Stop making up excuses before you even fail it. Which you will. Police Officers are winners. They are wired that way. Your defeatist, negative attitude and excuse making won't be welcomed at any Police station.

I think this should moved to the Use of Force section. I actually am looking at rubbing some Lakota Topical Rub to the next resistant suspect. It may even smell better.

And when I pull the jar out maybe I will hear the call of the loon in the background.

By "hear the loon" I'm assuming you mean SD mumbling in the background

How on earth are you even going to attempt police work if you are worried about vaulting over a bar? I hope to hell someone in recruiting is able to spot you before you fall through the cracks. I'm not getting my hopes up but for the love of Pete find another career. If I'm on the road and require backup I need someone who is capable and not just another witness.

That would require her to get to the scene without crashing her vehicle!

Or screaming after getting the Lakota rub in her eyes again.

SD, I'm not sure why you even mentioned OC.

I guess it's late to post this at all but if it benefits anyone else....

When I applied to the BC Sheriffs I ran the SOPAT in 3:43 my first try. I was to be in a spring 2001 class but there was an opening in the August 2000 class and I was called and offered the early spot. I was 6 weeks into a severe ankle sprain but there wasn't a chance in hell I was going to pass the oportunity despite the doctor warning that I stay off the ankle for 8 weeks. First day of training you are required to pass the SOPAT again, if you fail your out. I mentioned my ankle injury to one of the test adminsitrators and he helped me tape the ankle.

I decided 4:45 was my goal. I had nothing to prove and all I needed to do was pass at 4:45 and not break or re-sprain the ankle any of which would have seen me waiting for the spring class. I relaxed and thought I was taking it easy. No pressure and easy on the stairs. Ended up finishing with a 3:02. Best time I've ever had.

Anyway, hope you did well.

Not so good. It kicked my ass, but I'll be back and I'll kick ass and take names in the process next time. I forgot that the push is not only pushing 70 lbs, but it's also 70 lbs of resistance as well. Interestingly enough, I had no real issues with the vault. I was also surprised with the amount of men who struggled with it. The only people who made it look like a cake walk were the ones re-doing it.

OC is the active ingredient in Lakota topical rub. That's why it causes such an intense burning, especially if you apply it after a hot shower.

Yeah I am sure it had nothing to do with your defeatist attitude from the very beginning.

The men likely strugged with the vault because of a lactic acid build up, and it's harder to vault your body weight if you're bigger as males usually are.

Bottom line, the POPAT is harder and doing these tests is 85% mental, I'll tell anyone that.

No it's not. OC stands for oleoresin capsicum. The topical rub doesn't contain that, the manufacturer claims it contains capsaicin. While they are similar they're not the same.

I was referring to struggling with the push/pull machine.

As for vaulting, I'm not exactly tiny myself, so it would only be natural for it to be more difficult to vault my body weight. It doesn't help that the majority of my strength is in my legs and not my arms, unlike most males.

I was actually feeling really good about running it that morning and right when I started. My first lap was completely flawless and almost right on time too (26 seconds). Then I threw myself off on the second lap and it all went downhill from there, so chances are there was some mental aspects to it too.

I'll train hard, and get back at it again.

Did you gas out before the 6th lap or did you have trouble with the push-pull or the carry?
It's not how hard you hit, it's how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.
