i'll fail the cooper test

Postby daisy » Tue Sep 13, 2005 10:44 am

hi,

ihave to make the cooper test this sonday. thats 2600 metres in 12 minutes.
its for the entry into a fitness instructor course

i only ran 3 times this year. i have about 90kg in the moment with 193cm. confident as i am i thought i would need no practise.
today my first attempt.
12min - 2450 metres. i got totally bad stitches in the side (pain in the chest)

does anyone knows good tricks to avoid these stitches in the side? breathing, isnt it?
is there any point the try it again before sonday?

:?

so, and now i also posted in the runners section one time. :D

thanks if anyone knows what

My personal experience tells me that to avoid the stitch I have to avoid eating for at least two hours before running, maybe even for three hours.
How hard was it now when you ran, could you have pressed it some more?
Good luck with the test :)!
And I suppose this means that you're not ill today?

hi bronco,

thanks for your answer

i dont feel ill, but i call you soon,....

with eating, that could be an explanation (i hope so) , i ate 5 min before.
i had slight stitching all the time except the first 30 seconds, it got a bit nastier to the end. today i went totally to the limit, but perhaps it would have been different if there were no stitching,..?? :?:

:)

hi,

here my final update:

before sunday i tried it twice and both tries it was exactly 12:00. the gains here were due to better breathing, no eating and better feeling of how to run and when (usage of power endurance).
at the test at sunday i got 11:45, the additional 15 sec were caused by competition atmosphere and a round track instead of apavement track with corners.
tactically it wasnt perfect, the first two laps i was first in the end i got last :lol: :lol: , but the time was ok

everything got good in the end.

not to eat was a good tipp.

:)

thanks to all
