2 – Run For One Mile
Running for one mile is good way to measure your speed and fitness. Obviously, there are many factors to consider when measuring the time it takes to run a mile; length of leg, shortness of Achilles tendons, age and gender. For this reason, it is hard to find an accurate standard of what you should be achieving. Generally though, as long as you can run continuously for a mile without stopping, and can complete a mile in under nine minutes, you can consider your speed to at an acceptable level. If you are clocking in times of below 7 minutes, your speed level is very good, and anything below 5 minutes is considered world-class.
