I am really, really sore this morning. We had a long week...court martial trial memo was due, the criminal law instruction course wound down and PT seemed extra hard (at least for me). Thursday, my platoon did a ton of pushups and situps (just over 200 each!). So when I woke up at 5am for our 4 mile run yesterday, I was looking forward to getting it over with and getting into the weekend for some sleep! This is where the getting "smoked" part comes in...getting "smoked" basically means being exercised until exhaustion as a form of "corrective action" (aka punishment...but more to teach a lesson). So yesterday, 1 person (out of 112) was late to the first formation before PT. So, to make a point about how important it is to be on time, the entire company was "smoked" after class. (Company = entire class; Platoon = about 50% of class; so we have 2 platoons that make up 1 company). So we did lots of pushups, some situps and then more pushups. It is what it is. It could have been a lot worse. But I ache all over today. And, of course, the girls want to go outside and play as the weather is getting better!
