insight course

#1 Post by drummerja »

hey all, can anyone give me an idea of what the insight course is like. what activitys you do, how fit you need to be etc. im not amazingly fit, but i want to be able to compare myself to others who are thinking of joining etc. my strengh is fine, i can walk cumbria with a 80lbs pack on for days, though sore after doing it for a week, but running is my downfall. i can run around 6klm and then i nacked. then i got shin splints, and now im on the cross trainier for half an hour 3 times a week to simulate running :cry:
