Ah what i wouldnt give to be in your situation, that is fantastic, great inspiration, really good luck on the 30 miler, thats brillient.

Stupid question maybe, but id really like to know how you found the other commando tests, extremly exhausting, harder than you thought, easier than you thought through all the preparation?

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone i passed the 30 miler, and im pretty happy i cracked the tests first time, i think the hardest part of recruit training was definetly getting over my injury. The fact of being stuck in limbo whilst all of your best mates progress through training and pass out is hard to deal with and i think someone dealing with all that and still be as motivated to finish what they started is a test in itself

Well done on hacking the Ccse despite injury.
In my day we did the 30 Miler non-stop fuelled
with nutty and without pain killers. For me it was
the worst test of all but I made it in good time.
