    I'm just a bit worried about the 2.4km (1.5m) run on the treadmill that we have to do, last week I had a time of 12.08 and this week I had a time of 11.23 and I need to get it down to 10 mins.

    I use the rowing machine a lot too.

    Many Thanks

    It's changed to 10 minutes flat now, aim to run it in that or you won't pass.

    i find its def easier running on a treadmill than on the road, i think they recommend having it set at 0.1 incline to compensate for this but I recommend getting off road if possible really helps with your core strength if your slipping and sliding about during run + there is no spring in your step like you get from road running, i live in the fens so no probs to go off road for me prob a little harder for the city guys.

    My AFCO told me that i had to get a time of about 9 & a half min on the PJFT for him to continue with my application (even though it's officially 10min dead). I don't know if that was just him, or if he didn't like me or something. I got 9min 34sec which he was happy with.

    well done! they were prob just pushing you a little so you gave it your best effort, i'm sure they would have passed you in ten flat. good effort!
