navyislife asked: Damn, what kind of a pace did you have for that run?

Well i was having trouble even running a normal pace towards the end. My calfs were not responding. But it was probably 9-10 minutes per mile.

To be tough, you have to train tough. This was definitely not a comfortable run.

austinnlagayy asked: Can I still go into the seals if I'm joining the marines? I've heard a lot of different things about it.

No, you need to be in the navy. What you can do is join the marines, serve and then get an inter branch transfer to the navy with orders to BUD/S but it’s difficult. You can always go MARSOC in the marines

I have these same fins but my flutter kick isn’t near was big as his is. When you start out, start out with a small flutter kick then work your way up. In this video, he isnt doing a natural combat side stroke. When i use fins, I do the combat side stroke while doing that constant flutter. I hope this video really helps you out.

nothingbutgains asked: I was wondering if you have any tips for swimming with fins and a mask I'm ussually a good swimmer but the fins and mask make swimming extremely difficult for me mostly because I'm used to breathing out of my nose when I swim and also do you have to use fins and a mask when you take the pst?

No when you take your initial PST you have no gear. Not even goggles when you take it. Once you get a contract, they let you wear it. Idk why they do that. But right now I am using masks and fins and i was in the same boat you were when i first started except i loved the mask. I naturally breathe out my mouth when i swim so if i swim with a mask to much, I wont be used to the sensation in my nose of swimming without one which is very uncomfortable. As for the fins, if you are using the super bulky rocket fins that the Navy uses, you can’t do the huge scissor kick technique. You have to do a small constant flutter kick otherwise you will fatigue your legs a ton because those fins are bulky as shit. ill try to find a good video for swimming with fins and post it. Should only take a few minutes.

navyislife asked: I'm 17 and also trying to get into NSW like you guys but I'm not in the delayed entry program and was wondering if it would still be possible for me to get a mentor? And by the way your blog is awesome and has given me so much more info that I use.

Yea you should still be able to be put in contact with a mentor before you sign any papers through the Navy. That’s how my mentor works but I am unsure of how all the others do it. And thanks a ton man. We really put quiet a bit of time into this so these compliments mean the world.
