100 Day Challenge

John, The Penguin, Bingham posted on his facebook a few days back about a hundred day challenge....doing 30 minutes of planned exercise daily for 100 days. He now has over 4000 ppl who have accepted that challenge. I'm one! Are you?

Read about it here; http://www.teampenguin.com/100days.php

As I was reviewing 2010, I noted a lack of consistancy in my exercise program. Some missed workouts were due to injury, some due to lack of planning otherwise known as poor excuses, some due to pure laziness. I intend to correct all of that in 2011.

I have a BIL who has a running streak of over 3333 days. He says that is nothing compared to some. I read of one guy who has run everyday for over 40 YEARS!! Surely, I can do some sort of sustained movement for 100 days. Can you? Are you with me? Are you with John?

I ran/walked 3+ miles todays in the pouring rain.

If you are in the challenge, let us know. If not, now is the time to start. It is day 1 of month 1 of year 11.

Waddle on!

    Me, too!  Did a speedy (LOL) 1.7 miles in 31 minutes as my first outing after a two month hiatus.  Time to get a waddle-on...

    'm in too!  I'm new here and I am training for the Indianapolis Mini Marathon in May.  I haven't been doing anything!  Today I ran/walked 1.5 miles in 28 minutes.  Good start!

     

    If anyone has any suggestions, help, resources that I could follow for training for the Mini I would appreciate hearing from you!

    Re: 100 Day Challenge

    Marie,

     

    I have been following John's Facebook and will be getting my wife to join in as soon as the doctor releases her to start exercising.

    Foot surgery on both feet has put her on the couch.

    This is a great motivator for the hardest time of the year.
