As the heart is on the left side, for humans and animals, running anticlockwise makes the centrifugal force in the body to act from left to right. Whereas it is from right to left for clockwise running.
Superior venecava takes blood to the heart aided by heart suction. This vein carries blood from left to right. Centrifugal force due to anticlockwise running helps this suction.
If we run clockwise, the centrifugal force impedes suction. That is why, in olden days, health officers ensured that all carnival merri-go-rounds were run only in the anti-clockwise direction.
Racing tracks, animal shows in circuses, bullock-drawn pelt on wheels, all mostly have only left turns. Stairways in temple towers have only left turns for going up.
Clockwise running tires people, especially children, easily.
As we know that if we breathe from left nose hole, cool air will go inside and if we breathe from right nose hole, warm air will go inside. When we run on a circular track anticlockwise, we will breathe from right nose hole .Which will warm up our body and we can run more fast as when we start race, we first warm up our body and then start running.
12.5 laps around a standard outdoor track is 5000 meters. One lap of a standard track is 400 meters.
You run around on a big track!
u would have to run around the track once
A mile around a standard 400m track is 4 laps. So you need to run 6 laps around the track to cover 1.5 miles.
0.5 laps around the track each lap is 400m
Any child can run around a track as long as they can run. There is no age requirement to be able to go around a track. Kids 1-2 years old may run if they wish.
No...you run counterclockwise.
You will have run a half-mile.
I would say that the average High School athelete can run a mile in seven minutes. maybe if they are a girl and not in track or cross country for a girl in track, average is around 6 minutes, possibly a bit faster, for guys average ~5 for athletes not in track, i don't know since they don't normally run timed miles...
A 400 meter dash or 1/4 of a mile is once around a standard sized track.
