no that was the 4 miler. dont know how he would have failed that if he could pass a prmc, but im guessing it might be because he was nackered from all the exercise he had been forced to do *text deleted*

I read the book and he ended up having some odd form of blood flow restriction around the muscle through a membrane the wont let oxygen flow or doesnt expand properly i cant recall exactly and i dont have the book on hand. Corrective surgery might or might not help as i recall.

ye it was his leg, the training team didn't know about it at the time and neither did he,it was a weird injury. and don't forget that he was running the 4 mile with about 21lbs of kit and a rifle in boots and combat jacket/pants. might sound easy but i bet its harder than what it looks and sounds!

he had compartment syndrome which is basically where the muscles cant expand and pressure builds up causing cramp and loss of sensation. He must have had a pretty chronic case of it *text deleted* it is treatable normally with physio and deep muscle massaging

Yeah, there is a 6 mile speed march. Most of the lads in my troop found the 6 miler harder than the 9 miler due to the hills.

Think it was called Carpal tunnel syndrome or Compartment tunnel syndrome?

Just had a look in the book and its Compartment Syndrome. Carpal Tunnel is to do with your wrists I think.
