How fast can u run 2.5km??Watch
A very similar distance was used to gauge fitness while I was in the Army(2.4km or 1.5 miles). The last one I attempted I got 8:15. I've since left though and so my time will no doubt have dipped a good bit.The fact that you're out running means that you're on the right path. I found fitness to just be one big grind - consistently chip away at it and push your self a little and you'll make headway gradually.
believe me, you're doing better than at least one person already
Now my 2.4 time is closer to 8.30 but I am 82 kg as I've packed on a lot more mass.
You can improve your 2.4 time really quickly. Just keep running that's all there is to it. Would have recruits start Basic doing it in 18/19 minutes and by the end of it after 12 weeks they'd be sub 9.45
I have it on the 15th April 2020 so I hopefully will pass. The hard part are the press ups straight after
For male, I'd say 13min is average for being fit and 15min for female but the RAF look for the people who go over and beyond
