Is an 8 minute mile considered slow?

Average, I guess.

>>35684592
Is it faster than yesterday? Cause that's the real gauge.
>>
>>35684592
The average is 15 mins per mile

Depends on who you're comparing it to.

>fat Tina from accounting
8 minutes is lightning quick

>moderately fit crossfit faggot
8 minutes is probably on the slower end

>college athlete for any sport that requires substantial running
8 minutes isn't even trying
>>
>>35684650

>>
>>35684664

Anyone here love running, but absolutely hate doing it uphill?

Fuck that shit is torture for me.

It really depends on the weather 2 weeks ago I ran a 6:24 mile it was 70 degrees, today I ran a 8:57 mile it was 17 degrees. As long as you keep getting better that's all that counts
>>
If you're 21, yes. If you're 40, no.

Is an 8 hour arm considered big?

It depends on the distance a 5 mile run at 8min miles isn't quite worth bragging about but would take some doing, but 8 mins for one mile isn't really fast.

If your talking general fitness then really 5:45-6 minutes flat for one mile would be pretty fit.

But obviously there are runners that would do it in 4 minutes easy. So it really depends

If you're a middle school girl then 8 minutes isn't too bad

>>35684822
No, in fact I hate running UNLESS it's uphill. I do all my running on a treadmill so I can run uphill the whole time.

Most "elite" crosshiters have absolute garbage run times. In the range of 8 min miles.
