Yes, 20 meters. The bleep test overall I should imagine is about 2 miles at level 20something.

so would i be correct in saying if you can run a good 2 miler at a GOOD pace, you would fair ok at the Bleep test?

Best I've got is 13. And I'm pretty sure you get max points for reaching 13 at PRMC. I've got it the last 3 times in a row so I should get it again.

Erm, no. The bleep test starts off at practically walking pace (9 seconds for 20 meters) and gets upto constant sprints. If you could sprint,jog,sprint,jog for 40 minutes straight you'd have a good chance of getting a nice high score. Remember after level 13 it's literally a fast run to sprint pace.

Don't forget you'll be doing this after a 3 miler at PRMC!

Guys, the bleep test isn't really for perfomance increasing. It's to 'test' progression hence it's technical term is a VO2 Max Test!

Very impressive Joe.

Whilst no expert on the subject, a couple of "snippets" I've picked-up along the way are firstly there are different lengths of measured distance - PRMC uses 20 metres & utilises a CD recording to avoid tape-stretch & inaccurate timings/results. (Not that I'm suggesting your results are inaccurate).

Why are you waiting until September to take your PRMC Joe, I'm curious?

well i had a long hard think about it and a talk with my parents way before i started my application and decided that i would join up in january if i was successful in all my tests, as it would be a good way to start a new year. it would also be the perfect age for me as i will be 17 4 mnths by that time. i wanted to start my application early before all of my gcse's started and also so its one less thing to worry about when i leave school. and as im looking to join up in january time my careers advisor wouldnt put me on an earlier PRMC date as he said that down at lympstone they dont like to have to much of a gap between the PRMC abd the RT date as people lose their fitness. but my PRMC date is really good as im 17 the day before it :D... the only thing that bothers me is that i will get frustrated from the time i leave school until the date i join up.. im jus gna keep fit get a little job and enjoy my last bit of time i have left with my mates at home..but even now all i thoink about is joining up i dont know what im going to be like in a few months.

hope that made sense if it does'nt then say *text deleted*

It entirely makes sense & it's good to see people plan ahead, it also means you will get a good start in RT before you go on Easter leave. I'd definitely go along with the advice given with regard keeping the gap between passing & joining to a minimum. Good luck.

Used to be but the bleep test gave the PTIs an idea who'd fail the 3 miler the next day!

Nope not true, we did the 3 miler first.

Then went back got changed, and did the gym test later.
