well it depends guys..for some push ups are easy.for me running is easy..cos i've been doin it for over 10 yrs now..long distance running and x-country running is what i've done all my life...now push ups might seem easier to you but not to me.

yes the time is correct 28:12:32 and if u know anythng about running...that is not a fast time..even though the olympic medal was won in few seconds less time..in long distance running 1 min behind is a huge difference.
That personal best time came to the canadian record holder in 10,000 jeff schiebler in 2003.

Hi Leo,

I know something about running - quite a lot actually.  28:12 is pretty damn fast.  In fact, if you ran that time at this year's national 10,000 metre championships, you would have lapped everybody else in the race.  People of your calibre tend to win a lot of races, so can you post some results for us?  Thanks.

Or at least provincial champion.I call BS.Proably a guy who knows nothing about running and just made up some time to seem quick.Anything below 40 minutes is amazing to me.

before you guys barrage me with tons of questions etc.
here is my profile.

http://www.athletics.ca/article.asp?id=9320

And I apologize in advance I was a little off with my Personal Best time in 10,000 and off by a lot in distance running standards.
My time was 29:08.86 sorry about the initial time.

If that linked page is you, why DID your profile (before you rapidly deleted the information) indicate that you were a NCIO  with the HMCS Tecumseh in Calgary... which is a long way from Vernon, BC?

Enquiring minds wanna know.

Well assuming that is you ( and thats not to be rude, just honest, anyone can claim to be anything on here...for example, I am maybe NOT be a Mud Recce Man  ;D) that is all well and good.  And impressive.

But you still have to do the 19 pushups.

Sucks eh?

Sorta like university.  To get in the university you want, you have to meet their min marks for entrance, or whatever the critieria.

If you are missing 3 marks in say, Underwater Basket Weaving for entrance, your options usually are to

1.  study UBW more and bring your marks up
2.  apply to a different university.

Maybe the 3 extra pushups won't make you a better pilot, maybe they will, I have no idea.  I DO know that...until you DO get 19...ya, no flying for you with the CF.

Would say...a NHL, NFL, NBA team, or the RCMP or a SWAT team or a Firefighter academy lower there "minimum standards"?

Would you want them to?  Would you like to see me out there for Team Canada the next Winter Olympics?  Cause I can skate, thats for sure...but to what standard??

You want to see MRM as center when the puck drops and its for the gold?

Believe me...you don't.

And Joe and Jane Civie don't want to see that sort of thing with our military.

Remember we are talking the minimum standard here...MINIMUM!

HMCS Tecumseh in summer of 06 when i was living.training in calgary..now back home in BC..so changed it
and mud recca thanks for all those analigies.
I was never complaining about the push ups and iam not complaining about it now. I think PT is a great thing. All I said was people like me who failed the PT due to 3 less push ups get another chance. Even though PT wasn't the only reason I didn't make it as pilot.

Anyhow I did pass my PT for reserves this past summer and was able to do exactly 20 push ups before I fell to the floor.

So sincere apologies to anyone who I confused a bit.

According to the profile you linked to, you are an elementary school teacher.  Obviously not a Language Arts, English or typing teacher.

Let me get this straight:  you were living/training in Calgary and working at HMCS Tecumseh in Calgary in the summer of 2006 and thus posted your profile as being from there...

... but you just passed your PT test for the reserves this past summer (summer of 2006 to be clear).


So-- help me out a bit here  -- how did you come to be employed at HMCS Tecumseh in the summer of 2006 if you just passed your PT test in the summer of 2006.

To be frank, I am calling horse crap on your link to *you*.

... and may I remind you of your post of March 6, 2006 when you stated thus:

Gents
how are you? I am currently waiting to hear for my ROTP AF Pilot application. My ACS test is scheduled for May and I haven't heard anything in regards to my Physical Test.
I've been working out regularly for the past few weeks and I tested myself today.

5km run - 18min 44sec. (my long distance/cross country running background)
Push ups - 25 non stop
Chin ups - 2
Sit ups - 40 in a minute.

... how 'bout this one, Mr. Elementary School Teacher:

Hi there,
I was wondering if it's possible to get some insight on the ACS simulation test.
I gotta call today and am booked for May 8-12th this year.
1. Is it hard? Do I need to practice on Microsoft Flight Simulator or it's better to go to a Flying School and practice in one of their Simulators.
2. I have cleared my medical, cycloplegic eye exam, interview, aptitute test, physical fitness test. Is my application reviewed at all or they're just doing prerequisities for now. Any info on that.
By the way I applied for ROTP ( second yr University student) AirForce Pilot.

Thanks.

Which is it -- an elementary school teacher or 2nd year University student?

... and then there is this one:

Gents
I am in a similar situation. But I have already completed 2 yrs of University here in Calgary and can not continue my education due to financial reasons. I eventually want to finish up on my education and get commissioned.
But for now I do need to join forces and get a NCM occupation as a Met Tech. Any info on what is a working style of a Met Tech. Would be possible for me to continue my part time education or it'd be hard like a combat arms trade.
Thanks
