      I started out running 1.5 mile but recently uped it to 3 miles.. In the nj state police academy you run every day , each week miles increase by 10% ( im not i academy still in process)

        No bag, but we did have full duty belt and vest... sometimes even our long baton which we had to remove from the duty belt and carry(pain in the ***).

          We rarely got breaks to hydrate during our 1 to 1.5 hours of cardio/modified crossfit workouts. Our instructors gave us the reasoning that out on the street if we got into a fight for our life we wouldn't get a chance to stop for a water break... We also were yelled at for stopping to tie our shoes for that same reasoning.

          To try and balance this out, we all tried to consume a lot of water in the morning and early afternoon, as our physical training was always the last two hours of the day.

          One person in my class had to quit due to a serious medical issue that could have been caused by dehydration. Other than that, the rest of us survived. I know I would have done better with more water.

            When we were done a run we were instructed to hydrate, even if not thirsty.
            The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                I attended a local academy in east tx. We ran somewhere between 3X per week and every day that week (weekdays). It really depended on subject matter at the time, if someone ****ed off the instructor, etc.

                We would usually cover 2-4miles and mix in planks, pushups, situps, yada yada yada throughout the run.
