As I have become somewhat frustrated with my running as of late, I watched 4 Minutes, a movie about Roger Bannister, yesterday and that has helped me get motivated again… then reading a Cool Running newsletter I came across an article about Navy SEAL Physical Screening Test (PST).
Is it possible?? Hear are the standards:

Enlisted Physical Screening Test (PST) Description
