    Thanks RedPool! I just got the call. Wasn't on the reserve list and definitely wasn't expecting it to come today. What a great way to start the weekend! Hopefully there will be as many boardies on this intake as there was on the last intake!

    Congratulations folks. Up until now you have all be in competition with each other for a hard earned space at GV. You're now all on the same team, so look out for each other. Get the heads down and i may see some of you on the ground in 6 months time!

    Thanks for all your help Maj. As i've said before, you've been an amazing source of knowledge for all of us! I think it's safe to say that a few of us owe you a beer :D

    What's everyone been doing fitness-wise in preparation for GV?


  • Registered Users Posts: 141 ✭✭ Drummer64


    Wishing i was doing more lol just trying to get back into it. Any signed of welcome pack?

    Lol me too although I've focused more on cardio lately and starting to think I should've started a bit of strength training earlier. Just doing the usual press ups, squats etc at the minute. Hoping not to be seen as 'weak' when the GV training starts! I haven't received mine yet but hoping it'll be there when I get home tonight/tomorrow at latest!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 71 ✭✭ ColourArcade


    To be honest, i'm trying to get into the swing of things again also. Some cardio and strength training. Just trying to increase my sprint time and lift weights until defeat. I know it'll come in handy when we get into GV.

    I've received nothing yet either, hopefully should be by the end of the week when we get the post!


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 TERRYFOLDS


    I thought packs usually came out quite quick, I think some got theirs the next day in the last set of calls, hopefully tomorrow then. As for training I've been slacking too, 2 light runs a week and 4 days of weights not having pushed too hard with either. Going to ease my way up to doing another set of sprint training and some tabata training as well. Had a full week without training there and fitness has definitely suffered from that but time enough to get fitter.

    Hey, really unexpected but I just got the call for a January start! Been lurking awhile but made my first post up a couple of days ago. The board is clearly a good luck charm.

    So delighted!!
