  • Is 19 mph fast enough to outrun someone sprinting?

    Best answer: "Is 19 mph fast enough to outrun someone sprinting?" Only if they are slow. The fastest sprinters can go over 25 miles an hour. I may still be able, at 67, go 19 miles an hour.

    Best answer: "Is 19 mph fast enough to outrun someone sprinting?"

    Only if they are slow. The fastest sprinters can go over 25 miles an hour.

    I may still be able, at 67, go 19 miles an hour.

    "However, my question is if I were in a situation where I got chased by an angry guy/girl, would 19 mph be fast enough to outrun a person?"

    Perhaps, lots of people are slow and it depends on your lead at the start. I cannot sustain that sort of speed for long and even when I was younger more a few hundred yards would have been my limit.

    "Also, it drivinh at full speed bad for the motor?"

    Depends on the cooling and of course it will wear out the motor faster. IF it is brushless motor that will not be as much of an issue.

    "Will it wear my scooter out prematurely?"

    The battery will likely die from aging first. It also depends on your weight, the amount of dust it picks up, water, maintenance and and how well it was built.

  • Should I do track & field even if I’m not a good runner?

    I’m a freshman and I want to do track & field for my high school this year, however I’m afraid I’m going to lag behind the rest of the team. I ran a 8 minute 30 second mile and I think that is not very good. Should I still try it? Am I going to be kicked off the team?

  • Are lower back aches after a run normal?

    I get it, running is a high impact sport that may cause your lower back to become sore but, is it normal to happen after every run? I could just be doing a light jogging warm up or a few sprints and my lower back will ache (usually at night when I'm laying down). Even on days when I don't run, i can still... show more
    I get it, running is a high impact sport that may cause your lower back to become sore but, is it normal to happen after every run? I could just be doing a light jogging warm up or a few sprints and my lower back will ache (usually at night when I'm laying down). Even on days when I don't run, i can still feel small aches in my back at night. It is bearable but, is it normal for these aches to occur as much as they do? Even when i do little to no running?

  • Could I win a Half Marathon if I have already been consistently been running for 3 years with 14 percent body fat?

    Best answer: A half marathon is 21 kilometers. Our local race, which has no elite runners present, in a rural area, is usually won with a time of around 75-80 minutes. Last year's winner would have been running 3:43 per kilometer. The long run you described was at an average of 6 minutes per kilometer. Most beginner... show more
    Best answer: A half marathon is 21 kilometers. Our local race, which has no elite runners present, in a rural area, is usually won with a time of around 75-80 minutes. Last year's winner would have been running 3:43 per kilometer. The long run you described was at an average of 6 minutes per kilometer. Most beginner training plans would have a person peak at 16 or 18 kilometers for their long run about 2 weeks before their race.

    Nothing about your running indicates you can win a half marathon. Want better info? Go see how far you can run at a 3:40/kilometer pace.

  • Do you run faster if the treadmill is going the same or opposite direction?

    I was watching a cartoon where this guy tried to increase his speed by running on a moving sidewalk. I noticed that the sidewalk was moving in the opposite direction he was running in and it got me thinking. Would he run faster if the moving side walk was going in the same direction he was going in?

  • I need to run 1.5 miles in 16 minutes?

    Best answer: Run at least 3 miles during your training. Your body will get adjusted to that and 1.5 miles will feel like a breeze, allowing you to keep a faster pace during it. Keep at it. You can shave that time off!
