Default January Walk/Run Challenge

Welcome to 2007!!! Letís set a mileage goal for January and walk/run our way into the New Year! Anybody who is interested in walking, running, or both, please join me!

I am starting to train for a triathlon, so my mileage wonít be as high as previous months since Iím planning to split my workouts between running/walking, biking and swimming. However, I still want to get 80 miles in for the month Ė so LETíS DO IT!!!!

January Goal = 80 miles
Miles Completed = 5 (run/walk = 3/2)
Miles to Go = 75

I have a long business trip mid-month and will be out of town for 2 weeks. Then, at the end of the month I have a weekend away with my girlfriends from my book club (7 ladies in a beachfront condo in St. Augustine, FL Ė I canít wait!!). So my month is pretty full, but Iím determined to meet my goal.

What is your goal????

I'm in, Genesis! I need to get back on track and this is just the challenge to help me do that!

January Goal = 70 miles
Miles completed = 4.1
Miles to go = 65.9

I'm taking a group of students to Spain in June and really want to be lighter and more fit by then! This can only help!

Thanks!

Michele

Hi gals-Good to see some new goals for the month. I'm gonna shoot for 80 miles this month. I think I'll try to do like Genesis and distinguish between my running and walking miles.

I started the new year with a cold and didn't do much of anything yesterday, but I did get up for my usual 4 mile walk this morning. I'm hoping I feel good enough for a run tomorrow, but I'm a bit congested so we'll see.

January goal-80 miles
miles done -0/4 (run/walk)
miles to go -76

S/C/G: Unhealthy/see ticker/happy

Height: 5ft 9in

Default I'm in !

I am not a running but I am trying to walk and I have walked 1.76 miles so far this year. I am going to try to work up to running but I need to get back in shape first so I'm going to say by March 1st I will be walking/running interval training. But for now I will say I will walk .

SIZE="5"][/size][January Goal-25 miles (not so much compared all of you but I think realistic for me)/FONT]

I take classes also, so I get other cardio. I am hoping to do a marathon with my hubby before or for my 40th( I'm only 36 and have never ran in my life, except away from my brother as a kid ).
Good luck to all!

I will try it. I use this book from Runner's World and currently am walking 2 minutes and running 2 minutes. I did a 5k yesterday and 1.5 miles this morning. I guess I will count my miles completed run and walk.

January Goal 70 miles

I will try and make a ticker... I love this site.

Accountability. How fun!

January Goal - 60 miles

If I can figure out how to do a second ticker, I'll do that. Lest I forget the goal! :-p

Hey! I'm new here and would love to join your challenge. While I'm not yet ready to commit to 80 miles, I've set my goal at 50 miles for the month of January. I've completed 2.5 of them this a.m. I mostly use a treadmill (I'm one of the few people who actually like the TM!), although the incline is broken (flood) and I can only use it flat. I also walk my BEST dog in the whole world so that will also help! Looking forward for this challenge and motivation!! Nice to meet you all.

Jo

Hi everyone! This sounds like a great idea, count me in. I ran 107 miles in December, so I'll set a goal of 120 for January. This is a little more than a 10% increase, but will be challenging because I'm going to be on a vacation at the end of the month. Hope I can get in a good chunk of miles before I leave - and maybe this will motivate me to keep it going while I'm traveling!

I ran 4.1 miles yesterday and 6.7 today, so I'm off to a good start at least.

Hmm...I'm in but I 'll have to do some math to tell you what my January goal is, I only know what my 2007 goal is and I know January is not 1/12th as I will be ramping up to a marathon.
