Re: Bog Cleaner's Training Log
At age 23 we had a para train us for a few weeks in pre-season. He gave us a fitness test and then repeated it 3 weeks later to see how we had improved. I remember my stats from back then:
1.5 mile run - 9.06 (I won this part of the test, at the time I was doing some running with a mate of mine who used to run for Wales, he was a 800m runner who had a PB of 1.55 at age eighteen).
Press - ups in 2 min - 85
Sit - ups in 2 min - 55
I will do this again soon just to see where I am at, I predict I will be quite a way down on those scores particularly the running.
