Your body cant really make improvements in 2 weeks, Im the same before a big race i always think oh sh*t i need to improve on this and that but its too late by that time, Your body doesnt adapt to the change in training that fast, So i normally change things 5 weeks before a big race etc if i want to make a gain on something.. Personally mate just keep on running at the pace your doing and build your aerobic strength up.. Maybe look at getting a "power breathe" will increse lung capacity i use them everyday helps me with my cycling etc.. You can really feel the difference it builds your lung muscles up. That would be the best thing to get to help a little in PRMC..

Good Luck with it all anyway mate!

haha cheers mate.
1.5mile-9.30
sit ups-96
press ups-58
pull ups-6
assault course around 3.30

thats the easiset part mate dont put too much emphasis on gym test 1 and on the determination test just stay in the middle or if you can at the front and just keep goin make sure you just dont do anything wrong dont want to be doing extra press ups haha. and the same goes for gym test 2 and the sprints at the end of it never be at the back and dont do anything they havnt told you to do like Scrathch or wipe sweat in the gym haha the corporals hate that and youll end up doing press extra ups *text deleted*.

haha dont mind answerin questions i was like you not so long ago wanting someone to answer me questions about the prmc so no worries i got 11.3 on it mate quite alot of lads all got above the 10 mark and they all passed its just a case of go balls out on everything for example if youve done 60 press ups just keep going unil you cant do anymore.

I've got an ingenius idea!!

do some altitude training!!

go somewhere really high, where there is less oxygen than at ground level, do some running then your body will make extra red blood cells to collect more oxygen, then if you come back down and run, you body will have more red blood cells in your system, and you should be able to perform better!

a bit far-fetched i know, but still!:rally_drive:

*text deleted* i think you have to go to at least 3km above sea level for significant improvement and literally stay at that height for over 8 hours a day mininum.
