BLC25-Week One Fitness Test
Sunday, May 04, 2014
Mother Nature cancelled my second row this morning--too windy to go out, whitecaps on the bay, boats bouncing wildly in the waves...At least our 7:30 row went and had a beautiful time! So I figured while I was all geared up and ready to go, I may as well tackle the WEC Fitness Test and scratch it off my list...
I decided to do the one mile run first (much to the dismay of my Boxer mix running partner, Tucker, who howled the whole time because he had to stay home--next time, buddy!) Running into the wind, my time was 11:45. Not my best, but not my worst. I'll take it.
Then I wore myself out with pushups and crunches--it is not an easy task doing either for a minute straight! Owie!
And I had to find a twelve inch step...which turned out to be a little cooler in the garage for the three minute step--good heavens!! Took my heart rate--112--and called it done!
The good news is that I am tentatively excited and hopeful today! I'm back down to my last lowest weight before I plateaued and have a good feeling I'm back on the road to losing!! Sticking to the letter of my food plan...I can do this!!
