So i've been in the application process since 24th march last year, I completed selection in september and passed with a B grade. Since then I've built myself up to 12 mile runs and running just over 7 minute miles. I thought I injured my knee and so had to have an MRI which thank goodness came back negative so I told my careers advisor and he told me I was fine and didnt need to worry about. Anyway Ive grafted to get my press ups, sit ups and 1.5 mile run time down. My girlfriend is saying now that she doesnt want me to join up until I get a trade which will take 2 years and 22 months to become fully qualified (ill be about 25 by that point). What I want opinions on is am I selfish for saying that I dont want to wait that amount of time to join up and that im not budging from getting to catterick this year (as my staff sargeant told me my date will be in October/november). Cheers lads.
