    This may seem a very odd question(s) but I got thinking about smashing out a Pre PRMC tests this friday.

    Friday morning:

    3 mile run at max effort with hills in under 22 minutes (currently sitting at 19:59)
    followed by a bleep test or hill sprints which ever would be harder?
    Cycle to the gym (its about 4 miles) do gym tests, deadlifts, squats, a whole body workout!
    Swimming at the local leisure centre for around 20, 30 minutes.
    Ride home, have lunch.

    2pm onwards:

    Smash the legs prior to a 4 mile run, hills, crawls, sprints, push ups, sit ups, the lot just to really get the legs burning.
    4 mile run with hills.

    Any information, hints/tips etc would be greatly appreciated!

    In all honesty I reckon it's a good idea, gives you the real feeling of what you'll be feeling like come PRMC. Just don't over do it, last thing you want is an injury. You got a PRMC coming up soon?

    Sounds good mate. What time are you aiming to do the 4 miler in?

    Wish I had someone to train with to be honest, I'd love to do mock PRMC type training. My gym partner doesn't last 10 minutes on a treadmill let alone spend the early hours of the morning running and crawling up hills through cold, wet mud :(

    The plan is to just get everything done in one day, but yeah its overkill but I'm a determined young little chappy! I certainly do have PRMC, coming up soon, I really need to smash everything! :)

    The thing is I will be absolutely ruined prior to the 4 mile run and this route will be far from easy. I'l get back to you on the times etc once I have finished.

    Typical body builder I take it?

    What would you wear to do crawls etc?

    I'm torn up between boots and trail running shoes - definitely ain't wasting my running shoes!

    Can only imagine the look on a random passers-by's face watching you do crawls in the mud :confused:

    I'm thinking of doing some crawls the next time I go to the woods and hills where I live. There's a trail pretty deep in the woods which not a lot of people go to that is muddy in the summer, let alone now with all the rain and floods we've been having.

    I must remember to pack a spare set of clothes so I don't have to walk home looking like a right muppet! ;)

    I'm more likely to do GVT then after do 2 minutes of push ups, sit ups and max out on pull ups.
