Best person to ask is the careers centre? They should be able to tell you a rough guide as to what level you need to be at.
From what I've seen on my fitness forms, you're required to run 1.5 miles in 10.30 and under.... So I guess either way you look at it, you need to dig a little deeper and find that 2 mins somewhere.

11 mins? The AGC (SPS) Corp is awaiting your arrival.

Sliding into your pink slippers upon entry, you'll quickly learn the art of making a brew and sneaking off for a fag break every 15 minutes.

You'll feel 'one of the team' with a comfy green beret snugly placed around your head, confirming your identity as a Pen Commando.

A love of numbers is liked, but clearly not essential as you balls up the pay of all and sundry only to blame it on 'Glasgow'.

11 mins? Let's make it 13, whats 2 minutes between friends? There's no need to stress over PT as you are, of course, on 'essential duties'.

At the end of your 22, you'll probably be a looking at a Warrant Officer pension, and thats not all you'll be leaving with: How about a brand new Army issued ass? No other branch of the British Military could provide it's personnel with such a huge rumpus.

And if you join this month, we'll throw in a nervous disposition!!! Essential for all Combat Human Resourse Personnel!

We look forward to your arrival!

Hark at the civvy kicking off. :roll:

11 minutes is the sort of time reserved for disabled chefs, fat wobbly clerks and speshul people who aren't allowed sharp objects. The only chance you have of getting a time of 9 minutes is by jumping on a Zundapp.

Suggest you saw your legs off and roll for 1.5 miles, tubby.

Ash91 - have you thought of using the "search" function?

Having said that I think Flash and the chaps put it better!

Ash, just go ask your local careers office.... If you've recieved any info for your barb test date etc, go look at your careers advisors name and ask to speak to them. If they're unavailable, just say "look mate, I'm currently in the process of applying for the army, got a bit of a stupid question but would you be able to tell me the optimum run time at selection for the paras?"

Not difficult.... I know the regiments I'm after, look for the 11.30 min mark for the women.
I was so unfit in the begining I was hitting 16 mins (might be an exageration) now I hit the 11.48 min mark. So keep your chin up and work at it.
Currently at the moment from what my little information letter says, you're out of the run time for men anyway, you've gotta knock it down a tad.
Also learn a little bit of respect people!

Ash, loving your signature block - you are definately the loudest one in the room. Jog on (a little faster this time as you are looking for 9.5 mins).

It had the word "PEOPLE" in it... Meaning more than one person....

Why ask? Look at replies/posts and think about what you'd find offensive, hardly difficult?

As someone previously said earlier, use the search facility BUT in your case use your reading capabilities.

Yes I'm a civvie getting "gobby" before someone points out the obvious and I get torn an new bumhole.

Trust me, fucknuts. I don't find anything offensive.

Apart from gobshite civpop spouting dog-poo from their keyboards. Do us a favour and fuck off back to the youth club will you?

"Trust me, fucknuts. I don't find anything offensive.

Bit hypocritical?
Kinda chirped me that no-one advised Ash anything other than to point out he's a plonker.... Which is really helpful.
Then I found it funny for Ash to get I'm assuming "wound up" and become a gobshite.
Then I found it overly amusing cause I learn that you jump on my bones because I pointed out the obvious by saying "learn alittle respect" which I might add refered to everyone.
No matter whether you're in the forces or a civvie everyone deserves to be spoken to accordingly. So get off your box and look in the mirror.

I'd really hate to respond in too much of a nasty way to you, misseh. I'd be worried you'd chuck a load of pills down your neck in an act of 'depression'. Dull cunt.

Remember. Cut along the wrists, not across them. ;)

Run four days a week

Every week get down to a track or work out on the net a 1.5 stretch of road. Do a warm up and work out where your at and be blowing out your krassberry at the end.

When i started 6 months ago i couldn't even do 1.5 mile. Blowing out my ass after 300 metres.

On a monday- do your PFT 1.5 miler etc all that shite

Wednesday- Interval Training. Find the biggest fuking hill and run up it 15 times and walk down. Don't worry about the cnuts who think your mad.

Friday- 3 miler

Saturday- 3 miler

and any other classes you can get at a gym. I started at 14.30 and now breaking a sub 9 min mile and a half.

In all fairness days go by when you can't be fked but if you want it badly you'll go and run 6 milers instead of 3 milers. Most of my mates think I'm barking but their all fat cnuts anyway.

good luck!
