In school we would have 3 hr practices and then have to run 2 miles in under 12 minutes, if we didnt, we would have to do 100 stadiums. Thank god I was able to do it, I was in the best shape of my life.
Im pretty much a slug now
I’m with you Marc. I have bad knees so running is pretty much over for me now, but even if it wasn’t I would have a hard time running for hours as I just don’t have the desire anymore. Funny, we had a similar test when I played baseball in college. We had double days before spring ball and we had to run a 6 min mile every day before practice. Those that couldn’t do it had to run 5 more miles. I made it in 6 mins every time for 4 years. Now I probably couldn’t make it in 12.
