The One About the Baseline Start

Sunday, September 28, 2008

Runners just do it–they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first.

Well, I just did a baseline test for my sit-ups, push-ups and 1 mile run.  I’m soo out of shape.  The Navy standards go from probationary to satisfactory to good to excellent to outstanding with low, medium and high within each category (ie good low, good medium, good high).  You HAVE to have satisfactory low to even pass, but I’m shooting for good low to good high for each of mine.

I can’t do a proper push-up.  Not at all.  I need to do 19-30 sit-ups to be in the good range for a female my age.

I didn’t get a good baseline for my sit-ups because B pissed me off by making comments about my red face so that I stopped and didn’t feel like doing them in front of him anymore.  I need 54-75 sit-ups for the good range.

I did a one mile in 13 minutes, 45 seconds (I haven’t done a mile run for 12 years).  On that pace, I’m set to do a 17 minute, 15 second 1.5 mile run.  I need a 14 minute, 53 second to a 14 minute flat 1.5 mile run to be in the good range.

I have a loooooooooooot of work to do.
