Hi all, im joining the royal signals and passed my RSW last weekend. The thing is i had a real bad chest infection 3 weeks ago that knocked me off my feet (literally) for nearly 10 days. Ever since i recovered my run times have been crap, im 29 years old, fit and came in at 14m for my 1.5 mile. I was disgusted with myself as i know i can do better, however i seem to have real trouble settling into a nice pace for the 1.5mile I understand that im going to have to do the 1.5m again during p1 and they expect an improvement, its just since i did so crap at my RSW my confidence has taken a knock. I dont seem able to control my breathing very well, and although i have been running prior to my chest infection and my RSW im really worried im gonna get in trouble during the 1.5m during p1, ive got my weekend 2 next week (1st after RSW). Funny thing is, i quit smoking in the new year and am still not smoking and since then ive had nothing but problems! Any advice would be great, and i apologise for raising the running thing again i didnt want to bump any ages old posts!
