Talking March Walk/Run Challenge

Hope no one minds that I started the new thread! We have a long month and Spring is starting to appear (or will soon)! What are your goals?


Mine is simple: 90 miles

March Goal: 90 fitness miles
Miles completed: 5 miles
Miles remaining: 85 miles


Have a great day!


Michele

I'll be in for 125 again. I'm confident I'll hit it this month having had a look at my training plan, so I might even up it a bit later in the month.

Today I did 35 minutes of speedwork on the treadmill to start me off with:

I'm only commiting to 50 this month. I feel terrible after failing to reach my goals for the past 2 months. The weather here is always unpredictable for this month and I hate the treadmill and do other workouts on nasty days so I'm gonna be realistic.

That's what I call a good run. Just about 20 miles, and I ran every step of it in just over 3 hours. That's bumped the total up a bit!

24.1/125

5 miles cross country today. The courses aren't accurately measured, but it felt roughly that so that's what I'll claim.

Count me in too! I am running a 5K on March 31, so I really need to get in gear!

Goal: 55 miles

I will also do some cross training (with the FIRM), but this won't count toward my miles.

I have already done 3 miles, so 52 to go!
