I'm moving in a few weeks and there will be an RMR detachment 20 mins away, and I'm thinking of signing up, but I'm nearly 30, which is putting me off. I was in the regular army at 18/19, but didn't stick it out. I did have a spell with the RMR in Manchester a few years back too, but struggled to balance it with life. I hate people who have a million excuses for these things when in truth they simply don't have the gristle to earn a green beret, but the travel time combined with work issues became too much, and I struggled with the fitness due to shin splints and struggled with my knees on long exercises/downhill running. I've just had an operation on my ankles, unbeknownst to me the problems I were having were because my ankles were so misaligned (they've been rotated 43 degrees)!!! I completed "basic" twice believe it or not, but wrapped my tits in before getting the bus to Lympstone. So anyway, I'm considering a final go at it now I'm able to get fit and at a more stable point in my life, but being 30 has me doubting myself slightly? Any thoughts? I'd also like to go for a commission but I was always told that the process of being put in front of the AIB could only take place once all training was completed.
