Hi m8's, im joining up and have selection at pirbright in 4 days. ive been running my 1.5 miles every other day for a month and can complete the run without stopping. i timed my self 2 weeks ago at 10:51. now with 4 days to go i went for a run and did 11.30. Im pretty much stressed because ive been pretty consistent with my run, no slacking off and ive maintained the same weight and all. went today again to run and couldnt complete the whole 1.5 mile run. what is happening to me????????

You are being a self defeatist poof. Grow up and get on with it. You know what you can do so be positive and run hard to the point of pucking if need be to pass.

Depressed? Get a grip!

11 mins sucks!

you're training wrong. not resting enough and then not trying hard enough!

trust 1.5 miles aint far to run 'non-stop'

get some 6-10 milers in and it'll help alot more then go do some sprint sessions to help yourself out. however you are not training right!!

this is from someone thats been injured alot and had to reduce my time 7 times now!!

That’s the sort of attitude that’s going to keep you in the Phys biff bracket for the rest of your life. I’m twice your age I way over 210 lb and still do it under 9.30. Sort your self out

10:30 is the minimum required standard, not what you should be aiming to achieve. You should aim to do it in as short a time as you possibly can. Unless your happy to set yourself low standards and to do the minimum required in all things. :roll:

I'm sorry but you did ask. What do you expect us to do? Run it for you? Give you some sort of magic dust to make you miraculously run it quicker?

It sounds like your whole training regime has been pants. Instead of being 'depressed', face the fact that you aint going to pass in four days.

Brutal but honest. This aint the X Factor.
