I was hoping I did better on the lung function test but I think I did not do as well because I was still getting over a cold from the week before. Unfortunately, the negative aspects of my assessment would be the aerobic fitness and my blood pressure. I would say that my VO2 Max, which is 25.1 is poor due to the fact that I did not do participate in any sort of intense workouts like running or exercises that require physical endurance for a long period of time.
