run under a 20min 3 mile on a cross country course. Considering I never ran over 600m in my life, running 3 miles sucked. I think I ran 19:20. Glad I stuck to sprinting. I never ran a 4 minute mile, always wanted to. I ran a 5:03 during our fall conditioning test. You had to run under 5:30 to stay on team.
One day it will happen, just not yet.
do a time chipped 5k already! (or longer )
who'd you run for?
depending on your age 23-25 minutes is average/slow
better than that is good id say
faceman you a part of any the san diego running groups? .. any races you planning on?
debating la jolla and san diegotu ..... also a olympic triathalon in march but i need to get my swim on and aso find a suit
for me any time within the same day is pretty awesome
at least you'll admit it
if your actually getting out there and doing them
PcH what do you run?
My PR for a 5k is 19:08
Is this a secret brag thread?
I've run 15:58 for 3 miles in cross country, and 16:12 for a 5K on a track, but all of that was when I weighed 30 pounds less...
I think sub-20 would be considered a good time for guys, and sub-22 or 23 for girls.
15:48 PR in the 5k
4:34 mile in track.
im going to run a half marathon at the minimum of 8 minutes per mile
If you still have speed like that (or at least used to) you should be able to hold ~ 6:45 pace no problem depending on the course and conditions.
And as for the thread starter... your 3 mile time doesn't really "have" to be anything. There's no magic number. If running is important to you, then run more and get faster.
