I just PT'd with my recruiter yesterday. Im pretty much on track, just gotta keep doin situps.

I'm struggling to get the situps done in the required amount of time.  I can do the correct number, but I always come up short at the 1 minute mark.  We still have plenty of time to improve though

Back when it was warmer out I was running a lot and able to beat the 12:51. I'm afraid to know what I'd run now. But the pushups have always been my weak spot

I was averaging 9:45 when it was warm. Now Im around 11:00 and its only in the low 30's here. I've been doing 15-20 miles on the bike every day though instead of running outside. Seems to be helping...

The pushups are tough. Try to do half pushups like only going half way up for 10 quick reps than do a full push up. Do that till you get to 10 full push ups. Most people struggle with the first half of the push up rather than the lock on the top half. That's what I have been doing and it really helps.

if you guys are looking to get your push up number up, try this: start off with diamond push ups, burn out on those. adjust your arms, go straight into regular push ups, burn out. then adjust your arms again into a wide push up, burn out again. repeat as many times as you can with a decent amount of rest in between..i started this push up workout about 2 months ago, i could do 15-20 push ups max and now i can do 60 straight, not that much of a struggle.

if you guys are looking to get your push up number up, try this:

Yeah, I can confirm that this works..haha. I added an extra 10 push ups in 5 days with very little enthusiasm. I did maybe 75-100 push ups throughout the day for 5 days, and by the end, I was able to crank out an extra 10 that weren't there before.

So, maybe by the time we head out to Cape May I can add an extra 30? Haha, maybe wishful thinking.

I agree newms...I added 7ish in a matter of a few days.

And yeah I'm feeling pretty nervous. I don't think it has totally sunk in yet but my sleep schedule is all messed up. I lay in bed until 5am every night. I usually don't do that unless I'm nervous about something

It hit me yesterday when I remembered to put in my 'official' two week notice to my second job - they already knew the situation, but needed an e-mail to verify, haha.

And then I realized that next weekend will be the best and only time for me to get the bulk of my stuff down to the basement, throw out all the rest of it that I won't need, and scrub down the house....I think that makes me more nervous!  It's going to take a full 20 hours at least.

CaptNick,

I second that song! have you listened to Joe Esposito - You're The Best - from Karate Kid? haha simply amazing.

I'm pretty jealous of this company, you guys are already pretty tight and there are a lot of you. Thus far only one person with the same ship date as me is on this forum... we might be a pretty small company. You all will have a blast!

Going to second the Five Finger Death Punch and Skillet. I run to Disturbed (I'm Alive and Sons of Plunder) and Godsmack (I am, Good Day to Die) a lot as well. Good consistent beats. Really feelin' Shinedown's Diamond Eyes too! Definitely my song of the moment.

"I'm on the front line
Don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye my weakness
So long to the regret
I now I see the world through Diamond Eyes..."

Brilliant.
