And I got into Oxford???? Not smart.
In the greater spectrum of terrible classes, this one is admittedly not so atrocious. Take last Thursday, for example. Instead of merely sitting in a class talking about how we could become personally healthy, we actually got up and did it--thanks to Billy Blanks and the wonder that is TaeBo. Now, you have not lived until you have a seen a senior philosophy major who never hits the gym in favor of hitting the books do TaeBo. I have lived a life fulfilled, my friends, for I have witnessed one Mark Roosien, who is a lover of wisdom if ever there was one, kicking and jabbing his way to fitness.
Today, we followed suit with a plethora of tests designed to see how personally healthy each of us is: we tested our body fat percentage, our cardio skills, our muscle endurance, our flexibility, and more. Basically, it told me what I already know: I'm skinny and out of shape, although I have decent abs. What's curious is the fact that my body fat percentage indicates that I am not "Overfat", nor am I "Ideal for Health". Oh ho, I am "Ideal for Performance".
What kind of performance I could perform without adequate readings on muscle strength, flexibility, and cardio is beyond me. Checkers, maybe?
Thank you, EXS 1000, for introducing me to that most noble family of sports: board games.
I owe it all to you.
