    Hi guys I just did a bleep test today on my course and I got 12.7 but I feel like it's different to the royal marines bleep test. Does anyone know the distance between the cones and the timings and stuff between each level.

    Cheers

    The cones should be 20m about and you can download the bleep test on your phone. Pretty certain it's the same. It's what my son does.

    It’s a 20m course, remember only one foot need to reach the line not your entire body. A bleep test is a standardised test, any app or YouTube video will be the same timings.

    Ok cheers it's just that I thought that it was quite a good score but I'm struggling a lot with the 1.5 mile return

    Yer that’s a decent score and 4 points on PRMC, are you using a tape measure? When training be strict with getting to the line on time, PTI’s are brutal on this and quite a few guys on mine felt hard done by.

    Maybe it's because you have something to focus on and 'beat' with the beeps. Do you use any apps for tracking running? Something like Strava, you can set it up to tell you every half mile what your pace is. That way you have that prompt to help keep you on track

    Yes I use strava and my return at the moment is only about 10mins 30 secs and I'm aiming for about 9mins

    When is your PRMC? Are you doing hill sprints? These will help with speed too.

    Plenty of time then. Maybe see if there are any running clubs nearby or join parkrun on a Saturday morning. There's nothing like having the competition of running with others to help increase your speed. Good luck
