Last weekend, I ran my first 10k in 55 minutes. And THAT took a LOT of training!

Back when I jogged, I did a mile in 6.5 minutes. It wasn't the fastest time, but I was able to pace myself and keep it going for miles...at 6.5 minutes a mile. (prior military--2 miles run in 13 minutes) The most I've ever jogged was 5 miles in just over 30 minutes. If I could have kept that pace for an hour then I could have jogged just over 9 miles. Key words are "if I could have kept that pace!"

I used to run 6 miles in about 48-50 min regularly.
I always stopped then so not sure how much I could have done in 60 min.
I stopped doing it though and now only run 3-4 miles b/c it was making me too skinny and eating into my muscle. I want to be buff not skinny!!

Prior to a knee injury I ran almost every day. I was a long distance runner with my low days being 5 to 6 miles and at least one 10 to 15 mile run week. I never was the speed driven runner; just a steady 7 to 8 min mile was a good pace, and sometime slower. I lived in a flat coastal area for much of that time and the change to hills changed that speed, and distance. I still miss it, and now looking at my scheduled knee surgery tomorrows I am wondering if I will be once again pounding the pavement or if I am destined to get my aerobic high from the bikes.
For me there is nothing I have found which cuts the stress of life, or gives a natural aerobic high as well as running. I have tried the bike and swimming till I thought I would have gills. Good for the knees, just requires your attention to the attention to traffic, or form and never lets your mind free spool like running.

I ran a mile and a half in about 10 1/2 minutes when I was in school. I walk three miles an hour. If I picked up the pace, I should be able to at least double that. But I've never really tried to test my stamina for running, so who knows? I might only make 20 minutes of jogging before I need to switch to walking.

Usually every friday me and 2 of my buds do a pt with about 3 miles of running 125 pushups, 125 situps, 20 pullups. Run 1.5, drop to the ground and push em out, then the other 1.5 and that's about an hour, with hydration breaks and bsing, etc. On a tread I remember running maybe 4 miles in a half hour but a tread is different then pavement. On a timed mile I ran about 7 minutes flat, but I can maintain roughly 7.30 min/mile for an hour if I'm feeling good and have a good enthusiastic stride. I'm not necessarily a runner and have been trying to build up my endurance again lately, been in a bit of a slump on the runs and just trying to add weight to my frame of late.

Was that plural? The only time I run is if a bear is chasing me

Chessie, you're not slow. I'm an 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 minute mile. Best was 6.5 miles in 50 minutes. Haven't gotten the mental strength to do an hour- also worried about the joints.
