For the month of April I am focusing on Physical Fitness. (I couldn't come up with a good alliteration, so this month gets a "faux" alliteration instead.
I have an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) coming up, so it only make sense that I'd start to really hit it hard and get into a groove with working out. I'll be honest...Since I've been working on so many other things, my fitness routine has really suffered. That's an understatement. It has been non-existant.
When I was in basic, I started from nothing. I could not pass the APFT. When I graduated from AIT, I wasn't only improved, I was one of the best. I was running a 14:30 Two mile and maxing/near maxing every event. Every. Time.
It was a pretty big freaking deal and now I'm back to the struggle. It's amazing how quickly you can just fall out of that routine and start to suck. For this month (and hopefully for every month after this one) I'll be doing a few things to kick my butt into shape and turn some acceptable scores at my PT test this month.
