Health is being able to have a good mental state, a good physical state and a good social state. Having a good mental state means to have control over your feelings and wouldn’t be depressed all the time. Social well being means to talk to friends family and communicating with people. A physical well being is when you are good at exercises and being active.
There are some main parts of fitness for example cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, muscular strength and body composition. Cardiovascular endurance is having to exercise for a long amount of time. Having a good cardiovascular endurance is when exercising for a very long time and when having a bad cardiovascular endurance means that exercising for a very long time can be hard because you would get tired faster. Flexibility is being able to make your body into different shape. Body composition is about if your body is fit and how much muscle and fat is in your body. Having muscular strength is to have strong muscle to be able to lift heavy things.
It’s good to take fitness test because after you get the results you would know what you could improve on and what your strengths are. An easy way to test your cardiovascular endurance is by doing the cooper test. A way to check for the muscular endurance and the muscular strength is to check how many push up or sit ups you can do in a one minute. We also did a flexibility test where we sat down with our legs straight out in front of us and we reach try to reach to our toes using our arms. When we were doing these test we were in groups and one of us would use a stopwatch and count how many sit ups or push ups we did. When we did the flexibility test we had a box and there was a scale on top and there was a hole where we can put our feet in. With the scales on top of the box we would reach as far as we can and our partner would see where we reached to. I think if I wanted to compare my results with someone else I could look at their blog to see what they posted our ask them about it and talk about how we can improve on our bad areas.
Looking at the results I got from the tests I did I think that I need to do more work on my fitness. I realize that my cardiovascular endurance is not very good so I think that is something I need to work on. Another thing I think that I need to work on is my flexibility. Even though I think that my flexibility is that bad I still think that I could work on it to get better and have a fit life. Overall I think that the important thing I need to focus on is my cardiovascular endurance because I can not really run for a very long time because I get tired so I think I can improve on my cardiovascular endurance so that I can run for a longer amount of time.
My three goals:
improving on my cardiovascular endurance
To do that:
To improve on my cardiovascular endurance I think that I should sometimes go running outside of school to get better and more used to it so that I can run longer times.
2. Improving on my flexibility
To do that:
To improve on my flexibility I think that I should stretch more in the morning or in the afternoon. I think that it will help because then my muscles would be more used to it.
3. Muscular strength (to be able to do more push ups)
To do that:
I think to improve on my muscular strength I could maybe do some push ups a day to get used to it. I think that this would help me improve on this area.
I think that I did pretty well in this unit and I learned a lot about my health and what areas I should improve on. After this unit I have started thinking more about my fitness and how I can improve on it. If I do a fitness test again some other time I hope I would have improved more on these areas and would be able to improve on other things too.
In P.E we did a scientific measure of our cardiovascular endurance. We went to the park and we went into partners and one of us ran around the small park for 12 minutes and the other kept count of how many laps the other person did. My Partner was Rhiannu and I went first of running the park while she counted how many laps I did. When the time was finished I ended up with 13 and a half laps around the park. Then I counted how much Rhiannu did around the park. The park was around 200m so we times our laps and the miles together.
I think that cardiovascular endurance is being ative for a long time.
Cardiovascular endurance or aerobic capacity is the ability of the heart and lungs to deliver oxygen to working muscles. It is the ability to exercise for prolonged periods of time without undue fatigue.
It is very important for sports such as cross country running, swimming, football and basketball.
My Cardio Vascular Endurance is strong
I run very often and do not get tired.
I am very motivated to do CV fitness during the week at least 4 times.
I feel very strong in my chosen sports from a CV perspective.
I feel great after I run
I think I would score very highly on a CV endurance test.
My CV endurance is good. I run regularly outside of school.
I am usually motivated to run and feel good afterwards.
When it starts to hurt, I dig in deep and find that extra stamina to keep going.
My CV endurance could be better. I can run for a small distance without getting tired but then want to stop. Maybe my motivation drops or my heart hurts and I get out of breath.
I don’t really do much for my CV endurance fitness outside of school.
My CV endurance is not very good. I get out of breath easily. My heart hurts, my head hurts and I get dizzy. My body struggles to cope with the demands placed upon me.
I feel very bad after doing CV endurance exercise.
MY OWN Level
I think that my level for cardiovascular endurance is a 3. I think this because I don’t really run outside of school and I can’t really run for a very long time. Sometimes I can run for a long time but I get tired and would want to stop for a while. I sometimes want to stop and take a rest because I get tired easily sometimes. When I run I have to stop and walk for a bit.
In P.E we are talking about health. We looked at different pictures of people who are healthy and people who are unhealthy. We had one question we had to answer:
What does it mean to be healthy?
