Hey Guyss

Reading through some these posts and I have to say WTF has happened I beleive the 1.5 mile BFT is now done in training shoes? Back in the late 70's and 80's when you run in boots and lightweights (Green Trousers) anyone under a time 8:30 was a wanker or nearing 40 YO

Also there was a high percentage of the Bn regularly getting under 7:30

Magic


Light the blue touch paper and stand well back.....

Fartlek's may help you. But if you're currently at almost 12 minutes, it may not be wise, as you may not be advanced enough. They are pretty difficult.
Give over, it's only running for gods sake. One foot in front of the other, and keep pushing to see how fast you can go, or how long you can go. It's not rocket science.

It is also about levels. If someone is struggling to do a mile and a half in under 10.30 then they are definitely going to struggle doing fartleks. They need to improve their general running ability before going on to do them seriously.

I'm sure they will take on your expert advice of just putting one foot in front of the other though. Superb!
