    I'm no longer on this date, had some injury issues which are hopefully over but feel I want to build back up a bit more before PRMC.

    App Stage:
    Passed POC
    Bad times 'C', hopefully no more woes' for the next one.

    did a hilly return 1.8 in 11.41, so i'm feeling a bit more confident!
    How you feeling Alba?

    Training is going well here, Doing circuit training with my boxing coach for two hours, three days per week and doing lots of hill sprints and duck walks etc on the off days. Also still going to the gym ifiI'm not too tired and trying to get my bft return down a bit (it's definitely passable, I'd just like to be closer to the 9:00 mark)

    Hey, two weeks today guys! How's everybody feeling? also to as a followup on Matt's question: Training is good here, I've been doing a lot of circuit training so I'm fairly confident and looking forward to getting destroyed on bottom field. I'm getting around 9:30-9:40 in my BFT return after the 1.5 mile warmup. Also getting around 45-50 pushups, 60-65 situps and i can do 12 pullups comfortably:D. So i guess i'm most concerned about my pushups or my BFT return if i had to choose something i would like to improve by then. Also, i'm struggling to keep my pushups going for the full 2 minutes, does anybody else have this issue? do you just smash them out or do you really pace yourself? -banghead-

    Where you coming down from mate? And I'm literally the same stage as you training wise! Put me a bit more at ease reading that *text deleted*! Think that on the 1.5 return I'll run my best time ever as will just get in a mindset that I need to crack on and i don't want to be last! I'm struggling with push-ups too, currently doing 50 in around the 1:10 mark but do you have to complete the full 2 minutes or is it just however many you can do before he 2 minute mark is up?

    Hey Matt, I'm coming from Edinburgh, you don't HAVE to do then for the full two minutes you will get told to stand up if you're not pushing any more out, i was just wondering if all the other lads were doing the full 2. I agree with you in that i think you're going to get your best scores on the day when you're in that mindset.

    That's a fair old journey fella! Have you had your briefing at your AFCO yet? What times did you get on the PJFT?

    Nope I phoned regarding that but was told i didn't need to go in for one. I got 9:48 for my return when i went and did the RMAD so it has improved, i still want to get it down safely under 9:30 though! :D What about you?

    Nice one mate I feel confident but you never know what to expect I suppose *text deleted*, oh well 2 weeks will fly by now! And as weird as it sounds I did my return in 09:47 so was pretty happy as the gym was like a sauna! but like to think I've improved as currently running 4 mile in 28:00 on the dot!

    Joking aside @Briggsy , it's good advice!

    My lad got fit for pjft, prmc and then RT by using a rowing machine, kettle bells and running around where we live which is pretty hilly!

    How did you manage 09:47 on the treadmill, but 09:58 on the 1.5mile run on the 3rd October?

    Good effort on the 10.3miles.. Bit long for preparing for PRMC isn't it?

    Thinking of buying these trainers.. What are your thoughts on them?

    Ps.
    on the 6th day god created the treadmill whilst sleeping that night god decided on the 7th day he would create incline and from that day on god sat back and watched people fail..

    Don't really know, I suppose the fact I had a gym instructor watching over me whilst I did my PJFT spurred me on a little, I wasn't really in any fit state after I completed my PJFT, and you might knock those yellow trainers and they where cheap as chips but they've carried me a fair few miles over the last couple of months!
