RMR Selection Weekend

Hi Guys

I have been told that the next selection weekend coming up is in Novemebr (Bristol)and i just need some reassurance that my training is going in the right direction.

Basically i am running about 3 times a week and running between 4 and 6 miles a time. For the shorter distances i'm running 7 minute miles and for the longer distances 7.5 minute miles. Is this quick enough? I've read that i should be aiming for 6.5 minute miles.

I am also working on my upper body strength can do around 40 press ups, 50 situps and 3 pull ups. Is this strong enough to pass the selection weekend. I know i have got a few months to go yet so by November i hope i should be able to push out a few more.

Any good advice will be greatly reveived!

Good grief you may well be the poster of the month.
Keep this up and you'll be on the path to 'Liddedness' in short order.
I wont be along as I'm too old and sensible now to be playing soldiers anymore, Good luck to you though.
