    Another thing I didn't understand is that he look Caucasians. But I can not say for sure because I never ask is race.

    So 8 guys today and 4 guys yesterday?

    The next run is the 15th? I wonder why there is such a big break in between? Also, will they have to to get OC or more PH guys after the 15th to fill those spots?

    They can only hire 128 black candidates and 64 Latino candidates for this class. The Ph list have more Latino candidates than black. What ever black candidates that are going to get hire will be in this class. A lot of ph thats on the PH list have not receive their run letter. I know of about 10 or so that have not receive their run letter as of yet. A lot of the Ph that I do speck to stated to me that they know of guys that did not get their letter also. I don't know how they are going about calling people from the Ph list because there are guys that are above me that have not receive their run letter.

    I don't believe that they can hire more Ph candidates then stated in the court order. So I think they will be pulling from the Oc list. Just my feeling. The information that my mentor gave to me is that if a lot of ems and ph fail the run they will have another run with Oc guys before the 22nd.

    I have no clue. I hate how this info (along with other numbers) aren't accessible, makes the whole situation so much more stressful haha

    Thank god for Fdnyman, and others, who have been giving us all the info on the PH situation. With the lack of info about the rest of the process, I'm surprised we have so much info on the PH. Thanks guys, keep it coming.

    The hiring process is as about as transparent as the Obama presidency so ya basically have to go by word of mouth until you get called. It was bad enough when you were mostly just competing with other OC guys so it's doubley scrwed up now that you have EMS and PHs thrown in the mix.

    You want to turn bike riding from a leisurely ride into actual training? Get a fixed gear. Forget the hipster stigma you can find a road bike converted to fixed gear for cheap and trust me you will feel it when you are going up hill, you just have to put your head down and power through it. You never stop pedaling so it is literally a non-stop workout.

    This guy is eccentric but his site is like an encyclopedia:

    http://www.sheldonbrown.com/fixed.html#gearing

    If you do choose a fixed gear read the section about gear ratios to make sure you don't get a bike thats too easy or too hard to ride. You want a teeth count in the high-30s to low-40s for your gear.

    I have a single speed bike that still allows you to coast if you want to and it's awesome. I ride around prospect park every now and then and the hill on the back side is definitely a workout. Gets easier every time though. I like not having gears because I know that it is my legs doing the work.

    Yeah the non Coasting thing bothers me. If I have to slow down my legs would have to slow down right away.

    The 2 miles is really just a warm up before i go to the gym to workout my upper body. Plus it works as an active recovery day. Plus the extra miles per week cant hurt. And yes the rest is interval training. "sprints" is something kinda different so I wouldnt call them that.

    For workouts 1-15 reference to page 580 http://www.firehouse.com/forums/t121...0/#post1374062 (FDNY Exam 2000)

    (16)2 miles at comfortable pace before upper-body workout
    (17) (VERY HOT DAY, took it easy) 2mile fartlek style run. Ran the curves slow straights fast
    *Stairmill - week 2
    (18) Took the day off but would have ran the 2 miles.
    (19) 1200m warm up. 4 1200m in 5:15(7min mile pace) 2min rest
    (20) 2 miles at comfortable pace before upper-body workout
    (21) 1600m warm up
    6 200m 40s rest 1:45
    6 100m strides, rest walk back to start
    1600m cool down.
    (22) Didn't run on July 4th (would have been 2 miles before upper body workout)
    (23) 2 3/4 miles at 7:08min mile pace (19:37)
    (24) 2 miles at comfortable pace before upper-body workout
    (25) 1200m warm up
    six 400m at 80sec with 2min rest
    1200m cool down

    This workout was incredibly hard. Last lap I could not have gone much faster even if I wanted. I was really hurting by the last 400

    I'd say that they are at list number 1, because no one from the OC has been hired yet.
