Hi I'm new to this site and it is great - there's so many good tips here!
Anyway I've been running for the first time ever (not including school and football), and I'm proud of my running time: 3 miles in 30 minutes. So that's 6 mph/1 mile every 10 minutes, I was running and when I got tired I started to walk, but I've never felt better - it was great.
Is this OK if I walk when I get out of breath, even though I'm a beginner to this?
My goal is to join the Parachute Regiment in the British Army, I'm 15 (one month left till I'm 16) so I have 2 years left to join as an officer. I want my 1.5 mile time to be sub 9 minutes. Is this possible, to get from a 1.5 mle time of 15 minutes to a 1.5 mile time of sub 9 minutes in 2 years?
I've ran one day this week and I'm going to run 2 more this week, because my legs were hurting today and I want to be fully recovered when running. Is this fine? But after the first 2 weeks I'll raise 3 days running to 5 days.
I'm running 3 miles on all three days, could you please tell me any more routines especially those that would help me join the Parachute Regiment.
Thank you, Akshay.
