I was hanging out after a 2 hour footy training session, switched on ITV and saw a man older than my dad pelting around in the mud, made me hang my head in shame.

Yes I did, excellent programme. He seemed to find the tests that I found easier hard and visa versa. The route of the nine miler seemed different and the 30 miler we had to navagate ourselves, only one forced stop with water and oggy at the half way point, mind you we did it in fighting order with one saftey bergan between us, they all seemed to be carrying a bergan.

I recognised the Coy commander as well, he was a Cpl when I knew him. He obviously passed his AIB and has done rather well, good effort.

I liked Chris' attitude, "if your going to make a program about these men you have to live with them and go through the discomfort with them" top bloke.

It was compulsive viewing to us more mature types and as someone who is only 2 months away from his 50th it gives us all that little bit of inspiration that age isnt that much of a burden after all.

So Im off down the the AFCO tomorrow to throw the Age Discrimination Law at them !

I was hanging my head in shame, more PT needed from me, I remember what he was saying on the treadmill next time I'm in agony, Pain is only temporary, his Green Lid is forever.

Top Effort.

Keep it on a piece of elastic!

Much as I empathise, you can probably already guess that potential line of enquiry has been exempted by the MoD from that particular piece of legislation.

Whether it changes is entirely open to speculation.

As we all grow older, perhaps it may.
