I think I'm at about8-8.5 minutes per mile possibly a bit less than 8...for 1 mile then it gets bad.

Start running more. You need to run two miles in 13 mins or less. What you run right now is just meeting Army standards. You also need to be able to do 73 push-ups and 78 sit-ups. Start exercising. Add pull-ups as well. The better you do early on, the easier it will go for you down the road. You could sit at Benning for a month waiting for an open slot for Airborne and Ranger schools, or you could go straight from your AIT or leave.

I do pushups, pull ups, burpees, etc. all the time. Just need to get my running down. It'll get better as I have a training partner now.

Here's another thing-while in the military, when you take PT tests you will be sore from prior PT training.

Therefore, you will need to be able to do perfect form pushups, situps, pullups and running (meeting the standard)all while you are sore as hell...so when you are fresh you need to be exceeding the minimum.

A good point is to ensure you are doing army standard pushups. Or if you are used to wha tyou think it right it could be a rude awaeking when you hear, 1, 1, 1, 1, and you done 20 push ups your way and it ain't even one the army way. Same thing for situps. But that is mainly when taking the PT test....

Yes, get the 21-20 standard from your recuiter. FM 21-20 is the Army Physical Fitness Training and Testing Manual. If you do everything close to standard from the start, it's a lot easier on the PT test.

Congrats and good luck.

You say 'next august'. Is that optional or is the waiting list so long?
