Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 10.30 At ADSC
  2. best 10 minutes flat
  3. 11:00 dead on, huge improvement over the months from what it was. Started doing additional interval training on the treadmill and it's helping a lot.
  4. 8.06 for 1.5 miles, and I'm 43 and smoke 20 a day you malingering fcuks.........

  5. I reckon the 1.5 mile time requirement should be the same across the board no matter what reg you are going for.

  10. Does each ADSC have a different time limit? I know I have to get under 13.15 for my chosen job but at pre-adsc we were told 12.35 was the cut off.
    Im due to go to Lichfield soon, and I was wondering what their cut off point is?
  11. sorry to shatter your dream but you need no special nutrion whatsoever for a 1.5 mile run; no extra carbs, protein, fats etc.

    anybody that tells you otherwise is wrong.

    i could bore you with the details, but i can't be bothered - less to say that an individual eating a normal balanced diet will have arund 2-2500Kcals of energy stored and ready to use for vigorous exercise - their glycogen store - only when this runs out do we need to start looking at nutrion to replace or top up. Ref protein, there is no requirement to increase your protein unless your undertaking serious amounts of training - ie, full time, or very ardous training (3hrs) a day.

    hydration is far more important - in most instances water is sufficient

  15. ...well, I was more referring to the fact that chowing down on 'greasy pizza' 2 hours before attempting a run might not be a good idea. If eating whatever you like is good prep for a run then fair enough, I'd still prefer to play it safe and I'd try to stick to a diet I suggested anyway. If you can be bothered (and I'm not being sarcy here, I am actually interested) can you drop a PM with links or resources where I can verify this. My own reading and research has led me to the beliefs I hold now. I'm always prepared to learn.

    I can only speak for myself but I don't think I'd be at my best attempting a run after a big ol' pizza. Perhaps it's all psychological though.

    ...And I did say plenty of water in my defence. :wink:
