Advice on getting into shape needed.
I'm not new to the fire service, I've been a volunteer for about 5 yrs. Mainly I just helped out and had training from my station. Truth is sad to say, but yes I am a out of shape stay at home. Since my children have grown older over the years I am more available to do something for me. SO I did it, I took my FF1 class, and passed 4th in highest scores. I was the only female in the class, and I didn't have a hard time of things, the guys accepted me well, and was very helpful and respectful. I din't realize how out of shape I was until I class started. I tried getting myself in shape during that time but I have a ways to go. OUr department runs much more EMS than anything else so I guess it never dawned on me. Well to make a long story short, with the weather gettting warmer I have more chance to get out and exercise, what is some of the best way to help pre-pare myself. I have discovered going thru the class that I really enjoyed it and was good at it. Thing is I want to be better, I also want to get my FF2 and keep moving forward and get my EMT basic and medic. I realize to do this I have to get in better shape physically. Anyone got any ideas to help me. I live in the country and walking is tops on my list now that summer is around the corner.
Was I getting too carried away
