The past few months of chocolates at work, big meals and lack of exercise have taken their toll alright. Now tipping the scales at 84kg and waste size 34 I need to do something about it.
Doing a big trip will alter my physique, possibly even make me leaner and fitter (?). But common sense says that it’s best to start off being in good shape. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again.
As a rough guide I checked out the British Army fitness levels for entry. They say….
50 sit ups in 2 minutes.
44 press ups in 2 minutes.
Run 2.4k in 14 minutes.
I just tried (after a full breakfast) and I managed….
44 sit ups.
36 press ups.
I know I can do the run.
So for a 43yr old that’s not to shabby. My gosh is to get army fit and better before I leave.
