Incidentally - is it a lack of ability to do lots of press-ups, or a dificulty doing them after a 1500m run?
My first fitness assessment was probably the first time I'd run that distance in as long as I can remember and had no idea of pacing (and got a time of 7:17 - I think), but was fine at press-ups which I was ok at anyway.
Second fitness assesment two months later and I got my run down to 6minutes dead and was pretty pleased, but it left me shattered and so my press-ups straight after dropped a fair bit.
So even though it's a "test" and is supposed to be done at max effort all the way through, adjusting your pacing in the run might improve your later numbers?? - depending on what your issue with pressups is of course.
