After PT in the morning and then a run, the balance of the day was mostly ﬁlled by pulling duty around the compound. Gear and materials were also worked on, to both familiarize the students with everything they would need to use for training as well as to get some of the stuff in good repair. Pretraining was a time to learn how the compound was laid out, run, and where to ﬁnd everything. Students were given a chance to learn the ropes of BUD/S training as it would apply to them.
