To celebrate the reopening of communications with Miss Navy again, I decided to see how I stack up agains the Navy's fitness requirements. She passed her Initial Fitness Assessment (pre-boot camp) today. :)

I did 28 pushups in 2 minutes. By itself, that's barely even Probationary. (37 to pass Basic Training, 33 to pass afterwards.. and those are the BARE minimums).
I did 37 situps in 2 minutes. By itself, that's also just barely Probationary.(47 to bass Basic, 40 to pass afterwards).
My current c25k level puts me running about 1 and a third miles in 18 minutes... and the Navy requires that you run a mile and a HALF in at LEAST 15:00 to even be Probationary. The times don't even list anything slower than 15 mnutes. (14:08 to pass basic, 14:45 afterwards)
So. Looks like I would fail miserably. :) Well, the running part that is. And I'm working on that. I'm almost to Satisfactory when it comes to pushups and situps. :) I think I'll retest myself every Saturday or something like that. That's the day that we would usually go on dates. When she gets back from boot camp I want her to like what she sees, assuming that she still wants to start over again at that point.
And even if she doesn't, I'm going to be in the best shape I've ever been in in my life. I won't die before I'm 60. Not from not taking care of myself.
