Be Honest.......whats your 1.5 mile run time?1

#1
10.30 At ADSC
 
#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.

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

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?

You deffinately don't want to be eating that kind of thing before you go for a run! Or too often at all really.

Some good complex carbs - wholemeal pasta, brown rice and so on and a source of protein. Plenty of water too.
Aye, too right. My diet is the only thing letting me down, I really gotta get it sorted. Cheers for the tips. I'm drinking a ton of water, I just hate having to go the toilet every 5 minutes. :)

Protein is lacking for sure, I should up my intake of peanut butter and baked beans.
1.if you want protein get on the meat,milk or eggs
2.your run will be at approx 9:00am meaning you will have just done your team tasks and had your breakfast at 7 therefore whatever you have on the night wont matter and it will be most likley either chicken,roast ham and a selection of veg and a dessert if you want it
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

...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:

Got selection on wednesday at litchfield, im 24 and doing run in 11 mins. Going reme, should be ok? Currently in TA so think ill be ok with the rest team tasks and conduct like.

Under 10:30 now. Isn't that under the limit they expect for infantry? Not that I'm going to rest on my laurels and take it easy now, I still have 6 months training ahead of me before I begin my application. It's just nice to know that I've achieved a passable time.

If I keep it up I might hit Para times by then. :D

at selection i was told infantry needed to run it under 11 mins, allthough the cut off was up to 12:45, dont aim for the minimum get it under 10 mins you have plenty of time.
