“To pass a basic fitness test in the Army, a 22-year-old male (the standards vary by age) has 17 minutes and 30 seconds to run two miles in order to pass; a female of the same age gets 20 minutes and 36 seconds to run the same distance. In other words, a male who finishes in 17:30 will receive the same score as a female who finishes in 20:36. “
At 56 years of age jogging at my local park, 2 miles in less than 20 minutes WAS my STANDARD. You guys set tet the bar extremely low.
