Track, Field, and Cross Country experiences Answered

Hello everybody! This is knexsniper1 with a brand new forum for everyone to share their experiences! This time it's about athletics; cross country, track and field to be exact! In this forum, I would like everyone to share their experiences while competing, or just for fun; about the mentioned topics. you may share your fastest times in the 100 meter, farthest long jump, tallest high jump, but these are only some of the things that you can share. the choice is up to you! You can also use this forum for tips on competing, or you can share your ideas on how to compete better. Those of you who compete in these sports will have their name displayed here, and stats about them, such as their fastest times etc. Remember! I want this forum to be as "clean" and appropriate as possible, so don't be calling anyone a loser just because they can not run as fast as you, or jump as far as you, or anything! Just to start this forum off, I will be the first one to post my experiences on this! You may share anything you wish! some of my goals include competing national, and then moving on to international, beating the world record for high jump, and beating bolt at 100 meter! Have fun! knexsniper1: - 1 mile run: 5:27 - 100 meter: 10.62 Kiteman: -did an eight minute mile cross-country. That's a thirteen mile cross-country half marathon in less than an hour and three quarters. Smokedasphalt: -timings and distances: 100meters : 10.8s 200m : 22.1s Long jump : 7.08 meters.

Once, i was doing the high jump and i had already fouled my first two attempts. So, only the last and final remained. I was so desperate to clear the bar, that i got a bit too excited and i banged my head on the pole as soon as i jumped!! lol..! Everybody around started laughing! It was a sight! Haha! :)

My timings and distances:
100meters : 10.8s
200m : 22.1s
Long jump : 7.08 meters.
Triple jump : 13.76 meters.
High jump : 1.80meters.
Other achievements : Best athlete of the under-19 category of Pune city.
Plus, loads of medals!! :D

Now, I only concentrate on the 100m and long jump. Hope to participate in the internationals one day!

I did both, though track was more fun for me. I went to state for the 4X100 and 4X400, we placed 24th and 25th respectively. I did a lot better at relays because I didn't want to let the team down. I don't remember my individual 100, but the 400 was 1:07, discus was 59' (terrible, I know), high jump was 4'10", long jump was 13' 6".

Way back in the day*, I used to do an eight minute mile cross-country. That's a thirteen mile cross-country half marathon in less than an hour and three quarters.

I run cross country, indoor track (really outdoors) and track I remeber this at this one XC meet last year there was this 2 foot deep puddle that covered a huge portion of the course, some kid fell in it then I stepped on him with my spikes (I had the 3/4 inchers in), that was probably the most exciting thing that has happened so far

wow, that must have really hurt! i have this one humerous, yet really painful experience. see, while running in crosscountry, we were at this meet, and on the track, there was this huge hole, but no one could see it. and so we were runing, and one by one, the kids started falling into the hole! so at the end, there were about 6 or 7 kids in the hole! they canceled the meet that day for too many injuries! :P
