Arrow July Exercise Challenge

We're exercising with July's explosive energy!

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: July Weight Loss Challenge

For July my goal is to walk on the treadmill 4x per week for 30 minute intervals. My hope is to increase the incline past 5 and the speed past 3 by the end of the month.

Welcome, brwneydgrl5, flower1, and Tabbycat!

Who else wants to jump in? I'll compose our goal list in a day or two, so there's time to be part of our initial list.

Gardnerjoy: Congrats on exercising every day for the last 5 years! That is incredibly impressive You have inspired me to see if I can exercise for 22 days per month for at least 20 minutes. I may increase it after I am able to make this goal. I've added this as a second goal for July.

July goal: 1100 minutes of exercise and exercise 24 days in July (for at least 20 minutes or more each time)

07-02: golf game 20/1100, 1/24 days of exercise (I played golf for 2 hours but only counting 20 minutes - walk time during game)
07-04: 85 hike 105/1100, 2/24 days
07/05: 100 hike 205/1100, 3/24 days
07/06: 35 walk 240/1100, 4/24 days
07/08: 80 hike 320/1100, 5/24 days
07/09: 110 hike 430/1100, 6/24 days
