So I may delve into some of this a bit later, but today was sort of an important day for my job. We’ve known this PT test was coming for months, but I figured I could just knock it out without doing any really focused training for it other than getting an idea of where I stood for it. A few of my test runs had me figuring I’d hit my 1 mi run in the 7:30 range.
PT Test: TSP Special Operations Response Team
1 mi run (<8 min to pass)
40 pushups in 2 minutes
40 sit-ups in 2 minutes
Despite the lack of any really focused strength-endurance work on pushups and sit-ups and only a little speed work, today went extremely well. I resisted the urge to get out this morning for a little Zone 2 jaunt in the woods and decided I should spend the first half of the day resting and not eating anything crazy, then spend the rest of the day celebrating depending on how the test went.
