Read a few posts here about long/longer runs, and just looking for more info to improve my fitness if you don't mind... At Phase 1 do you have set times for the longer runs to be completed in? Do you do the longer runs in full kit or in your hi-tec trainers?? Any feedback??? Start end of March at Pirbright. Just started the fitness booklet, and my 1.5mile time is 10mins(at adsc)-still 10mins, been out 3times this week. Can do 50 situps(arms folded across chest). 40 pressups at a push - need to work on this, get 20 no bother, 30 taxing and 40 knacked! also 3times this week. Do admit upper body strength isn't good. I'm an elderly applicant(not giving too much away and all that)!! But went out today on longer run, 3miles, and it was slight sleet/snow up north - did it in 30mins, comfortably, but not at high pace or push. Think i'll need to work on this. Think i'll do more 3milers and increase the miles every week or so. Any advice?
