Lol no reputable running resource would ever encourage sprinting flat out for anything over 400m. As short as 1.5 is, it's still a mile and a half (if that makes sense)!! It's almost ALL about pacing. Improving PT can be taught, common sense, drive to succeed, ability to lead cannot. And everyone who has been knows : boot camp is not the Navy. If you think it is you will be sadly disappointed, but thankfully most aren't.Thank you! While test taking is still a weakness of mine, in the last year of my college my tests started to improve and I definitely think I made excuses but there's no room for them anymore. I'm going to dig into resolving this somehow and figure out WHY I am not the best at them and then fix it. I certainly studied and enjoy studying so there must be somewhere else breaking down.
Oh, it went from 30 minutes to 18. I still have ways to go on the run and push ups, but I also learned its maybe not the best to attempt to sprint the entire mile and a half and I should just keep a steady jog.... The cons of training yourself off online research. You don't know what you don't know until you know you don't know it. I DID hit the minimum requirement for planks last night though, and I'm about 75% of the way to push ups. I am sure that by the time the March board comes around I'll be close enough that I would feel comfortable with my ability to meet the standards in time.
That does help to know. Overthinking is a con of mine... Thank god for the statement section.
That perfectly summarizes my college career. Thank you for your encouragement!
