No gym for me this weekend because I had class today and have class tomorrow. Lots of lifting, pulling, dragging hose, and sweating out in the heat (and we weren't even in gear!). My only job right now is drinking water. :)

I forgot my training log again.. We did a full body workout as I am busy with class this week. We were outside all last night and will be doing more of the same tomorrow and this weekend. Advancing and pulling hose into a structure.

Cardio: 30 min. on the treadmill, 8%, 3.3 mph.

Today's workout was kinda "maintenance". Tomorrow's class will be very physically demanding so I didn't want to push myself too much or set myself up for injury.

Yesterday my mom and I went into DC and had so much delicious food. I planned on taking more pictures of it to share here, but.. that didn't happen. I had a vegan grilled cheese with tempeh bacon and tomato plus soy chixin nuggets w/ BBQ sauce (pictured below). Later for dinner we ate at a falafel place with a toppings bar and fries. I also picked up a couple of desserts. :)

We hadn't done pullups in a while, this is the most I've actually ever been able to put out. 20 min. of boring indoor cardio on the treadmill due to rain.

Sorry to be catching this so late in the game, but I wanted to wish you the best of luck. Where are you training? I work for Hampton Fire and Rescue (Also in VA)

Thank you!! I'm training all the way up in Prince William County but I live about 40min south of there. That must be a beautiful area to work in! How long have you been there?

Beautiful? LOL...I appreciate the sentiment but its mostly low-income urban sprawl. If you mean that its close to the bay and the ocean, then yes, that is nice, but avoiding the massive number of tourists is more of a priority than enjoying the natural beauty, unfortunately. I was hired in Oct 2005, so almost 7 years. Everyone here is required to be an EMT-Intermediate (or higher) as well as a Firefighter.

Hahaha I had the beach access in mind, yeah. The EMT requirement seems pretty standard now, at least in our area.

Thanks decbolton!
