Re: Life in the Royal Marines

Leave will depend on what unit you get posted to and what is happening in the world obvisouly. But personally Ive had lots of leave and long weekends etc, plenty of time s...

Re: PJFT Prep

Yeah that does sound better, what sort of 6 miler are you doing? (ie best effort, jog, intervals?).. Because I would suggest making that either a fartlek or interval run. Even map out the mile points on it and jog the first mile then run the next (aiming for a 6 minute mile).. And repeat that 3 time...

Re: PJFT Prep

Got two things here for you mate: 1. NOTHING will make these runs feel easier- Even when you're a trained rank you will be hanging out on runs because if you aren't then you're not working hard enough, but you will be running a lot faster. I dread doing 1.5 mile best efforts because its honking runn...

Re: Royal Marines or Para's?

Think of all the SQ's you can specialise in with the marines, you'll be working with a great bunch of lads and you will get to enjoy Lympstone for 32 weeks! What more could you want from life! Seriously there's lads who have passed out that had far worse scores than that, you do really need some tim...

Re: Royal Marines

What are you're fitness levels like just now? If you're fit but heavy then the only problem will be the medical for you. To lose weight I would personally start of doing long slow runs about 4 times a week and eat healthily ie. still eat enough food but don't indulge in crap like chocolate and take ...

Re: I need some advice on how to get fit enough to join.

14 years old.. I would enjoy you're childhood just now! As tab said keep yourself active, maybe try and get into a sports team. When you're older and maturer then you can think about getting yourself fit enough to pass the tests.
