I did the President’s Challenge Adult Fitness test again this week. My overall score has improved 5 percentile points since last time. I’m pleased, since I haven’t been focused on this. It’s been almost a year since the last time I took the test and I really thought I might have gone backward.
* 1 mile walk in 16:29, heart rate 138, V02 max 28.3; 20%ile – My time was a little slower than the last time I did the walk test, but my heart rate was lower also.
* Half Sit-ups in one minute: 23; 30%ile – same as last time.
* Push-ups: 14; 45%ile – I’m very pleased with this one, because last time I could only do 10, which was 30%ile. I think the improvement is because I learned how to properly do a push-up (thanks Jillian Michaels).
* Sit-and-Reach: 14; 25%ile – same as last time
* 30%ile, up from 25.
I am definitely becoming a fitter chick.
