    Aclimate yourself too. Whatever the "Swab Summer" is called for your academy, it WILL happen during the summer. Running in the heat, without dorms (barracks) with A/C will really get to you, train in the heat. Run on hot blacktop in Tennessee (that's what I did, I like to think it made a difference). Let your body get used to the heat.

    However, heat is not as big an issue here at USAFA. You will be dominated by the altitude! So, come in extra special running shape so you won't be decimated enough to fall out of PT.
