Instead of PT today, I went shooting at an indoor range with my father and younger brother (also now a father, congratulations!). I felt fairly "in the groove," and left my targets with my brother to impress people with. :)

I'm focusing on tempo runs until the end of the quarter. My goal time per lap is 02:10; every time I make my goal time, I increase my number of timed laps by one. After my timed laps, I alternate jogging and running laps without timing, until I finish two miles.
I'm already getting 30 sit-ups per day; I have to focus on getting 30 push-ups. I'm using very strict form and touching my chest to the floor with each rep, and it's actually more difficult than it sounds. I'm doing three maximum sets on each push-up day until I can do 30 consecutive in my first set.

My kettlebell training continues; although there is a study that demonstrates that kettlebell training should significantly benefit my APFT score, I haven't found that to be the case. I haven't discontinued the training, but I'm making it a distant third in priority.

My slightly higher priority, although still far below my APFT training, is hapkido. My training partner is getting deployed, and my friend in Kansas City probably is, too. I need to start being serious about getting to the Sunday night classes my friend offers here in town.
