    I know I can improve but I have to wait a couple of years anyway, so I’m going to make sure I am in the best possible way I could be and more!! Yeah I was told on the phone 65kg.

    The best advice is to pick-up on the 12 week training programme produced by CTC at a level you are comfortable with: https://www.royalmarines.uk/threads/12-week-pre-prmc-poc-training-programme-male-females.100784/

    As ever, the thing you have to guard against, regardless of gender, is picking-up unnecessary training injuries.

    Many people try to do too much, too soon or leave it until the last minute to prepare.

    The first things are to get the basics right from the outset. If you get an injury, rest-up. If it's a recurrent injury, investigate. prevention is always better than cure, so ensure you have decent, well-cushioned running trainers...not crap "fashion-trainers" which look the part but make things worse.

    If you need insoles- get them before you develop an injury. Don't run with weight, nor in boots. Mix your run-days with alternate non-impact CV days (swims, cycles, rowing). Take rest days.

    Good luck.
