in 22-23 minutes
(with a 45lb pack )
cool i doubt i could do that without the 45 pounds
my knees are fucking :emo: about. not something I plan on doing too often, but good to know.
Im supposed to be able to run 1.5 miles in 11 minutes. How doable is this?
I would think very doable. I ran a 7 minute mile in 5th grade
Agreed, shouldn't be that hard.
Well i just got back into working out but i need to get some cardio in. I htink im going to start the light bulb. But yeah, you need to be able to run 1.5 miles in 11 minutes, and thats just a benchmark, they're looking for high 9's.
chase a donut
that's why i started running as well
Hahahahahh that other guy didn't even bother looking.
On november 3 I started working out again, and started with Cardio on an elliptical. After 25 min I was spent.
On Tuesday, I ran on a track for the first time and went 2.5 miles in 28 min. It was my first time to successfully run without use of a treadmill or machine for over 2 miles in my life. Not great time, but I feel accomplished.
Unfortunately, I am being derailed by a nasty nasty cold right now. FTL.
In high school when we had to do a mile run I remember I'd sprint the first half mile in like 2.5 minutes then walk the rest and I'd get an 8 minute mile easily
I only did it that way because it was weight training class and if I jogged the whole mile I'd be too out of breath to work out for the first 10 minutes after running anwyay.
That's a lot. This is what I will have to do to pass the physical requirements for SFPD:
Who is that Stifler?
^ that definitely seems a bit more demanding. I guess you need to be in great shape in order to arrest the rich CT bastids who yell at you when you give them tickets for speeding in their porches
I'll be getting beat up by crackheads in the wee hours of the morning
relax dude, was a friendly pre-pig to pre-pig joke. Everywhere has crime, and unfortunately it's going up especially in places all around the country where there's people doing meth like crazy and creating even more.
None, I'm 19 and minimum age is 21. I've wanted to be a cop since I was a kid, and my reasons now have changed, but I still want it and nothing else in life for a career.
I'll start applying when I'm a year or so away from having my Bachelors degree in sociology (will be a junior next fall, so I'll probably start applying at 21 years old).
For the SFPD there is no real academy in the classical sense. You go a few hours a day, 5 days a week, for a few months for physical stuff and classroom stuff I believe. This is all paid, but probably not well-paid. After the required amount of time and training has been completed, then they stick you in the field with a coaching officer at your side until your rookie phase is over. I would imagine the other departments around here are the same.
SFPD is my main choice because I've lived here my whole life and would love to help people in my community, but if they aren't hiring at the time then I'll go to Oakland PD. THAT will be fun
SFPD is highly sought after and I really need to make myself look good. I've been telling myself that a BA will get me hired for sure, but really it's not enough when there is such a huge amount of competition. I'm worried because I quit my first real job under really bad terms with my boss, and even though he won't be there for the police department to ask about my behavior, I'm sure they have ways of finding out. (boss was major asshole, I got fed up after months of getting treated like shit and sent a company-wide email telling him off in a very eloquent manner which cited his horribly unprofessional behavior on many occasions, he quit because of it... C.O.O. of pretty wealthy company lol).
I've done some community service, but I should definitely do more. I really just have to stop spending time laying around and get to it, but if I'm too busy I don't work out and see my friends enough, so I help my future but make myself feel like shit at the time.
i used to be able to run easy 5:30 miles all the time back in high school, i miss those days
You'll do fine. Practice and good diet will get you running lengths you wouldn't have previously thought you're capable of. Determination is also one of the major factors with long distance running, and you sound pretty determined
and thanks for the advice, stuff like this really helps. Much appreciated.
