Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have a new found respect for bigger lads that get themselves running and get good times. When I was in the TA I weighed 11.5-12 stone and my PFT's were all around the 8:30 mark.
    That was 5 years ago, since then I've started playing rugby and gotten much bigger 13.5-14 stone now I'm applying to join the regs I've started running again and It's a lot harder than I remeber, I certainly cant keep striding like I used to.
    I haven't done a 1.5 mile run recently but today I done 2.156 miles in 15:43, which was at around an 11:45 pace for the PFT... ouch!

    Any advice?
  2. Maybe try and lose a bit of weight and keep on running.I think this is the best way to lower your run time.hope this helps :D
