    Both of you gentlemen - I'd politely ask for the sake of everyone else on the forum that you move your disagreement elsewhere. I'm not commenting on the merits of either of your arguments, but it makes this forum feel more like a high school lunchroom than we all know it is. Let's try and stay focused and civil, no? Lots of important stuff coming up for a lot of us to talk about - investigations, cpat, training and conditioning issues, etc etc...

    I have no beef with you Jukez, but can we stop acting like a bunch of 3rd graders. Does it make you feel better digging up past posts just to try to bash someone. I know you don't care but me and a lot of other people on here really want to here from the guys OTJ, whether you agree with their posts or not. We are all trying to land the greatest job in the world, so lets not bash anyone on here whether the OTJ guys, promos, PHs, or OC guys/gals.

    P.S. I was brought up with "IF YOU DON'T HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO SAY DON'T SAY NOTHING"

    So can everyone please stop arguing.

    Thanks

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.......
    I'm kinda bummed out I'm going on vacation. Weightrooms in Italy are a joke and I've been progressing so well lately haha. But I hear you dude. The cold does suck. I ran over the Wburg Bridge yesterday and the wind feels like it's going to rip your face off haha. Do you have any set regiment for when you're away? I could use some help. I'm gonna have to stick to calisthenics I'm guessing. Also being only 21, should I be lucky enough to get to the academy, I'm worried about the older guys who are either military, still ****ed about 6019, or both, running circles around me like I'm a little kid haha.

    keep running in P.R. Enjoy yourself, but not too much.
    Haha - the good ol' days of youth. Well I'll say this much - I ran my fastest marathon (of the five I've run) last year when I was 32. In my experience in life I find that age has its benefits (maturity, perspective, experience itself) that can be beneficial at the Rock and on the job, and youth has its benefits (body recoups quicker, being able to go balls to the wall on no sleep day-after-day) so it'll probably all level out in the end.

    No worries, that was my last post towards that guy. There's other people on this forum who are OTJ way longer than him yet they don't talk to us the way this guy does. It is what it is.

    Manhattan Medic, or others at the Rock now - I'd be curious to hear about your experience so far at the Rock outside of the physical aspects. We all know we have to be prepared physically, but being able to run a fast few miles or carry a weight vest around won't make anyone a firefighter or even a peon proby. How have you found the actual technical training? What kinds of things have you been studying/practicing/etc?

    Fwiw, I think the answer is going to be something along the lines of "wait and find out for yourself buddy..."

    It says to cross out and initial all mistakes. It says don't use White out or correction tape.

    I made a copy of mine so if I mess anything up I can just redo it rather than questions coming up later about what I crossed out, etc.

    Good idea, I wrote mine in pencil, but realized after I rewrote in pen it was a mistake. Damn!

    I think as a proby the last thing one should be thinking about is sports. If fortunate enough to get to that point our heads should be focused on absorbing as much info as possible from senior guys. It would be interesting to hear if it is possible though

    Have fun in pr don't know where your going but checkout the northwest tip if you get a chance I lived in a town called aguadilla for 3 an a half years and still go there 4 or 5 times a winter and stay with friends on the coast guard base. Also the **** fighting season just started so soak up the culture

    Just did 6 mins on the stairs with 50 lbs, 5 mins with 40 lbs and 3mins20 seconds with 70 lbs with an assortment of workouts in between. Keepin my heart rate up. No breaks! I'm not gonna worry about running until it gets a little nicer out. Hows everyone's workouts going? Any good circuits? I find doing stairs, straight into pushups (with my vest on), walking 40 lb weights across the gym and back (to recreate the equipment carry) right to shoulder press then right to sit ups/leg raises works well for me. Then murder it all at the end with pull ups, dips and more pushups. By set number three I'm dying lol.
