i ran a 6:10 and felt completely fine after. (no panting or tiredness) but that was after a week or so of intense cardio preperation so i guess thats why.
also, we had to do a 1.5 mile run on a treadmill for school and i got 8:20.

i honestly think that any soccer player can be a good mile runner, if they put the effort in and train for such a race. after two years of track i got my mile time to 4:47, and without soccer it wouldn't be even close to that, so 1) soccer players have good mile times, and 2) if you wanna get endurance, join the track or cross country team at your school (if your in high school, of course)

Exactly what I did the year I was an exchange student. Most kids that ran cross country and long distance in track couldn't believe how I had such good times for the mile and the 800meters. In regionals I ran the best time of the school in the 4x800 race.. All thanks to the staimina that football gave me....2.06 was the time, and yeah I recommend this to most people. I was in club soccer too so I couldn't go to all the practices but it still was worth it! Team dinners 8-9 mile runs around town, running up hills and seeing the city from up top, on thursdays we would play games that involved stamina and heart rate. It was all really fun!

yeah seriously, like i would recommend track or cross country to anyone. my track coach hates soccer players (and lax players) that don't run either, because he knows that most of them have great stamina. the only problem is that sometimes it physically drains you, like right now i have cross country in the morning, weights during 7th period, and soccer at night, and with homework i feel like sh*t every night, but that's the only downside.

Matee I'm proud of you..... I was the same personnn...... Weights in 0 period, school 7-2, track, so long distance at 3-5 .. then club soccer....

Yes your tired, but at the end of the day, you lie in bed, with a smile of satisdaction that says "damnnn I made the most of this day".... I would choose that 10 times before having a day where I get home and just watch tv or play video games.....

you should still aim to get a 6 minute mile on a track. treadmills are alot easier to get a lower mile time. i got 8:20 for 1.5 miles on a treadmill but on a track i'd probably take quite a bit longer.
