Alright NUFC,

Yeh I was one of the ones who went for scran and we got told we'd failed and couldn't re-apply for a year! If that had happened about 20 of us would have got the boot, we were starving!

Bottom field warmup was harsh (200m sprints, then some on an incline like this /, mixed with double marking time and pyramid sets of pressups, squat thrusts, we ended with some piggy back rides, not as fun as they sounded) although I actually enjoyed the break the excersies gave you.
I got left hanging from the ropes on the high obstacle lol but you are so psyched up and adrenalin charged you don't really have time to worry.

Gym test 2 was alright as NUFC said, intense but short enough to last out there was no way on God's Earth I would have wrapped then. A good circuit session in the gym would be good training for this.

The 3 miler seem to sort the men from the boys, quite a strong troop after that. Two wrapped on the warm up for the 3 miler!

Im looking at about 12 weeks.

I'd say 7:00 min/mile pace or thereabouts, seemed longer than 3 miles as well, more like 3.5.

The route is ok though.

im not starting RT for a few months as ive got to finish my college course but the afco said i will get my date next week so then i will know for sure.

It was the hardest 3 days of my life because as well as doing the test yo get beasted in between. Thursday night we were meant to do 100 press ups because everyone kept talking. So we were in the little square with our feet raised on the wall and everyone just about managed 40. We also got beasted for being 5 minutes late. So all the beatings take it out of you as well.

The scousers in my room were the funniest guys ever. They had everyone laughing all the time.Maybe thats why we got beasted so much.

Congrats.

Good to see more forum lads doing well, particularly a fellow orthotics user.

I know I should use the search button but I'll just ask while you still want to talk about it. Are the situps done with a two minute time limit?

Good Work. :wink:

I just can't work out how people failed the warm up for the 3 miler! What was the general reaction from the guys there? They must have looked like right idiots!

yeh they did look pretty stupid. Imagine travelling all that way to drop out of the 3 mile warm up. It was abit knackering but was only about 10 mins long.

You do loads of sprints and running up hills. You will do sets of 5 or 10 press ups, sit ups, squat thrusts and you do this quite a few times. Also do piggy back runs but its mainly sprinting. The exercises like press ups are quite useful for getting your breath back before going on your next sprint :lol:

cheers , i was worred they would ask you to do 50 pressups straight out and then do more after it cause i couldnt handle that i managed to get myself up to 40 but i recon it would take a while to get up to 50
