FIT IN 400 Challenge

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

I started up a group challenge on dailymile.com here: www.dailymile.com/challe

Basically, the challenge is to get fit in 2012 by fitting in 400 miles of running, walking, or run/walk. That's less than 8 miles per week, which I believe anyone is capable of if they stay consistent. And consistency is what gives us the results we want. I am decently consistent with working out, but I definitely need some support to help me stay consistent in my running.

Being in this 12 Days of Christmas Challenge on Facebook has kept me from getting lazy in my workouts as all the other craziness of the end of the semester and the holidays takes over much of my time. I usually slack majorly this time of year! I have been more consistent with working out on this challenge than I have any other time! It's because I know people are 'watching.' Whether anyone is really paying any attention to what I do or don't do isn't the point. But someone *might* be, and that's enough to get me off my lazy rump at night when I'd rather veg out in front of my computer screen.

So if you want some motivation and the added positive pressure of others being in the challenge with you, pulling for you and pushing you to reach your goal, then join the challenge and start posting your mileage January 1, 2012!

    I joined the challenge! I really like that website. My plan for 2012 was to take a year off from running though..but it will be fun to see how close to 400 I can get! I did about 250 this year. I love that you can connect it to Nike+!

    is it your little toe? i have broken those before and it only took a couple of weeks to heal enough to walk okay and not much longer to run, so you'd definitely be good to go! join up!

    Sounds like a great challenge. I would definitely be interested, if I hadn't just broken my toe:-( Walking is a little tough right now, so I'm mostly riding the bike. Not sure how long it is going to take to heal up. I would definitely be interested.
