Default May Exercise Challenge

Let's move in the Merry Month of May!

This is our monthly exercise challenge thread. All are welcome, whether your goal is to walk ten minutes a day or train for a marathon.

State your goal and track it throughout the month with a supportive group encouraging each other to meet our goals. We'll compile our exercise goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

For weight loss goals, see our sister thread: May Weight Loss Challenge

I'll be on vacation for part of month. I'll be walking a lot, but I don't want to count the minutes, so I'm going to set my goal lower this month to count the exercise when I'm not out of town.

My goal for May: 1000 minutes
