Fitness Test Friday: Moving Forward!

It's Fitness Test Friday!  Three weeks ago, I decided to complete the fitness test program on my treadmill every Friday with the goal to improve just a little each week. I wasn't expecting to see tremendous changes each week, but a little bit of improvement would mean success to me.  One workout at a time... slow and steady wins the race!

Last night as I was putting the kids to bed I glanced towards my treadmill and saw something that made me laugh out loud.  My daughter had been playing behind the couch and decided to give one of her WWE wrestling superstars a workout.  She laid out a foam runway on my treadmill that lead down to the wrestling cage!

I decided to start off a little faster than last weeks fitness test and started off with a speed of 5.5 and slowly increase my speed every two minutes.  I kept my eye on the goal that I had set for myself... 

Fitness Test Week 1:
I managed to go 0.93 miles in the allotted 12 minutes

Fitness Test Week 2:
 I jogged 1.04 miles in the allotted 12 minutes

Fitness Test Week 3: 
 I made it 1.15 miles in the allotted 12 minutes 

I'm going to complete the fitness test every Friday with the goal of making it just a little bit farther each time. Next week I'm pushing for 1.5 miles!

Who or what motivates you?

You are doing so great! I'm so lazy on my elliptical. I go a mile in about 25 minutes, but figure its better than not moving at all.

Awesome! If I only had a treadmill, I would be on it now to keep moving!

Keep it up, from what I have heard it takes about 3 weeks to make something a habit but it can all be lost in an instant. Your almost to the 5K mark, sign up for a race in the coming months, it will keep you motivated!

Slow and steady wins the race. You're doing great!

What motivates me? Tight clothes. When my clothes start to feel's time to step it up!
