    I've been here for 2 weeks & pleased the weather has been pretty nice for SA...just how I had hoped. I thought I was pretty, dang good at maps & then have been having fun getting lost at FSH ever since I got here, lol.
    As for PT, I am more than likely one of the ones that won't be meeting my PT test baseline first go around, so I've just been praying that I get past the first one w/out embarassing myself completely, ha. I've just had so much to do over the past couple months & dropped my routine because of traveling, etc, between all my work days & so have not been able to get into my normal workout routine for a while....Wahhhhh! I'm definitely not running my minutes...! We'll get through it!!!!!

    I'm right there with you with the running. I'm hoping the adrenaline rush during the PT test gets me through it. My new apartment complex has a pretty nice gym so I've been trying to utilize it as much as possible. I know we'll all be fine. Verbal coaching is permitted.

    You found an apartment already?! I'm STILL looking for a place to live, so I'm jealous, ha! I'm looking for houses though & have a pet, so different parameters I guess. I wasn't told before I came that I would be looking for a place to live BEFORE BOLC, so I was a little screwed to begin with. I'm just blessed I have family & friends here already in case of housing crisis, lol.

    I start fizzling out with "jogging/running" at 0.5 miles...& then complete the rest with fast walking & trotting....so, yeah, that's bad, ha.
