          • I did 45 pushups for my PFT1, and 29 situps. I was impressed coz I thought I would do better with situps but I did not. I actually hate running but I am trying to learn how to like it. I am still working on my breathing when I run and it is still not good. It feels good like today when I give myself an excuse not to train coz I did yesterday and the day before.

            • Pretty good. I run 3 miles 5 days a week. Do push ups and sit ups everyday. I also do t25 or insanity. I hate running and pretty much I have learned to like it. On the good side I have lost 18 pounds since I started running.

              For the breathing are you breathing through your nose or mouth? I do it through the mouth seems to work better for me.

              • I breathe rapidly but very shallow that my muscles don't get enough O2 and thus I get tired quickly. I try to breath from my nose but I don't keep it that way often. My friend told me to try and breathe slower so I can keep going.

                  Yup. You need to keep trying until you find the one that work best for you. If you havent try breathing through your mouth i will suggest you try it. I suck at breathing through the nose and i just wears me out so damn quickly!!! Just start by running with your mouth slightly open. Why i suggest this; mouth opening is way bigger than your nostrils which means more O2 for you. Two by leaving your mouth slightly open, air is goes through your mouth directly into your lungs, by basically doing nothing. Lastly use your stomach instead of your chest. But again. You need to try different types of breathing and see which one is best for you.

                        No, the examiner didn't imply i was lying just would say that i was doing something like moving too much.

                          I spoke to my case manager because mine is also due on the 29th and I still have not gotten the cards. I also received the email on Friday. She said there is a grace period for the cards. She did ask for my mailing address again.

As for your SF-50, you MAYBE required to upload it if you fall under the age requirement and or CTAP/ICTAP. That is all listed at the very bottom of the announcement. However, I believe I did upload my SF-50 anyway since I had one.
                              Thank you very much! I am currently waiting for a test date. God bless.

                              • Since my poly is Tuesday, would it be a bad idea to start thinking over things I've done in the past so that when I go in, I'm confident with the answers I give, instead of going in and trying to remember, and not be confident?

                                Also, I'm 32. I know they will ask about cheating in school. Do you think they'll go back all the way to high school, because I honestly cannot quantify that answer.
