Tulliallan 12th November 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi, just starting a post for anybody starting at Tulliallan in November. I'm starting with L&B, finish my current job tomorrow and got 3 weeks off to prepare!!

Anybody know if you can leave at night if needed? I know you need to be back by 10.30pm but is it ok to leave and come back by then? Have 3 young kids and don't stay far from Tulliallan so if allowed I might nip out to meet them midweek and say hello.

Thanks for any advice, Yvonne.

So looking forward to starting and meeting you guys - any ideas on the total number starting in November - think the L&B intake is quite small for November.

Only 3.5 hours left to work, yeehaa!

murphy2 - my vetting took a while, think it was about 10 weeks, long time but so worth the wait!

Hi guys, Im starting on the 12th too with Strathclyde, I think there is 67 or 68 of us coming up! I heard the November intake was going to be a big one but I have no idea how many people the other forces are sending up. Cant wait to get started!

Vetting took about 4 weeks. I had a provisional start date during the vetting. Got job offer email month before start date.

Wow thats a lot from Strathclyde, will be so good!

Well finished job now so can concentrate on my runs in prep for the 5 mile runs that I hear we do at Tulliallan.

Do you guys know whether we need to take a running jacket and if so should it be black? Thinking its gonna be a bit chilly in Nov and Dec for these runs - if its chucking it down do we do the bleep test inside instead?

Sorry for all the questions, just wanting to be as organised as poss.

I'm starting week 3 - not done a 5 mile run yet (well I have but only in my own time), you can take your running jacket but you will be told to take it off.

It was chucking it down on Thursday and was windy, still had to do the mile and a half tho. Bleep test is only done once, week 2.

Be ready to run outside, in rain, snow, ice as criminals don't start running only in nice conditions so train to be faster in them too.

Things to do before - interval train, push-ups, sit ups (you will be tested on both of these), watch videos on bad ost practice, get a plan in place to learn 50odd definitions, stock up on protein shakes (you get very little protein in the meals).

Thanks for all the info Mike - will def start practicising push ups/press ups as def not great at these - do they need to be the full press up or can you put your knees on the floor and do it that way?

Am def going to need to spend a lot of time at the gym over the next few weeks!!

have a great week, let us know what you've been up to if you get a chance!

Yes it is! i got my uniform yesterday made it all the more real! I'm looking forward most to getting started! All this waiting around is making me nervous because I'm unsure what to expect! Must admit I'm a bit worried about the P.E side of things running long distances has never been a strong point of mine! But I have been out training so I hope it all pays off!

What about you guys?
