Hi, so i have decided to go for it! i first thought of joining about 6 months ago thought i'd better get in shape been training hard! can run 8 mile 60 mins (average) mixed terrain. Been out tabbing today with weight not sure how much, no scales but got bruised shoulders and my legs feel f*cked (love it). 4 hrs fast pace apart from the first incline, it was a very steep incline. Been out a few times now gets a little easier each time until i add more weight . Anyway my question is am i doing enough??? I run 3-5 miles twice a week always pushing harder and harder if it starts to feel easy i push harder until it hurts. 8 mile run once a fortnight mixed terrain and try for somewhere different each time. gym 2-3 times a week. swimming is a slight problem!! Haven't swam properly for years and my technique is all out of whack but have been informed swim test is next feb so should have plenty of time to practise. Reason i ask is because most threads i see a lot of people are saying its very hard, almost impossible to pass unless your some kind of olympic runner/worlds strongest man/ land rover Any info would be a great help! i haven't made this decision lightly. Excitement has turned into panic could be starting in jan! Just need a real insight to what to expect.
