1200M

Answered By Mick Grant & John Molvar

Question

HI, My daughter nearly 10yrs old runs the 1200m in 5:30 and I would like to know if its a good time? She is very fit and she ran the 2k for xc and her time was 9:00 and the xc season has just finished 2 weeks ago. Thank you, Maria

Answer

Have Fun Stay Healthy Think long term. Her time is good for age 10. Don't worry about times at age 10, though. Enjoy the process of growing up and gradually developing speed and strength. Many people worry too much about times at a young age and by high school/college, they aren't running anymore because they forgot to have fun.
