    Does anyone here run track? I do! I think it's a lot of fun!! Except this year I'm not going out, my legs are being weird. I do long distance, everyone I know are sprinters, and I was just wondering, anyone out there do track?

    I get around 7 minutes. I don't think I'm that great though. I really want to go out, but my legs are stupid and hurt too much!! I know a 4 minute mile is possible, there was a kid at my school who was close to it.

    I run at school every Tuesday and Thursday. We do laps on Tuesday and relays on Thursday. I prefer the relays. I don't like running laps.

    I hate running laps, it seems pointless to run in circles 20 times...

    thought i would revive this since the end of the season for people is coming up and a lot of things seem to go on around around now.

    does anyone on here wear spikes?? i borrowed my friend's brother's spikes today b/c we have like 2 (actually 1 after today) meets left and i kind of need them to get my time down for my relay(we have a chance of qualifying for state) but man!!! i have never used spikes before and oh man they sure do a number on your ankles!! afterwards i could barely walk, it was painful!! do they hurt for anyone else or am i just weird?? :)

    Spikes can be hard to get used too...my coach recommended to us to walk around our house in them, without the spikes in to get used to them.

    I also run long distances, I prefer the 3000m...but I actually prefer Cross Country a whole lot more..theres nothign like racing up hill

    edit: a 4.00 minute mile is quite possible. The top male high schoolers usually are close to it

    running is sooooo much fun! I like sprinting more than long distance.

    and im soooo freakin mad at gymnastics we used to be able to run cause there are these trails right next to my gym, but then the "special" group went running and some girl wore sandels (which my coach told her not too!) and so she got blisters and so her mom complained to our (very very evil) head coach, and now we cant run anymore :mad:
