What got you fit for the paras?

#1 Post by LemonAndHerb99 »

Bonjour fellas. First post so forgive me, I'm 17 and absolutely hate my job so I want to join the paras ASAP however my cardio is not up to scratch and am looking for some tips on what I should do for training. I am aiming for a 9 minute 1.5 mile time before I apply just to be on the safe side. If there are any currently serving paras or ex-paras can you please tell me what you did to get fit to join because at the end of the day if it works for you Im happy to give it a go. :2gunfire: cheers ladies
