Firstly, congratulations on getting your offer. Secondly, as for the distance ran every morning, it varies depending on your staff. Most mornings we did 3.2ish km's. Others the staff blocked off some time and we ended up running 6.4. With that said, at no point should you become comfortable running at a single pace. Always strive to beat your time, run faster and further. You'll never really know just how far or how hard they're going push you. There has been some good advice given on this thread, I'd advise scrolling through the pages and seeing what some of the other members have recommended. Hope this helps. -Badger :cdn:

Thank you for the reply.

Reading the other posts i should be in good enough shape to do well on the course.
Its just a waiting game for me now, unfortunatly there are no selection dates schedualed for avn tech even though there are several positions available the recruiter told me.

Any other training tips to improve are always welcome.
Thanks again

Thanks to the many people with insight and tips on this topic, my running has greatly improved.  I'm running 2.2k in 10 minutes, I'm pushing myself through speed drills, and I'm running 5k comfortably and without issues.  I plan to increase my distance now.  And hopefully with continued effort, the speed drills won't always feel like my lungs want to explode...

I did yesterday 10K in 57 minutes 24 seconds. For man in his 40+ is not bad ?
But I heard  better is to do 10K in 50 minutes
