ok, so i ran the Cooper test today. I haven't been running for over 3 months, so i ran 2900 meters. However, i'm going to run 4 times a week from now on, i'll start with running 10 kilometers on Thursdays and Fridays, and 20 kilometers on Sunday, and on Mondays, i'll run the cooper-test. after a couple of months, i should be able to run at least 60 kilometers pr. week.
Anyway, i have heard that the Cooper test is more then running, it includes pushups, situps, pullups and even benchpress... is this true? if so, how many pushups, situps etc. do you have to take under the test?

I have not heard or read about pullups or situps to be done along with the cooper test. At least no one did mention it in their letters and posts on my web site.

The Cooper test in only running. The goal is to run an as long a distance as possible in a 12 mn time frame. Full stop.

What do you run on at Aubagne?The run is done on asphalt within 1RE barracks. No fancy athletics track with artificial surface... And yes, of course, you've got to run on the ground... Running on the walls is only if you make it to Castel !:rolleyes:
