Lol, I saw your name on my notifications and I’m like “Fay has no business commenting on this question, let’s just see what she has to say” lmfao
Lmao, i don't care I'll always comment on your workout posts. Its my favorite thing to do
One of these days, I’ll see a serious comment like “PLM PLM!! I ran 100 meters in 11 seconds, I actually did it!!” I’ll be like 😟🤯☠️
Nah you'd be like "prove it" and them I'd be like "watch🏃💨" "there 😤"
I’ll be like “Look at those sexy smooth Somali legs running, hot damn.” I wouldn’t even care about your time, I’d be entranced by the 8th Wonder of the World: Fay’s Legs
Was that 12.5 with formal training and consistent sprints and long runs? Or was it without any formal training, technique training, etc.
It was the summer before my senior year. I had been running track and cross country for a few years. Us distance guys would periodically run sprints at practice.
Yeah, it was my first time running 100 meters, and I barely run. What was the longest distance you’ve ran?
Back then I did 10 miles once, and 8 miles (3 times in one day) regularly. It’s not the same as running, but in the Corps I did forced marches as far as 17 miles.
How heavy was the extra load you were carrying on these marches?
Maybe like 110-115 If I had a radio. Plus either my M-16 or M-4.
What was your MOS?
I was in comm, field wireman.
Oh, that’s cool. Thanks for your service
You’re welcome man.
It would take me way longer.
My average is more around the 12 second mark
Never timed myself but I ain't nowhere close to that time. Good luck and keep up the good work.

100 meters in 4 minutes? 🤔
How fast can you sprint the 100 m? I did say my average was 12, with my absolute lowest being around low to mid 11.
either that, or the 11-12 seconds is more like 11.6-11.9. in high school, i ran a 10.7/10.8. most top high school 100m runners in the country will run mid to low 10's. and unless you ran competitively in college, most people cap off in high school sprinting wise. to run 11-12's repeatedly, you either:a- only ran at most 3 timesb- had inaccurate timingc- had a stupid amount of rest in betweend- can consistently run sub 11 100m'smind you, i also coached and/or assistant coached sprints, hurdles, and jumps from college down to rec level (7-14) and ran nationally for 10 years. and i stay relatively in shape and can barely cap 12 in the few times i've run it since i stopped running. just like i ran a 50 400 and can't cap off a sub 55 1x... or how i was a 22' long jumper and i doubt i can break 20' or a 6' high jump. and this is all when i was still working out with the athletes i coached.
Well, this was my first time running 100 meters, and I did 8 intervals, with as much rest as needed to complete each interval in the same time or with little change. Fastest was around 11 and the rest were averaged at around 12. I didn’t run in high school or middle school. And honestly don’t run consistently. Just curious what are some things you recommend, training wise, to help you improve your 100?
If you did 8, it’s virtually impossible to keep that pace unless you were an elite runner, have stupid stamina or took a 7 minute gap or 300m walk in between each run. That’s about the same as doing 8 200s at a 26/27s pace consistently. The 1st 3-4 are fine, but you’d be hard pressed to run sub 30 5-8th, even at a 5 minute rest. And that’s if you’re running in a group. Running alone makes you generally run slower if you aren’t trained.I don't know, I’ve never seen you run.
I didn’t count the exact minutes in between intervals, but I did take as long as I felt was necessary to be able to do the next interval at about the same pace. My fastest interval was actually on the 4th or 5th, that’s when I did around 11. My closest was the very last interval. I did do some active recovery walking in between intervals, but the times vary. I would take shorter breaks in the middle of the intervals than when I would start and still maintain around the same speed.
Pretty sure my heart would cave though. Angina.
