well i ran a quarter mile today and got 2:47 is this good ?
I'm not trying to be mean or anything but it really isn't that great of a time. I know that it could definitly be dropped by quite a few seconds if you started running regularly. How often do you run or workout?
no offence but its pretty shithouse, even for an overweight out of shape person.
half mile good, 1/4 mile bad
ist what, 400m
Fit people can do that in 1min 10, 1 min 30 at worst
Depends on weight but 45 seconds is good
i run on the treadmill about 3 times a week and workout monday - saturday weights,bikeing etc.
i think i can beat that time by power walking, 1/4 mile is 400 metres right?
if you seriously can beat that time by power walking then i must have got the wrong length or im not fit i thought i was actually doing good because i was ahead of most of the pepole in the class
Seriously, that comes out to almost an eleven minute mile. When I was in high school I ran a lackluster 7:28 mile in baseball conditioning and that was FAR behind everyone else. Back then I was around 30-35 pounds overweight at 220lbs. 1/4 mile is 400m. Perhaps you have your distances wrong? Either that or you are slacking off alot...
did you walk?
wow... quarter mile times (one 400 meter lap) are normally around a minute (like other people are alluding too).
that is fucking terrible. 5 min mile pace is 1.15 for a quarter mile, and that isn
Are you sure you got that distance right???
That sounds like a slowish 800m time 1/2mile. Even if you hopped the 1/4 mile I don't reckon you could do it slower than that. I've run 400m in 57 secs before. Michael Johnson did it in 43.18!!!!! But even then I don't think he is three times faster than you.
Yeah, I remember back in like Freshman PE for highschool, we had to do the timed runs and one of them was a quarter mile time. I was terribly out of shape and ran mine in around 1:40 or so. Now I get it at about 1:10 or so I'm guessing: I'll give it a try a bit later this week.
That's too slow for a quarter mile...that'd be decent half mile time.
damn!!!! Give the guy a break already.
Under a minute isn't that unrealistic.
keep working at it you can do better
