A Fitness Challenge for 2011

Nope, not another book challenge, but this challenge is intriguing and I'm definitely signing up since it can help me reach my health and fitness goal for 2011.

It's the

400 Mile Fitness Challenge 2011

The challenge will run from January 1st thru December 31st

The purpose is to reach the equivalent of 400 miles (at least) during the year, not a set number of miles a day.

Every Saturday starting 1/8/11, come back here and add the link to your update post. If you'd rather post an update every two weeks, that's fine too, but please visit a few participants every week and give them support.

What counts:
mile for mile-
walking/jogging/running outside or inside on a treadmill
biking inside or inside on a recumbent, spin or stationary bike
WATP Mile DVD's: 1mile walk, 2 mile walk etc.

15 min. equals 1 mile-
step aerobics
weight lifting
workout videos
exercise classes

Minutes and miles can roll over:
If you only walk for 3/4 mile, or exercise for 10 minutes, you can add those minutes/minutes to the next day.

Hey Diana,
Just stopping by to say hi and let you know I put up my miles this week on my blog. We have a small team, but hopefully it will grow. I'm also a new follower. Take care, Good Luck.
