I practically acheived my "I'll be very happy with" APFT goal. Did 121 pushups, 101 situps, and ran 11:04 for the 2-miler, a 385 APFT score. The run was very cold and slippery from black ice on the roads. Came through the mile in a pedestrian 5:39, finished off with a 5:25, and then continued on for a 25 minute cooldown before rushing to get changed for my morning meeting. The 2-mile run actually felt like a short tempo workout. Four hours later during lunch time, I went for an easy 8-mile run. I should have ran in the evening instead of during lunch because the legs and body just wasn't feeling it. Felt like I was running on empty and the HR was higher than normal for an easy run. 13.5 miles total for the day.
