Run time

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm not to sure if this is in the right sub forum but here I go anyway. My mile and a half run time is currently 09:49 and I'm aiming to get this down to 08:30 in 4 weeks. I do interval training and loads of hill reps. If any pti's are reading could you give me some training tips and is getting my time down to 08:30 in 4 weeks achievable?
     
  2. It is achievable. You might want to look at getting some fartlek and speed training in there as well.
     
  3. It depends how hard you went to get your 9:49 time. You can see some significant training effect in 4 weeks; whether it is enough to knock 80 secs off your time will be up to you. The most significant gain will inevitably be phychological; my advice would be to get used to running 1.5 miles at target pace. Start slowly, you'll be surprised at how managable the pace can be if you, well, pace yourself.
