The PIN testing is the Ontario Police Fitness Pin, an optional test for officers to strive to achieve a high level of personal fitness. Some services require you to pass the test in order to be out on the road....


Thanks!

I did 1.5 miles today in about 90 seconds.

On the Queensway at 60km/hr while burning a very expensive fossil fuel. :D

10:39 on test day for Vancouver. Felt really good to make a personal best on the test. I've been working on my running so I should be able to beat that now.

Based on my 100 m time, I could do it in 5.03 minutes... :P

If you want to improve your 1.5 running time would you say interval training or just keep running for distance is best to improve that? Or is it a combination of both that is truly best do yous guys think?

Windsprints work well. Go to a track and time yourself running 1.5 miles to get a benchmark. To train start doing laps at an easy pace. Pick a distance (50 - 100 m) and run full out returning to your easy pace at the end. Do this a couple times a lap until you've run about two miles. Do this a few times a week for two weeks and then then test yourself at 1.5 miles again. You should show a decent improvement.

I used this method and managed to get my time down to 10:18. Not spectacular but decent.

10:02 today, outdoors.

If I had known it was that close I would have busted a gut to break 10:00.

Not bad for a 37 year-old.

No kidding! Good job. I know a 24 year old that has a hard time getting 10 mins (But then again I'm not really a runner ;) hehe)

The absolute best way to improve it is to run longer than the actual distance. that is how you see an improvement in your time.

Ran it 2 days ago in 10:45

I disagree... it's more about intensity. Hill running and sprints will help best because it's not a marithon. It is a short distance fast run.
