My gym is closed over christmas and circuit classes are off for 2 weeks so I'm going to have to keep myself fit with running.

I'll still be doing things on christmas day and I don't intend to rest. Got my PRMC in January so I can't afford to take it easy.

It could be worse guys- have a thought for those that only joined-up this month. They'll be home for two weeks, then have to go straight back in at week 2 or 3 fitness - guarantee they won't feel like getting back on the train initially- it takes a lot of will power to remain focussed.

Training

Guys, even us former marines are a little disgruntled at the change in training schedule over the christmas period. My last training session before the holidays is Sunday and then it will be Thursday after Christmas to clear the cob webs away from Christmas and Boxing day.

When I served in the Corps, I used to take Christmas Day and Boxing day off, New Years day. The days over the holidays when I went running, I reduced the distances and ran at a less urgent pace. I still drank most nights, as you do. I guess it was my way of enjoying the holidays and winding down.

Some bootnecks in my troop didn't do any training over the holiday period and only drank lots of ale. That became apparent on the first day back after leave when we went for our first run. However, that said, those who suffered during the run, threw up on the move and no matter how painful they found it, they didn't fall back or slacken off the pace.

That's bootnecks for you :eek:ops: :D 8)


Also: Ninja: I agree with you about getting back on the train. I recall having butterfly's in my stomach when I used to return from leave to CTC and also a deep feeling of dredd. However, after a day or so, it all disappeared. *text deleted* :D

Cheers

Steve

Always happy to assist with morale :*text deleted*:

Rather you than I, but the very best of luck to all returning to CTC on Sunday- remember what's at the end of it guys.
