  • I haven't gotten any emails or updates since the 8/18. I did Equip the night before, passed my PFT1 on the 21st and my VBT/SI is already complete and passed from a previous opening, it is my only green check mark.

    They must be pretty backed up, I remember getting an email every few days with information the last notice.

          Congrats! That's big time. Waiting to take mine for a different agency. Can't imagine making it this far then failing out on that. I know it happens I just hope it ain't me!

                        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.
                        Your best bet to improve your run is running hills. You should run at least 3 days a week. Try to always run more than 1.5 miles, which will make just running a 1.5 miles easier. I usually do 2.5 miles on Monday, 1.5-2 miles Wed. but at the fastest pace I can handle, and then Fri. or Sat. I'll do 4 miles. Every run I do includes a hill or two. If you are running on a track firgure out what your pace is for 1 lap then try to knock off 25-50% of that time on every other lap.
                        Just my version, but of course do what works best for you without causing injury. And don't forget to do some light leg workouts in between. There are great apps and websites out there to help you setup a workout...here's a few www.competitor.com, www.runnersworld.com, app: workout trainer

                        Good luck!

                                Cant see it.

                                Great! Good luck on your VBT/SI. Mine was on Sept 3. No results yet. Was pretty nerve wracking for me. They made me wait for a while, then they did the interview. I think i did very well on the SI. Not so sure on the vbt. Everything took almost 4hrs.

                                Everything is happening so quickly! Here is my timeline, if it helps anyone.
