3 Week update
I said here that I was starting my Military Fitness training on the 7th of January. It all started with a below average 1.5 mile run which as a part of a fitness test. I had to do a 2 minute press up and sit-up test too. All of my results were in the ‘below average’ category. My next fitness test is in 3 weeks and there’s no way in hell that I’ll let myself be in that category again.
I’m happy with the results though, it gives me a benchmark and a goal to work towards in the coming weeks. The training so far has been light. I’ve been eased into low rep sets of Planks, bridges, press ups, pull ups, squats, lunges and more. I’ll be honest, it’s not easy. This time last year I would be flying through this schedule but it’s harder this time round and that’s fine. I’ve gained weight and I’m trying to get back to a high level.
When the training is hard I just remind myself that it will pay off in the near future when I can feel like myself when I look in the mirror or get dressed in the morning. Nothing worth having comes easy though!
So I’ll keep on running (I’ve ran 48 miles this month) and stick to my training plan whilst eating right, hoping to see the scale say 13 stone something in the near future. Running with my crew will help me do that too! Every Wednesday.
Have a great day.
