Today I started the challenge off right. Woke up a 405, got ready headed to the gym, had a great RT session and then followed that with a 60 minute run. I managed to go 7.7 miles but i have to admit it was hurting a bit. My running stamina is definitely down since the last challenge. Nearing the end of December I was getting quite sick of cardio so I took a bit of a break from the machines and from spinning. I weighed in today at 193 lbs.
I took the first serious step towards the career change and I signed up for the physical test at the University of Waterloo http://uwfitness.uwaterloo.ca/firefighter/cpat_ov.html, Tis test is what has detered me previously from making a full push. I think that I can blow it out of the water but it looks like I only have one chance to do it as I wont be around for the actual testing day so it is do or die.
