Obviously it is going to be different for everybody, based on their shape and body size, heart, etc. I know that a competitive running time shouldn't be a goal in MMA but what are some respectable running times for a fighter? Do you know the times of any pros? I can currently run 1 mile in between 7-8 minutes, my 5k is around 25, and 10k is around 50. I know "blah blah blah, you should be doing sprints, long distance won't help " I read the FAQ, I know about the energy systems and the MMA's Modality is very intense and middle-long distance running is not, and you need to be more explosive, anaerobic exercises as opposed to a marathon , aerobic stimulation, but I have noticed guys who have balanced energy systems tend to be the most successful. Anyways, what are your times , and what are good times to aim for. I also notice that guys with good aerobic bases recover faster.
