Chicks up for a Challenge - Lazyman Marathon--November
11-03-2013, 07:16 PM
I like these Marathons, so I decided to start the November Challenge. I haven't seen one up yet. I'm going to simplify as I really don't have time to add everyone's totals and to color code. Therfore, please edit your original thred date/miles walked so that everyone is responsible for their own totals. See you at the finish line!:woohoo:
A Lazyman Marathon is a full marathon (26.2 miles/42.2 km) but instead of taking a few hours you have a whole month to complete it. You can walk, run, skip, or jump the distance but you must use you feet. Biking doesn't count however. You may break up the total distance anyway you want: walk a mile every day for 26 of the days, run a couple miles every few days, cram the last week, however you want to do it. And feel free to go over if you find this to be easier than expected. I'll keep track of everyone's distances here, but if you put your total in your posts as you go, that's super helpful.

Hi all, I'm going to try for a marathon just with my running, recently returned to running, so have a plan on jogging 30 minutes 3 times a week working up to 35 minutes, so hopefully if I did the math right should be able to use this challenge as a way to keep me on track.

Hey all! I'm back! hopefully for longer this time. I'm shooting for 1 because school is killing my free time this semester, but if I keep managing to wake up early maybe I can go for 2.
Did 1.58 miles this morning.

I actually started and Endomondo challenge with family members with this marathon and it has been well received! Perhaps I can get my family moving a bit this month! I didn't walk today. I'm back on board tomorrow and hope to finish 4 miles total. I guess we will see if I can get up early enough for two miles in the morning in addition to the 2 miles I normally do in the evening.
11-05-2013, 08:02 PM
Did not walk this morning, but got 2 miles in this evening.
11-06-2013, 01:26 AM
SeaUrchin, you have me motivated! I am all in for this challenge..
11-06-2013, 02:00 PM
.84 this morning. I was gonna go for alot longer than I did, but it was too darn cold! I may go for more tonight depending on the temp.
11-06-2013, 08:28 PM
Good evening team and welcome TammyinWV! I walked 2 miles this evening. Still trying to get the morning walk in, just can't get out of bed early enough. I am just not an early morning person!
11-07-2013, 07:27 PM
Out again this evening to complete 2 miles. I'm off!
11-07-2013, 08:52 PM
well, I took off and walked about a quarter of a mile to realize that I lost the necklace my husband gave me about 4 years ago. I have been looking for it and haven't been able to find it. So needless to say, I did not make the 2 miles this evening.
11-09-2013, 03:39 PM
walked a mile today before it started raining. Hopeing to get out again this evening for another 2 miles.
11-09-2013, 06:42 PM

welcome donit4me! I'll add you to the list of participants. Keep your running totals and I will update the list at the end of the month.
11-10-2013, 01:31 PM
I'm really looking forward to this challenge.
Walked 2 miles on the treadmill this morning.

11-11-2013, 04:11 PM
Walked 2 miles this morning. I really want to get motivated to walk twice a day for a total of 4 miles. Let's see if this is the week!

Walked 2 miles this evening. I really need to get my behind out of bed to walk in the morning as well. I read that 2 miles is equivalent to 4000 steps and catagorized as 'very inactive' (less than 2500 steps). If I double my daily walking to 4 miles a day (8000 steps) then I am considered 'active'. 10,000 steps plus (5 miles+) is considered 'very active'. Lord, why do I read articles on the internet...
11-13-2013, 08:55 PM
2 more miles on the elliptical tonight.
11-16-2013, 07:39 PM
after three days, hit the pavement for a two mile walk.
11-17-2013, 08:52 AM
Did .5 mile yesterday. The back of my foot is so sore. I got a blister last weekend, andit still has not healed. :(
11-17-2013, 11:31 AM
oh gees donit4me, be careful with the blister! walked 2 miles this morning.
11-19-2013, 09:04 PM
moving along. Another 2 miles today for a total of 20 miles. I think I need a new pair of tennis shoes. My feet are starting to ache.
11-20-2013, 09:44 PM
another 2 miles today total-7 miles.
11-28-2013, 08:57 PM
November has been a slow month. However, I intend on finishing the marathon. I walked two miles today after having a week off.
12-01-2013, 09:07 AM
I thought I would finish the marathon the last couple of days and couldn't get out due to the rain. I walked a total of 22 miles this month.
