YES!!! I passed.

I did the Physical Agility test today for the police department. I have been stressed, tried putting it out of my head, hoped I would forget, hoped a magic wand would swing then I just resigned myself to the fact that if I failed I would try again in the Spring.
I needed to run 1.5 minutes in 17:44 plus 2 of the things below.
19 sit-up
Bench press 50% of my weight
11 push ups
I did a trial run a while back and could do the run but not the sit-ups. I will admit I haven't practiced. I kept meaning to. Now I am thinking you can run but you will fail in a sit up??
Well hot fucking damn I passed!!!!
I got 20 sit ups done too.
I ran it is 16:56.
Pressed the weight .
Boom!! 4 days off.
Now back to work Karol and I are excited and proud and you know what I am starting to realize I believe in myself.
Since when have I said - Oh I have the run?? I ran before years ago but I never owned it.
Well I own it now. It's mine.
The best part about it is that it doesn't have to be the same for you. We can run the same road and be in different places. It's ok.
Awesome.
