Hello, I am Lauren Kerr and I am here to talk about physical activities and what I have enjoyed the past few years. I have been involved with babysitting, working on the family farm and Vacation Bible school camps. I have enjoyed these activities for years now and still continue to enjoy them today. I have benefited from these activities from being involved with the community and being able to create stronger relationships with the community and also feeling more responsible and independent with all of these activities.
Two of my scores that I have chosen for my fitness testing is the Plank and the Vertical Jump. I have chosen these two because my plank had increased by 12.4 seconds as my vertical jump stayed the same at 26 centimeters. I had experienced one increase and my vertical jump stayed the same. I think the change in data occurred for my plank because I had set a goal to reach for 40 seconds and my biceps have also strengthened from the last time I had done the plank.
The most difficult aspect of this learning experience was that you were only allowed to play as if you were right handed, for me, I am left handed and I found this very hard forcing myself to not do what naturally felt right to me. I also found it a lot harder to play on the actual field hockey field than it was to play in the gymnasium.
If I were to participate in the Listowel Lightning Track and Field Team I would choose the jumping events to participate in, specifically long jump and triple jump. I chose these two events because I enjoyed doing the events and also thought they challenged me to get even better in the events. How I would work to Improve in these events is by marking where I feel the most comfortable jumping so that I don't jump too early or too late.
