I don't know any of them fancy converions and all that stuff, but if my speed remained constant how fast would I have to be moving to run it in 4 minutes? in 5? in 6?

Thanks Sim :)

I ran a mile earlier with a speed between 7-9, most of it was a little over 8 mph and i ran it in almost exactly 8 minutes.

a bit of simple algebra will give you the equation

s = 60/t

where s = speed (velocity) in mph
      t = time in minutes to run the mile

for example, a 4 minute mile--     s = 60/4
                                   s = 15 mph
