When I last visited my AFCO I was given a training programme to fill in that I should take to Raleigh. Inside you have to write down all the exercise you do in preparation. I have a couple of questions about this, hope someone can shed some light. I have trained at least once a day every day apart from weekeds for nearly four weeks. The programme is for 8 weeks. Like a daft eejit I started from week one instead of week four. When I was given the booklet, my recruiting officer said 'make up the rest' knowing that I had only four weeks until Raleigh. Shall I make it up? Or leave the rest blank? Inside I have to put my best run time for the 2.4km run. So far this is 11 minutes and 25 seconds, though it was a bit comfortable and I could have gone faster. I remember my friend who's in the RAF now saying that they group the crabs for running according to how well they do their 2.4km run. The run I've achieved (or could achieve) isn't bad, it's well over my maximum allowed time. But I am no runner! Am I going to get put into a group that's reasonably good at running? Because I don't know how fast I can do it on a track. How far is the 'distance' run? I can't remember but I think I can remember that I'm supposed to do it an around 50 minutes. And my left shin really hurts. Grr! :evil: Thanks!
