Why do you call your senior officers Ruperts?Has the run been reduced? Used to be 1.5. I had to do the run at Glencorse. Can remember being told by a Rupert that we should do it in about thirteen minutes. Then once he left we got informed by a gnarly looking sergeant that if we didn't do it in under eleven minutes then fvck off. He didn't want us in his beloved army.
Broke the tension anyway!
I don't have any physical training qualifications nor am I a soldier yet but what I would do is to look at the muscles used in the exercise and then exercise those muscles in a different way to make them stronger. Once again I am not qualified but that is just what my thoughts are.Any tips on practising for the mid-thigh pull without the use of any gym equipment at all and stuck indoors?
Personally mate I would do both to cover all basesI have a question regarding running for the Parachute Regiment; Should I be focused on long distance endurance running or should I also do sprints training? I have read around the forum and have seen people just advicing to run long distances to train and others saying that sprints and fartlek training is also very effective.
I have started running 5 a week because of lockdown. My plan is 3 longer slow runs, 1 fartlek run and 1 interval sessionAt the moment everyday but that is only because of lockdown.
Normally I would run on 4 days, go to the gym for 2 days and go swimming 1 day a week.

Yes, you do. Cant remember the distance off top of head; something like a full lap or two depending on the size of the pool. Any stroke, just dont touch the side.Do I need to be able to swim? Cause I am really really bad at it as I haven't had the privilege to get full lessons. I did them at school, but they mainly focused on the people who could already swim meaning I had to try and teach myself
