Wow, has it been this long sice I last posted? Well, I'm about 5 weeks in at the Police Training Institute in Champaign. So far things are going well. I've had some long days, but they are fewer and farther between now. We are also doing more hands on, fun stuff now and less classroom stuff. I've learned a lot with a lot yet to go. My shooting has improved which is good, but I'm learning a lot of officer safety stuff. Cop Speed and Warrior Mondset are some of my new keywords. I got pepper sprayed last week. It sucks! I still have to get tazed in a couple weeks too, so I have that going for me. I have some long days, but the weeks are flying by.
My fitness is a question mark at this point. We have PT 3x/wk but it's not what I'm used to. I'm trying to get as much out of it as I can with all the push ups, situps, pull ups, etc. I'm also working on my speed as much as I can. I ran the mile in just over 6 minutes last week. I was pretty happy with it actually since I wasn't even planning on running it. I'm really missing my long trail runs though. I can't wait to get beack and get going again.
