Hi all, I have got a 20m multi-stage fitness test to do in a week and half. I have to get level 9 carring a weighted vest then a 20-30min rest and level 9 without.
I don't usually do a lot of running, mainly hill walking/mountaineering so thankfully I'm not starting from scratch totally, carido wise. I did my sort of first run in preperation for the test last Wednesday, 2.7 miles with hills in just under 30min then on Thursday I did 0.9 miles with a incline in 7 minutes which was very hard, last night I did 5.2 miles in (probably) just under a hour which I found to be not too bad, I haven't ran that distance in about 4 years. I'm not sure if to rest tonight or try and get to level 9 on the tread mill with a small incline, I'm flapping about it to be honest, hence the post!
I know I haven't got much time but I'm not sure what to do, how to eat or anything.
I'm 20 and weigh 92kg ish 5' 10 in height
Should I run tonight?
I've been dieting, eating mainly meat and fruit, is this a good idea or should I be eating carbs?
and what do you recomend eating/drinking before/morning of the test and half way through?
