ippt 2.4km training: back to the drawing board

31 Jan

last weekend i took my ippt.

after several weekly 2.4km-specific training sessions, i thought i would at least improve from last year’s timing, which was about 11min30sec-odd…

but i didn’t.

in fact i did several seconds worse than last year.

my training was flawed.

so it’s back to the drawing board for me. i will have to increase the training frequency for my 2.4km practice runs, prolly from once a week (^^;) to 3 times a week, alternating interval training sessions with regular runs. i think i’ll make my next attempt at maju fcc, so i wouldn’t need to worry about not being able to run if it rains.

    HEy check this out , got this from NS portal on the new IPT system. Entry requirement need to be in that IPT and subsequent PPT band width to meet.

    thanks! i was wondering how they were going to strike the balance between letting more people pass and making the training meaningful.
