Another boring question but I'm confused..

Hi all, hope you're well.

So today I received a letter from my AFCO telling me I need to record a 3 month military style training diary because I may be asked for evidence of exercise at my medical.

Today is 25th February. My medical is on the 14th March.

I don't see how I can fill in my diary and get someone to sign it as a witness.

Am I meant to just fill in what I've been doing in the past and the last day in the diary be like a week before my medical?

Can anyone give me some advice?

New one on me. Have you been TMU, perhaps? If this is the first you knew about it, I cannot see how this can be genuinely achieved either.

Generally a training diary is only required if someone has an injury or condition which gives rise to doubt their physical robustness to undergo initial training. The diary is the evidence which demonstrates the individual has undertaken prolonged impact exercise over a sustained period without recurrence of the problem supposedly cured.

An example would be someone claiming to have suffered from shin splints, sprained ankle or similar.

A bone fide training diary can only really be accurately recorded on a mobile phone app such as 'Map My Run' or on a GPS Smart watch (which records routes, dates, times taken, elevation, calories burned etc.).

A pen & paper diary of claimed previous or projected training is more of an IQ test than anything else. It totally lacks meaningful credibility and is rather pointless as it is so easy to simply invent stuff to see how bone the Doc is.

You and me both Ninja. I have no idea what I'm meant to do, it doesn't make any sense.

It says on the letter ring them if I have any questions.

I'll be ringing them Monday morning.

Yep, unless you have declared a prior injury/condition it's an odd one. Possibly it's a clerical error - worth checking just to be certain.
