How fast can you run a mile??
Is running a mile outside easier/harder than running a mile on a treadmill??
I ran a mile on a treadmill in 10:02 and my uncle said it doesn't count because it was on a treadmill and not outside. Isn't a mile a mile?
Either way I'm f**king proud.

ROFL.. i don't think I could run a straight mile without stopping! So good for you! A mile is still a mile, tread mill or not.

It does count lol your uncle is silly. Running outside can be harder depending on the weather and terrain.

I've only gotten to just under 10 min, and I'm fairly new to running.
As for difficulty, when you're running outside it's different because it's hard to keep an exact pace like on a treadmill, plus you have elevation changes, where part of your run could be uphill, which will slow you.



But, running on a treadmill isn't vastly different. Pending on the circumstances, you could even end up with a faster mile outside.

He meant doesn't count as a real workout because it was a treadmill? Idk lol
I haven't ran a mile since 7th grade! I'm trying to lose weight and just be healthy so doing that felt amazing! I did have to slow my pace down for a couple minutes in the middle.

Yeah I thought about the diff terrains and what not but I guess to me a mile is a mile. It's too effing hot to run outside around here lol.

I think he said it didn't count bc running inside and running outside are SO different, but you're right, a mile is a mile! Go girl!! :)

I run a mile in 8 minutes on a treadmill.



And a little under 10 minutes outside.



It is easier on a treadmill :D
