advice needed

#1 Post by Spetz »

Hey guys, I need some advice regarding my situation. I'm aware of a RMR London selection on 6th July? I really want to hop on to this date, and I plan to contact Bermondsey by this time next week, which is when my A Level exams are over, so I can focus on my application.

My worry is am I physically up to it? At the moment my average scores are:

press ups 45 <2mins
situps 62 <2mins
burpees 25 <1min
pull ups 8 - dead arm lifts

1.5 miles 12.22 (urban road)
2 miles 18.24 (urban road)

I am confident about my muscular endurance, and I know my runnings times are embarrassingly crap, but to be honest I have only being running for 2 weeks and my times are improving every session. In my opinion, I'm pretty certain I can get my 1.5miles down to 10mins and a 3 mile time of 21.45 within the next 2.5 weeks; but am I just kidding myself? Should I go for it just for the experience, and wait another slow 4 months for the selection in October to get it right.

Cheers, Spetz
