The way to determine this is as follows: Average=shoppers at Wal-Mart on any given weekend. Take the first 100 shoppers to exit the door. Divide them up by age/sex groups. Give them a pair of running shoes. Let them have at it. I would be surprised if the first 20% did not drop dead before completion. The other 70% would be wheezing, looking for the Wal-Mart fat cart, and struggling to complete the test. Maybe the remaining 10% would be able to finish it in 10-15 minutes. Americans are obese and out of shape. If you can do a mile in 10 minutes, you are doing great!
