    Doing the rotto swim next year, made it last year ahead of 99% of everyone. That swim is 90% fitness and 10% technique/speed so i'd say im pretty high on the scale.

      Not as fit as I used to be, not anywhere near as fit as I'd like to be. But working on it (slowly).
      No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation to detail.

          Unfit. It doesn't take anything much to distract me from going to the gym or walking the pup

            I regularly lift 100kg rubbish bins but I can't jog 100m without being very short of breath. Working on it though.

              Fitter than your average Nanna these days. I can walk 8km in an hour. Bloody osteoarthritis stops me from running. I can swim 1km without stopping and 20km on the pushbike is easy. OK it's shameless boasting but I've worked friggin hard to get this fit and I'm proud of it.

                I'd say thats pretty damn good. I think you'd be fitter than the vast majority of Australians. Especially the swim 1km without stopping bit.


                I'd consider myself reasonably fit. Need to trim some excess bear belly, but I still ride the deadly regularly and swim a bit and run a couple time a week. These days my muscle strength is somewhat akin to that of a weak 5yr old, but my cardio is OK.

                    Not as fitt as I should be, but after being a non-athlete as a kid, ran a marathon last year in 3 hr 36min, as a 48 year old.

                    When I've competed in half marathons, I finish in the top third. Did 10 kms in 44 min last year. The hardest thing about the marathon caper, is getting the time to practice....in training, a short run is 16 kms, most between 20 & 30 kms.

                          After a long struggle against injury, pitiful strength and stamina I've finally reached the point where I'm running 5km three days a week.

                          I expect that, in another two or three weeks, it will stop being such torture.

                          At which point I'll think of something else to add (more speed and/or more distance) to make it hurt again

                            Fit enough but never good enough.

                              I row(ergo) for an hour 3-6 times per week, I'm pushing 15 k's per session at the moment.
                              Despite that, I really suck at push ups, so I started the hundred push up thing a few weeks ago.. it's really making a difference.
