Today I went for a mile run on the track. It was between 0800 and 0900 and already 90 degrees outside. I accomplished my fastest mile run since using MapMyRun, I think. I ran it in 8 minutes and 15 seconds. Pretty impressive considering we ate out all of last week and it wasn’t always the healthiest (we did do a lot of walking while at the parks, though).
I ran last Saturday and Monday morning before we left for San Diego. Saturday was on the track (8:57) and Monday was through the neighborhood (9:10). My legs felt heavy and the hills definitely didn’t help my time that day. I’m looking forward to increasing my time and getting it in the 7 minute range.
The day we left for San Diego, my recruiter called me letting me know MEPS needed another document to which I responded that I would get it to him when I returned in a week since he forgot I told him I’d be gone. Today I went to the patient administration division office to get the xray interpretation document, scanned it into a PDF and emailed to him. So hopefully now I’m in the clear to go to MEPS for the physical. Fingers crossed. Before our vacation, I was down to 144 lbs. I’m hoping I’ll be back down to that, at least, before going. I’m back up to my body’s comfortable 149… but it’s time to break that comfort level. I’m going to try running more regularly from now on.
