GAFPB Pistol Qualification

After a good workout at PT this morning and my usual getting-ready time after PT, I headed out to the range for pistol qualification for the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge.  We had to shoot at 3 targets with a 9mm pistol, one shot in each target and then the last two shots in any two targets.  The first time I tried, I got two shots in each of two targets and missed the third target, so that’s not even qualified.  The second time I went out, I got 5 shots out of 5 in the targets and that’s what I needed to qualify for the gold badge!!  Then after lunch (and stopping by the school to give Robert his midday meds), we had a class about the Consideration of Others and that was pretty much it for the day.  I did do a little bit of work in my admin office though before heading to the track at the gym for a little bit with K.  We did a 400 m. warmup and then did 100 m sprints to practice for the sprint part of the GAFPB.  We have to run the 100 in 17 seconds or less.  All three times we tried today, we ran in 21 seconds.   Things we have going for us Monday – we won’t have done PT in the morning. We won’t have been at the pistol range. We won’t have been at work. We’ll be coming off a high from the weekend (RAGNAR!!!!). We’ll have "race day" adrenaline. And we’ll have people cheering for us. And hopefully it won’t be windy. We were running directly into the wind for 2 of the 3 tries (tried it the other way just to see).  So hopefully on Monday when we do this for real we’ll be able to knock those 4 seconds off.  After we were done at the track, we headed home.   I picked Robert up on my way home and then after a shower, we went to McDonald’s for dinner before coming home to relax for the evening – and pack for tomorrow.  Time for bed now. . .

Today’s high:  62
Current:  46
