    go me

    :wiggle:

    I was wiped out, though. More than the practice sessions wipe me out. I thought I'd be taking it somewhere between 8:30 and 9am so I only ate a banana and some coffee @ 7:30.

    We waited and waited and waited and I didn't get to my CPAT until 12:30. :eek4:

    I finished with 39 seconds left and very little energy left as well.

    Congrats man. I knew you could do it. I take another one in two weeks. I've been working out my legs like a mad man. I got so close last time.

    thanks

    yea, the firefighters that are also PT's said to just stick with 30 minutes of cardio to get ready for it.

    i noticed the "runners" that were doing the CPAT today were doing really well. Most of them hardly broke a sweat.

    This CPAT certificate should be good for 6 months and a few other departments i'm applying to. There's one department that doesnt accept other's CPAT certs so I'll be doing theirs in February.

    in the meantime, i'm going to step up the weights and limit cardio to 3 times a week.
