Check Ride

I have my first Blackhawk check ride tomorrow. A check ride is a test of your flying ability and oral knowledge. Obviously we don't need to know thaaaat much because we've been flying for <20 hours but it's still pretty stressful and I've been studying all day.

The sun came out and taunted me but I skipped running and only did 60 pushups with each meal. Tomorrow morning I'm doing 120 for breakfast no matter what and 120 for lunch no matter what. That way I'll have 240 in the bag if my travel day is too tiring and I don't get anything done at night. On Saturday I hope to get 3-5 miles in and then 9 on Sunday, one week before the half marathon. Also, I hope I can get some sweet pullup action on Saturday, hopefully I can find a park with pullup bars. I might not have any new blog entries until Monday but, shit, then again maybe I will.

Pushups: Today-180 YTD-8530
Pullups: Today-0 YTD-115
Running: Today-0mi YTD-112.75mi

I was tossing and turning last night trying to sleep from feeling so sore. But today I felt better than I expected.

Went to the gym at lunch but only did cardio. 3 miles on the elliptical in a scorching 35 minutes (WTF). Then finished with 7 minutes on the stair climber.
