              Awesome. Did you get a drink after you were done? It took mine about 4 hours too and I was numb at the end and could not breathe, thought the skirt and the heels would help, but they did not. The feeling of passing was so great that I was smiling at myself the whole way back home

              I would not forgive myself if I fail in one or two pushups or situps, or even few seconds of the run. In fact, whenever I train I tell myself "push it! You don't want to fail in few seconds".

              I have heard that the failing rate is pretty high, things vary depending on people's responses and situations.

                  I passed mine on April in San Juan, PR. I make the PFT1 after a god bladders surgery 2 and a half month before. The hardest thing for me was the abs, because I felt like something braking inside, but I scored 101. You only need 80 to pass.

                  BTW, any one here know how to increase speed on the 1.5 mile. I'm making 15:28 (my best), 220 yards in 44 seconds, 20 push ups in 15 seconds and 25 sit ups in 45 seconds, but after making this things a can't make the 1.5 mile in the time. I have "time" (like 1.5 month before PFT2), but I want to be ready. I have 3 month practicing and came from 18:25 to 15:28 but isn't sufficient for me. Any help comment or PM.

                          • You have to get your body out of the comfort zone. Also running in the beach is great for the legs. Run few time in the beach. Then go to the street you are going to feel you are flying!!!

                              Oh nice. The academy is better than I expected. I'm housed in building 71 and it is nicer and has more commodities than I expected (tv, refrigerator). The food is OK. It's what you would get at a buffet. After a few weeks it gets old and I find myself going out into town to get food. I've also stocked up my fridge. We haven't ran much but if we are out of line we have done pushups, situps, planks, etc. Overall, it is a good experience. I failed the Spanish test so I am here until February!
