So, I had an idea, and I want to know if anyone is interested in doing this. I used to work at a gym that did something called the Ironman Challenge. Basically, over the course of 6 weeks, participants would complete a full Ironman Triathalon (2.4 mile swim; 112 mile bike ride; and 26.2 mile run). I was wondering if you guys would like to do something similar, but without the biking or swimming (I know a lot of us don't have access to a swimming pool or a bike, but we all have tennis shoes!). I was thinking that, for a month, we could track our walk/jog mileage every week and post the previous week's mileage on Monday? I could call the post "Marathon Monday" or something? A marathon is 26.2 miles, so it would average to under 1 mile per day, which is totally do-able, even for most people who have always been sedentary. You could also create your own goals...if 26.2 miles a month isn't enough to challenge you, you might shoot for a marathon and a half-marathon (39.3 miles) or two marathons (52.4 miles). Or if you're ordinarily a walker, maybe you could shoot for running 26.2 miles this month? I don't know, these are just ideas...let me know what you guys think, and I truly apologize for this big wall of text!
I would totally be interested in that. And it sounds doable, which is always a plus in my book! - PrincessKristin   780.8 #300 1-1-12 9:31PM Like  Reply
This is my guilt post after the glass of Cupcake wine, lol! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  719.9 #334 1-1-12 9:32PM
And thanks for responding so quickly! This should be fun! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  719.9 #334 1-1-12 9:32PM
I will commit to 26.2 miles before my trip on Feb. 1. That will be a good goal for me, even if I don't walk everyday. I'm going to break it down for every 5 days, cuz I don't want to gave to walk 20 miles on Jan 31! - PrincessKristin  780.8 #300 1-1-12 9:42PM
Cool! Yeah, I think you could do like 1.5-2 miles a few days a week and be fine. :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  719.9 #334 1-1-12 9:46PM
I'm in! Sounds like a great idea. - mozbaby   148.9 #2920 1-2-12 7:59AM Like  Reply
Im in - I plan to walk 3 to 5 miles per day for the next 6 weeks in preparation for a WDW trip  - but I like this idea! - princessSue   270.7 #1307 1-2-12 9:05AM Like  Reply
Great! I'll get a formal post going, and we can start tracking mileage :). Yay! This'll be fun! - Spoonful_O_Sugar   719.9 #334 1-2-12 10:28AM Like  Reply
Txt me your email if you want a chart to.mark off each mile (yes, I'm kind of dorky like that) - PrincessKristin  780.8 #300 1-2-12 10:32AM
