    There was a General who said like 70% of people who tried to get into the US military couldn't do a proper 1.5 miles run. Something like that.

      He's probably correct.
      I'm 30s and it amazes me I can run further than most 20 year olds in a better time because of the lack of fitness across the general population. I might be an outlier but even gyms I've been to 80% of the membership are fat, go for a month or two and then quit.

        I'm also 30 and I'm flabbergasted by the fact that most 20 years old have less energy than what I have. And I look younger than some of them. It's nuts.

        To be fair, at the age of 25 i'm way fitter than i was at 20. In my late teens and early 20's i was focused more on partying and only mildly getting into fitness. After so many years, it's only natural to have progressed. I'd say 20 is the starting point for most people if they did not compete/participate in sports at a younger age and I hope that when i'm 30, i'll be fitter than i am now.

      When I joined it took me 17 minutes to run mile. By the time I hit my first PT test, I did 2 miles in 12 minutes and 20 seconds. Sometimes the Army is what gets you up to speed.

        The American army lets people with such marks in?!

          They did during the war. Fit guys went into the combat jobs and there was a massive shortage of guys to pump gas and sit at desks, so they started letting fatties in to do the less physically strenuous jobs.

          Nowadays, if you can't pass a basic fitness test, they won't even let you try to enlist.

          You have a 25% chance of having a 4ft tall obese black girl or a dude in a wig in charge of your life in the Army these days, it's pretty grim.

          I should clarify. I did the 17 and got to 14 for the two mile before they let me in.

        17 minutes? How? When I was in grade school I walked with my friends on the mile and took less time than that.

    Depends on what your definition of "out of breath"
    Slightly winded, breathing heavily or "holy fuck I can't function"?

    An average untrained person? Probably less than 1km if we’re talking about actually running

    You need to say what you consider running, the place too, uphill, downhill, flat, sand, woods, street, hot, cold, warmed up or not. I would probably say that without a training, no more than 1 km.

    Pretty much anyone would be 'out of breath' if you started talking to them after they'd just run a km, regardless of fitness level. Unless by run you mean gentle jog

    there's jogging, sprinting and as fast as possible running for your life runs. Which is it?
    I doubt 90% of the population can sprint for 1km.

    I think the minimum standard for a 1km run would be 5 minutes. And using that standard 99% of the population would be fucked after a 1km run

    Depends how fast, even the best runners can be out of breath after 400m, just their time will be fast.

    I have a resting heart rate of 50 and I can't run very far. Maybe I can do a mile but it won't be fun. Fuck running why grind down your knees for something so unpleasant?

      My knees were creaky immobile painful pieces of shit when I sat at a desk all day, running saved them.

      Running actually made my knees feel better. God didnt give us bodies so that we wouldnt use them.

    What do mean by out of breath?
    As in, you have to stop running and sit down to get your shit together?

    Because I usually feel like shit after 200m of running but I can continue at a steady pace for as long as I want. I usually run 3km for my cardio.

      that's just a normal mid week run

    In winter and peak summer I use the curved treadmill 3-4x a week at my gym so I'm in the cardio area and see a lot of people run. It's pretty noteworthy when someone can run for more than 10 minutes at a stretch.

    I'd say being able to run 2km without stopping puts you at least a standard deviation above even gymgoers.

    Zero. Have you seen the average? They're making me look good and I'm a 40 year old that is just barely in the health range BMI for my height.

    Why am I so unmotivated from running? I was running 30 miles a week at my peak, now I’m struggling to force myself to run even 2 miles a day. I’m probably gonna top out at like 12 miles this week.

    My theory is that it’s because I stopped improving. I’m way faster than when I started a year ago, but after running a half marathon in June, I’ve gotten kinda bored of it. It started out with a mile a day, then 1.5, then 2, etc. and I plateaued at 4 miles a day. Running 5 a day just isn’t realistic, the more miles you add the more time it takes away from everything else in your life. I just need to get myself to a place where I’m comfortable with that.

      Pic related, today’s run. Wanted to go to 3 miles at least, gave up at 2.19 because it got dark and I was tired and couldn’t be bothered.

        If you're just starting slow your pace down, you'll be able to go a lot longer. 8 min mile is pretty fast for your first time

      imo because you stopped caring about improving. my motivation to improve and push myself to the edge of my potential drives me to blast my max effort in runs and other workouts. it gives me butterflies just before I am starting a new run everytime. if I could manage a full marathon I wouldnt stop there, I would keep pushing more, Im not comparing myself to others or trying to achieve a numeric goal but trying to reach my absolute top. maybe I am autistic in my thinking but just wrote in in case it hits close home and got some inspiration for you somehow

    Is running non stop for 30 mins an achievable goal?

      Definitely. More than achievable. There are people who run 8 hours at a time.

        Good to know, today I've ran for 19 mins and I was worried if I was doing something wrong, since I started to feel a pain in my chest after I finished.

          Just run slower. And don't drink energy drinks before you run. You don't even need to bother with a run-walk program if you can run for more than a few minutes, you can actually do it already.

          Don't run alone, use a friend. Talk to him while running. If you can't talk, you are too fast.
          This will pace you properly.

      I went from being unable to run for 2 minutes straight to running a 10k at a decent beginner pace (5:30/km) in about 3 months, which is 55 minutes of sustained running at that pace. Longest runs were slightly over 10 miles around that time. Just look up couch to 5k. Starts off real easy with run-walk intervals, and you'll be surprised how quickly you can ramp up.

    I can get a 30 minute 5k. It's not very good I know. But it's still probably above average which is sad.
    If I really pushed hard I could probably get around 25.

    I run out of breath at max 1km but I will keep going till I collapse no problem. (Never have collapsed, usually stop at around 10-15 due to boredom)

      Run slower, retard. Your pace will improve if you run more slowly for longer.

      Just don't take water. You 100% don't need it unless you live in some desert hellhole in which case I dunno.

    depends how fast you run and where your aerobic/lactate threshold is
    I can run 10k in 50 minutes without being out of breath, or i can run 5k in 20 minutes and be absolutely fucking dead