We came up with many different ways of being heathy. I think that being healthy means to be outside and to exercise. It also means eating healthy things for example fruits, salad etc.. Being healthy doesn’t only mean to exercise but it also means to socialise with friends and not to be stressed and to sleep enough. It also means to have a balanced life between being inside and outside. A definition of health is a ‘state of complete mental, physical and social being as well’. Physical well being means to have your body systems working well. Mental well being means to cope with stress. For example not to get angry easily and to relax once in a while instead of not controlling your emotion. Social well being is having shelter clothing basic human needs. Social well being also means to have people support you when you are stressed and feeling welcomed with them (feeling valued). Being healthy doesn’t mean to only be physically healthy it also means mentally and socially.
What does it mean to be fit?
What I think means to be fit is to be physically active and having a good balanced mind. Sometimes it also means to be balanced with meals. The ability to meet the demands of the environment. There are different components of fitness. The components of fitness for health-related fitness are:
cardiovascular endurance means to be active for a long time
Muscular strength means to having strong muscles to use for lifting things up.
Muscular endurance means that you can move your muscle for a long time.
Flexibility means to be able to do things like the splits
Boby composition means if your body is fit and how much fat or muscle in your body.
For the past few weeks we have been learning gymnastics. After we learned all the things we needed to learn we went into groups and started planning a performance. My group (Charlotte, Alina and Aruna) we first talked about the things we could do in gymnastics and we started putting that moves we were doing in a list so that we could practice what we were going to do. After we practiced and practiced we finally thought it was time that we practice it with music. So we chose music that we liked and we chose: “You make me feel…” By Cobra Starship ft. Sabi.
In the performance we did forward rolls, cartwheel and round-off. We also did different things on the vault (Vault box/Jumping box). We practiced a lot and we got better every time. At first we wasn’t sure about the music that we chose but then we decided that it was fine because our moves kind of flowed with the music that we chose.
We also sometimes changed the sequence to our moves but then in the end I think that our movement did flow together. When I re-watched the video I thought it wasn’t bad. What I thought was the most challenging move that I did is when I jumped on top of the vault and did a roll down (the last jump I did from the vault). I thought it was kind of hard because I always forget to tuck my legs in when I do it. So I think that was maybe the most challenging. However I think in the video I tucked in my legs a little but not as much as I needed to. I think I was able to tuck in a little was because before I jumped on top of the vault I reminded myself of what to do but I think when I jumped I forgot what I was supposed to do.
What I thought was the most enjoyable was the jump on the vault and then a roll (The last vault I did in the video). Even though it was the most challenging I still enjoyed learning it and showing it. i enjoyed it because at first I didn’t think that I could do it when we were learning but when I tried it it was not as hard as I thought. I think that our practice sessions were very productive because in that time we could still practice and help each other out on the part where we had to improve on. I think that in the end we improved a lot than when we started because we got our feedback from out teammates and sometimes the teacher. Another thing I thought I needed to improve on was when I did the balance with Alina I think I should’ve have made my back straiter. Also I think would’ve made it better was if Aruna was not sick on the performance day and that she was there to help us. However I thought overall it was good and that my group did a very good job.
This is the table of my cross country times and feeling. In this cross country we ran Negishi park 2 laps. We had lots of practice before the real day.
This is the line graph of the cross country time. It got mixed up so now the times on the side are different but I think the line is right if you get confused on what time I got just look at the table.
You're Rose Tyler!
You are spunky, determined, and as religiously devoted to your Doctor as you are to chips. (He's the only one who doesn't know how sweet you are on him, too.) You never stay put when you're told to stay put, but just when everyone expects you to get roasted by the monster of the week, you turn right around and figure out the mystery. You're sharp as a tack, but also sensitive, knowing when the Doctor needs someone to back him up or when he just needs a hand to hold. He seems to think he can get rid of you... you're quick to show him he's wrong!
You're Donna Noble!
Oi! Wotch it, Martian boy! The Doctor thinks he can spout all kinds of ridiculous technobabble and 'Last Time Lord Angst' at you just because he's from outer space, huh? Well, you're not having any of it! You've got a heart of gold and a will of iron, and you're a rather boggling combination of a romantic idealist and a staunch realist. But you never let logical paradoxes get to you; you prefer to shoehorn the universe into a little box of your own perception. More often than not, it fits... probably because the universe is too intimidated to argue!
You're most like Jade West! You're very dark and gothic, and so is your make-up. You love your boyfriend, and you're not afraid to show public displays of affection. You love horror films, and you're not exactly a happy person!
You love being different from everybody else because just going with the flow is boring. You are instinctive and do whatever you think is best, though it may not always be the right choice. You are a peacekeeper but at the same time you love being spontaneous.
