JULY! 1000 Minute Challenge!!!!! Everyone JOIN IN!!!!!!!

Good Morning!!!

Jump on in and post your workouts. You can post any form of exercise that works for you. Set a goal for yourself and have some accountability.

I post cardio but if walking in the mall is your exercise then go for it! My goals in the past were too lofty! So this month I'm bringing it down, especially since it is summer and things are busy busy busy.

WELCOME!!

7/1 - 35 minute trail run

Welcome, violetflapjack!

also on 7/1 15 minutes watered plants + 20 minutes picked up sticks + 20 minute mile at sunset = 55
7/2 20 minute mile at sunrise + 15 minutes watering plants = 35
7/4 25 minute mile at sunrise + 60 minutes shopping (lots of walking) + 10 minutes up and down stairs unloading groceries = 95
30 + 55 + 35 + 95 = 215/2,000

May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

7/7 3 miles ~75 minutes
7/8 2 miles so far ~50 minutes
75 + 50 = 125

275 + 125 = 400/2,000

I would be walking more but it is rainy season here and I don't want to go out while it's thundering (even if most of the time it isn't raining, just thundering).

May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

I may not make my goal this month for the first time in three months. When it's not thundering or raining, it's 90 degrees here in rainy season Florida.

50 + 35 = 85
1160 + 85 = 1,245/2,000

+ 1 hour walking while shopping + 1 mile walked at sunset = 85
1,245 + 85 = 1,330/2,000
