All the best mate, just stick with it no matter what. You will have seen there are a few Opt-outs (myself included) on here who regret leaving traning big time and are waiting to re-join. Enjoy it the best you can and just stick out the rest.

Gandor, It wont do you any harm to lose some weight in my opinion, as if i remember right alot of the bigger lads in training with the RM really struggled with the rope climbing. The heavy lads just could not heave themselves up the 30 ft ropes, despite the fact that of course they were strong, they...

Mitch, If not drinking hasnt caused you any problems on civvy street i dont see why it should cause you any in the Royal Marines. There was bloke in my troop in training who never drank when we went into exeter, at first we all asked him a few times "do you want a pint", "go on mate" etc, but only b...

intro2pete, Personally i think a balanced regime is the best, one that incorporates different lengths of run and differring speeds (why think to yourself, if i can do this i should be able to do that? why not do both and then you,l know for sure) .

Maybe you could swap it for one of his Michael Moore selection. I wonder if MM believes the drivel he put in fairenheit 9/11, or was he just playing devil's advocate? or should i say "palying davils advocate" ?

Ashley, Im gutted for you mate, i know how it feels to have opted out but unfortunately there is nothing you could have done by the sounds of it. At least now through opting out it means with a bit of good luck your back might sort itself out and you can rejoin at some point in the future. There wou...
