Hi, I'm going to join the Royal Marines in 2 years time and I run 3 miles, every time I run.
Here's my overral training regime:
Monday: Running for 3 milesFull body workout/Compound exercisesTuesday: Running for 3 milesRowing for 30 minutesSwimming – 10 lengths of freestyle 10 lengths of breaststroke Wednesday: Rowing for 30 minutesSwimming – 10 lengths of freestyle10 lengths of breaststrokeFull body workout/Compound exercises Thursday: Running for 3 milesRowing for 30 minutesSwimming – 10 lengths of freestyle 10 lengths of breaststrokeFriday: Bergen workout Full body workout/Compound exercisesSaturday: Swimming – 10 lengths of breaststroke10 lengths of freestyleRowing for 40 minutesSunday: Rest day
I'll vary my running routine in two weeks time, as I'll be running for a month then and my stamina would be better.
Is this routine fine? I'm not trying to get any aesthetic goals, I just want to be fit as I'm happy with how my body looks.
I would love to get my 1.5 mile times down to 7 minutes by the time I'm 18 (I'm turning 16 in November).
Is my training regime good for my goal?
Can I bring my 1.5 mile time, a measly 16 minutes, down to 7 minutes in two years?
I eat normally like most people in the UK, I don't have a healthy diet. Will this affect my performance, as I'm assuming that fitness and being healthy are different things?
Hopefully I can run a 5k marathon in January, will this be possible?
Thank you, Akshay.
