Is running 4 miles in a hour slow? Keep in mind that I weight about 300 pounds.?

At your weight you shouldn't be running. Its great you want to exercise but it would be wise to choose something easier on the body. Swimming is fantastic. Walking, biking and elliptical are also good options.

Very slow. 4 mph is in fact the typical rate for walking. 20 + mph is a good sustainable running speed.

For most people 2 to 4 mph will be a walking speed; 4 to 5 mph will be a very fast walk or jog; and anything over 5 mph will be jogging or running

You shouldn't be running at 300 Lbs. Walking or light jogging is a better option until you lose weight.

Considering your weight, no, not slow. Thats like at a brisk walk pace for me, about 4.0 MPH on my treadmill. I know my husband couldnt do a 4 mile run when he was 300 pounds so the fact youre even doing that is awesome.

Covering 4 miles in an hour does not count as "running".

Doesn't sound slow considering weight.
