Hello everyone. I have created this tag for discussing about running. My running speed is about 100m(not exact)in about 16 seconds(not exact). I know, its kinda slow, how can i improve it? and, if you know your running speed, post it here. lets see how slow i am when compared to others and how fast i am than you.

I've been a track and field athlete for about 8 years but never specialised in sprinting (throwing, rather) so my best recorded 100m is a modest 12.8s. If you want to get faster then my answer is really simple, find out about your most local 'running' club (a registered athletics club preferably) and speak to the head sprints coach - from there just train hard really.

wow, what is your age? i am fourteen years old, so this isn't a good option for me. with my running there is a strange thing. when i am running all alone or everybody is behind me, i run slow, but when someone is ahead of me, i seem to run much faster, and i somehow manage to pass them, but when i do that, i become slow again and the opponent passes me and i lose. just don't know what is wrong with me. also, when we have to begin, i don't know what happens but i always begin a bit late than the other person. just don't know what happens with me....:(

Where I come from 14 years old is already getting on a bit for joining Athletics clubs, you're definitely not too young. I'm almost 20 but my best was set at about 17. My guess is you're being caught back up because you're worrying too much about being caught back up... I also wouldn't be surprised if you keep looking behind you, stop that. The last thing is just reactions and they would of course need to worked on like any important aspect of sprinting, although both of these highlighted problems would be identified and solved by any good coach if you go out and look for one.

Edit: Just done a quick search on the UK rankings as a ballpark target and at your age (u15) the top 300 are 12.7s and under, top 100 in 12.13s and under, top 10 in 11.57s and under and the current fastest guy at your age in the UK is 11.06s (which also ranks him 9th in the all-time list).

my secret technique to increase my speed is to play basketball. i dribble the ball and run 100m with it, each time, trying to beat my previous timings. hope this helps all those who want to increase their running speed.

You train speed by dribbling a basketball as quick as you can for 100m? That certainly ain't gonna improve your sprinting speed buddy.

i run distance, my 1600m time is sub 5 but i like longer distances like the 3200 and 5k. for sprints, just keep sprinting and work on your form and practice starting out of the block to get that perfect.

i am alright both in sprints and in long races, but i am better in longer races. i don't like longer races because in those races, not much people give me good competition, and if you know that you are going to win, its no fun. so i mainly run sprints/100m as i often lose there:;P

If all you do to train is constant 100m sprints you have f**k-all chance of running a 10.5s. IF you're gonna claim bullshit at least get yourself some knowledge - to even go sub-12s you're gonna need to have been training above and below (100m), doing plenty weightlifting (olympic lifts, plyometrics, the lot), resistance work, isolated technical work (ie block starts), the list goes on and on.
