Here's your chance! July's here so let's set our goals.

If you are new to this challenge, the goal is to walk/run 50 miles (or more) for the month. Everyone is welcome!

Last month I completed just over 115 miles, so I will set my goal at 125 for July. Since it is still June for me (PST)......I will post my miles in the morning!

I want to try to do this. I am not very fast, but maybe I can do this and get consistantly walking every week. Hope this complements my Christmas Challenge, if I can get it going!

Congrats to everyone from the June challenge, it was rockin'!

For July, I will aim for a minimum of 50 miles, since I want to continue mixing it up with swimming and biking.

Didn't quite make my 100 miles for June, so I'm going for 75 during July. When I hit it, I'll give myself another mini goal ! Got 4/75 done today.

Ok, all. Here I go! I got 2 goals done, made my commitment here and went out to get a new pedometer that actually works and doesn't reset to zero when you least expect it.

I will only put down today what I can honestly account for. But it sure makes me keep moving, 'cuz it keeps me aware that I am sitting too long. Even that is an big accomplishment for me.

So for today I am counting 1.8/50 miles done.

Check in tomorrow. Have a great day everyone.

Kathy

I'm aiming for 75 this month -- I did about 60 last month. I'm also starting up aerobics again, so I'm aiming for 800 minutes of aerobics too. I shaved off 6 minutes of my 3 mile walk last month! I plan on getting faster, but if I stay at the same pace, I'll be at about 2000 minutes of exercise for the month.

3/75
0/800
