I’m turning 40 in 5 days. I’m going to be out of town on that day and arriving home at 6 AM on Saturday. Some time late Saturday afternoon I’m going to execute the President’s Challenge test. Here it is:
|Challenge Item||Primary Fitness Component
|One-mile run/walk||heart/lung endurance|
|Curl-ups (or partial curl-ups)||abdominal strength/endurance|
|V-Sit Reach (or sit and reach)||lower back/hamstring flexibility|
|Shuttle Run||leg strength/endurance/power/agility|
|Pull-ups (or right angle push-ups)||upper body strength/endurance|
And here’s my vow/promise to myself.
I will take the test every year on or near my birthday.
What ever my score is this year, it won’t be lower for the rest of my life.
