Default September Walking Challenge

Ok Ladies...it's a new month! Time to set your mileage goal for September!

I just barely made my 135 mile August walking goal, but I did make it! Yay me! My September goal is 180 miles. I'm training for the breast cancer 3-Day in Tampa Bay in October, so don't feel any pressure to walk 180 miles yourself. I certainly wouldn't be walking 180 miles unless I needed to in order to prepare for the 60 mile breast cancer walk!

Please join me as we walk our way through September!

I'm in for 90 miles for September with 4 of them done this morning. This might be pushing a bit, but I think I can do it.

Wow Genesis-most impressive!!

I'm new to 3FC and will make a modest start on the walking challenge. I'm going to say 60 miles and I've done 3 of them today.

Welcome, Tejas!

60 miles is a GREAT goal and is certainly not modest!

Congrats on your first 3 miles for the month...keep it up!

Thank you for the welcome. I thought that I could do 3 miles a day for five days a week fairly easily. Then I would add another 15 somewhere along the way.

I like to walk but manage to lose every pedometer I buy. I've marked off a route in the neigbborhood and will use the treadmill.

This should be fun.

I'm increasing my goal to 85 miles this month! I've made 80 the past two months, so this should be achieveable! I'm also aiming for "Onederland" this month! Only 4 pounds to go!

good morning gang

I haven't been on the walking thread in months, but I'm back today. I'm off of work and slept in and then did 3 miles with Leslie! whooohoooo Now if my boss doesn't mind me sleeping in again tomorrow I will do the same but really I've got to figure out a way to get my walking back in...I'll either have to get up at 5 each morning and do it, or I'll have to walk during lunch, but one way or the other, I've got to get back to it.

Hope everybody has a bkessed day!

Cathy

I did 3 miles on the treadmill today! woohoo! I really need to find a safe place to walk, where I can keep track of how many miles I'm doing, because this treadmill is NOT reliable, not to mention it's in the dusty garage. I might try to do a couple more miles tonight if I have the energy. Hope everyone is doing well!

Welcome everybody! So nice to see so many people here this month!

Stacey99, check back in as often as you'd like. I tend to check in fairly regularly to post my miles and keep myself on track. I post my miles in the following format, but you can do whatever you'd like.

September goal = 180 miles
Miles walked = 10
Miles to go = 170

I have a quesiton for everyone, is it OK to walk without an incline? I am doing a 0 percent incline and walking at about 3 mph.

Hi guys-My walk was cut short this morning and I only logged in 2 miles. My walking partner and I ran a 5K yesterday and her knee was flaring up this morning.

2 cool things from the holiday weekend:

I ran a mile race and hit exactly an 8 minute mile (I have NEVER run that fast!)

I ran the 5K in 28:04. That is a personal best for me, and it was a cross country course which I'm always slower on!!!! HAPPY ME!

Anyways,

September goal - 90 miles
Miles walked - 14 miles
Miles to go - 76 miles

Its great to see so many walkers around this month.
