Thumbs up March Exercise Challenge

Spring into spring with your exercise goals!

Everyone is welcome to post fitness and exercise goals for March 2011 in this thread and then track them through the month. Log your workouts, your minutes, the times you take the steps instead of the elevators, anything that gets you moving more whether the goal is big or small.

State your goal in a post. I will add your goal to the goal list. When you reach your goal, it gets turned Red.

We have a sister thread March Weight Loss Thread for weight loss goals. Join in one thread or both! We'd love to have you with us.

Thanks for setting up this challenge again, gardenerjoy!

My fitness goals for the month of March are:
1. Buy running equipment (good running shoes, a decent sports bra, and an arm strap or something similar for my iphone)
2. Get through the first two weeks of the C25K program
3. Exercise 22/31 days (gym or C25K outside)

Good luck to everyone this month!

Hi my goals for this month are to do SOMETHING every single day, and to do C25K every other day without fail. I'd also like to log my strength training, and hope to see an improvement in my abilities by the end of the month.

I'm allowing myself three nothing days in the month, but only want to use them if I'm in too much pain to exercise, not just if I'm being lazy!

1 15 mins walking (to supermarket and back) 60min Davina workout DVD TOTAL = 75mins
(Davina progress tracker - warm up 100% completed - legs and bums - finally mastered lunges! All squats completed, marched through 3rd fat burning interval - upper body -completed all, minus weights for now! Didn't do first fat burning interval as it followed straight on from last on upper body and I was knackered! (didn't do chair part as I had no chair in the room, substituted it with wall press ups! abs-did all of the fat burning intervals, and tried my best to do the exercises, but found this section the toughest, couldn't keep up with all the reps, need more work on abs!

All in all, happy that I'm making progress from the last time I did this a couple of weeks ago, when I couldn't complete any of the intervals the whole way through, cardio defo on the up

2 Horrible bad foot meant no c25k tonight. Hoping it'll be better enough to do it tomorrow. Did some arm strength training for about 20mins

3 NOTHING achieved. Major hangover and super dooper sore legs from Tuesday's workout saw me slack already

4 C25k week three day two, plus an extra six min run in the end. And half an hour strength training using my resistance band and focusing on my arms.

5 C25K week4 day1, 20 min walk too and from supermarket, Davina 30 min cardio box. Completed everything bar the 'bouncing' in the boxing intervals (trying to save my knees). Impressed at how much easier the cardio intervals have got now. Next thing to work on is my rhythm! Best exercise day of this journey to date, and it's a Saturday!

6 Swam 8 lengths at the pool, walked around a lot (how I miss my car!)

7 C25K Week 4 Day 2

8 Biggest loser 30 day kick start DVD, was so unmotivated, hot and tired, did 40 mins of the 60. Taking this one of my repertoire it's just so dull, I need music to workout too!

9 C25k Week 4 Day 3 (added an extra three mins onto the final run to make it up to 8 mins)

10 Self made 50 min strength plan with cardio intervals. Mainly focused on arm exercises using resistance band, also did some exercise ball stuff working my abs and a little bit of thigh work. Last ten mins I jogged (non stop) a mile away from a few weeks ago when I could barely jog one minute intervals

11 C25K Week 5 Day 1

12 Nothing

13 Swam 12 lengths

Alright so I made my gaol in february lets see if I can maintain this momentum in March!!

I have switched back to my resistance/speed programs for miles, last night I did 1.5miles in 65 minutes & burned 1089cals if I'm remembering correctly. I was burning more calories doing the programs, I am keeping up with the Biggest Looser 2 dvd & adding Just Dance 2 for an extra boost on "days off"

GOAL for march is 28 miles & 570minutes strength/cardio

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE COME ON SPRING!!!!

I was able to meet my goal of 1800 minutes of exercise in February and since March is a slightly longer month, I'm going to go for 2000 minutes of exercise!

3/1: 100 min @ gym (elliptical, bike, treadmill, strength training)

My goal for March is 1600 mintues. I'm going to continue marking with a * the days that I do a different exercise than the day before, because variety really reduces my aches and pains.

I'll post our collective goals as a list tomorrow.

Hi strength! (great username) You'll want to post this goal under our sister thread -- March Weight Loss Thread. Do you have an exercise plan to help you reach your weight loss goal? That's what we'll keep track of here.
