    you mean boredom??

    Perhaps if you get bored after three miles you will have a lot of trouble with selection and you try RLC maybe??

    1. Stop big timing it.
    2. Run faster.

    Just explain you find it boring and they'll let you miss the long tabs. I didn't like carrying weight in basic training so the DS let me do it without a bergan.

    sorry about the spelling.. can't let the gaffer see me on the net..
    1 i'm not big timing it i just wanted some honest advice.
    2 whats a walt.

    don't get me wrong i can keep going and going with the best of them but after 3 miles all i can think about is that i'm running and i've still got loads to go.

    has anyone got any advice on how to amuse/ entertain myself on long runs

    I suggest that you vary your gait as you run.

    This approach seems to be very popular and is, I understand, the preferred SAS method of crossing open ground quickly.


    MODs, if I am breaching OPSEC here, please let me know.

    Try running over rough ground, the Black Mountains for instance, then use a map and compass to ensure you're on the right course and keep reminding yourself if you don't hit you're time you're binned, alternatively put your ipod on and turn up Kylie.
