Ripping the seat of my pants

Working long hours this month leaves me little time for fitness training. It also makes me wonder how much training or fitness is needed for the average middle-age man.

What's the best way to test whether I have a minimum level of fitness?

It’s really a simple test in my opinion. As a middle-age man, I should be able to run up a flight of stairs without being out of breath at the top. I should also be able to bend over and reach down to tie my shoestrings without throwing out my back or ripping the seat of my pants.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
