im kind of at a stand still. at this moment in time i dont have the energy to do 2.4km on a tredmill 1 min break and another 2.4km run. i was confident when the PJFT was just a 2.4k and thats it, i tried it the other day my face went pale when i did double what i usually do. is there anything i can do to train myself to get better scores.

i also been told that you do all your situps, pressups and pullups *text deleted* much all after the run.

any help would be great.

The pressups etc are PRMC exclusive.

PJFT is just the run.

I'd practise running more, and don't go there till you know you can do the runs. I dont mean jog them, stopwatch time your runs.

Just keep running, running and running - its the only way to get better.

Try some various workout like high intensity if need be, theres stuff dotted all over the site to help you :)

You're given 23 minutes to run 3 miles in and that's including a 1 min break, you should be able to do that easily. You should be running 3 miles in under 20 minutes with no breaks.

Just keep training. You'll have to get that 'energy'.:wink:

And yeah the Pushups etc are done after the bleep test, you do the run a couple of hours earlier. So you should practice doing the BW exercises after your runs.

If you cant do it on a tread mill you will not pass RMAD or PRMC. Would recommend you start running 3 miles at least four times a week and work towards running the 3 miles in under 20 mins with no breaks. Once you get that done then move onto doing push ups and sit ups directly after the run. Its dam hard at first for the majority of us at the start but just keep doing it and it gets easier.

best of luck

Try interval training. Jog for say 5 mins and sprint for say 30 seconds or to the nearest tree or lampost or something else. If you jog around a football pitch jog one side and then sprint the ends.

This is what i am doing, i do it on a treadmill but i have 5 years until i join so i am getting stamina up before i run otside. However as you are so cloe i would suggest running outside.

Best of luck.
