  3. Hey jord is there a big waiting list for Seaman Specialist?, or you not applied yet bud?
  4. Fill the shed at the bottom of the garden with pots of paint (grey if you happen to have any, although any colour will suffice), then starting of upstairs run to the shed and back upstairs again with a new pot of paint. That'll be something near the fitness an 'upperdeck technician' requires.
  5. It's around 10 months currently, although it does vary quite greatly from month to month. To give you an idea my selection process was done and dusted by August and I have just received my date for Raleigh this week- 25th May.

    -As with any exercise you should consult a doctor before taking part to make sure that you are medically fit.

    -It is certainly worth investing in a pair of comfortable running shoes that serve the purpose for your intended training programme. Your local sports shop will be able to advise you on the type that are best for you. You don’t have to spend a fortune to buy a good pair of running shoes.

    -It is a good idea to invest in a ‘high visibility’ jacket or surcoat so that you can beseen by fast moving traffic if you intend to run on or near the road.

    -Make sure you carry out at least 5 whole minutes of stretching exercise not only before but also after your running programme. This can help to prevent injury.
    -Whilst you shouldn’t run on a full stomach it is also not good to run on an empty one either. A great food to eat approximately 30 minutes before a run is a banana. These are great for giving you energy.

    -Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Try to drink at least 1.5 litres each day in total. This will keep you hydrated and help to prevent muscle cramp.

    -Don’t overdo it. If you feel any pain or discomfort then stop and seek medical advice.

    Good luck

    Like the time the phase two bootie was up the trees at CTC and felt discomfort and decided to hug a tree.

    "Two fecking seconds to move you ****** then I will be up there and drag you by down the bollocks" A few kind words always helps.
