My daughter was sent to FIT last Friday thus missing her PIR yesterday. She's had three tries to pass her run already. I'm not sure how much she's knocked off. I ask her tomorrow when she calls. She was at one minute when she went in to FIT. What are her chances of passing really?

FIT, is all just practice PFA. I had to do the run clinic, it was a bunch of sustained running and some basic cardio workouts. I did a 30 min sustained run, and another day was a 15min sustained run with some cardio. If she pushes herself, then she can achieve it. No one else can run the PFA for her. the hardest part, is the clock for the 12 laps. It is pretty cut and dry, as far as pass or fail.

She's determined. I just hope she keeps her head up

Most of the people I saw in FIT were capable of passing, but a lot either had issues they refused to go to medical for or had issues with pacing. They'd sprint a few laps to start off, tire themselves out and eventually start walking.

I was RCU (injured) so I only actually ran with them once.

Staying positive was the hardest part for me when I was in FIT. It seemed like 3/4 of the girls there with me were intent on not passing. Its definitely a rough place to be but I made it through and as long as she keeps a good attitude she can too.

Do they grade harder on the final PT test than they do on the assessments? Also if my SR doesn't pass push-ups will they send him to FIT?

No it is not graded harder, it is simply pass or fail. There is a set standard for males and females that does not change.
