This is the season every one in the Navy “looks forward too.” This is our physical readiness season. Is this my favorite time of the year? To be honest, eh not really. Sometimes I am more prepared for this than other times. With all the recent schoolwork, stress and working that I have been doing, I neglected the gym. I’m not where I want to be but I can pass and hold my own. I find out soon how well I will do on this test. I have already passed the first part: The weigh in. I know I can do better and I keep striving to be better. It takes time and persistence.
If you get curious and want to see if you are up to the Navy standards have a look for yourselves! It’s a fun way to see what you would have to improve. I keep pushing myself until I feel stronger and happier with where I will eventually be.
