    Definitely throw in the long runs at a slow pace if that's your goal. Bump it up 10% or less every week so long as your body is responding well to it. I can't give you an exact pace, but try to settle into one where you're not huffing and puffing and just chug along. For me, so much of running is finding the right tempo and getting in a groove. Once I find that groove I can think about other things to take my mind off the actual running, lol

    Little off topic but my wife and I were discussing the promotion process for the FD.. Can anyone give a little insight to the qualification/ testing/ appointment process?

    Well from one of the chiefs of the department, looks like this test that us the OCL guys got might be the ones the FD will use in the future for promotionals. Btw Griff, how are you doing in the Philadelphia process?

    Well at this point all there is to go on is previous NOEs. Obviously if they radically change the process who knows, but here is the last one for lieutenant:

    this was the only email i received besides the cpat orientation email I'm assuming they sent emails because of the holiday week coming up and then run being the following week.

    This is the first substantial thing that was emailed, everything else important has been snail mail. And all the email is is an attachment, which is a word doc that is the exact thing they'll probably put in the mail next week. As Bklnboy said they probably did it this way due to the time crunch and the holidays.

    I didn't get the email. EVERYONE I know got one. I have the highest list number out of everyone. I don't think they reached the 700s for the EMS class. Otherwise I prob would have gotten the email to report for the run. Its sounds like if you are to report to the run and pass, they offer you the job so thats prob why I didn't get one. Pretty heartbreaking. We'll see....So yea if this is correct looks like you OC guys will have to save some space for left over EMS guys. Prob 100 or more.

    Call your investgator make sure they have a valid email for you the email was basically a word doc of the actual letter that comes in the mail so I would call him/her just to be sure.

    Do you think it's possible that not all EMS guys fit in the first class because they put some of the 297's in the class?

    It was 293, and no, they have not looked at anybody on the OC list.
