Default October Exercise Challenge

This feels funny, I've never started a thread before! But here are FSA's words of wisdom:

Hi ladies : ) Here is to a new month!

To those of you who would like to join in....please feel free. All are welcome and we are here to post our minutes/goals to hold ourselves accountable and to help support and encourage one another.

We all have various goals and different fitness levels, there is no wrong or right here whether it be 10 min. a day or walk 3x a week, etc. We tailor our workouts according to our own best individual needs. The girls here rock and are very supportive so if you should be just starting out don't hesitate .

Exercise goals will be listed listed here, while weight loss goals, etc. will be listed in our sister thread, "OctoberWeight Loss Challenge".

Thanks for starting us up Tummy!!!'s see...

October Exercise Goals~

Start P90X (still trying to decide if I'm starting on the 1st or on Monday)
Try not to keel over dead from the P90X--that would be an 'unofficial goal'
Keep on running at least 3 miles 3X/Wk
HIIT 3X/Wk if P90X doesn't kill me

I am really looking forward to changing up my workout! While my old ST'ing routine has definitely worked, I'm beyond bored with it.

Here's to another fantastaic month ladies!!!!!

Again, I've been thinking about my goals for this month and I really feel as though I have a sustainable exercise plan going on right now and so I'm going to keep it up with just one little difference.

Curves: 3x per week
Abs: 2x per week w/ official video (bye bye half hearted situps!)

And as for the change... I want to continue my running 3x per week but I want to increase my distance to 3 miles. I have an entire month to do it so here's hoping!

So glad to get to start over. I hated seeing my first week of September over and over! LOL So, here's the good stuff...

My October Goals:
1. 1800 minutes
2. Running 5X/wk (follow new 5K training program)
3. ST 2X/wk (continue and expand current program)

I MAY add one more element, but I'm going to wait and see what works for me. My first idea was foiled (as mentioned in the Sept. Weight Loss thread), and I didn't have a back-up. It may take me a few days to find an acceptable alternative.

Ok, I'm in!
I'm going to run 3 times every week. I also have sessions with my PT twice a week, but I don't think that's a goal because they're booked in and stuff

One very specific goal. Repeat my September goal of 968 minutes and actually get them this time.

One more vague but important goal: Figure out whether I'm buying a treadmill or joining a gym for winter workouts.

I didn't do the exercise one for September, but I'm gonna give it a go.

~ Strength Training at least 2x/week
~ Be able to jog for longer than 5 minutes
~ Aim for 275 minutes of exercise/week

The jogging one might go away. I have bad exercise induced asthma, but it's getting better the more I'm doing walking/jogging intervals, so I'm hoping I can get my lungs trained.

I'm in! I was looking for this thread yesterday - so happy it's here today. This is the first Exercise Challenge I have done. Here are my goals:

Workout 5x/week for a minimum of 1000 minutes
Workouts will consist of strength and cardio videos and
Start C25K - I've been saying "I'm going to start this!" for over a month now and never have, but now it's going to happen!!

Please help keep me accountable - especially for the C25K!
