I'm setting my target for 50 miles this month. I'm going to try to add some weights & swimming this month, so I'm going above Feb's goal, but less than what I actually did in Feb.

0/50 so far!

I am new to these boards, but up to the challenge!

I am going to set a goal of running 35miles.


So far so good, I did 2 miles this morning...and took a 1 mile family walk after dinner.---That was a bonus!

2/40


Good luck to everyone!

Welcome to our newcomers! Really glad to see you here!

I'm setting my bar high with 76 miles and 10 / 20 min strength or stretch sessions. I've got an extremely busy Holy Week so I'm only planning 8 miles for that week, but hoping the weather will get nice so I can hit it hard the last week of the month. I've done no walking so far. Two of my children competed in a regional math competition this weekend that is hosted by the Knights of Columbus. While travelling I did swim a lot. One session I did laps for 15 min straight. I haven't swum laps in like 4 yrs so I was pleased with my endurance. Legs and arms are sore, but a good sore. DS took second at regionals and continues to state in April. DD took 4th. Good score, but you have to be 1st or 2nd to continue. I'm very proud!

Have a great Sunday!

I am going to stick to my goal of 75 miles again this month. I will be working out of town quite a bit this month too. I will be starting a new job tomorrow so I hope the hotel is in a good walking area or has a gym, not sure yet where we are staying.

Angie and I went to church last night and will be going later this afternoon for a "party" for our new building kick-off, so we took the dogs on a Starbucks walk this morning and did a loop through bunny poo park.

GOOD LUCK this month ladies!

4/75 miles
