8.58 best run time,
10 pull ups.
70 sit-ups and pull ups in 2 minutes

would that be enough to pass ADSC for become a PARA?

it will be enough for your 1.5m and pull ups. You are not tested on press ups or sit ups at adsc. You will still have to pass a few other strength and grip tests, a medical examination, you will be examined on teamwork, command potential, and attitude. So in a word, No :)
but if you have your head on straight you should be fine.
Do you have a date yet?

oh my god I ran a 9:40!

I think I'm over training, lately my times have been getting higher and higher...

But I can't wait to run this again and smash it

I did a 9:06 this morning, I could taste blood when I finished. My lungs were dying... But I still think I can do better by at least 15 seconds
