Confused. Been doing some research on that artists forum thats just sprung up http://artistsrifles.forumotion.co.uk Unsure if its walty or real - 8 mile run? The only information I've been given is there's only the 1.5 mile BFT in under 10min 30 sec, then CFT (in which i manage 5.9 miles / hour with 40lbs) I ask because Im a weak runner but strong endurance marcher Not the sort of thing i want to phone up and ask about, nor draw attention to but how much running is involved in drill nights, if anyone has heard via friends of friends and all. I actually enjoy long heavy bergan walks but running more than a BFT gives me the screaming terror Can i get by on just 60lbs bergan walks? finally any views on if you can backstroke in the swim test? - lots of people, no forward vison - could make you look bad. Cheers and all the best thanks for your time Dynamic IP addresses. Gotta love them. power off, 30 mins, new IP.
