I have only just seen this so it might be a bit late - but for anyone else I suggest looking at a free ebook called pace 6.40 - its aimed at people joining the army but gives a complete guide to getting your 1.5 mile running time to under 10 minutes... the link is http://armyfitnesstest.co.uk/pace-6-40-ebook/
I hope its useful - I don´t have a test but used it to get better at running. Good Luck
Hi - I saw you are trying to get "Army Fit" - There is a website that offers a great training plan to improve fitness and running ability. the main website is www.armyfitnesstest.co.uk and they have a free ebook, and lots of other posts aimed at passing selection tests - I thought it may be of use to you or someone else looking for something similar!
I realise that this post was written a long time ago but for anyone who is looking for information about the British Army Fitness Tests and Selection, there is a great website that tells you all the tests, the required running times and provides training plans aimed at passing selection - thought they might be useful to someone else! it´s www.armyfitnesstest.co.uk
I just read this post and although you are looking to join the RAF, there is a good site that is focused on The Army physical tests and how to improve your fitness for selection. They have a guide on training for the Bleep test and some Interval training ideas - www.armyfitnesstest.co.uk - hope it´s useful!
Hi Everyone - There is a new website that has a lot of resources for people who are joining or considering The Army. It has details on all the physical tests for selection and a lot of resources for getting to the required level of fitness. www.armyfitnesstest.co.uk
