    Alright :D ,

    Can anyone who has recently joined the paras tell me what I can do to help prepare for fitness and what level of fitness they expect u to be at depot? Should u be able to run 8 miles?

    I know they expect u to be able to run 1.5 miles in 9 minutes and 80 press-ups/sit-ups in two minutes but what kind of endurance runs should I be doing :?
    any Opinions from paras would be much appreciated :D
