2.4km Run

Just the odd 4-5 mile run 3 or so times a week, I'm lucky in that I've never found running that difficult. I'm a proper fanny in the weights bay though, always have been. :strong:

There was a guy on my LRCC in 2002 that managed about 7:15. He was a fcuking animal.
Im 8:10 but im 16, so its easyer for me lol. Also im training for the royal marines and seaman spec. on my application i put seaman spec but i asked that i wanna be a royal marine. Anyway i know i change.... but i have one life and why not see if i can do it, no harm in trying.

Hi, Im going to BRNC in 3 weeks - my 2.4k atm is 11.40 - although my latest was 11.50 :(

I'm built for muscle and swimming rather than running, but I'm pushing on as hard as I can.

Do it on the road - it will help you a lot more than running it on a treadmill
I was an instructor at RNSLAM and used to do the 2.4Km with the LRLC course. I was 36 and used to 'jog' round in 9 minutes. Then, because I was the Chief I slowed down to 11 minutes to act as a rabbit for the border line cases. In those days you failed the course if you couldn't complete it on time. It also gave the course a boost if they could beat the Chief! Oh yeah most of the people on the course were under 25.
I'm 16 and a big build..running it around 11 minutes.

Still improving, the first time i did it about 6 months ago i was getting around 14 minutes. Progress is steady :thumright:


Sentashi; at 15, you'd be lucky to see me run 1600m, let alone 2400m. Fitness takes time. Dont rush it as has already been stated, it will come.

To clarify, I couldnt run 2.4km period when I was 15. I can now do it in 9 minutes. Not fast but Im not exactly built for running, much to my annoyance.
im 19 now i couldnt run 1500m when i was 15 my running was gash then its true it takes time don't rush it your still developing and pushing to hard can cause damage to your body so try to progress steadly :)
