Applied in September, been training on/off since then. I have been training a lot recently for the PRMC which I still need to book. Want to go to the ACFO and speak to the guy in person but I'm always at work when its open. Hoping to get either a mid-June or August PRMC. Should be plenty of time to get fit.

ive been training since end of january and i havnt been this fit for a long time. ive been mainly concentratin on my cardiovascular, running 3-4 times a week doin from 3-7 miles each time.
my speed is improving as the other day i did a 3 miler in 18.20 which i thought was pretty good for me *text deleted*.
upper body is coming on aswell. *text deleted* just doin the circuit tht is on the RM website and its helping. I dont find the marine style pressups hard ne more which is a bonus.
hoping to get down the gym more soon and also get abit of swimming on the go.
aiming for my PRMC for end of june beg of july hopefull if all goes to plan.

Been training on and off for years. Only once was it semi-serious about 2 years ago. Because of where I lived and my job, it's taken me a long while to get around to getting my application in, among other things. I was past the age limit for 3 years and have given up. They upped the age limit to 33 so I've got one more chance at it.

This time around, I started about September 2007 and have been training fairly seriously since. My training started off being twice or three times a week, for the past 6 months. This past month though I've been going 4-5 times a week, afternoon runs/bike rides (30-45 mins each time) and pull ups, with night time sit ups/press ups. Before last month I did a bit of weight training as well.

I've been getting in better shape, but have a ways to go yet. I've lost about 8kg's in the process since September last year.

started training properlly about 2 months ago, from there ive had a massive improvement with running, I could barely run 2 miles and now im finding running so easy and its become less of a chore. never found press ups or sit ups challenging :fly:

Been traing for about 3months properly trying to keep a am/pm routine training everyday apart from wednesday and sundays (days off).
Pretty much takes over your life I found. Still will all be worth it when you are all cammed up doing some real sneaky beaky sh*t in a far off land.

hola!
don't think too hard about that stuff...just get your training started, the sooner, the harder the better...
if it's getting to your morale, do some fun stuff, i go rock climbing twice a week as i live in switzerland, it also helped my pull ups pretty well (14)
if your legs are tightening up it's prob. because of lack of water or magnesium and off course they need time as the "tissue" around the muscles don't grow and strech as fast as the muscles and that if unlucky could end in a compartement defficit syndrome...
keep it up!
cheers
