I'm new on this site but so far made some enquires on ARRSE with regards to joining my local TA unit which is an infantry unit. I've also had a few PM's to say why not try Para, RLC, REME etc but I'm still curious about the RMR. I done PRMC back in 2002 which I have to say I never made it to the end of, I had to pull out on day 2 after the 3 mile run as I was carrying an injury from the day before and didn't want to fail. Needless to say I done more damage than good and never got to do gym test 2. Forward on a few years and I'm still intersted in a military career of sorts but I'm in a good position with my home life and job and see the reserve post as the way forward. I'm aware that RMR Scotland is having a selection come April but that leaves me about 2 months to get my erse into some sort of shape. I've only started recently training again after a lay off and I'm carrying a stone more weight than I was when I done PRMC! Should I contact the RMR guys and see about the holding troop (if there is one and train my erse off) or is 2 months too short to get prepared for the selection? For PRMC I trained for 8 solid months and found it tough going, I know mentally whats required but afraid I might not be ready physically. Will the holding troop whip me into shape in 2 months if I'm committed enough? I keep thinking do the TA and get in someway but I feel I might be letting myself down if I don't aim higher... Cheers.
