Found out this morning (5/20) that I could go to MEPS tomorrow. Nothing like waking up at 4am.
Pullups: 12 (20)
Situps: 79 (100)
3 miles: 28:40 (18:00)
MEPS. Wow. I had to fast prior to going. My last meal was at 7:30pm. I woke up at 4:00am and I didn't get a chance to eat until 1:00pm. I'll let that sink in for a minute...
So at 1:00pm I was finally able to inhale a probar (fruits, seeds, rolled oats) and an Ostrim beef and ostrich stick. All in all about 500 calories. To put that in to perspective, if I'm up for 9 hours, I'm already sitting at around 1500+ calories.
After MEPS I drove to OCS to hand them my paperwork. SSgt there says that 3 of the other pospects and a 2nd Lieutenant were about to go practice the PFT. He asked if I wanted to join them. Not one to back down from much of anything I said alright. Considering it was my first PFT with them I fell I did quite well. 12 pullups, 12 REAL pullups; none of that cheating, palms facing you, close grip stuff. One guy was kicking forward about 3 feet or so to gain momentum, that stuff won't fly during the actual test. Since I was only able to do sets of 3-5 unassisted in early March, I'd say that I've improved. 79 situps, yeah, check my logs, when's the last time you saw me do Abs work...yeah. So that'll definitely get some attention now. And the run, 3 miles, around a lake. This was so hard. I didn't think I was going to finish. It was good that the 2nd Lieutenant waited at the turn, get a little motivation for the run back. And he was there again for the last 100-200 yard run across the bridge. I was amazed that I was a little less than 5 minutes behind the other 3 men.
As my weight continues to go down and as my cardio continues to increase, I will get 18 minutes. OCS says that 23:30 is the minimum for invitation to the school, they're gonna see 18 minutes out of an endomorph.
I went home, ate, showered, and went to sleep at about 6pm.

14 hours later, I finally woke up from my coma. 14 hours! It felt GREAT to sleep for so long. I kinda forced myself into a mini-hibernation after only getting about 1,000 calories on Thursday. X-Dream + Arginine + Ornithine = Totally awesome sleep/dreams/recovery. I was not sore from running, my abs weren't sore (surprising,) and my lats weren't sore (until my workout today that is.)
Diet was much better today.
I know I've used this picture before. I don't care.
