I got home about an hour ago and took a long, very hot shower. I feel like some Margaritas and a steak tonight, I hope my wife does not want sushi!!!
I reached my goals in the pushups (56, a 15 pushup improvement and in only one minute vice the 2 the Navy gives you) and situps (70, a 17 situp improvement I used all two minutes for), both Good-High per Navy regulations. I was looking for high 13s in the 1.5 mile run but surprised myself by running a sub 13 for the first time in over 7 years (12:54 minutes, a Good-Medium). I'm thrilled, because this is the first PRT I actually trained for and it payed off big time. I now have a base for the future I can build on, and I start that on Monday for the next 17 weeks. I learned a lot that I will be carrying into my next cycle.
I rested this week, except for walking twice a day and total rest on Friday. I also ate what a wanted within reason.
Thanks to all of you for your support. Thanks to Yeoman 1st Class Becky Work, who paced me and talked me through it. And a big thanks to my wife, who put up with me and my occasional grouchiness knowing how important this was. She told me I'd be fine, and I kept that in mind.
And now, I have a bench meet to prepare for Aug 12!
