Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Had my TA medical last week and this week I'm going to be attested and start PT etc. But a couple of days ago I strained my quad muscle while out running. Can manage to walk but can't really do anything more strenuous than that. Do i need to get a doctors certificate to exempt me from my first drill night? Obviously I will go along and want to do as much as possible but equally I dont want to do myself any further damage. Any advice gratefully received.
  2. Just tell them you are injured, you probably won't be the only one either, most likely you'll have a lesson of some sort while the others get beasted. I don't think there's any need for a doctors note.
