well, despite a long delay, my application has gone through, i’ve passed the medical (just, my hearing is piss-poor), and my Army Development and Recruitment weekend is set for the 7th and 8th of November.
Bricking it? Just a bit.
Excited? More so than ever before.
Relieved? Ask me on the 9th.
This is it. If i pass this weekend, i’m in. If i don’t, I’m not. It’s just that simple.
My mind is set, i can’t give up, to do that ruins my career, i have so much riding on this it’s unbelieveable. I won’t give up because to do that admits weakness. Weak isn’t something i want to be labelled.
I am fully prepared to be one of the most hated recruits on barracks, the military police are none to popular with the rest of the army, and this is the time where it is easy for them to make my life hell. They can beat me, degrade me and hurt me, i’ll lap it up and smile right back in their face, they can’t touch me. I’m invincible.
Now, regarding my training, i’ve slackened off the heavy weight work in favour of more speed based training. The army doesn’t really care how much i bench, but they’re gonna make me bang out press ups like no tomorrow. Similarly, i’m going to be running more than ever before, so i assume the best way to prepare for this is just to run all the time?
