Yay Meghan! That's awesome.
So, this mightnot seem like a huge deal, but I am excited about it. I scored over 80 on my fitness test today. I have never scored over an 80. I have failed a bunch of them, so I was always happy just to pass (passing is 75).
run 1.5 mile: 14:32 (my goal was under 15, I did 15:25 on my last test)
sit-ups: 29 (bummer I did 33 last time)
waist measurement: 33 (was 34 on my score card- although two of the 3 were 33.5- someone messed up inputting it)
My goal for next time, six months from now, is a 90. When you score 90 or better you only have to test once a year.
To get a 90 I need to reach the following goals-
run: 13 mins or less
sit-ups: 44 or more
push-ups: 15 or more
waist: 32.5 or less
I really think this is totally doable. I need a lot of work on the push-ups, but I think I can get there.
Yay Meghan! That's awesome.

Congrats, and good luck - the 90 sounds totally within reach! Push-ups are tricky for a lot of women - it's taken me a lot of work just to get to the point where I can do 3 sets of 5 with good form, but it feels awesome.

That's awesome! I have a really hard time with push up myself but I think you can do it next time for sure!

Congrats!! I think your goals are totally doable. Have you looked into the 100 pushups training plan? I know a lot of people swear by it for building up to pushups.... one hundred push ups
I'm thinking of starting it next week when I get back on my schedule...

Hip hip hooray!!!!!
Great job Meg!
Most excellent! I have no doubt if you keep doing what you're doing, a 90 is easily within your grasp in 6 months!
I'm up your way in a couple of weeks...the aerospace medicine conference in Anchorage (though I'm not sure that's quite where you are?)...
Anchorage is about 6.5 hours from here. We should be making a trip down there this summer. I wanna go fishing too, so probably to Valdez
That is a huge deal!! You have not only achieved visible and measurable changes in your body but also in your strength and fitness. Wonderful work!
I love your goal and look forward to seeing your thread in six months celebrating reaching it
