Taking the test does NOT obligate you to anyone or anything.
"The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental." - John Steinbeck

Run. You can't study for the ASVAB but you can improve those run times stud. Start the following workout routine for your run...
On a regulation 400m track run one lap as fast as you can then walk 100m, then run two laps as fast as you can, then walk 100m. repeat this cycle 4 or 5 times. Do it every other day and in between on the other days run 2 miles for time or run at a slow steady pace for at least 30 minutes.
Monday- 3 miles for time
Tuesday- track workout
Wednesday- 30-45 min run
Thursday- track workout
Friday- 30-45 min run
Do not cheat yourself. You should be puking during this track workout, if not, then you are being a puss and need to grab your sack and RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!

Run in the rain, run in the snow... get used to it now. They won't cancel PT because of the weather Chyl. Don't make excuses, just get er done if this is something you really want.
Its not just a phrase, its the way of life for a warrior.

Ive been running ont he treadmill, because right now we can leave the house, I can get a ticket and it is just general unsafe for me to go out.
Im not trying to make excuses, If anyone lives in the Dallas area. They will know what im talking about. We have Massive Flooding.
Here is a picture taken by the News only three blocks away from my house, if the flood waters rise anymore we will have to leave our home. We already have water up to our pourch.

Tread mill seems a proper fall back for yeh with the conditions you posted.
But there's other work to do too. You've listed the hi speed, low drag options in your choice picks.
You want all over endurance. You want toughness, you want mean that you can dig into when you're too tired to fart and too whipped to think.
Calistenics, lots of em. Bends and thrusts, mountain climbers, getup getdowns, sit ups, crunches, leg lifts, push ups, crunches, leg lifts, pushups, side straddle hops, push ups, leg lifts, high steps (hands behind head, bring left knee up to meet your right elbow coming down and across, then right knee to meet left elbow, repeat quickly, even faster, like you're running in place till you want to puke) push ups, leg lifts, sit ups, push ups...did I mention leg lifts and push ups?
Also, sit down and grab your nutsack and self check. Do you have it in you to be miserable, go without sufficient sleep and food for days on end and not only keep focused and doing your job, but not whine like a ruptured c**t? How do you feel about still being awake at 3 AM and looking at yet another 10 mile hump before you get even the possibility of an hour or so sleep, for the 3rd day in a row?
Life is hard even without making the choice to live the hard life. This aint about ego or what looked cool on TV. You'll be in a world where the kind of tired you'll feel dont even exist in the civilian world. And, while you're dealing with all that soul breaking fatigue, pain and misery, you'll need to be sharp, focused and "on time, on target" all the time, every time.
It's not a bad thing at all to want to go hard, but you dang well better understand that if you dont make the cut, you still serve out your contract.
Equivocation is the first step along the road to capitulation.

I understand, Ive fallen out of my physical Conditioning, my prevouse 3 mile time was under 18 min, and i have over 20 pull ups and 100 sit ups...but like many other people In America I became Lazy, I have to push myself and i know that, and Im working on it, When im not working, i work out, when im not learning I run.
I have some work to go I know that, But I know if I push myself I can do it.
