First, let me pay my respect to the soldiers who have lost their lives while serving and protecting our great country:
May God continue to comfort those families who have lost a love one and protect our troops still fighting on foreign soil!!!
NOW, one of my friends posted a summer challenge on facebook yesterday and of course I was ALL on it 🙂 The challenge was posted on Runner’s World called
And you ask what exactly are you supposed to do? Just run/walk/wun at least one mile per day until July 4th. If you have lost your mojo or falling off the fitness wagon this is the perfect time to hop right back on. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall what matters the most is how you recover. I personally have not reached all of my fitness goals and I’m not going to go into a laundry list of excuses why. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, who is ready to get fine during the summertime?
So AFTER, you finish eating all the BBQ, baked beans, potato salad, etc all you can stand go take a nice long walk right before the sun goes down. YES, I know it is HAWT as hell I live in HAWT Alabama. You can get up early or go late in the evening BUT save the excuses. Drink plenty of water, Gatorade or powerade and you will be good to go. One mile a day for 38 days is a breeze. HOWEVER, the ultimate goal is to make them consecutive days…….meaning you MUST do this everyday. If you are on vacation you can do a mile walking around a mall or shopping center. Just “Get ER DONE!” If you have ever done any of the 30 Day Cardio Challenges Mr Shut Up and Train has been sending fitness challenges every week. Also, the ladies of Tone it Up send out weekly challenges. These are things you can do for FREE at home. There is really no excuse for letting your health go. Time to get back to fitness business. Are you in on the challenge?
