How many miles for

Post by FLscr007 » 27 Aug 2006, 17:17

im not sure if this belongs here, and im sorry if it doesnt.

but i was just wondering, what kind of shape do you have to be in to play in a high school varsity game. I mean how many miles would be sufficient to know that you are physically fit enough. I can run one mile non stop and i kno thats not good compared to all the all stars here :wink: . How many miles do you think is "physically fit"?

would you have to run that non stop to kno your in shape, or can you do a mixture of sprints, walking, and joging?

6 7-minute miles in a row? I doubt anyone on my Varsity team could do that...that's pretty intense. Are you sure you didn't mean 48 minutes?

Thats what my team did, but not my highschool team, I didnt try out for that, but he asked "I mean how many miles would be sufficient to know that you are physically fit enough." and if you can do that then your are physically fit.

I agree with that standard. Although most high school varsity players can't maintain that pace for that long, to be properly prepared for an 80-90 minute game you should be able to do that.

I could maintain that pace for about 2 miles, but I'm sure that by next year when I'm actually ON Varsity (Damn coach...) I'll be able to do it.

my dad is a highschool coach and after try outs he makes his team run a lot and they run every practice until all of them can do 2 miles in 12 minutes
