Wondering if there's anyone on here who can help me?
I've applied to join the TA as a Musician and have to be able to complete the army fitness tests one of which is to run 1.5 miles in less than 14mins. Whilst I would consider my fitness levels to be quite good (workout out 4-5 times a week) I have never been able to run!!
I'm on week 3 and am finding running for 3 minutes quite challenging. There's some great advice on this site including to slow down if it's difficult but I'm panicking a bit because of the need to be able to complete the distance in the alloted time. I seem to be getting slower as the running amount increases - I'm quite a fast walker!
Am I best to complete the program slowly or try to push myself speed wise? x
