Hi there. Trying to decide weather to go paras or rifles. If the training is similar for the most part besides p company ill probably go for paras. Im under the impression training from day 1 with the paras is a a lot harder than normal infantry regiments such as rifles. Mentally Id like to think i could handle the paras. Physically im not too sure. The best time ive ran the 2km is 8:19 and this at the begging of my training. Most of the time it averages out between 9:00 - 9:40. I've got my assessment centre coming up before Christmas to which id need to get the time below 8:15. And i wouldn't be streamed in until around march time anyway giving me time to train. Problems with money ( food) have left me at a small 60kg at 5'8 at 17 years old. So i am small. But not weak. What does everyone think ? thanks lads. Right now im thinking it would be better to go for rifles for 4 years i think it is ? and then go for paras if i still want too. Unsure.
