Default July walk, run, bike challenge

It's the first of July and it's time to set our goals. Whether you walk, run, ride a bike, do elliptical, whatever your pleasure lets log our miles and minutes and help eacho ther succeed.

I walked the 4.25 mile loop with Laurie today. It was super hot, but we made it!!! I'm going with a 31 hour goal again for this month, because I'm actually accomplishing more miles that way!

1 hour 5 minutes of 31 hours
4.25 walk miles

Hmmm, I'm not sure yet what my goals are, but know I should have some! I'm starting with the South Beach diet supercharged program tomorrow, so I will have to check the workout guidelines in the book, then I'll post my goals here .

HAPPY JULY EVERYONE!

WELCOME LULUMUM

GREAT START SUPER K!

I started the month off pretty good tonight with a 3.25 mile treadmill walk after work.

I will stick with my usual goal for now, have no idea where or how much I will be working the next few weeks...a lot of variables. A good time to take off with Angie being home....if possible.

3.25/75 MILES

LET'S ROCK and ROLL JULY!

Hello Everyone. So far I started July on the right foot. I ran 4 miles yesterday and another 4 miles this morning. I don't know when I will get out there again, but since the parents will be in town visiting for the 4th, I am hoping to get out one day at the end of the week.

Keep up the good work!

8/45

Have a great week-end GALS!

Welcome LuLu, Looking forward to getting to know you. Good luck with your new progarm!

Sotypical, Welcome aboard here. It's always great to crash right through our goal. Good luck. You're doing just awesome.

Gary, You're really rockin' this month already. Terrific! MMMMM home made pizza.

Hey Baskgal, you're really movin' it out already this month too!

As for me, I'm getting old LOL We had an old fashion free beer, food, and a DJ, for my DH and my BIL's 40th b-days on Thursday the 3rd. We picked the 3rd, because few people have to work on the 4th. We held it at the local "hole in the wall." It's where many in our area got drunk for the first time. It's a bar, owned by an elderly couple, that literally sits in the middle of the corn field. In the middle of nowhere. A lot of nostalgia. We had a couple 100 people show up and I danced almost non-stop from 6pm - 2am. I didn't have too much to drink, but my throat is still sore from all the second hand smoke and all the screaming!!!! The dj is a friend and he brought all the music we all loved when we were young. So....I'm counting 3 hours of that for exercise since my knees still hurt today....dancing barefoot on a concrete floor...not such a good idea when 44 is right around the corner...and I got my 3FC 5K done today..so I'm adding 4 hours and 3 miles. Hope everyone else had a terrific vaca too!

4 hours 5 minutes of 31 hours
7.25 walk miles

lovnmom....sounds like you had a great time!

EZ...great job this weekend! Did you watch the Federer/Nadal match today? Wow!!

Anyway, I didn't do anything this weekend in reference to my exercise. I worked all weekend and it rained everyday after I got home. My parents were in town, so I had the opportunity to get out there, but mother nature had other ideas.

I fully intend on getting out there today! Have a Happy Sunday!
