Thanks

As this was my first Paras10 it was more of a recce and I underestimated the hills, especially the longer one. Still my stopwatch said 2hr 2mins and 30 seconds, so well pleased with my first effort.

4 Para Recruit Fitness Programme

Any ideas ? Also I can no longer find the posting. Note - the 2 mile best effort with 45lb bergen, boots and h...

Giving Paras 10 a go this Sept

Hi, I'm also 44 and giving the Para 10 a go. Fitness trashed in 2008 due to 3 month chest infection and work pressures, so looking forward to 2009 fitness buildup.
