Arrow October Exercise Challenge

Let's rock October!

State your exercise goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our workout goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: October Weight Loss Challenge

I'm going to lower my strength-training goal since I didn't meet it last month and I expect to do some canvassing this month -- more steps, less time or energy for yoga workouts.

October goal: 1400 minutes, including 25x stretching and 8x strength-training

I'm in again this month Gardenerjoy. I was thinking about lowering my goal since I didn't make my goal last month but I think I'll keep it the same and see how I do.

I'm aiming for 800 minutes.

Good luck everyone

Gardenerjoy: I'm off to a slow start too. I haven't been able to get any walking in due to the smoke from the forest fires - air quality is really poor. It started improving today so I was able to get a walk in.

05: 50 walk (50/800)
