Just curious what people's training routines were/are like to prepare for Raleigh, and how you split your week up in terms of swimming/running/strength style workouts?

Mine was working the markets, climbing onto factory roofs, doing a paper round, playing ‘knock door run’ and shoplifting.

Hope this helps.

Not much, but then it was 1963 after all, different times, different mob and most young people were much fitter with less take away etc. around.

@lifeatsea Getting fit for Raleigh has been covered many many times on this forum but one thing is clear that whatever regime you decide on it has to be tailored to suite yourself. Some can swim like an eel but can't run while other can do 50 press-ups and can only manage a doggy-paddle in the shallow end. Focus on your short comings but not to the point where you forsake everything else.
Here is your starter for 10

I'm at Raleigh right now. Regular workouts will help you in PT. The 1.5 miler RNFA (maximum 13:56 for young males) is easy, but do lots of running beforehand. Aim for under 11 minutes as you'll need to do the RNFT in 11:09 or under in week 5.

Practice press-ups, burpees, squat thrusts, star jumps and bear crawls. PTIs love them. Definitely incorporate swimming as well, as you have the NST and swim IMF sessions
