Today I read a SP article which outlined a fitness test for walking. The test was to walk one mile, flat surface, as fast as you could. A chart showed the ratings, based on age.
I was curious how I would measure up, so off I went to our school track with my stopwatch. Of course, being the competitor that I am, I wanted to be in the "Excellent Range", but I was just 15 seconds too slow (or else 2 years too young!) I finished at 14:57, in the "Good" Range. (To rate Excellent I would've needed to do it in less than 14:42.)However, considering there was a time in my life, not so very long ago, that I couldn't walk half a block without getting winded, I'll take "Good"!!!
