Keep going. Keep going. 30, 39. Reporter: No sweat. Five minutes of rest and next goal is 11 push-ups. And, 11. That's a minimum. Should I do one hand. Another short break. On your mark, get set, go. Time for the 300-meter sprint. You'll shatter this. Nice. 56 seconds. Oh. Got 30 seconds to spree. Reporter: The 1 1/ 1/2-mile, 15:56 is the time to beat. Finish strong. Nice. What's my time?
