Urban Run

by Andy
(Leeds, UK)



I ran about 2 miles in my run. I live in the city so I ran through the park on a sunny and warm day, dry under foot.

I like to run along a path through the grass and along the riverbank, then along a few minor roads along the pavement.

The change in terrain can make it somewhat more difficult to maintain an even pace, but also makes it more interesting. I did manage to keep it pretty much the same.

I had to stop a few times for traffic, pedestrians and the like, and junctions, so the quieter the road the better to maintain the pace.

All in all, a slow run for me as I do run a lot and usually do a greater distance, I blame it on the interference.

I find a walkman helps too. A great run though, felt really energized afterwards!

I am 77 years young. I ran (last week)1,930 metres in 12 minutes.
In miles that is 1.93/1.609 = 1.199 miles.

My goal is 2400 metres (1.5 miles)in 12 minutes)

Not bad for a youngster, huh?

It was not so hard.

by Vena

I’m a 23-year-old female and for my 12 minutes I ran 2,160 meters.

I am doing average. I am not a real fast runner and I do get tired easily. I’ve never been very active in sports.

However, I ran at a fairly steady speed, but not too fast. I was running in the park on pavement with my friends.

It wasn’t real hot like the 80’s of last week, and it was 6 pm.
I believe that the weather conditions made it much easier for me.

However, I do plan to start running everyday in the park and run the test again, to see if there will be any improvement.

I am not content with my results; I know I can do better!

Wish me luck!
Bye, Vena

On the very pleasant day(not very sunny), I have run about 2500 to 2600 meters on very dry field in my school in which I studied. I am basically not an athlete.

I am but 19 years of age, and average speed by your chart. I will try more next time.

On my way to a 38:40 5-mile run

by Don
(San diego, California)



-I ran 1.45 miles today (I'm 48) in a 12-minute cooper fitness test (on a treadmill).

When I was 26, I ran 5 miles in 38:40. My morning rest pulse now is 54. I can still stand to lose another 40 pounds. (I weigh 220)

Then I'm hoping to get back to my grad-school times in the 5-mile run.
