Whatever it is...All of these times are motivating me to drop my run time as much as possible, starting now.
Okay, so I went out and did a PFT. (With what I could remember when I was in the DEP for the USMC...Which was four years ago.)

I did a lot worse then I thought I was going to do.

Pull ups - 21
Crunches - 62 (within two minutes0
1.5 mile - 14:58...

So I know what I should be working on...Core strength and cardio work outs. Big time.

Do you guys sprint the whole run? I was going about twice as fast as my usual jogging speed, and those were my results. I'm glad I did this though. Definitely put me in my spot and shows that I really need to step my game up. I haven't run at that speed in a long time.

I met up with my dinner at the end of the run. That was a fun little surprise.
