Fitness Standards And Goals

Eason's dojo recently handed out some fitness charts with standards for different age groups. The standards were divided into push-ups, sit-ups, and running.

I was pleased to find out that I'm considered to be in excellent shape for a 17 year old. That means doing over 56 push-ups (I can do at least 80), 49 sit-ups in a minute (I can do about 53), and running a half mile in 4 minutes.

The running was the hardest, but I did manage it in the course of a 30 run on the treadmill.

I do have some running goals I've set for myself:
• Running a half mile in 4 minutes outside.
• In June I'm running a 5k and I want to beat 30 minutes.
• By the end of the summer I want to be comfortable running for an hour.

  1. Hey, lay some of those running tests on me! I'm curious to see where I come in if they cover longer distances.
