I believe a SITREP is in order:
I have recently conducted an APFT. The pushup and sit-up judge was an active duty Marine.
I have had a faster run time. My PR is 12:32, but, that doesn't matter. The PU's and SU's seem to be at a plateau that I am currently working on breaking through.
My PT routine consists of waking at 0545. Four or five days a week contain a 3-6 mile run @0630hrs. I then proceed to either go to work, read, or take care of household errands. At 1400hrs, I hit the gym for an intense, 1:15-2:00 session of weight training, circuit training, or wrestling at my old wrestling club. I am range in weight from 175-181, but feel as though I need to start bringing it down to the 175 range, as it would probably speed up my run times. (I am 5'10", by the way.)
In other news, I have started to read "The Battle of Mogadishu: Firsthand Accounts from the Men of Task Force Ranger", edited by Ranger Matt Eversmann and Ranger Dan Schilling. I have just finished Ranger Eversmann's account and, wow, I cannot put into words my reaction. All I know is, what I am trying to do isn't about me, and will never be about me. My sweat and grimaces in the gym and on the track are gone, it's business time. My "pain" and "fatigue" don't matter to me anymore, I really have no understanding as to what those words really mean.
Excited to progress further...
