Phase 1 Run!

#1
:? Humm Im a bit confused! i got loads of paper work given at the careers when i did the oath!

It said when you go for phase 1 you will have to complete a run in 12.45 minutes!
The question is if i do not do my run in that time will i get sent home or if not what will happen with me??

:?: :eek: :?: Thanks xx

You certainly wont get sent home, you will just keep on re-doing it until you pass. Lots of people who turn up to Phase 1 having passed recruit selection and having eat lots of pies since fail their first BPFA/BFT/BFA/PFA or whatever it is called these days so dont worry about it.

Not really the attitude to go with, What if I fail?

You'll be fine lady D, you passed selection not so long back so just keep the same attitude from them two days, I'm away on Monday. Finally!

Lady, you'd be surprised at fast you can do your 2.4k run when you've got a competitive streak and you're running in a group. Don't worry about it-you may just surprise yourself at how fast your time is!

I ran 11.57 on my first run at Winchester (I had injured my foot), but was faster by over 2 minutes just 6 weeks later. And even quicker at week 10 or something. As long as you put the effort in doing the PT, you'll greatly improve.

Thanks well i shocked my self when i went to selection as i did the run in 13.09 and before that i was really struggling with the run it was 16.02 Be for. I know reli unfit but ever since selection for some reason its stayed in the 13 minutes it wont go down!

I wouldn't worry personally. When i turned upto phase1 we had 1 guy who was running about 18 minutes for the 2.4k, but he was a phat fcuk, god knows how he passed selection in the 1st place.. He didn't end up staying long mind you, once his mandatory 28 days were up, he left, bloody waste of money.

But yeah, once you start running as part of your troop you will be more competitive and you will all end up pushing each others times down. Good luck with it though :D

What tests do you do in the first week of phase 1?

Is it the matts tests as in press ups, sit ups and the 2.4km run or is the more to the story?

Start Catterick on May 6th!!!

OH MY GOSH! Is it also true when you get to phase 1 you have to have loads of injections is this true or is some one puling my leg??
 
#15
lady d...did you not have to provide proof that you had all you're injections for tetanus and stuff..i did and had to get my doc to give me the ones i didnt have before i went anywhere. ended up with two sore arms for a week..
 
#16
Well i have a photo copy of my vaccinations but not all of them as they were lost and also my Dad reject most of them cause hes a **** . So ill have to get them again wont i!! x

Careers office told me when i signed up not to bother going to the docs for my immunisation record because the army will just give you them all again! I'm up for that.better to be safe than sorry.ha...

4days to go!!!
 
#18
lady d. i think i would have preffered to get them from my own doc instead of some eejit in the med centre who was probably legless the nite before and was suffering from a hangover. that way you know youre getting the right stuff..lol

baz1986 is right though, you will get them in the med center no matter what unfortunately, even if you have had all your immunizations and jabs from your own Doc.

Nice one. So I ran around like a lunatic for three weeks then having to make a stupid amount of phone calls to every god awful medical archive in the civil service to get my records which disappeared after my childhood doc died, and I'm going to get jabbed anyway!
