You'll be running at least once a day, sometimes twice a day.

Enjoy.

Stop lifting, and start running.

You will do about 3 sessions a week.

Start NOW or you will struggle big time.

Be sure and tell your training NCO that the first time he spouts inane drivel at you

I am sure you will get along just fine :wink:

Get of arrse right now and start running. If you have time to talk here and do nothing you will fail.

Never be jealous about the achievements of others - just beat them.

The army is not about weight training, the real requirement is to move at a steady, appropriate pace over every terrain.

The fitness requirement always has been cardio-vascular. It is no use being able to lift a car if you can't run 5 miles.

Lifting heavy weights occurs in some jobs, long distance stamina occurs in every job at some point.

Get running but don't do too much and injure yourself.

No problem mate

Don’t worry too much about your basic start level, after all you have got this far.

Keep your head down, do as your told without question, try you’re hardest and you will be fine

Oh and try not to listen to too many billy big balls :wink:
