Hi well this is my first post. So its also an introduction. Well my name is Dave. I'm 22 years old. I hate my job and i've done a few different jobs. Used to be in the TA. But had to leave because of commitments. I really enjoyed it. I shoot guns. I'm also a biker. I've started the process for joining the armed forces. I'm currently working through the army fitness plan. I'm running 2.5 miles in 19 minutes and 30 seconds. Outside along local roads. Which is a good mix of down hill,up hill, and flat. I'm planning on joining the Paratroopers. What is the actual run time for 1.5 miles to join the Paratroopers at recruit selection weekend? Is it the same as normal forces 10 minutes and 30 seconds for combat? I heard for the Para's that its 9 minutes and 18 seconds? Also is there a minimum limit for the press-ups and sit-ups for recruit selection weekend for Para's? On my fitness poster it says there no requirements for this atall. When i was in the TA i'm fairly certain that it was 44 press-ups and 50 sit-ups?
