The boys and I rode our bikes – with much fit throwing by my youngest – to the middle school and took the Presidential Fitness Challenge as promised.
Here’s the results for all of us:
|Event||Ron (40)||Elijah (13)||Micah (12)|
|Curl Ups (sit ups)||23||12||9|
|Shuttle Run||11 sec (approx)||14.1 sec||15.34 sec|
|Push ups||18||8 (knee)||10 (knee)|
|One Mile Run||15 min 49 secs||17 min 21 secs||20 min 5 secs|
One of the boys was timing my shuttle run and messed up stopping so that is approximate.
Micah says he could have done full push-ups and well have him do them again at a later date. They are done 1 every 3 seconds which is a little weird.
I was pretty exhausted by the time we got to the run/walk. Shouldn’t have ridden out bikes the half mile or so to the test. And I was still recovering from being ill. Still I know I’m out of shape.
