Hello all, I'm new to the Forum but thoughit would be the prefect place to get advice. As part of a job interview, I have to do "The Bleep Test" or Multi Stage Fitness Test. Most of you wil have heard of this painful test and almost all who have done on in the past will fear them.

I've been running on roads and on the bridleways around my house now for around 4 weeks. I'm looking for any advice as to what I should be doing other than just running 5K after 5K after 5K. Should I be in the gym? Should I be eating cake and drinking bitter?

Please help.

Ginger Tom: The bleep test is supposed to be an official measure of your VO2 max. The idea is that you run a measured distance within a specified time. So basically, a bleep sounds, and you run the distance specified. The idea is that you get to the end before the next bleep sounds. When the next bleep sounds you set off again. And obviously the time between the bleeps gets shorter, requiring you to run faster.

I found it a real struggle as I'm really good at plodding for hours but I just can't sprint!

Matt - this has been discussed at length here - search for Bleep test and we had a big thread about it in great detail about 2 months back ?

Good luck !!
