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.
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.
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
