don't really understand what your question is. When you pass prmc you get issued some boots. You need to break these in before you start rt. We were told not to train in boots though as you can injure yourself.
I see. I didn't do any training in boots before prmc, it isn't really required. you only do the commando slide, assuault course and determination test in the boots anyway. If you think that you might get blisters then pad your feet out by wearing two pairs of socks or buy some blister tape. You could try wearing boots to get used to what it will be like, and you probably won't be able to run as fast in boots as with trainers, but i wouldn't train in boots before you go down. From what i gather, people nowadays aren't used to boots, and have soft feet as a result of wearing trainers. If you over do it before prmc, you could end up damaging your knees. best bet is to leave the running in boots until you get down there. hope this helps
Can you bring your OWN boots by chance ?. There is a good store here that sells high quality combat boots. My friends in the Canadian Forces buy them, and the army lets you use them. They are light, and give the best ankle support and have great sole comfort. Is this a possibility ?.
They let some people were there own boots on my PRMC but they had to be a certan type, only two people bought them. An officer that had been to week twenty in the marines and a Para. Im guessing paras use same boots? Cz Cpl Mason had to check to see if they were okay
Okay, so I've finally started to try and get into shape. Now at the minute I'm just running a bit in the gym (going to try a road run next week, hopefully).
However all I've heard from people recently is about my choice of footwear. See I didn't bring any trainers with me upto university, and unwilling to spend the money I've been running in my ten eyelet Doc Martens. Is there anything in particular wrong with this? I mean other than giving me a couple of spots of hard skin round my ankles they don't seem to have done me any harm and they fit my feet like a second skin. So basically, do you guys think I need to go and buy trainers, or can I stick with the DMs?
Buy some trainers mate. ive just been issued my boots for when i start RT to break them in. but they warned us not to go running in them ova wise your most likely to get *text deleted*, they must of said not to run in them about 3 times whilst i was down at my PRMC *text deleted*
I've done it before. Although in different circumstances. I woke up late on a hiking trip and had to run to our next camp which was 19 miles away with 20 kilo pack *text deleted*. Whilst occasionally stopping to check my compass and map to see if I was on track. Man that was a hard hike!
