I have been doing reasearch all day on the Geographical technicians and have found that although i will get my wings and do P-Coy i will not ever be part of the paras, i will just be part of the para trained engineers which is completely the opposite of what i was told at the recruitm...

Cheers for the advice everyone.
I have my interview on the 28th August and depending what my run time is, they will decide if its time to send me to ADSC yet or not so fingers crossed. 2 weeks of solid cardio work to do now.

Thank you for all the advice people

I have started trying all these techniques and they seem to work awsome for cardio, specially the swimming (which i am not too strong at so best to practice anyway)

I will keep you posted on which techniques work the best

Thanks again

It would be best to get your application rolling as there could be hold ups with your medical ect. If you do have doubts when ADSC time comes round you can do a practice where they do the jerry can walk, heaves, 1.5 miler and ice breaker to make sure your ready.
