Well basically I'm applying for the navy soon and the actual job I'm after is Clearance Diver. These guys are very fit because of the physical demand the job requires.
I need to do 2.4k in 9mins, 50 push ups, 120sit ups, 18 chin ups and a 500m swim with fins on.
The push ups, sit ups and chin ups don't really bother me at all.. I think I'm fairly comfortable with that. It's mainly the run and the swim that's worrying me. I was just after the best training method to get 2.4k in 9mins.
I've got a brand new treadmill that can run up to 16km/h with hill incline. I've been running at 10km/h for 15minutes each day but I really want to smash the 2.4k in 9mins so I'm ahead of the class so to speak.
I know world records are like 4mins and my cousin was doing 2.4k in about 6mins 30, so I'd probably be aiming for around 6mins 30 as well. I've got about 5-6 months to train for this so I'm confident that 2.4k in 6mins 30 is possible if I run every day which at my age (17) shouldn't be a problem.
