The Beep Test

Yesterday was the first day where I participated in a beep test. I'm sure you know what a beep test is? If not let me tell you. This is a test where you get to see where you are at in running and how fit you are. The test involves running 20 meters back and fourth. Did you know that for a rugby player their results have to be between level 14-15 to get into a rugby team.

According to my results on the beep test, I wasn't really please with myself. I had got 3.3.
This test is all about speed, intensity, commitment and much more. I think that I didn't give it my hardest because when I was up to level 3.3 and the next beep went and I had to run, I actually stopped. I think that when we have our second beep test which will be at the end of this term, I will give it my hardest and try not to stop in the middle of the way.

  1. I think you're right Mubasshira- lots of people gave up way too easily. We need to learn to push ourselves both mentally and physically!
    What do you think you'll do between now and the end of term to improve your fitness?

  2. Hi Mrs Nua,

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. You are right, a lot of people gave up too easily. To improve my fitness, I will have to eat properly and do a lot of exercise. What do you think is important for kids to stay fit?
