    I was wondering what standard of fitness to aim for before going to Halton for the 10 weeks.

    By that I mean: (min/max)
    Amount of press ups I should be able to do?
    How many miles I should run and at what mph?
    Etc.

    This would be very helpful information as I can train towards a target and be as fit as I can.

    Halton is not very physically demanding so as long as you can pass the entry standards I wouldn't worry about it. However it's good to aim to be as fit as you can.

    More than fit enough for Halton. But keep up the hard work!

    Thanks for letting me know, my main concern was doing the group 1/2/3 runs.

    Do you know what pace/mph these will be done at?

    They will vary. Really not something to bother even trying to remember.

    Simple advise is to get as fit as possible. Then keep on exercising.

    Why anyone would do anything else is beyond me... ( I only say that because reading a "how fit should I be?" question implies that you'd get to a point and then stop, which I'm sure we'd all agree would be stupid).

    I see what you are trying to say but it's nice to have a target rather than just guessing how fit I should be. Trust me I haven't and wouldn't stop training. It's peace of mind that's all.

    Yeah, but the thing is you've done that already by passing the fitness tests in selection.

    So us saying "just keep on getting fit" is probably the best advice you'd get. I'm not sure what you expect beyond that...? It just seems like you're worrying over the minutiae.
