    Hi! I understand we may or may not have to go to morning PT during our CVW with our plebe...is that mandatory?

    My father got the whole family sick with some virus at the beginning of this week and I've only just started recovering from it. I'm a bit concerned about not being able to keep up.

    Thank you!

    I went to a CVW back in October and we were not required to go to PT. In fact, they sent us back one morning. Hope this helps!

    My DS went last May and there was no PT. I don't think there is much of that during the academic year. Maybe intramural sports but certainly not an organized run. With that said, the company he was staying with organized a water polo game which he joined in on.

    My plebe mentioned they have PT Friday morning, at which point I think I'll still be a little out of it; it's good to know I don't have to go, might not turn out so well. But, thank you so much!

    The decision is up to you, presuming they allow you to PT. However, I can't imagine that you would be that out of shape based on being sick for a few days. In other words, your fitness level isn't going to drastically change from what it was this past weekend (before you got sick). To me, if you are "well" enough to go to a CVW, don't you think you are well enough to work out? They aren't going to make you work out until you drop -- if you need to stop, you can -- you aren't expected to lead the workout! And even if you can't keep up for some reason, at least you are out there -- it shows SOME effort versus NONE. It also will tell you what kind of shape you need to be in.

    In my opinion, if you are opting out of the workout because of your fitness, that is the wrong response. If you are opting out because of fear your sickness might worsen, that is another story (however, it didn't seem like this was your concern).

    In the case of all the candidates that have been with my company, you will end up working out with us. That varies by company though.

    Everything you do or don't do that weekend is completely optional. I went to PT with my midshipman and loved it! But I looked really funny in my mid's sweats (she's a foot shorter than I am!) They were honestly surprised that I decided to join them and that earned me a lot of respect, not that I really deserved it.
