Friday Fitness Fun!

Today's installment of Friday Fitness Fun is all about endurance.

Endurance is defined as *the power to withstand hardship or stress.* So true!

Since running is one of the most enduring activities out there, today's test is RUNNING.

The Test


Begin with a easy, but brisk warm up walk. Increase your pace and run as fast and far as you can for 5 minutes. This can be done on a treadmill, which might actually be easier for measuring distance and pace.

Wishful: 10 minute mile pace or slower (1/2 mile or less)

Sturdy: 8-10 minute mile pace (more than 1/2 mile to 2/3 mile)

Strong: faster than an 8 mile pace ( more than 2/3 mile)

How did you do? Let me know, I would love to hear from you!
