It’s been weeks since I’ve updated this blog and I apologize. Friday was the end of week 8 which means I’m at the halfway point. Only 8 more to go. Supposedly the hardest part is over. The last 2 weeks was pure defensive tactics. I’m beat and battered and suffered a groin sprain. I made it though. DT was mentally and physically exhausting. I’m a fighting tank machine but it didn’t come easily.
Hardcore training for 8 hours a day and not eating enough because you don’t want to toss cookies all over your partners during training. By the end of the day you are delirious and running on fumes. It’s done thank god and it’s time for the fun stuff like firearms and vehicle ops.
Monday will probably be the last bad day. We have to get tased again. I have major anxiety about it because the first time was horrible. Just thinking about the instructor saying “taser, taser” makes me wanna hurl. I’m so done being tortured. At least we earned the privileged of having gatorade and more phone time during the week. Life sucks so bad right now. This is literally the hardest thing I’ve ever done, EVER. I’ve grown tremendously in 8 weeks.
