Didn't see the posts where people were saying stuff you didn't like but don't leave please.
Also, all the people worrying about rep ranges and how heavy the weights are. I'd recommend not even worrying about that, your not 18 weeks out of a bodybuilding show, as long as you keep the intensity of the workouts high and incorporate cardio, you'll be fine for the CPAT. I can't comment on The Rock since I don't know exactly what it's all about, physically at least. Also Id worry more about not getting injured from doing max RM squats or DLs and lighten up the weights and work more towards explosive movements and endurance. But like one of the lieutenants said the finish line is really close, so just stay positive and keep working out. Theres no reason to worry about things you have no control over
Such a sad state of affairs of what's going on with the fdny. I'm leaving a 6 figure job to join the fdny. I pray it stays somewhat recognizable to what I dream of it being. Great job, great hours, great oppurtunities to advance. Mutuals. Hoping the job stays the way I dream it to be. Ph's??? Please don't f**k it up! Respect the tradition that makes the job the greatest. Get on board. To those of us against the whole court decision, a couple hundred deadbeats shouldn't have the power to ruin what we all are training our asses off for. Stay strong brothers tow the line of the Heros that came before us. Anyone not for the tradition of this great institution will fail in more ways than you can imagine. Remember, no matter what, merit does matter! Go hard fellow 103's and above. Make the rest of the look bad every step of the way
If you do go, I thank you for the good advice you've been giving on here the past few years.
Terrible 1.5 run .... Need more running !!!! And more running
Ugh you guys are a bunch of jackasses.
If you used your head for 5 god damn seconds you'd realize that the black woman you're making fun of for no reason is not a PH but an EMT that's going to take the EMS agility test.
Now why don't you stop ****ting all over each other and random strangers on instagram and go do something constructive.
Obviously not all that strenuous. A greater hurdle for prospective EMTs is the height/weight requirement.
Ha! We'll see HopefulFF. I'm going to be 30 when we run! Yikes! I have been distance runner for about 10 years now and they say that you hit your best years for running in your 30's but something tells me there will be some 21 year old kid dusting me lol. Just got back in from a quick 5 miler with those straight west winds coming across the beach.....I love running but man that sucked. Gimme' the heat any day of the week. I know i'll prob be eating those words this summer but for right now thats all I can think of. I'll be in Puerto Rico for almost 3 weeks in March getting some hot runs in everyday. Can't wait!
And yes it sucked just missing this class. The past month was pretty depressing. What are you gonna do though? (shruggs.....) I'm over it now. I have to be. Its not healthy dwelling on that. The hardest part was losing all my partners. They are some of my best friends so work is a little strange but who cares. I'm in the summer class. That is what matters now. There are a whole lot of guys who would love to be in my current situation and I can't take it for granted. I worked hard enough the past 5 and 1/2 years to afford me the opportunity of being a part of the summer class before a lot of guys who scored higher than me. Moaning and bitching about not making the first class kind of throws all that out the window. 6 extra months in EMS for the best job the rest of my life.......Focus.......
You my friend are a mess. Trust me I have no interest in you considering me as a "brother". Could barely make 1.5 in 12 mins, talking about your fitness getting you through all this and that yet you still failed you medical first time around... Bashing me for being cocky yet look at your old posts. No wonder you bash other departments, are you resentful that PD gave you the boot?
Coming here picking on people because you OTJ, I showed all this to friends who been OTJ way longer than you and they just laughed and said "what a buff". Sorry sir I won't come here kissing your *** because you OTJ, but maybe you should show some more respect to people no matter what their personalities are, just because they might be working just as hard as you did when you weren't OTJ.
keep running in P.R. Enjoy yourself, but not too much.
Wait, what? I have no idea whats going on here and I'm not trying to get involved but one thing I always understood was that no matter who you are at this point or who you know on the job....you should be keeping your mouth shut. Just saying....this message board in littered with non sense right now.
