How long does it take you to jog 1 mile? It takes me 9 mins, with average speed of 6.7 mph in 31 mins with 400 calories. Is this considered average for a male 26 5'8 140lbs? I never did it this fast, I always take my time just to lose certain amount of calories.

How fast must I be running in order to get a good result?

Exactly what do you consider good results? What are you trying to accomplish?

JMHO, but that is pretty slow for a non-overweight 26 year old male. I am 49, about to turn 50, female, 5'3 123 lbs and my normally training pace is less than 7:30 per mile sustained over 8+ miles. My fastest mile, if I push myself has been just over 6:00.

As your body adapts to running, you will need to push yourself harder in order to see results.

I am always within the 6-7 minute mark when I run a mile for time. Usually, I just do 5k but every now and then I do a mile just to check my time.

I haven't tried to do it for speed for some time, so I don't know. I'm sure I could do it in 9 minutes or less if I really tried.

Okay, I tried harder today, and I got 1 mile in 8.45 mins. I won't do try again for a long time.

You are asking for a 1 mile time, but you say you ran for 31 minutes. So are you asking for a good pace for a 30 minute run or just 1 mile all out? They are vastly different. I could run a mile in about 5:40-5:50, but my pace for 30 minutes on a casual run is usually 7:30, and in a fast run 6:45.

9 minutes is ok for a beginner running at a casual pace for 30 minutes.

I am a slow runner but I get a great workout. I currently run 8-10 miles 4x per week. I average a ten minute mile. I am 50 years old, 5'11" and weigh 150 pounds.

I am not not athletic but I don't care about that. I love running and plan to run a marathon next year because it sounds like a lot of fun.

Every other day, I do a 7:20 mile when doing my RAMPS intervals. My fastest is 6 minutes even. I am male, 5'10", weight is 156 lbs, and am 38 yrs old.

When I was a competitive runner: 6:40-7:00 minutes (but I wasn't a miler. I ran the 400 and 800 meters. They timed everybody on the mile run in my high school track team).

Nowadays (fitness jogger now): 9-10 minutes
