In terms of getting fit for service (TA - but I want to get fit so I'm using their targets anyway even if I decide against signing up) what's the best pattern for Running and Resistance training? Currently, I'm doing a 20-30 minute run followed by resistance training - free weights - every other day. However, I'm bl**dy knackered by the time I'm done and I feel cr*p the next day and I'm wondering if I'm overdoing it. Am I better off doing weights/running on alternating days? If so, what's the best way to warm up before doing weights? My target for running is to sustain a 7 minute mile (I.e. the 13:30 mile-and-a-half run) for about 4-5 miles - my dad was sustaining it for 19 miles when he was in his mid-to-late-thirties and training for the marathon, so if he can do it so can I, I'm only 28 Less sure about targets for resistance training - I know it's heaves/situps for the armed forces fitness tests, so if someone can give me some guidange on good targets that will mean I can do the fitness tests comfortably then I'd appreciate it. (I'd like to aim for "green" rather than an "yellow" pass. Not fussed if I don't get green on the day though as long as I'm that sort of level - more of a personal target) Oh, and anyone know if the fact I've got f**ked back teeth as a result of wisdom teeth coming through when there wasn't enough space is going to be a problem at the very first medical? (Teeth at the back are all broken up, but they're dead so they don't bother me and I've never bothered having them taken out. They don't take out wisdom teeth any more before they come through any more, because the general anathetic (Sp?) is too risky. Because of where I've come in the cycle, I get to have a medical in only a week and a couple of days, despite only turning up for the first time last week - not enough time to get them sorted) Thanks.
