Hey! I am going to BCT this summer with the class of 2016. Everyone says physical preparation is key and I believe them. But with such a crazy last two months I'm still nervous that I'm not doing enough. I am on the cross country and track and field teams and I am just about to finish with track. After the season ends I was going to try running up the mountain near my house for good 3-6 mile uphill workouts a couple days a week. I am hoping this will strengthen my lungs for the altitude (currently at about 500 ft above sea level). I am a girl so the thing I am most worried about it upper body strength... I can do 50 pushups in a row and 4 pullups... is this about average? I know the maximum is 8 pullups for girls, but that seems a bit difficult to reach in less than two months. I know that nothing I do will fully prepare me for the rigors of BCT but I would like to come in at least being able to stick with the pack. What are you guys doing to prepare? any advice?
