Does anyone have advice on making life easier during a CFT? Any advice on good training to prepare for miles of hell!?

Come on! Unless you're missing at least one lower limb you shouldn't have to ask a question like this.

Go for regular walks?
Funnily enough - that's the one. I have a job that involves sitting around in a chair playing with computers or attending meetings, and a preferred lifestyle that involves sitting around in a chair drinking vast amounts of BEER. I'm not young enough to be able to do that and just get up and do a CFT!

The best 'training' I find is to walk a bit - from house to pub, say, or work to pub, or pub to pub. Walk fast and walk often. Works for me... Now that it's summer, how about taking girlfriend/blow up sheep for a picnic - a crate of beer/few bottles of wine will give you a 'test loading' and an incentive....

the only way to make the cft easy is to get your bergan and your boots on
and start walking do that acouple of time aweek and gradually speed up til you can do the 4k in the allocated time no magic to it just find the time to do it.
Personally i hate the cft hated it when it was 8 miles still hate it now its 4k .Some people belive drinking can of redbull before start helps (probably only placebo but hey it works for me ) and isotonic drinks help
but basically training is what willget you through it

Miles of hell?? 8O all 4 of them?

I personaly cant see how anyone can fail a CFT, its a joke, The only thing difficult about it is trying to keep 2 hands on the rifle while reading the book you brought to pass the time!

But if you want to improve need to get out and run. A 40 minute session couple of times a week. Best bet speak to your PTI, and have a chat about it.

Of course, just done a 30 min tab to the offie.

I normally take my bergan - a slab of wife beater fits in perfectly, plus if you get a piece of clear tubing u can supp a couple of cans on the way back home.

or maybe Portapak? It looks like Ribena when its in a polastic tube, its easier to make the bottle stand upright in a day sack/bergan and spilages are minimal.

But don't listen to football matches during the CFT, had a rather bad telling off after Leeds scored (yes they did win many moons ago) and couple of us started cheering and hugging each other.

A speed march you got to cover the distance in 15minute mile if you fit
this is a fast march if you unfit bursts of doubling is needed
