As part of getting into the new year, I thought it would be a good idea to do another Presidential Fitness test to see how I am measuring up. As with the New Year’s Day 5K, the results show that I have plenty of work to do.
My run time needs work, and so do my push-ups and flexibility. My plan is to repeat the test each month and see how I progress. (I also add pull-ups, though that is not part of the test. I did one, which is terrible.)
The next steps are a combination of running and strength training — mostly in the morning, which means earlier bedtimes. The other aspect to all of this is diet. You can’t out-train a bad diet, as someone once told me. So there will plenty of work on eating as well.
I’ll share my training and results, but if you have any good ideas for me, please share.
