I do 1.5 miles at the rate of 6 mph. Is that weak?

You stated that 6:15 miles at 4 miles was super athletic. You emphasized the fact that 6:15 at a 4 mile pace, not a 1 mile pace, was special. My argument is that it is not super athletic, it is just athletic. Super athletes can go faster and longer. Hopefully this is simple enough to understand; if you truly knew the distribution you wouldn't have made such a ludicrous statement of disbelief. You don't have to be an athlete or bullshitting to get a good time for 4 miles. Anyway, I know you'll try deflecting these points with non sequitur and insults and such so I'll finish here.

An old joke on running.

So the argument is now what constitutes super athleticism vs. athleticism.

Okay. What the fuck?

Four 6:15 miles? Jesus.

Then there's the guys that run 10 miles 9 days per week.

Simply being able to run 4 miles in 25 minutes doesn't necessarily show that one is super athletic.
I think the average young male (without weight issues) would be able to do that with enough training, though some would take more alot training than others

Also, i bet that alot of good distance runners would score relatively low in overall athletic testing like they would use to rate NBA or NFL prospects.

Thats probably a little misleading though, my half marathon pr is only about 35 sec/mile faster than the pace i ran last night... im not super fast but i do my everyday running at closer to race pace than most people probably do because its more enjoyable/comfortable for me.

yeaaaaa..........

i assume you're using a treadmill? try to do 5 extra minutes every time, or something like that. slowly ratchet up your speed and distance.

Ran about a mile 1.5 outside, got too muggy and humid and called it a day. Took me about 10 mins..
