...but I passed it, and I don't have to run for another 6 months!! Woohoo!!!
So despite being a semi-OK cyclist, I suck at running and have not much upper body strength. So when the time comes for my semi-annual Army Physical Fitness Test, I start having anxiety attacks.
But today was different. I guess all this racing has gotten me into pretty good shape, because without any running-specific training I was able to shave over a minute off my 2-mile run time! I'm usually in the "barely passing, in danger of failing" category when I run, so to cross the line with plenty of time to spare was a good, good feeling today.
I think I might do some more running in the coming year just because it's easier to go for a run and it burns more calories in less time, but I still hate it.
Oh well, I'm good for another 6 months, and deep down I'm glad I have to do this because it's very easy to become a total slug when you're working the crazy resident hours...
