I've had it a couple of days back. For those of you who don't know, it's a endurance test. You need to run 20 meters across a hall and back on some music. On each side of the hall are 2 lines, which you have to cross. A beep goes, and you need to run back and so on. After 2 times bach and forth you get half a 'stair' (trap in Dutch), which is basicly and indication of how far you are.

I got stair 10.5

, which was one of the highest in my form. I was amazed I got that far. In the end I was running with only 1 friend of mine, all the other guys out.

he managed 13 though.

It's not exactly the same I think, you run shorter distances, 'cause our test only gets us up to 20 stairs max, then it just stops. But the shuttle run is also a 'progressive test' as they like to called it. After every stair, the beep comes a little faster, so you need to run faster. At around stair 8, you're running, nearly sprinting, across the hall.

It's called the beep test here and it's just 1 beep everytime you run to the other side.

I remember getting 80 something but that was 2 years ago.

I'm in a bilingual stream, and my teacher calls it the shuttle run test.
And don't translate "trap" literally

It's step in english.
Also, I used to get 11-12ish, but due to smoking and a lack of sports I only got to step 10 this year. (In year five of middelbare school

)
EDIT: One step = one minute of running, not going back and forth twice.

we don't do one minute of running, at my school it's back and forth= half a step.
At the end, there's a beep every 10 seconds. You've done a different test I think.

we call it beep test here .
and basically, you just run across the gym and beat the beep .

the sound goes "seven one, seven two, seven three" etc etc.
and it gradually increases in each set . so lets say in 6 you run 7 times, in 7 you run 8 times .

EDIT: farthest i've ever gone was Nine 11 xD.

I was expecting this to be related to penis (yes, vulpes, I'm serious this time - the title looks like it.)

I am sorely dissapointed.

They call these a beep test in Canada.... one beep counts as one interval... you work your way up.

I got 9.8 last year, but probably would've gotten higher if I didn't want to take a dump halfway through. Grr...

I absolutely HATE those tests, you run 4 times 20 m forwards en 4 times 20 m back. Then you have "trap" 1. If you dothat again then you have "trap" 2. I had trap 10. That's 1,6 km I think.
