Nah dude,a well conditioned person does it in under 6 minutes.Most people I know do it in well over 6.
Aim for 6 buddy.

it depends on the condition youre in, your size and your build to really know what you should shoot for. the best thing you can do is time yourself and record until youve ran the mile enough times to get a feel for how much you can push yourself during the run, then set a goal for yourself.

my best mile was about 5:05, but i had been running for a long time before i got to that. also i was either training for a 3 mile run or for sprinting distances, so i never really trained specifically for the mile.

I ran 5:12 but i never liked the mile i am more for pace and longer distance or sprints but 6 minutes is a good target.

yeah, i run about 4 miles per day and my first mile is just over 6 minutes, the rest take a but longer although i do 2 of the miles of stairs. So what im trying to say is shoot for 6 minutes or so.

i'm well conditioned for my age and i can run a mile in 6: 18. i don't really focus on the mile until now and in the past month and a half i have built my time to lessen it by atleast 2 minutes.

Our coach pushes his heavyweights to run a seven minute mile, and to run three of them. But that's a big factor in your time, too -- how many miles are you running? I can probably manage a mile in between 6 and 7 minutes, but I can't run four miles in 28 minutes, right?

i used to be able to run miles in 4 and a half minutes when i was about 12-13. I was one of the best in scotland at the time for middle distance running.

As everyone noted, 6 mins is a good target to start with.
devide your stamina for the mile, for example run the first quarter a little fast, then the second and third a bit slower and the last one with all you'v got.

Devide your capabilities with what you can handle and feel good with..

If you can't run a 5 mile you must have a heart problem. The average out of shape couch potato with a knee condition runs a 4:20. The world record being 1:30 of course.



In all seriousness, the average guy runs an 8 minute mile. 6 minutes is the equivalent to a 300 lb benchpress. In other words, its as far as a normal person at the average weight can realistically hope to achieve with hard work.

A 6 minute mile is very good. I doubt many top ten heavyweights can run it in that time.

Some people have stort legs which makes them take longer to run it, and asmaha(sp?) could effect the results.

I was just about to say that...I had to run 5 miles a day for 2 months after completing a season of track to be able to run a 6 minute mile...I think 8 minutes is good and you should be in around 9-10 minutes a mile if you are running multiple miles...

Why? What's up with prime time? I know it cost a grip at first but you would know better than me since you train there.

A profesional boxer is expected to run a mile in 6 minutes.
So 7 minutes is a very good target, you'll have to be fit even to do that!

An average person should run it in 8 to 10 minutes, not under 6. A 5 minute mile is insane.

Lightheavyweight and above a 9-10 minute mile is fine if your in shape and if its the begining of your camp 11-12 minutes even it use to take Joe Fraizer 1 hour to do five miles and he never had a stamina problem...

8:30 is a good start.

a little over 4 min is what some track people at college run.

If I recall correctly, Muhammad Ali would run six miles in an hour as part of his training. That's 6 ten minute miles for a 210-220 pound man. He never had any problem with his stamina with that roadwork routine. Boxers who are running 4-5 minute miles every day, in addition to all the other taxing work they do in the gym, will soon find themselves with painful injuries. You aren't a track athlete so don't train like one. A 6 or 7 minute mile is very good for a smaller man if you are running several of them in a row.

You need to work on your cardio my friend. Start off slow. Just being able to run a mile, or a few of them, will make you feel better. Don't worry about running hard, just keep going.

A good time for a boxer? i would say 6 minutes is perfectly fine for one mile alone in fact. When you are doing consecutive miles then perhaps 7 or 8 minutes is also ok, for a boxer this is...

I used to be able to do a mile in 6 minutes but i reckon i could get it under 5 or maybe 5:10 or something now....

If dudes that you know are doing it at almost 4 minute mile pace then they are very good athletes. Especially when you consider that a sub 4 minute mile has only been achieved in the past 50 years... Steve O'vet might have been the first to achieve it. If not him then Sebastian Coe perhaps.... :)

These times are insane. You can't go by whats on the internet. Everyone is Ten foot tall and bullletproof here. I've been in the army 6 years. We get graded on our Physical Training. For my age 22-27. You have to run two miles between 13 minutes and 16 minutes and 36 seconds. 13 being a 100 and 16 being 60. When we run 4 miles its at a 7-9 minute mile pace. You have to be able to run 4 miles in 36 minutes. When I joined you have to run one mile in 9 minutes. You can run one mile in about 7 minutes pretty easy just if you want to run a longer distance just pace yourself. But if you want to run for stamina Sprint as far as you can then walk and catch your breath, then sprint again a few days and week this also helps your speed greatly. Then run a few miles on other days. Your legs recover fast so you can run everyday if you wanted.

Some boxers think if they compare themselves to others or some mystical concepts of training, it will make them better. Most Boxers today dont train that well, running, sparing, diet, sleep, the list goes on.I cant tell you how many Champs I know and have trained with that live 40% at the gym and the rest chasing women,drinking,( getting kicked out of bars ) running around living the high life and act like they are gods gift to the boxing society. But in defense of some of the champs I trained with like Louie Espinoza. Now he was a true Champ. And this man was a Track star when it came to running. Exellent runner and thats what made him so good in the gym.
