The green checkmark next to the CFA on my portal turned yellow yesterday (it was green) and I personally had a hunch about the whole thing Here were my scores BB throw - 74 ft Shuttle run - 9.1 sec Push ups - 45 Sit ups - 63 Pull ups - 8 Mile run - 8:35 Yeeaaaah I'm kind of scared now. Obviously the events that failed me were the push ups, sit ups, and the mile I have an LOA. I have a nomination. Medically qualified at the beginning of this year. The CFA is THE last thing and it should be noted that I have until Jan 23, 2010 to complete my file or... I won't speak the unspeakable. Anyway, I still need help on the mile. I'm an average runner and I was actually surprised when my coach told me my time at the end. I've done better. I don't think I gave enough thought about the earlier events tiring me out. Should you run at a consistent pace the WHOLE time around or run super fast to shave off time in the beginning and give yourself some wiggle room at the end? Also, what mile run time should I aim for? I know what the average scores for the events are, so I'm assuming that if I can do slightly better than them, I'll pass. But, I know for sure that I can't run a mile under 7 minutes (I believe the average was 6:40). Would the academy accept a mile run that's under 7:30? Because I've done that before and I'm confidant that I can do it again. Thanks! Wish me luck!
