Olympic Runner Speed Mph
Why is there times i can sprint 18 mph then some other day i can't reach that speed? (i download an app to calculate speed so that how i know )
Normal: Your body performs better on different days depending on a host of different factors. Just like a major league pitcher might be able to 'hit' 96 on the radar gun some outings , and ' only ' 94 or 95 on other outings... The more u train , however, the more likely u will hit your peak velocity more consistently, and even surpass it.Good luck! ...Read more

You may need to placed in a cast if there's a fracture or a walking boot. Orthotics can help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
