I just ran through a practice PRT on my own this weekend and I am really surprised how difficult it was when you put all the events together. My PRT is on Jan. 21st and before this weekend, I would normally just practice each event on different days. I thought I was going to do great until I put them together. That sprint really took it out of me. My pushups went from 55 on a normal day to 40.
I know this was probably discussed before, but if you weren't doing these events together, go practice them now. I now know I have three weeks to work on my recovery after the sprint for my pushups.

JFred, I hope you don't need three weeks of recovery after your sprint -- I think they only give you 5 minutes.
Sorry, couldn't help it.
But seriously, I know what you mean. I've been having this discussion with a few others offline, and even the sprint alone is harder than it sounds. Then add everything else after the longest sprint of your life (at least of mine) and it hurts.

I had a practice sprint last week and the 1.5 miles run...and I tell you I need a week to recover from the pain I had on my legs. It's really harder than it sound. I'm starting to worry if I'll pass. My AC said that if I fail, just call them when I'm ready and they will reschedule the PRT.
I'm still looking for a track that I can do the practice PRT. I'm just running around my blocks now. My PRT is on the 17th....

After 4 of the 5 events, you're TIRED. After the shuttle run or now the FBI sprint, your legs are pumped up full of blood and you head out to the track for the run. Be it 1.5 or 2 miles, it's something you have to practice, practice, practice. ALL of them together, at LEAST once a week! Good luck!

Will the order of the events during the prt always be the same? I'm stronger in some events than others, and if I know that one event will always come after a certain other, it makes it easier to focus on improving (i.e. I can do 50 pushups fresh, but after a 1.5 mile run...no way. However, I can still squeeze out 50 on a good day after a 300M sprint.)
Also, I've read on other posts that the average rest time between events in approximately 5 minutes. Can I count on there always being at least 5 minutes rest? Could there ever be a situation where you jump immediately from one event to the next?

The responses from those who have taken the PRT and Q test are consistent:
1) Order of events:
- Sit ups
- 300m sprint
- Push ups
- 1.5 mi run
- Pull ups (only at Q, only for bragging rights)
2) "about" 5 minutes rest between.
