Time to get fit!

I decided on Sunday in my boredom that I would go for a run. Now to fill you in, I used to be an extremely active person, play numerous sports multiple times per week. While I was in uni I used to run 8km/day. Now - well... I ride my bike, but that's about it. So on Sunday, I thought, "Ok, I'm going to have a go of the beep test, and see how fit I am!" I jumped on the net, downloaded a free copy, loaded it onto my iPod and off I went to the park.

But uhh, unfortunately it wasn't at all as rosy as I thought it would be. It's embarassing to admit that I scored 3.3 in the beep test!! This equates to "very poor" cardiovascular fitness on my part!!!! I can't believe it! I used to easily score 5.5+ in school!!

Anyway, so I have been going for runs around the park since (even with my sore muscles), and I repeated the beep test and scored 4.3!!! So hey, if I can improve by a whole section in 2 days, I will be fit in no time!! :)

I'll try and blog my scores on here (hopefully I won't go backwards!)
