Hi fellas, I know i will probably get a few people scoffing at this, or saying "back in my day people we much fitter" etc etc, which i take on board, but i just want some basic advice. Basically i have my AOSB briefing in roughly 11 weeks. Fitness wise we are looking at a MSFT (beep test) to level 10.2 and an individual assault course, so nothing majorly taxing physically (says he asking the following). I am informed that level 10.2 on the MSFT equates to running 1.5 miles in around 10.5 minutes (however i am unsure on just how accurate this is). At the gym i.e. on a treadmill, i have been hitting 1.6 miles in that time (yes i know, slow...). However would i be better off turning my attention to running outside instead of the gym? I have yet to get my hands on a copy of the beep test, so i haven't been able to practise. Furthermore does anyone have any tips for beep tests? (I have heard of people having discrepancies between their 1.5mile run and the level they eventually get on the MSFT). Over this 11 week period what type of progess can i be expected to make on my 1.5 mile time? I want to have a ball park figure to be aiming for. How often per week should i be giving my best effort on the 1.5mile? Thanks for any constructive advice. Sounds like i'm splitting hairs i know, but i don't want to wing up to the AOSB physically weaker than the other candidates and looking like a twat.
