I seem to be hooked on joining challenges. There is just something about a challenge that makes it easier to stick to your to do list. Those of you who know me in person (and not just through this blog) know that I walk a great deal. I recently lost a great deal of weight and I'm obsessed with keeping it off. Walking is the kind of exercise I enjoy - and it's hard to stick to it during the winter months when you live in frosty Colorado, but I'm trying.
The 400 Miles in 2011 Fitness Challenge seems just like the thing I need to keep me motivated. On my to do list for 2011 is to hike up Pikes Peak in August. So a walking challenge should be just the thing to help with that training.
Here are all the details.
The challenge will run from January 1st thru December 31st
It's never to late to join.
The purpose is to reach the equivalent of 400 miles (at least) during the year, not a set number of miles a day.
Every Friday morning starting 1/7 I'll put up a new post for everyone to add the link to their progress post. If you'd rather post an update every two weeks, that's fine too, but please visit a few participants every week and give them support.
mile for mile-
walking/jogging/running outside or inside on a treadmill
biking inside or inside on a recumbent, spin or stationary bike
WATP Mile DVD's: 1mile walk, 2 mile walk etc.
15 min. equals 1 mile-
Minutes and miles can roll over:
If you only walk for 3/4 mile, or exercise for 10 minutes, you can add those minutes/minutes to the next day.
