I have 6 days to go till RSC.I have been training since April but was taken out with food poisoning last week and today was day 1 back after the bout of illness. I could not even run the mile and a half and today was the first run in almost 9 days I was in agony with stiches and tight chest... is this normal after a week out of training .. usually I run mile and half in 11.30 ish but with less than a week to go what has happened??!! I have decided to OD my self with water the next 24 hours as I may be dehydrated ... any one got any tips for me. I am gunna run like a mob of angry zombies are running after me every day till tuesday now and really work it out..... argh!!! wat a let down :-( If i run like i did today at RSC i will fail out right as the time was disgusting for someone who has been training for the past 3 months!!!

If you normally did it in 9.30'ish I maybe would have some sympathy...

You have just had a really bad illness. your body needs time to recover. stressing will not make it better and neither will pushing your self like a tw@t

Take it day at a time, eat well, drink well and just do some run,walk training. ignore the times for now, it will not do you anygood.

And alternate your cardio workouts. try some swimming in between.

Keep me posted mate! good luck! but do NOT stress. it'll make it worse

11 mins 30....do you crawl?
When I first started running back end of april I was running it in 13.30 and i have run it in 10.15 back when i initially put my first application in 2 years ago. So i am quite happy with my improvement atm. I know I can do better but it does take time ... Bear in mind I am female and not male and that I got a max of 14 mins at RSC next week although I know I can run it in sub 11 and I will run my arse off next week

Stop and let your body recover... do a light jog the day before the test, then suck it up and kick ass when it counts.

I had lots of applicants in the same boat and my advice to you is to go into your Recruiter and ask him to delay your RSC date. He can phone ADSC allocations and ask for another date a week or so later which will be better for you both for medical and fitness reasons. If your body isnt 100% your more likely to have heart murmor and not do your best on the fitness. Wont be a problem and if your Recruiter is like I was (and many others) would agree with me.

don't hammer yourself. you get no prizes for it just pass and then build on that result.

It wasn't criticism, Frankie, it was acknowledgement that female recruits have lower entry requirements to males.

Although that, in itself, could be construed as criticism. But I'm sure it wasn't meant in that manner.

Frankie, the odd day you will get a sh!tter time, as long as the trend is improving. Also I garauntee ( sorry if I miss spelt that) that when you are running with other people at RSC and the adrenalin, you will get the quickest time you will have done so far! So dont delay your dates!

Call the RSC and delay the entrance test. After all the bods at the RSC want to see what you can do in controlled circumstances (that's why you get the whole "loads of rest, no alcohol for 48hrs before selection etc" letter). This is not possible while suffering from an illness, so the tests would be a poor indicator of the potential recruits, um, potential.

Bollocks Frankie, suck it up girl. You are joining the RMP, you can't knock it on the head when things get a little tough, you need to crack on. I mean this both Morally and Physically.

Good luck on the test, give it your level best. If it isn't your best time - whatever - you will pass and in is in. Then concentrate on improving whilst you are there.

All the best.

Heed.
