    Don't you mean nobody would be able to escape?

    6'0, 180lbs - my mile PR was 4:56. It wasn't actually during the season, since I never ran the mile, so it's probably not exact. It occurred to me to try getting a sub-5-minute mile, so after around a month training (running, lol) specifically for that, along with a few laughably slow trials so that I could get my pacing down I got me a stopwatch and made it just in time. Then I puked everywhere.

    Right now I probably couldn't make it a mile walking, due to a knee injury. Even without the injury I'm probably so out of shape by this point that I'd be in the upper sixes.

    Wow, you guys like your running, dont you? Still. Nice work, hoodedmonk.

    I'm not really much of a runner, but i'm going go see how fast i can do two km's (which is a bit over a mile). I wont post it, because it'll be terrible, but i am inspired to try get my time down. Thanks, i think.

    Post your time, then you can post it again as it improves.

    okay, at least it'll make me stick to it, or forever live in shame of having a **** time. (i'm being totally serious there)

    It'll have to wait until later though, i'm at work right now.

    I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
    Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.

    A mile's about 1600m, so 2000m is a bit more than "a bit over a mile". Just so you don't compare your time directly to everyone else's.

    its only 400m... but i see your point. I'm not gonna compare, it'll make me feel woefully unfit. ;) (jks)

    i'm just interested to see what time i can get down to, i dont have a track but i assum country roads do just as well. I'll just have to measure it out.

    the last time I ran a timed mile it was 5:50-something
    In summation your argument denotes a lack of intellectual honesty on your part. It is my contention that this matter would best be solved with fisticuffs. I believe I will be victorious in this regard.

    My fastest timed-run was 6:17, slowest was 12:33. Now, it is in the 8:30s. Congrats on the time! I'm 23 and have been working back to running in the 6:30 range.
