  • The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

    So I am not sure on the right forum to put this in, but seems to fit here.

    GOOD I passed all portions of the Physical Agility test for the first time. To those of you having trouble with the run, just go out and run, run, and then run a little farther. I have been trying for a year, so if I can do it, anyone can.

    BAD While I passed the run, I only had 6 seconds to spare. I did 1.5 miles in 12:45. So I am headed out to run some more.

    UGLY I was honest and upfront with my employer about wanting a career in law enforcement, and sure enough was let go when they needed to trim the bottom line. So here is what I concluded, I would rather be unemployed and able to look myself in the mirror, than have lied. I am in the process of getting a new job, until I get hired on with a dept. , but it sure does suck to get fired for being truthful.

    That is my story kids, if you take anything away from it, be this. NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS! and if you want something bad enough, you will not stop until you are there!

    Good for you. 12:45 ain't exactly 'track star' status, but you are ahead of at least 50 percent of other recruits. Keep going a little bit at a time, and you'll get that time down significantly.

    IMHO, the best way to train is to run longer distances (2.5 to 3 miles) three or four times a week at a slightly slower pace; then "bust it out" when you only have to run half the distance.

    As the old saying goes, "It is better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you're not."

    Keep at it, and you'll be okay in the long run.
