Week 2- Recruit Ingermann

Week 2

The second week is over and we are starting to really mesh as a group.  Our formations are improving and we are starting to get comfortable in our daily routines.  As I look around, I see people helping people all the time.  Whether it is just cleaning the break room, or hauling boxes inside from an instructor’s car, we really feel like we are all in this together. 

We had another busy week in the classroom, as we are covering a lot of material in a short period of time.  We have discovered that in order to do well on the weekly tests, study groups are important.  On Tuesday, we had the privilege of hearing many personal stories shared by Lakewood Agents that served as a reminder of the difficulties that LEO’s face every day, how awesome the responsibilities are, and just how vigilant we all must be. 

The PT this week was great.  We are getting a good feel for how important our physical fitness is to our job.  There is no question that we have all been a bit sore from the workouts and look forward to the weekend to recover.  After workouts like “Karen”, “Cindy” and running ten 100M sprints, a 3mile jog feels like a day off. 

We are all looking forward to the week ahead.  The challenges in the classroom, the blood and sweat of PT, and the synergy developing within the group are all making us stronger, smarter and closer to accomplishing our goal of becoming the best we can be.  I am proud to be a part of this group, and know that we are already developing relationships that will last a lifetime.
