Me and a trainee officer from Portsmouth are going up on the Friday eve...anyone else?
I'm suppose to be going up next Thursday for 2 weeks.
Well that's all done..find out Wednesday if i've passed
Had some absolute tool lying next to me snoring like I have never heard before...he kept me and 6 others up but none of us wanted to do anything due to maybe getting kicked of the course...Even the few girls in the next room heard him
He failed... gave up on the warm up to the run! what a joke
Hopefully having zero sleep hasn't affected my result, he turns round to my mate and says that he 'probably wont come back'! he actually thought he had a choice...not even sure how he got past the interview to be honest
thought Id post an update so people know what to expect:
Run Time: 11:23 (glad because i know i can get that down to required 10:30 easy enough)
Icebreaker: Clear, informative and good use of humour
Powerlift: All weights completed
Jerry-can run: Test completed 150m
Grenade test physical and taking in Info: 11 out of 12
Team Tasks: 1 being the best 5 worst..achieved a 2
EDIT* BARB score 65
The run for infantry IS 12:45 not 14:00 for those who dont know
Yer I was there too m8, he was loud! Passed with a 11:15 run and 76 on the ol'BARB test
I got 65 in the BARB..overall im quite pleased, not a million miles away getting my time down to 10:30...
Conner came up with me from D-Coy, he came first on the run... 8:40something
Not bad considering like me he never had a wink of sleep either
