I have my main board in 3 and a half weeks and have been practicing my bleep test, as that's what let me down in my briefing and I wanted to share my training programme if anyone is interested. Firstly, I use this youtube video for the bleep test sound. It only goes up to LVL 10.3 so its perfect for my training. The Beep Test Level 1 to 10.3 (part 1) - YouTube Every monday I try and do the whole test to see where the fitness is, and so far I have managed to get to lvl 9.6. I'm ok until lvl 7.5 then my legs start to hurt. Once I have given up on the bleep test, I will pause the video, and take a 60 second break, then try and complete it to lvl 10.2 to show myself that it only takes an extra 60 seconds to achieve my goal. I will do the final stage 2-3 times. Then on Wednesday, I start at lvl7 and complete the test twice up until lvl 10.2 to improve my sprints as this is where I struggle. I then repeat this on Friday. On the weekend I will run a 5-8KM run to just generally improve my fitness. The key thing i'm learning to improve is my strategy. You dont need to get your whole body over the line, as some people did in my briefing, instead just place one of your legs over the line, and turn around. Secondly, alot of people waste alot of energy at the turn. What I do is as I'm turning I slightly bend my knees and hips and almost 'launch' myself in the other direction. This improved my overall score by almost a level. The final advice I'll give is when you initially turn in the other direction, try and sprint the first few steps as they will make the whole run feel shorter. I have also noticed that after I give up on my bleep test, I always recover completelly within 60-90 seconds. You really need to keep mentally tough and keep going, because at the end of the day, getting from lvl 9 to lvl 10 takes only 60 seconds of running, which could mean a difference between a pass and a fail at Main Board. Just sharing my experience, Dman.
