In the next couple of weeks I'll be doing the fitness test to join the police. I'm an older applicant so have 16 mins to do the 1 1/2 mile run. I've been training for a while and really enjoying it but my time has been shocking, basically I'm rubbish at running. My time has been a lot better recently and although I'm just ove ther 16 min time limit I've been thinking that the adrenalin will take over on the day.
The last few times I've been out, however, I've really struggled and I'm getting a cram like pain in my lower legs, especially in my cool down walk. Today I only managed 1 mile and I could hardly walk after this.
Has anyone any idea whats going on and if there are any suppliments I can take to help. I'm now starting to really worry about the actual test so is there anything I can take on the day to give me a boost.
