i went there and expected to fail since i didnt train for months leading to it. the place had the electronically controlled system, and it was easier than the old system. i thought since i was there, might as well have a go at it and try out the electronic system even if i fail there.
first station was shuttle run - to my surprise i did a 10s flat for shuttle run - something which has never happened before in my life.
inspired, i took a quick check at the scoring system and realised that if i kept at it for the next 1 hour, i could very well pass on the spot! so i kept at it - broad jump, sit-ups, chin-ups were all ok. i had enough points to pass already - whats left was the 2.4km run.
so i just need the last burst of fire and hang in there and i can jolly well pass with an incentive! and it really was the last few minutes of pain v.s. months of retrying or impending R.T. with mind over matter, i started the run and paced myself. after 3 rounds round the track, i had 8 minutes left - enough to pass! so the last 3 rounds were full steam ahead -
and as i crossed the finishing line, i looked at the clock and i knew i passed IPPT. all the excruciating pain disappeared. what joy you could say! all without prior training and all based on the new electronic system which inspired me so much. and what fine weather it was. subsequently i rained - very cooling.
so i urge everybody - you can pass IPPT if u put in the effort. dont do the last minute thing that i did - thats very risky.
Just finish my IPT at Khatib camp while I stay at Bukit Batok Although long trip to there, at least more easy to go there than maju. Anyway, still need to keep on training since no more RT for me on next year liao. ;p
