    Yea I started taking Airborne yesterday when I felt it coming on but it seems my body said "nice try" and went full sickness overnight. Still taking it though, thanks.

    Hey guys can't believe I just found this thread.... Little background I am 29 did 5 years in the navy currently working for a agency that inspects fire safety on cruise ships. About to go through this process my intake is this month and sounds like this will be a long process I'm sure my wife will be even more pleased. I will spend the night backtracking this thread to read up on what I'm in for good luck to you guys heading into the academy that was my dream when I was 21 maybe I'll still get there. Btw from Staten Island if anyone wants to contact me who is on the same step as me my score was 101

    so if 1/17 is the date for administrative processing, are there any other days we'd have to go to the academy before 1/27? I thought someone mentioned picking up gear and stuff like that, is that a separate day?

    in a previous post for the last class...i read that they had orientation the Monday before the academy. So looks like possible orientation Monday the 20th and academy on Monday the 27th

    I was thinking what ever we planned to do on 1/20 will be taking place on 1/17 instead

    Orientation day is first, then you go to pick up your gear. I would assume OD is a week before the academy begins which is 1/27. So the week of orientation day, you guys pick up gear so you have it for the first day of the academy.
    And picking up you gear is not a easy day, the DIs will be there, no different from the Rock. At any time, you can be doing push-ups. Lol

    OK, thanks. So if orientation day = administrative processing day, then it's 2 days down at the rock between the run and day 1 of the academy

    Drink at least two packets of Emergen-C(1,000mg Vitamin C) in the morning and I sometimes drink a third one in the night. You could even drink two packets before bed. Helps me out a lot when I'm feeling sick.

Thank you
    Heads up: once the clock strikes 0700 on the day of your run you are in their hands. Shut the **** up, stay anonymous, and do as told, and it will be relatively easy. I can't remember the time frame but you'll definitely be done before noon, probably much earlier.

    You run twice. This one, which only has to be under 13, and then sometime in the first week of the academy.

    Rest. Maybe drink a ****load of dayquil on the run day. If you're in good enough shape adrenalin should get you through the run on the day of.

    Untrue. Antibiotics aren't going to do **** for a viral infection, which is what he's likely to have.

    I agree, I jsut didnt wanna say anything. All that vita pac and airborne are BS, which is why they get sued every year. Theres been many studies that show that theres no proof that they have any affect, including vitamin C. Drink a lot of water, make sure your getting your calories in and get rest because all you can do is make sure you have enough energy and adrenaline for the run (which you probably will). You may feel like **** but you make it through. For all you guys who are sick out there and are doing the run, dont worry you got this!

    They are right, scientifically proven they don't work. Your body can only process a certain amount of vitamin C at a time. So when you take 1,000 mg or whatever of vitamin C your body will take what it needs and send the rest to get ****ed out.

    The reason people swear by these things or drinking a lot of OJ is because making sure your body is sufficiently hydrated is the real way so your body can rid the wastes inside it.

    Anyone running on the 9th that currently resides in the bay ridge area (preferably Dyker Heights) want to carpool? PM me if you do.
