Okay, things have come on since my last threads, I went and did my BARB and came out with a very respectable score. I've got my interview with the Sgt in the next week or so, and all seems to be going well in that regard. Almost everything. I'm now getting pain at the worst possible time to get it, and in the worst possible place - less than two weeks before my interview, and in the right (only the right!) lower leg in about three different places. It's not severe and it's not debilitating, and I've been having it on and off for a while, but it is, well, painful, and I'm worried that if I go and do selection/experience day etc at the earliest opportunity, my shin is going to start acting up and I'm going to get deferred or at worst, refused entry completely. It doesn't stop me running but does make it uncomfortable, and stings for an hour or so afterwards. They've made it clear that "you only proceed when you're ready", but I really don't want to delay my application if there isn't a bloody good reason. I loathe my current job (not dislike, loathe. I ferking hate it!), and am extremely excited to be looking forward to the next stage of selection. But I'd rather delay it than fail it, and I'm really unsure what to do at this point . EDIT - by the way, I went to a running shop and he fitted me out with some new shoes, saying that I was pronating a little on one of my legs. I don't remember much more of the specifics but according to the guy, my running is now sorted insofar as actually running "properly" is concerned.
