Running a Mile

Hi all,

I have being running on and off now for 5 years, around 45 mins slowly nothing major!

Today I tried to see how fast I could run a mile and it took me 9 minutes and 26 seconds.

Is that terrible, to be honest I was going at around 65% effort as didnt want to kill myself the first thing I tried.

What type of times should i be aiming for

I'm male, 36 and 93KG

Thanks

Hi there!

Well, the timing is dependent on the fitness level of an individual. While 9:26 may be terrible for some, the timing might be great for others. The idea behind physical exercise is to develop and maintain physical health. If interested in improving physical fitness, you might gradually increase the pace and the effort to increase speed and strength to reach a sub-maximal level for optimal fitness. You might also seek the help of professional fitness trainer to pace up and channelize the work-out regime.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
