    Do yourselves a favor and be sure you're running on asphalt. That's what you'll be running on at the Rock and it feels different than the running surface at CSI. Especially if you get shin splints. Getting used to the hard surface now will help you later.

    Oh i definitely know how it feels lol, been running on strictly asphalt for the last month. I like doing csi though to give my knees a break. Its just so much easier to walk outside my door and run on asphalt than to drive to csi, but if people are doing group runs there im down

    They call the main road there the loop and it's about 3.5 or 4 miles. I ran on that a lot between classes. Clove Lakes park is a great run as well, especially if you do the trails.

    I need to do some trails, I've been running around my complex which is good because its the same size as a track,but doing circles is boring. Its just so convenient lol

    That campus is so crowded now. I just graduated and every year its been getting worst. With all of the traffic and people rushing everywhere it would be pretty dangerous to run that road now lol.

    I'm running on asphalt as well .... Shin splints are painful. What's good for shin splints ? I already have a good pair of running shoes. What else can I do ?

    Stretch and strengthen your calves. Stretch your heels also, all these can lessen it from occurring.

    Stretching really good before running, a good cool down, and icing after each run works for me

    Yea about 30-40 minutes, it's only 6-7 miles from where I used to live but there is no quick way to any parkways. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it though. For now I'll be damned if I move two blocks from the beach and don't get at least one summer season out of it lol.

    Mine just kind of went away the more I ran. Ice after runs and stretching like everyones been saying. And aspirin. I never was a great runner anyway so I probably had some issues with my form that didn't help. If you have the same problem you should check into a few running websites for some tips. The PT at the Rock is rough as it is; you certainly don't want to have to deal with shin splints.

    People refer to several different running injuries as 'shin splints' and after years of dealing with them (and with physical therapists) the most common causes I've found fall into 1. trying to increase mileage too quickly, 2. old running shoes. Don't try to go from zero miles to 15 miles at 8-minute pace immediately. It doesn't work. Be patient and build up.

    I would recommend that you do NOT try to run through an injury. Fix the problem. Get new running shoes from a store like Jack Rabbit that can give you good expert advice on what you should be wearing. And if you are pained, ibuprofen, alternate ice and stretch, and relax.

    Somewhere in the 700's. But you still have people from the EMT list eligible and who know's whats going to happen with the priority hires.

    Important to remember that they aren't "up to" any number on the OC list. They have sent packages to about 700 but not a single one is at the Rock now or guaranteed a seat in the academy for the July class. Way things shake out, #1 on the OC list might not be in the academy until January of 2014. I hope and expect that to not be the case, but sit tight. Things happen slowly and guesstimating will become more accurate once we know the composition of the July class.

    Bored at work, figured we could all talk about where we run and what cool trails anyone knows of. Be nice to run somewhere new because I'm tired of running the same route. I run in Charles Park in Howard Beach, it's a half mile blacktop walking path on Jamaica Bay. It's nice but I'm tired of running in circles. A nice park to run in is MacNeil Park in College Point, some nice paths right on Flushing Bay and with a nice view of the city. I used to run on the boardwalk in Long Beach when they still had a boardwalk.

    I dont have any DP-152 form in my packet. Page 3 of the FF Candidates Addendum sheet says that all you need to establish military credit is your DD-214. As long as the DD-214 shows that you served in a TIME of war, youre good to go. If youve served anytime within the last 20 years, then youre eligible.

    You may be looking at page 21 of the CPD-B booklet. If thats the case then you should notice that the DP-152 is only one of 3 forms use can use to establish veteran credit. If you got the DD-214 then dont worry about the DP-152 or the DP-153.
