Pack Testing for Fire Familiarization training

To be a wildland firefighter type 2 crew you must passed the Arduous Pack Test. Meaning you have to carry 45lbs for 3 miles in less than 45 minutes. Not only you have to passed the mandatory training but also be physically fit.
I'm going to be in Fire Familiarization training next month. I will experience being a wildland Firefighter and get familiarize with the fire . I have most of the mandatory training done. But I still need to go through physical exam as well as pack testing. I've been training and I need to do better. I got my boots and I've started breaking them in by walking 3 miles every day. I'm so excited!
