Dear all, I have just joined the TA, and am concentrating on getting fit. My current 1.5 mile run time is 13 mins, which although is good enough to get me in, is still shocking to me! My question is that as a 36 year old bloke, weighing 15 stone (although I'm not overly fat) who has trained on and off and always been active, what should I aim for in terms of respectable fitness? Although age wise for joining I am ancient, its something I have always wanted to do. A whole load of life issues got in the way previously, but now I am here I want to give it my all. Paramount to this is obviously being as fit as possible, but what is realistic? Thanks for your advice.
