BCT Day 17

Today was the first day so far in basic that went at a snail’s pace. It’s only 1500 and I’m ready to go to bed and sleep until tomorrow. The reason why it’s going so slow is that there’s nothing planned on today’s schedule.

Today was the first day so far in basic that went at a snail’s pace. It’s only 1500 and I’m ready to go to bed and sleep until tomorrow. The reason why it’s going so slow is that there’s nothing planned on today’s schedule.

We did PT in the morning. My arms are sore. All of us are sore. We’re reaching the point of muscle failure, where you can barely move your arms. Once the body reaches muscle failure, then it builds up. It’s an effective but painful(ouch) system.

We played around with our rifles a bit and got another haircut. Haircuts are expensive when you have to get one every two weeks and pay $4.75 for each. That’s like $25 throughout training.

That’s it for today. I don’t have anything to do right now. It’s not like you all write to me, so I’ll just sit here and be homesick and have no one care. You want me to be funny? Motivate me. Give me a reason to look forward to graduating.
