I wasn't sure of the best place to post this, but I figured this forum would be the best catch-all for everyone on the site.
I'm curious as to everyone's average mile time and their fastest (recent) mile time. This isn't confined to just the runners on the board, and it'd be pretty interesting to see what times the various training styles around here produce. It'd probably be easiest to compare if everybody included the info below. Times should be from a track (or comparable surface), and not a treadmill. I just ran 6:06 on a track today as part of my rehab from ACL reconstruction (5 months out). I could NOT have kept that pace up for longer than that, however.
Height: 6' 4"
Weight: ~200 lbs.
Average mile: 6:20 based on the past month
Fastest mile: 6:06 (today, Jan. 4, 2011)
Background: Don't consider myself a powerlifter or bodybuilder, but I've been lifting for over six years now. I lift 3-4 times per week depending on the program, focusing mainly on squats, DL, bench press and pullups with the occasional olympic lift thrown in for periods. Outside of lifting, I play a lot of basketball. Also, I'm 5 months removed from an ACL reconstruction. I have torn ACLs in both knees. Was a high school athlete - wrestled and played baseball.
