personal best 9:18, usually 9:25-9:35.
I've been on 2&1/2 yrs now, and I'm sure the only reason my times have not gotten longer as I've put on weight is mental determination...
As in "I will bust a lung/gut/tendon" if only to prove that I'm not slack. Which I guess I am.... :oops:

i did the 1.5 mile run in 8:30 before on an inside bubble track

i worked up to that over 4 months

4 years ago when i was in college and ran often i once did it in 8:10

9:13 without training. I want to get down to8:30, that would be sweet and am confident i can with training. I dont typically go for endurance when i run. I usually try and go fast as i can 6 times around a city sized block. I think that is close to a track.
Does anyone know, how close a city block is to a track? (distance wise)... cheers and best fo luck to you.

You are right there with me Big Man, don't worry I am sure not running like a deer is not a bad thing and I am sure our size is an asset as well. ;)

Damn it... I'm very upset with my time on 1.5miles run.

After my shin injury, I can't hardly do it within 13:30. My PIN test is two days away... :madexplode:

I've made it this far into the process. ... sigh..... :madexplode:

Rho, is it mandatory for employment to pass the PIN test? Or is it just "srongly recommended"?

Keep your chin up.

I know of at least one newer OPP recruit who was unable to pass the PIN when they started training. They were all given numerous opportunities to pass the PIN during their time at OPC and again when they returned to Orillia...

Good luck Rho

Cheers,

I was thinking that TM is right, since the most recent OPP magazine that I saw had an article about accident rate for people who do not pass the PIN testing during Pre-OPC training.

Since they had this statistic, I figured that it was possible to be working w/out passing the test.
