I did an Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) today and realized that I'm in better muscular endurance fitness than what I initially had thought. I did 116 pushups, 97 situps and ran the 2-mile in 10:32 for a total score of 381. The 116 pushups and 97 situps were about 3-5 repititions short of my usual average in an APFT. That's actually not bad at all considering I have not done much muscular endurance training in the past 2-3 months because of the focus on marathon training.
On the other hand, the 10:32 for 2-mile was also sort of an unexpected result. Before the start of the run my grader/scorekeep asked me what time I expect to finish the 2-mile. I told her between 11:00 - 11:30. I had no intentions of running at full effort (and I didn't) because I'm currently tapering for Berlin. From start to finish I ran comfortably hard and fairly relaxed. I completed the first loop in 5:20 (course was 2 loops of 1-Mile) feeling very good. In the 2nd and last loop I might have picked up the pace at some point because I finished 8 seconds faster in 5:12.
Mon: 6M @ 7:18 pace
Tues: AM - 4M including APFT 2M in 10:32; PM - 6M easy with no timing
