Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. In my part of the country it was a gloriously beautiful weekend weather-wise. On Saturday, I spent a considerable amount of time working on the annual garage purge (which hasn’t happened in a few years, so it is EXTRA difficult). Yesterday we celebrated my wife’s birthday, so I didn’t get out for a walk. But, I am still on a good pace. Here is my chart so far, including 5.00 miles on the treadmill this morning:
Many people contacted me with questions about what does or doesn’t count for this challenge. Some questions came here, others on Facebook. The bottom line is this, the point of the challenge is to increase our movement in the month of May. Some people (like me), are walking. Others are running. Still others are biking or swimming. Do whatever works for you. Some have asked me about the 100 miles portion of it. Again, that is my goal, and the goal of some other people. My best advice to you is to tailor what you are doing based on your own physical condition and limitations, and according to what you are doing (run, walk, bike, swim, etc.).
There really aren’t any rules. Set a goal for yourself that represents a stretch, and then work to achieve it. Oh, and have fun doing it. If it is too much of a chore, you won’t stick with it and build new, healthy habits.
So, how are you doing so far?
