What is your fastest time running either outside or treadmill for only 1 mile? At what age do people start slowly down in speed? I'm 28. 6:48 on treadmill today for 1 mile, I wouldn't be able to continue this speed since it was my fastest, I'm sure I can get a faster time if I try harder, at least 6:30.

What I'm about to say my offend those here that are "jocks" but it's better to complete the mile than it is to worry about how long it took you to finish it.

The body needs movement so any movement will be beneifcial to all who at least walk the mile (or more as they are able).

Its being a couch potato that's the killer.

About 5:10 for a split in a trail 5K.

Men start slowing down at about 25. But it doesn't actually get close to a second per mile till about 35.
"Masters" i.e. when you can avoid whippersnappers, start at 35 for men and women. The WR for the 5K is 12:37 (a 22 year old), for 35-44 year old men, it's 12:54.

5:56 in college. Never was really into running. Jogged for exercise in college. The timed run was for a weightlifting class believe it or not.

My fastest mile is 6:10. I have consistently improved my speed, but I'm in the military and I run often.

You must be a bunch of regular distance runners!

In my HS running career I was a sprinter and jumper. I never broke 7:10. But then again I was never out to run a quick mile, I'll never know my true potential! During regular workouts, I think I'd stick to around an 8 minute mile since it wasn't part of my training.

I ran a 5:12 mile when I ran track as a middle-distance runner for the University of Oregon back in the early 90s.

Hence my Screen Name......LOL
