Haven't timed my one mile in years. I just started running again recently and ran my first 5K last week. With all these five minute milers I'm too ashamed to post my time

...but I'll just assume I can run in the neighborhood of an 8:30 mile

Gotta run 4x1500 tomorrow, so I guess I'll have a good mile time (will record with Endomondo).

My best was probably just under 7. I hated running the mile. Kudos to those who are sub 6 let alone the sub 5's.

Now I know what it feels like to be the guy on the outside looking in of those "What's your vert" and "Can you dunk" threads. I'm seeing all these sub 6 minute times and I almost feel like it'd be offensive to share mine.

I know this will come out as being unrealistic and unlikely, but I swear I'm actually relatively fast in comparison to most people my age (28). While playing basketball, I'm usually able to play at a high and quick level for an extended period of time. I have a friend who played pro baseball for a while who'd often lose energy on the floor well before I did. Yet, when that same friend and I got together to run a mile or a few outside, that guy would literally be running circles around me. He'd distance himself, then he'd double back, circle me, then go forward again. There's just something about continuous distance running than feels so torturous, even in comparison to any type of sprinting I'm doing on the basketball court.

Anyway, I informally timed myself in a mile trot today. I finished in just around 7 minutes on the dot. It was actually a lot better than I thought it'd be, considering I haven't been able to run a ton lately due to a small injury. I'm actually kind of proud of it.

Haha definitely over 7 minute mark. I think my best ever was 6:30. I've always been more of a sprinter (albeit not a good one) since I used to do okay in school. That was back in Pakistan though. I have no clue what my times were, but I was definitely a better sprinter than a mile runner.
