Persevere.

I got 24 months TMU back on March 30, 2010.

Today...I finished that suspension and am technically allowed to re-apply.

It's a pretty junk feeling when it first happens...but if it's something that you really want, then persevere and you'll get another opportunity.

May 2013 baby :rock:

I'm looking at a potential 4yr TMU which puts me on the brink of the upper age limit, which is quite worrying, but my view is, it's just 4 more years of phys, heh. Don't get me wrong, I'll still be cranky.

That's what I did...I'm currently in my second year of a two year uni course.

Don't stress...18 months will fly by.

did they fail you because you had shinsplints at the time of your medical, or just because you get them in general? i keep getting them and they're a pain because they keep setting me back on my running :sad2:

steffan i found that MY shins splints were through a real bad diet and naff running shoes/ insoles.....i got rid of them by wearing footy socks all the way up and obviously proper running kit. and keep my legs warm after a run. plus a hot bath/shower after always helped increase bloody flow to my legs so aids the recovery process too.

loads of shin splint threads have a good look around!

hope it helps!

awesome, thanks! i'd heard of the hot bath and keeping legs warm after a run, but i'll definitely try the footy socs trick, and i'm only just seriously getting my diet in gear so hopefully that'll help :smile:

Another that might help is learning how to massage your lower leg....basically forces out any excess lactic acid.... I have a had bit of training in sports massage so I'm ok but always get proper technique/advice first YouTube is ok to a certain level!

its because i had them at the time of the medical :(, but could have saved me in the long run anyway
