Men at the gym typically have their treadmill set to about 7 miles per hour, or 8:30 minutes per mile. They can probably run faster if they try, maybe 8.5 miles per hour if they pushed it. Very few gymrats can run 9 miles per hour, 10 miles per hour is much harder.
The gymrats are usually in better shape than average couch potato: the average man probably can't run a mile at all, or possibly an 11-12 minute mile.
Olympic runners can do < 4:00 minute miles. Champion marathon runners do 4:45 minute miles. A very good, but not professional, marathon runner can do a mile in 5-6 minutes. A good time for a recreational runner in a marathon is 4 hours, which is 9+ minute miles.
30% of the US is obese (30+ pounds overweight) . 200,000+ people a year are so overweight that they have surgery to shrink their stomachs. Like those people on "The Biggest Loser", almost none of them can run a mile. Walking a mile takes 20-30 minutes. Some people can't even do that.
don't know exactly, but i would say alot. A good amount of people could walk it in this
*I'm a runner, and I can't even walk a 10 minute mile. For the average casual runner, I think maybe 1/2 could run a ten minute mile.
Realistically...very few people could run an entire mile without stopping or at least slowing down without previous training. I agree with answer number "2". I am a casual/beginning runner also and have been training for about 2 weeks now. Below is my latest average for a more realistic idea. I am 6'3" 205 pounds, don't smoke, and the worst thing that has ever happened to me medically was a bloody nose.
Day 12...34 Minutes...Speed 4.41 MPH...0.20 MPH Speed increase from yesterday.
This average is over a distance of 2.5 miles with one fairly small hill I would call it more like a knoll.
---- I run cross-country, and with a month training, I am running 4 miles without walking. Thursday, August 26, 2010, we did a time-trail for 5k, 3.1 miles. We have one really big hill that lasts about 15 seconds, and another small, but really steep hill at around 3/4 mile. I got 29 minutes exactly on that time trial, and didn't walk at all. Needless to say, 10 minute mile isn't that hard. I finished my first 2 miles in 17 minutes. By the end of the season, I am hoping to finish the 5k in around 23 minutes.
If the average male could run a mile in 6 minutes, that would put the speed at 10 MPH.
5 minutes, 12 MPH
4 minutes, 14 MPH and so on
Well, at our police academy we require men in the age range of 20 to average about 8-10 minutes a mile.
For a normal non athlete, seven minutes is OK. 6 minutes is great. 5 minutes is fantastic. But wait to hear from others.
