  • Running

    So, im surprised there is not a running thread on the first page of the sport forum.

    Any runners here? Whether it be the crazies that wear spandex and do marathons or just us normals that wear shorts and t-shirt whilst doing the bare minimum.

        Re: Running

        Fuzz, have you got a date for selection? You will need to push out way more than a couple of miles. Bft used to be 1.5m in 15 grouped, followed straight after with 1.5m in under 10m 30s best effort, age dependant. The RAF was bleep tested. Someone else might be able to advise better.

              What reg r u joining wen i did selection it was mile and half in under 10 1/2 mins but i was joining the infantry (stafords) each cap badge has a diff standard to reach para's and marines have to do it in less then 10 1/2 mins i think wen you go into training they start u off slow n low miles and bulid u up but doing a few miles a day will help alot

                  Doing my first 10k tomorrow for fun, hoping to get it done in about 45 minutes. Haven't really done any long distance before but been enjoying the training, even if my knees haven't!

                    10km isn't long distance, it's a reasonable training run. 45mins? That's a good 7 min mile pace. Think you can do that?

                      They are indeed! I remember 1.5 mile squad in 15 mins, then individual 1.5 mile in under 8.5 mins!

                      That was a few years ago mind, would struggle a bit now lol. Still enjoy running, especially when I can get into the zone with it...but I agree HunterAndy, the knees grumble a bit these days

                        Re: Running

                        started running a few months ago, used to be fit in my teens and twenty's but i'm in my 40's now and over weight after giving up smoking...
                        i have dog's and started power walking instead of strolling then moved on to jogging the flats and down hills and extending the distance a little at a time, still walk some of the uphill bit's but then i live on the downs and the hill's are steep.will keep on but it's getting no easier, was expecting a greater improvement in my stamina and speed but i guess it takes more time when you are older.

                          I'm sorry but that post with your signature gif gave me a hilarious mental image.

                            Re: Running

                            Current PFA (BFT for you oldies) is:

                            800m warm up in no more than 5 mins (run, walk, mobility stretches etc)

                            No more than a 10 second wait before the main run. It is still a minimum standard of 1.5 miles (2.4km / 6 laps of running track) in under 10mins 30secs for the youngsters. 11mins for 30-35yrs. 11min 30secs for 35-40yrs.

                            You still have to complete up too 55 years old whereas after 40 you just used to turn up.

                            Anyway - I hate running. I need to do it for work and I know it has it's benefits, but the boredom kills me. I did the Fleet half marathon a few years back. One training session of about 4 miles, hung over and my MP3 player broke in between the gun going off and actually reaching the tagged start line That was a shitty day!

                              The raf prefer the bleep test. Age dependant but generally for blokes it is around the level 10 mark for a pass, then 1 min each of sit ups and press ups. Forgot the targets.
                              Bleep test is bobbins, knackers your knees with all that turning and whilst the distances work out at around the 1.5min 10 mins it is, I think a bit harder as you have to do it at the tests pace.
