210 Update - Cadet Smith
Week 3 was a killer! The class did not get off to a good start for various reasons, so it was 7 days of push ups, planks and wall squats at every break! This equated to approximately 160-250 push ups per day depending on our PT days.
At first I dreaded break time, but after a couple of days I welcomed it as it was refreshing compared to learning the Penal Code.
As of week 4, I have shaved 20 seconds off my mile and a half mile run, increased my number and quality of push ups (by the time this Academy ends we will all look like Popeye), completed a 3 mile run with several other cadets, had a quiz and my first major test. I did well on the test, but there is always room for improvement. Before I know it we will be in the pistol range, on the driving track and learning defensive tactics. The time is flying by, but I’m enjoying every minute of it.
