The Mile Run Class Overview

The One-Mile Run is a great alternate task to determine an estimate of one's VO2max while improving aerobic capacity. The main objective is to run as fast as one can. If a student can not complete the distance running, then walking will be permitted. The only way to get a true reading for aerobic capacity, maximal effort and participation is required for proper times and scores to be assessed. Effort for each student will be measured on The Borg RPE Scale 6-20, which all students are familiar with from previous classes. The students will be split up into partners which whom they chose, and the scores and times will be held confidentially with the individual students and myself.
