  1. Well I've been attested and now I'm being shipped off :(
    On a selection weekend - at Pirbright :'(

    I cannot keep up push-ups for a whole minute! If I do them fast I run out of energy and If I do'em slow I have to deal with my weight for longer. Sit-ups are a breeze but I believe I'm doing them wrong (back injury wrong), and the 1.5 mile run in under ten minutes?(well it's actually 3 miles, the first lap isn't timed) I'm not sure if it's possible, I've never timed myself.

    Waking up at 6:45 I can deal with, doing a fittnes test at 7:00 is just painful. Especially as last night I was trying to build some last muinte biceps and now my left arm aches and can't take any pressure at all, when I try to lean on it, it folds, like a fat indian called Gavin being kicked in the stomache by a swede. I think I'm in for a world of hurt now.

    At least I get to play on the assualt course :D

    wth happens in a psychometric test?

      I passed, barely.

      Don't worry Ninja_of_Doom, I have a good idea of what I'm in for since I was raised in a military setting. It's like a family business, apparently my parents and I were signed off just before the Berlin Wall came down. Expendable at birth :| what a scary thought. Also I'm planning on transferring to the regulars once I've got a good foot in, I don't want to get too commited just yet because I can't think of a trade I want to persue.

      Anyway I enjoyed that weekend. I took the advice you guys gave me, and paced myself while pushing to the max. I didn't get a super score for fitness, below average and above shite infact, but I damn well did the push and sit ups until I collapsed and even then I managed to push out a couple more. The run was the biggest bitch since they jogged us round the course once and then sent us out, making it a 3mile run. :( Using the alternate run/speed-walk technique I managed to squeeze bast 13 mins (12:58 - but I've never run three miles so there!) I then had a nice hearty vomit. It felt good - especially when followed by a nice warm breakfast.

      I loved the drilling, marching and assault course, the lessons were bearable and the instructors were hilarious. And now I ache.

      I'm looking forward to the next one in December and I'd suggest such a weekend to any/everybody else.

      Now I have to think of a better fitness program. Thank you all again for your advice (not you wacky, your post makes me sad inside :<).

      well keep in mind i'm 16 years old (was 15 when I did it). also running is just something I'm good at (along with fitness type stuff). Other kids are good at football/soccer/etc and I'm good at running (was first place, some people were getting 12:00s or so for 1 mile if that makes you feel better)

      It will take more than a vacuum of apology to suck your jar of salt out of my gaping flesh wound :<

      :P
