Local AFCO running club

#1
Hey guys just thought I'd recommend going to your local afco running club. I went last night and it's really good training. Basically I turned up thinking we would do our 1.5 run and go home, oh how wrong was I! :x They make you do your run then you do a full hour of pt and I mean tough pt. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone, they really work you hard and beast you if you don't do things right too 8O

Yeah mate it's in maida vale, few mins from the station. First we did our 1.5 on the running track then we did some stretches n stuff then we had to file into rank (you get beasted if you don't rank properly!) and do partnered things like running while doing a fire-mans lift, lots of press-ups! burpees, sprints. The usual pt stuff. It's great mate you should definately give it a go.

Well I'm sh*t at pressups too but he sets amounts like, run to here and do 8 then get up and run to here and do 6 and so on. Lots of guys couldnt do the full amount but the pt instructor just wants to see you put in your maximum effort. I got my adsc next thurs n fri and if I pass that I'm definately gonna keep going to running club up until I start basic :p

Are AFCO Running Clubs common or are there only a few around?
Not sure mate, i thought they were common but best call your afco to see
 
#15
Id imagine they could only do it at a careers office who have a PTI kickin about, to avoid stuff like 'i cant go to selection because i hurt myself running with the recruiting sgt'

Just been there today derder, they definately put you through your paces!

We did the 1.5 mile run first (did it in 9:41 which isn't bad :) ) the we did some exercise circuits like push-ups, star jumps, 1 leg squats etc. If your acio has a running club i would advice you all to go there atleast once, at the wembley acio its compulsary to go once before they can send you to the ADSC.

May soon become compulsory to go at least twice and pass your 2.4km run before attending ADSC
 
#18
Yes 'mon, the ACIO near me has the one were they won't send you to ADSC until they've seen what kind of shape you're in and are happy with it. Took me about 6 times of going before they were satisfied with me haha.

If he does then his selection's taking a really long time.
