View Full Version : Police Academy 1.5 mile run! help?

12-07-2012, 11:27 PM
Hey all, I first wanted to say thank you all, as you all have helped me out of dire situations with my X2! With that being said, I have always aspired to be a police officer or deputy, but it has been a long time since I've been in good shape. The requirement for Iowa Law Enforcement Academy is 1.5 miles in 12:51 for my age group, and currently I'm nowhere close to that. I can only run about 3/10 mile before I need to stop, and that is pushing myself! My current mile time is terrible, around 12:30-13:00 if I push myself! I have been running, diligently, a couple of weeks now and have already gotten better. I was running about 14:30-15:00 when I started, which is downright embarrasing...I know...I know that a lot of you are avid runners, and some are already part of the blue brotherhood (or FFs as well), do any of you guys have any pointers for me? I greatly appreciate it in advance! :D
