Hey guys, i'v been lurking for a few months and thought i'd jump in with a hello and a summary of my application. My names Danny and i'm 23 and after 3 years of working for Asda i decided i needed to do something with my life and decided the best bet for a decent career would be the Army, took me a few months to actualy pick up an application after toying with the idea and maybe another month to submit it but glad i eventualy did, i'm hoping to join the AAC, i got 77 on my BARB and passed my Medical Check a few weeks ago. Today i attended a Pre-selection fitness test and am somewhat disapointed, i passed the grip test barely, they slipped to my fingertips on the last set but more horrficialy i got 11:51 on my run, which is disgraceful, i'm glad i finished, one guy dropped out which didn't look too good. I think i stupidly opted in for the next Pre-Selection which is only 2 weeks away, do you guys think if its even possible to use these 2 weeks to train to a decent time or am i wasting peoples time and should train for abit longer for attempt #2? I'm 110% willing to put the effort in, today was a big wake up call for me and i need to pull my finger out. Thanks for reading! On a side note has anyone heard of HIIT? 30 secounds light jogging then 15 secounds of sprinting, i think about 6-8 reps, any point is this training for the 1.5 mile?
