When you go to Catterick do you run in boots straight away... Or would I need to take a good pair of running shoes with me?

Running shoes are like any other item of kit: if you need them, a kind storeperson will give you some.

This just has to be a "Wah!" doesn't it?

Ya.

You'll be issued trainers and boots and told what to wear when. Read your joining instructions.

Just train in boots with no socks. 3.2 km run with 8 kg belt kit everyday. Feet will be a bit sore at first with blisters etc. Then after 6 months start wearing socks. You'll feel like you are walking on air.

Go a step further and start with bits of broken glass and grit in you boots (without socks).

Your feet will bleed and probably get infected for a while, however, once you remove the debris (if you haven’t succumbed to gangrene and amputation) it will be like your floating

Go two steps further and run barefoot on the volcanic rock and hot ground in Iceland. Your feet will probably bleed, burn, be extremely painful and refuse to bear your weight for some time afterwards, but once you put your boots full of broken glass on, you'll feel like you're floating on air.

ok you are all taking the micky on a serious note when you are getting shot at or have to tab long distances will you be wearing boots or trainers?
answer of course is boots. so use your common sense...because shin splints are a fact however its better to find out in training not on the battle field or half way through a long tab.. take the pain it can be done
 
I tried running in boots but the security bod stopped me before I got half way.
