List your 400M run time!

I always see topics labeled "list your deadlift" (like the topic just below me), "list your bench/shoulder press/deadhang pullups, etc" numbers as well. But is a fast 400 meter run time not equally indicative of a fit human being as an impressive deadlift? I've just never see any love given to the fleet of foot.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours

Weight is 220#, 6'1.5" with high ape index (long arms) and large frame. Doing crossfit for 13months from an pretty unfit ex-smoker state. Spent the better part of a decade excelling in doing jack-sheet! Now my 220# should probably be closer to 210#.

I don't know what 400m max is really. During most wods with running I usually try to keep it to 1:30s (except for when I'm toast or hurt and starts getting out to 2mins). 800m @ 3-3:30 and 1 mile about 7:30.
I did a 6x400m repeat with 2 minutes rest recently and was supposed to target 1:30 - but I kept coming in at 1:21-1:23 except for last round which was 1:27. So that's me trying to pace slow.
In all honesty, if I tried to do a max 400m I'd probably blow out my left thigh and right Achilles tendon for a week+. (from many years of nonstop stop-go-fast-backwards-sprint-sidways-stop in touch rugby / sevens / 15s rugby). When I was younger, I think I could do the 100 in ~<11s and could run 2 miles, hung over, in 10 mins. Why hung over ? Because that's the only time I ran while it was being timed. But that was when I was younger and doesn't count for nothing today.

Additionally:
DL is 461# about 6 months ago. No belt or fancy shoes. Just some chalk.
Max strict pull-ups is 6 last time I tried and I'd be surprised if it were more. Kipping is 10 because I hold my breath and is usually only ever done during a wod - that and I really struggle to do them. I don't have the motivation to just get up there and see how many I can do - I think I need some adrenaline to do that.

I ran a 5k a few months ago for the first time running in a decade (other than x meters in wods) and that was 23:04 mins.
Max mile time is about 7 mins I'd say - guess. But I have started running more recently from 2-5 miles and are doing my splits during those from 7:30-8mins, depending on hills and distance. I'm not going for max speed here either - just nice and easy, targeting a slower pace.
1k row back in August was 3:30 and 2k was 7:35. 500m is 1:36 and 250 was 40 seconds. Those times are all from August last year and the 2k row was during the WOD Jerry - probably the one and only time I'll row 2k as it sucks. When I row in any wod, early rounds I try to maintain about 30strokes@1:45 and later rounds will probably be 1:50's at a lower stroke rate (like 27) - but always try for less than 2 minutes.
NOTE: Mile times in Jerry were 7:29 and 8:15. Contained two steep hills too.


Maybe there should be another another Crossfit Total. It will include DL; Pull ups; 400m & 5k run; 250m swim; 250 & 2k row; a softball throw; Press ; Clean ; Fran and closest guess to how many raw almonds are in the jar. Add all that together then divide by the sum of your height, weight, arm length, and the mathematical equivalent of whatever excuse one has for sucking at wall balls.

Re: List your 400M run time!

Around the block 400m (ie. approximate distance): 1:05
Around the track 400m: 1:01

I would like to get under 1 min at some point but I haven't really run much in the last few months. Now that the snow is gone, that will change.

Re: List your 400M run time!

College 51 secs age 20

Now - 1:15 age 36

That said I don't sprint the 400 anymore... Chance of cardiac arrest, passing out, and tossing my lunch seems less desire able. Back then it showed you gave it all, now just shows I'm old and out of shape

Re: List your 400M run time!

Last time I ran it was back in September. 1:36 @ ~250 pounds. I was pacing myself, but I ran it considerably faster than I thought. Next time I get an opportunity I'll run all out and see what I can do.
