I should have taken the PFT in the morning...before lunch. I don't know if I'll ever be able to enjoy a homemade, hot turkey and cheese sub again. :(

Chin-ups: 17
Sit-ups: 45
Push-ups: 50
Run: 1.6 miles
Score: 260

I improved on my chin-ups and push-ups, but I did one fewer sit-up and a little more than a tenth of a mile less on my run. Why? I paced myself too much on the SU. I felt too strong when the timer went off. I could've/should've gone harder, but I didn't. The run was simply a survival / avoid-vomiting test. I ate too much at lunch. My mistake.

Goals for September PFT:
Chins: 18
SU: 50
PU: 50
Run: 1.8 miles
Score: 280

Note: Not having good place to do body rows we did them using side of door facing so not as intensive as what Joel's picture shows...I'll have to figure something out to give us a better place to do them.

Troy: 120 BRs, 42Crnchs, 39 KPUs, .8 miles in about 13 min.

DZ: 150 BRs, 40 Crnchs, 40KPUs, 7 miles in 55:34

Sol: 50 BRs, 20 Crnchs, 59 KPUs (Sol did his own counting on the PUs but assured me many times he had 59! :-) )
