I agree the issue is with COC. I meant the standards for the APFT are a joke. I'm not a fan of the test itself either. I believe it should have sprints rather than a two mile run. Pull ups instead of sit ups, etc.

I see what you did there.
+1 on this, I did nothing longer than a mile between a couple triathlons that were 3 months apart, and in that time, just from CrossFit, my 5K time dropped by 15min.
