I run cross country and the distance events for Track and Field and I also coach a cross country team.



For those of you who dont know what cross country is it is a sport where you...run lol, the races range from 5k(3.1 miles), 8k(5 miles), and 10k (6.1 miles)

I was wondering if anyone here also runs for those sports or if im the only one?

Yeah, I've been doing track for 6 years now. It's pretty good, but I'm sso out of shape. The try-outs for XCountry were this morning and I did so bad on the 2 mile. I didn't break 16. HAHA, I hope they don't kick me out for it.
And..wouldn't it make sense that a 10k is 6.2?
That's what I thought it was, but that's just me and my math lol.

I ran in cross country back in elementary school but I quit when I got to highschool because it happened at the same time as soccer, but I chose to play soccer instead.

Why would someone want to run?

We have FFR, DDR, and Guitar Hero. That's a lot of exercise there. No need for cross country.

I run indoor outdoor and cross country.

I'm mainly a sprinter. I specialize in the 400 meter dash. I'm ranked statewide with a 52.1 FAT in the open 400. I also participate in 4x400 relays, I run the 200 with a PR of 23.4 FAT. I long jump 19'6'' and run a 5k in 19:32(not a distance runner, first season of cross country)

I'm going into my senior year and I'm looking to hit a 37 FAT in the 300 during indoor, and to drop my 400 to a 50.x FAT.

I don't understand a lot of that, mostly what the hell is a FAT, but I know that those are some pretty good numbers.

I myself never ran, but played soccer. I probably could have done decent at track if I ever tried it. I'm a short distance sprinter myself. Anything under a 400 would be good for me. 400 would be pushing it for me to keep going the whole way, but I could do it, just not as well as TPS... I'd probably be the best at 200, though I prefer the 100 or whatever. No times because I never did any of it, otherwise I'd post 'em =\

Oh. BTW. I suck at sprinting. I can only jump 2' into the air above my hight onto a wall. (This tells you whether your a Long distance runner or a sprinter.)
My friend, who is both long distance AND sprinter can jump 4.5' into the air up a wall.

300m: 43.x
800m: 2:19
4x400m: 62.x
4x800m: 2:20

High Jump: 4'10"
Triple Jump: 31'10"
45m Hurdles: 0:09.0

you should do it next year then.


it keeps you motivated i guess, like i dont let myself use the computer unless i put in atleast 5 miles a day of decent running, like 5 miles in under 35 mins is good training for me right now.

Can you explain this a little more, I think I understand what you're trying to say, but I still am not quite sure. Because depending on how I am supposed to take this I might have a very high jump.

I run...but during the beginning of last year's season, I got real bad knee problems, so it's kinda hindering me from running very well.

Some of my PRs:

800m: 2:07 (as a sophomore)
1600m: 4:50 (as a sophomore)
3200m: Didn't run it
5,000m: (XC): 17:58 (as a junior)

We'll have to see how this season goes, I have barely been running this summer, and pre-season starts on monday. XD

I run cross country. I'll probably end up running track this year too, because Michigan's tennis season moved to fall.

5k PR: 17:40 (sophomore year)

I'm having some knee problems (sup MrZombie), but I'm hoping it won't end up being too much of a problem. Last year was pretty disappointing for me in terms of personal achievements, so I'm pretty motivated this year.

I'm pretty curious as to what my mile time would be like. Looks like the popular time in this thread is 4:50 :p

3.5 miles in 20 mins would be an excellent time if it weren't an estimate.

I'm pretty sure 5 miles a day is enough. Do you up the mileage during the peak of the season, though?

To Danceguy:

No it doesn't :< Fall is going to be a complete bitch because I have to dual-sport cross and tennis. Well, I probably won't put a lot of effort into tennis. Our team isn't going to be very good at all. I have a lot of conflicts with cross meets and tennis matches, and I'll be opting for cross in all but maybe one of them.

Now I have no excuse not to run track. The MHSAA is full of jerks :(
