A little over a month ago I panicked because I didn't think I was doing enough to prepare for my friend's wedding. So I decided in order to get serious, I needed to set a serious goal for myself. 100 miles on the elliptical in September sounded about right.
As it stands, today I will finish that goal with the final 8 miles.
Looking ahead, I want to do 120 miles on the elliptical in October.
I want to challenge all of you to set yourself a serious goal for October as well.
(**Disclaimer: please talk to your doctor(s), trainer(s) before taking on any new exercise program or challenge to decide what is most appropriate for your ability and health.**)
As the focus of my journey isn't necessarily about the weight, but how much I push myself this will not be a weigh-in type competition. Heck, I don't even know if this is a competition at all. This is about going the distance, and reaching the goal you set for yourself.
So sign up! I will be tracking all of the particiants' miles on a spreadsheet but feel free to print out an individual participant chart to track your own statistics.
If you want to do 2 different modalities (such as Run + Bike) please refresh the form and enter a form for each!
The Twitter hash tag will be #OctGTD if you want to follow along.
Please EMAIL ME your weekly distances (
broken out by day, each Friday) so I can update the official chart.
I will post any updates HERE.
