    I hae a physical agility test June 30 for a job and I am never going to pass it. 1.5 miles in like 13 mins. A 300 meter sprint. Push ups and situps (which I am fine for) and a vertical leap.

    I started on the treadmill but am NO WHERE near the pace I need to be. I am doing jump squats with weights for the vertical leap and reps for the puh/sit ups. But I need to get my 1.5 mile and 300 meter up to snuff by June 30 and I don't know how. I do know, that it can be done with the help of you fone cpnditioned athletes...

    ...I thought you were a lawyer Matty?

    avoid jumping with weight you may hurt yourself. the only thing that will increase your running ability is running.

    I am a lawyer. I'm looking for a career change for a bit. Been in Prosecution since I started practicing law. Now I'm looking to hit the streets for a bit. The desk is killing me.

    diet wise? cardio wise there really isn't alot to it, run, run faster, run faster.

    diet wise I can help, and others, go make a post in D&S with your diet and read the FAQ there too.

    yeah for police

    Oh and a 75 yard pursuit run. Its a somewhat elite agency, which is the only one I am applying to or it is a complete waste of my law degree and bar admission.
