Hi All,

I completed my Diver medical yesterday and am now waiting for my fitness test date

Any tips on ways to get my time down on 1.5mile. I last ran it in 10:48 still above that 10:30 mark needed

Cheers

Just keep running! I would make sure you're practising on treadmills as well as roads and I found in the end the best way to get my timing down was to perfect breathing techniques. It's finding the balance of not thinking about it too much but also making sure it's working for you! There are plenty of tips on this site, but it's more or less practice makes perfect and getting to know your body and it's capabilities!

Good luck :)

Taa, I feel like I could run for ages but I get so damn bored, worst thing, need something to take my mind of the whole scenario.

Honestly, when you're there doing the test the time just goes. Adrenalin kicks in etc... I was in and out. I found repeating in your head 'it's like 10mins of your life' also helped :D

Run lots, build mileage up and the pace will increase as you get fitter. Throw in intervals/threshold/fartlek/hill training sessions.

Mostly when it comes to it just go for it, it's 10 mins and 30 secs of hard work minimum.

Keep smashing them out [emoji188][emoji125]

Yeah, just wondering what usual waiting times are really...
i passed my medical the Saturday (24th) just gone, this morning Thursday 29th i received the paper work for my fitness, so i just had to call the fitness center where i will be doing my fitness test and booked in for my test. i booked in for November 17th but i could have booked it for sooner, however i decided to give myself an extra couple weeks to just smash out some more fitness before the test.

after receiving your letter saying you have passed your medical and need to book a physical test, You HAVE to book and take the test within 28 days.
