Hi, I know im going to get alot of stick for this but here goes... I am hoping to join the army soon (Royal Engineers) my fitness seems to be getting alot better and i am definitely getting alot stronger and i feel alot fitter but I'm having a bit of trouble with the running side of my preparation for ADSC I can barely finish the 1.5 Mile run in under 14:30 mins and I cant even imagine myself running any further than that! I would like to get a few long distance runs in as well but i cant see myself being able to do them as the 1.5 mile takes it out of me enough as it is, the only thing i can put it down to is that i must be practicing an incorrect technique. Does anyone have any tips on anything that may help eg, pace, breathing etc. to bring my dismal time down to a more respectable one and also maybe help my endurance so that i can run for longer without getting knackerd! ha ha thanks.
