Every 4 weeks we are to take a fitness test to see our progress. Jane and I got together again today to try and beat our Week 1 results.

Here are my week 1 results:
1km Time Trial: completed in 5minutes 35seconds
Pushup Test: completed 44 full pushups on my toes
Abdominal Strength Test: reached stage 5
Wall Sit: completed 2minutes 05seconds
Flexibility Sit & Reach Test: +15cm beyond my toes

Here are my week 4 results:
1km Time Trial: completed in 5minutes 23seconds
Pushup Test: completed 50 full pushups on my toes
Abdominal Strength Test: reached stage 5
Wall Sit: completed 3minutes 05seconds
Flexibility Sit & Reach Test: +12cm beyond my toes

So – I have shaved 16 seconds off my run (and it was WINDY today, so I am hoping my next test is even better), I managed to crank out 6 more push ups (my focus for the next 4 weeks is to better my form – BUM DOWN, GET LOWER), I managed a whole MINUTE longer on the wall sit (and I think I have more in me for next time!)…unfortunately I lost 3cm on my flexibility but I think this is purely from having tight muscles from seeing my trainer this morning. Must stretch more!

Jane and I conquering the wall sit

Harry told me I had burnt 175 cals doing the fitness test, which is great on top of the 362 cals I burnt with my trainer this morning.

Total for today: 537 cals.

Jane and I got together today and completed the week 1 Fitness Test.

This required us to run a 1km route and time it, do a pushup test (how many you can complete in 1minute), an abdominal strength test (what level of sit ups we could get to), a wall sit, and a sit and reach flexibility test.

My results were:

1km Time Trial: completed in 5minutes 35seconds
Pushup Test: completed 44 full pushups on my toes
Abdominal Strength Test: reached stage 5
Wall Sit: completed 2minutes 05seconds
Flexibility Sit & Reach Test: +15cm beyond my toes

YAY! This puts me clearly in the advanced category (which I thought I would be anyway). For this 12wbt I will be following the Advanced Lean and Fit programme (with the hope to sign up for Round 2 and do the Advanced Lean & Strong programme).

Bring it on!
