tips on running

#1
I was just wondering if anyone could please help me out with some running tips. I run 1.6 in 10:02 but have been doing for about 3 weeks now. I go for selection next monday so i only have just under a week to try and improve my times. I run 1.6 mile on even ground with some short sprints in between. Has anyone got any ideas on how to improve. Cheers. Spiny.

Your time is good enough to get in methinks, i'm sure you will improve in basic. A wee is not enough time to get it any quicker though

mate it's easier on the day, the PTI sets the pace so just keep in line with him/her and you'll be sound.

breathing wise (I had a lil trouble) I was told when you breath out it can help if you act like your blowing out a candle as it empties your lungs of air more and if you try to breath out on the left foot I think. but on the day its a lot easier with either a group of you or a pti shouting at you.

Best of luck

No PTI setting the pace at Glencorse! Just a load of girls who're faster than me!!! :D

I was doing my 1.5 before recruit selection in about 10.15 to 10.30. On the day with everyone there i done it in 9.50.

I don't recall any PTI running the route on my selection at Pirbright, they all stood around the start and let us go off having warmed us up.

Would have preferred a PTI to beast me round, to be honest.

Dont worry to much mate, you're already running a good time and your obviously keeping your fitness levels up. As iceman said you'll also have the adrenalin giving you a boost.

Good luck at selection.

Go down to your local Gypsy camp and buy yourself two half starved Pit-Bulls. When you go for your next run, get a mucker to let them off the lead and chase after you. You be running a sub 7 minute BFT in no time.

Run it uphill to train. Then its easy when you test.
