I can do a mile in about 5 and half minutes on the road if i really push myself, thats with a hill in the middle too, which fair to say is pretty steep. if i'm just running normally i do a mile in about 6 minutes and a few seconds over.

@ clintnz, the setting that i had it on (yes it was fair slow - 16km/h - yet it was the fastest the machines went...looking around no one had it on the same setting....strange!!), that works out to about 6 minutes per mile so the instructor said (if i remember correctly!), but like i said it was on a treadmill so i found it alot easier. I think the added 17 seconds where to let the running machine build up the speed to the speed that i needed, not sure though.

1 Mile at 7 min per mile is over 10 minutes for the 1.5

I mean if your desperate becasue you havent got anywhere else to run so you need to bounce up and down instead. They are alot easier than running outside and they arent a good indication of how well you would do during the 3miler in prmc.

So a three page thread on a 3 mile run, hmmmmmm


maybe running the 3 miles instead of reading the 3 pages would be useful.

Or as crock-of-shit-cent says you could read whilst bouncing up and down. :o :lol:

I find Egyptian PT a right killer at the moment and I keep pulling my muscle whilst doing it! Any advice?

Unfortuently for me the girl guides arent recruiting. I failed the 3 miler, though I stayed on for the duration of the PRMC (but failed almost every test). What can I say? I didnt underestimate the course, just didnt train hard enough. In fact, I lost fitness prior to going on the course. And I was already a skinny runt to start with

Though I have to say the warm up before the run itself is quite enjoyable. But its a pain in the arse trying to run accross a fecking rugby pitch in trainers. BUT, ill never forgive myself for dropping out about 200m from the fecking end! That was the most depressing minibus ride ive ever been on (even though I was half dead). What pisses me off the most though is that gym test two was a lot harder and I got through it, even though I struggled a bit.

Ive been on and off running for the past few weeks, but getting nowhere.

15 lads failed the 3 miles on my course, but once the 'dead weight' was gone we were left with a strong troop where more or less everyone who was left passed.
915 trp every womans pet, every mans regret.
