Its been a long time, but i've finaly had my enlistment date for my choosen trade (Installation Technician, Royal Signals) in the Army - 6.09.07. After 2 Selection weekends in November - failed the first medical for a heart murmur! Its been a bit misleading to say the least, one minute im going to Lichfield ATR for my basic, and then the next im going to Winchester - but its been confirmed that im going to Winchester. I just wanted to know how I should prepare myself for September. Currently Im doing no physical activities, but last time i ran a mile and 1/2 run i did so in 09:12. I dont think i should worry about my running so much as I suppose I am built for it - chicken legs etc! It's all good joining the gym etc, but I dont know what approach to take. Do I want to muscle up or is it best to keep the figure I have now (im dreading the PT kit!). I didnt do too bad on the Selection weekend, I did well on the pull ups (10), and i must have done ok on the meter read weights - but they never told me those readings - just said doesnt matter I passed. Anyway, any other advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! Another question actually, Im 26 years old, and on the selection weekend i was a good 5 years older than all the other lads there, was anybody else in this situation starting their basic training?
