As I mentioned a few posts back, I was going to re-do the beep test today. The highest I had scored so far was 4.5 which is absolutely abismal!! I've been training quite hard to get 6.5. To be honest, I think the highest I've ever scored (even at my fittest as a teenager) was in the 5's, so I've been VERY worried that I would never get there.
But, today -- I DID IT! 6.5 on the dot. I could not run any further and my lungs are still burning, but I got there!!! It was a really weird feeling while I was running knowing that I was beating my old score and not feeling exausted yet!! So it looks like all this training is paying off and I am really starting to see results!! At the very least it is certainly good motivation to keep going with my training.
