The Great Walking Challenge 2014

I have decided to join in on The Great Walking Challenge 2014. Basically you set a goal to walk/run an amount of miles and accomplish it in that year! I think this is fun and can’t wait to start!

The rules of the game are simple!

  1. The number of miles you choose is up to you, but it has to be AT LEAST 365 miles. Anything over that is up to you. Make sure it is something challenging (if you already walk a mile a day, obviously it would have to be something over that)
  2. You don’t have to walk every day, as long as you meet your final goal by December 31, 2014. If your goal is 500 miles, and you would like to do two 5-mile walks a week, then there you go. Just try to stay on a regular schedule.
  3. Treadmill walking will count. I know that personally, I don’t feel like walking in the pouring rain all the time, so I’m going to be hitting the gym every once in a while.
  4. That’s about it. Have fun, and feel good about bettering yourself!

I have decided to set my goal for 800 miles! I would like to do 20 miles a week and I hope that even in the cold winter days I can still get out and do my four miles a day! My goal for the new year is to loose another 30 pounds to match the 30 I lost this past year!

    How are you doing so far? I hope you are keeping it up, hard to sometimes in cold weather dreary winter. My goal was to cut out carbs and sugar and go to the gym, so far its been going pretty well.
