    Question......Please look

    Ok i have a PT test comming up soon. I have never been a very good runner. My question is: How hard is it to make one complete lap around a regular size track(440yrds) in 1min20sec?

    Is this an all out sprint or a fast jog? Any help would be appreciated.

    Do not sprint at the beginning...but don't think you can hold it all until the end. It is a slow run, but faster than a fast paced jog. I am basing this on the idea that you run about as much as I do...and that ain't much.

    A minute 25 will kick your ass if you just jump into it and don't practice. But that's just me. I ran the 40 in a 4.5 and a mile in 8 minutes hehe. Maybe I'm just lazy when it comes to long distance.

    What is the test for. Here where Im from we have to pass the MCOLES state test to get certified before you can fill out any LE application or apply to the academy. Then again you have to pass this MCOLES state test before you leave the academy. The running part is the shuttle run. You have to run 15 times around two cones, 88 feet apart, one whole trip back and forth equalling one trip in under 5 minutes.

    you should be fine........its not that bad.....a quarter of a mile....if you feel your not a good runner, you might have to sprint most of the way, which is fine since its only a quarter of mile.......i mean if you were running a 5k or 10k you dont sprint in the beginning......but on this, you can sprint the whole way and your'll def. make the cut-off.............let us know how you do!

    But for a fat out of shape powerlifter its pretty tough =-)
