05:36 pm - natural high
Trying to concentrate in office, I decided to try physical coersion. Curious about how accurate my feeling of decent fitness is, I decided to measure it. Found the Air Force ROTC fitness test, tried it (except the running... I'm pretty sure I can do 1.5 miles of track in under 9 minutes), passed the maxes easily. Especially the crunches -- go go pilates. Interesting.

Last week was pretty rough. Friday night I tried this drinking thing that everyone talks about, but saturated on my interest in drinking alcohol before I became very buzzed. (I won't enumerate, but it was a lot). Saturday night, after a day of working (9:30am call from seth), I tried fortifying myself through exercise, which was far more satisfying and buzz-inducing (the steam room->cold shower after is great). Granted, I also felt it a great deal more the next morning. Fortunately, everything is better now.

1.5 miles in 9 minutes is damn fast. At least, it would be for me. The rest strikes me as pretty easy.

To pass the test you have to sustain 9.75 miles per hour for 9:36. That's pushing what I do on a normal workout, but within the range of what I can do if properly motivated.

I like that even you old men have to do it in that time. :) The push-ups were close for me, in that I had to plot out my pacing and didn't just keep going after 62.

Err, 9.375. I'm not sure why I mistyped that.

Ok, so I went and put down a mile and a half in 10:10. It felt fast. I don't think I can take another 34 seconds off that anytime soon. Of course it would help if I could run more than once a week (damn shins!),
