The Stars by Ben V

Hello Year 6.
It has been a little while since I have set myself a personal challenge, thank you to everyone who has attempted the previous ones (and put me to shame).
Annoyingly I have broken my toe, in an incident that had absolutely nothing to do with sport or activity
The toe is healing (although still really bruised) so I am back to setting myself a sporting challenge.
This one will have to span over a couple of weeks, as I will be unable to do it everyday.
How quick can I run 5KM?
I want to see how quick I can run 5KM. This will be a challenge, after recovering from injury, but I am up for the challenge.
First recorded run- 7th April: 5.2KM in a time of 23:24 (23 minutes and 24 seconds)
Next recorded run- 2nd May: I didn't quite manage 5KM. My toe was too sore so I had to stop at 3.4k. Frustrating, but I will rest and go again on next scheduled run.
Third recorded run- 10th May: My daughter came with me so we ran 3.5KM this morning in a time of 19mins and 8secs which isn't bad at all.
Fourth recorded run- 13th May: I ran 5KM. Today I completed the distance in 22mins and 4secs. I am happy with that and will keep trying to bring this time down. My aim is to get as close to 20 minutes as possible.
For any running enthusiasts...it is over to you. How quick can you run 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5KM?
Week beginning 6th April 2020
Core crusher challenge:
Cristiano Ronaldo has invited fans to attempt the core crusher challenge. He completed 142 reps in just 45 secs. New Manchester United signing Bruno Fernandes tried and got 117. So.... Mr Utteridge thought he would accept Ronaldo's challenge and give it a go. See how he got on below:
Tuesday 7th April: 57 reps in 45 secs (not quite as good as Ronaldo)
Wednesday 8th April: 74 reps in 45 secs
Thursday 9th April: 81 reps in 45 secs
Friday 10th April: REST day
Week beginning 30th March 2020
Step up challenge:
I have started the step up challenge, using the bottom stair in my hallway.
Rules: left foot up, right foot up, left foot down, right foot up- this counts as one full rep.
How many can you do in 60 seconds?
Monday 30th March: I completed 58 full step ups in 60 seconds
Tuesday 31st March: I completed 63 full step ups in 60 seconds (+5)
Wednesday 1st April: I completed 69 full step ups in 60 seconds (+6)
I want to add: this sounds easy, but it is rather exhausting!!
Thursday 2nd April: I completed 62 full step ups in 60 seconds ()
Friday 3rd April: I completed 69 full step ups in 60 seconds.
Week beginning 23rd March 2020
Day 2 of Mr Utteridge's personal challenge: I would have to say there has been little improvement but I won't give up. Roll on day 3.
Day 3 of Mr Utteridge's personal challenge: Today there have been signs of improvement . I have adapted my technique and (through many attempts) the hoop is spinning for longer.
Day 4 of Mr Utteridge's personal challenge: I tried hard to improve today and then I received the video (below) from Mrs Smith . However, it had me questioning...is it me or is it the hoop?
Day 5 of Mr Utteridge's personal challenge: the challenge continues and a little bit of progress has been made. Shakira once said that your hips don't lie...I am beginning to agree with her.
Day 6 and 7 of Mr Utteridge's personal challenge: The hoop is spinning....but only for a short time. I am sourcing a weighted hoop and will see...once and for all...if it is me or if it is the hoop...to be continued.
