1km time trial: 5 mins 29 secs
push ups in one minute: 7 on my toes and 32 on my knees
abdominal strength: level 2
wall sit: 50 seconds
sit and reach: +15cm
I was so excited to get my 1km time trial completed in less than 5 minutes 30 seconds. I just scrape through to the 12wbt advanced program. My push ups and sit & reach test also place me in the advanced category. I bombed out in the wall sit and abdominal strength wasn't much better. I was so sure I could get a respectable time for the wall sit. Around the 45 second mark my legs started shaking and at 50 seconds I collapsed in a heap.
There are a few other pre-season tasks to complete. I need to buy a hat before I can consider myself properly 'geared up'. And still a bit of work to do on my kitchen clean out. My biggest challenge here will be convincing my partner that reduced fat dairy is the best choice. I haven't yet diarised all my workouts but I think early morning will be the best time for me. My schedule is changing shortly as I wrap up uni exams and begin full time work later this month. During January I will take some time off, but I am still keen to get my exercises done in the morning before it gets too hot outside. And I don't quite know what February will look like yet!
