I reach 133 km / 83 miles... there is a few more days left in January to make it to my goal of 200!

Like I said before - this is good to take the first month to assess... I know I did not do as much as I would normally do, I was not feeling that good...

I am off to Mexico - see you back in a week!

Lots of snowy weather came our way. It was challenging to get the pups out. Getting out when I can and will try to hit my goal next month.

Hi GREBJACK!

I like the idea of January as a baseline! I know form tracking my distance for the last 2 years what I can expect to cover in an year... but it is always good to re-assess! I am with you I find it harder to keep moving during the winter - I cover much more distance in the warmer temperature!

My distance as of today is 81 km... To reach my 200km goal for the month I need to get on my feet and move!

Like your options: Jumping rope and stairs are very challenging too and a great way to GO!

I need to just use this month to get a baseline. I don't run outside in the icy months, and I can't stand the dreadmill. emoticon But while it's easy for my body to get back in shape for a short race each summer, if I really want to extend my distances, I have to figure out how to maintain my base in the winter. So this January is for jumping rope and climbing stairs and getting a feel for how much is too easy, how much is too hard, and how much is good training. So my goal is to emoticon or emoticon daily and keep my records about how it feels during and whether I get sore later so I know what to shoot for in February.

Thanks for starting this thread.

From 1 to 7 Jan: I covered 60 km (running, cycling and going for walks).

My goal for Jan is to cover a minimum of 200km (average of 50 km per week...)...

I think this is a SMART goal for me!

What is your January Distance goal?
