please can anyone advise me, esp if f you have recently completed training, or instructed at an ATR. MY afco are just not interested anymore since i have my date to join so wont answer my questions.one sgt even told me to stop running, and use x-t machine only. what are the 'real' fitness standards. i find it hard to believe all i have to do is run 1.5miles in 11.30 when i get there(and im employment group 3 which is 12.45). im currently running 3-4 miles every other day at 8min mile pace and followed by bike or crosstrainer for 15 mins, then weights or pressups-45/chins-15/situps-55. is this enough? i just want to pass without remedial pt etc.id prefer to postpone date if not fit enough. and should i start running in boots? im supposed to be starting in 4 weeks. any tips much appreciated.oh and btw any useful kit i should buy(if allowed to use) before i go to ATR. Many thanks.sorry if questions seem a bit basic.
