    So I know the entry standards for PJFT and can comfortably run the return in under 10:30.

    My issue is that the treadmill I have been training on is in Mph. Is this the case at Nuffield? What's the general order of business do they set the speed for you on the first leg and you adjust on the return or do they deal with everything?

    I know it's best effort but have also heard that if you touch the treadmill/grab at it you will fail? Is that the case even if you're literally just trying to increase the speed?

    Help appreciated!

    For my PJFT we did it on an astro-turf pitch. Double check with your AFCO that you're going to do it on a treadmill is all I can say *text deleted* unfortunately.

    The treadmill I used was KPH.. convert the speeds to KPH prior so you know exactly what ya running

    You alone adjust the speed. The instructor can’t touch the treadmill at all. Be careful when adjusting the speed, don’t make it look like your resting on the button

    Basically the instructor will stand there bored outta their mind while you run.

    Nice one buddy thanks for the info. I was planning to take a conversion sheet with me in any event just to make sure. Just didn;t want to completely *text deleted* it up by thinking I was running something I wasn't.

    Will do the conversion and make sure I'm bang on what I'm doing now. Trying to keep all variables the same. haha!

    But listen good luck. Should be an easy test. Just keep your cool. Don't panic just cause you start getting a bit out of breath.
    I'd imagine treadmills might be a bit more *text deleted* than how we did it

    They will not fail you for trying to adjust the speed, they allow that. They will fail you if you use the treadmill for support ( That's how I failed in the last 200 m) But I am redoing it in 2 weeks. The PT will go through a warm up and cool down with you as well as a brief beforehand.

    My Achilles heel is my sit ups. Got my PRMC in a few weeks and can't get up to 70 on the bleep yet.

    For the running man it is as simple as adding on a couple of mile each week. I just managed a 10 miler there this evening, at the expense of a now damp tee shirt.

    Same regarding the sit ups. I *text deleted*ing hate them! How are you increasing your reps? Following a specific plan or working to failure each time?

    Sit ups I’d work your core and hip flexors, banging out reps probably won’t be that beneficial but you will get a definitive answer soon enough.

    Basically I just keep doing them nearly every day to the bleep. And pray to God that I'll be able to it least 60 for the PRMC. I know I won't be fresh on the day so I need to be up past 70 on the bleep if I want a chance to pass.
