April 2016 - Move Your @ss Challenge

darkrider42 Posts: 4,986 Member
Okay *kitten* movers, here's the new thread for the April 2016 Move Your *kitten* Challenge!

PLEASE READ the directions below.

Welcome to the newbies and welcome back to the oldies!

"Rules of the Challenge"
1. Set your goal and post it to the thread....distance ONLY (Miles or KMs) - NO minutes, NO # of workouts, NO # of calories, NO # of steps - DISTANCE ONLY.
2. Make your ticker if you want to use one (see directions below or in the FAQ thread) or add your goal to the thread.
3. Get moving your @ss starting Friday, April 1st.
4. Post as often as you can to the thread so we can keep the sheet (see link below) up to date. You are welcome to report what you are moving each time BUT please make sure you post the TOTAL miles (kms) moved each time you update.

Please don't post any MARCH miles here. We will continue updating the MARCH spreadsheet using the MARCH thread for approximately the first 5 or so days of April. Please add only your April goals/miles to this April thread. Got it? :smiley:

The purpose is to set a distance goal (KM or Miles) and track your distance for the month - please only do one or the other...if you are doing KM just report in KM - we have a formula in the spreadsheet that will convert it to miles for us.

You are challenging yourself, not competing against anyone else.....the distance can be on a treadmill, stairmaster, elliptical, bike, roller blades, walking, running, biking, hiking, swimming (if you can measure).....just set a distance goal and do the work.

Report to the thread often to keep us updated because we track our info on a spreadsheet (see link below) so you can see how you are doing compared to the group but not to openly compete with them. (Whatever goes on inside your own brain is your own business. :wink: )

The idea is to set your goal and reach it before the end of the month.

Welcome to all - new and old.....have a great month challenging yourself!

Link to the Google spreadsheet where you can view (but not edit). The Challenge Admins will update it for you at mostly random times.... ....but typically at least once a day. Don't hold us to that though. :smile:


Directions for making a ticker:
Go to tickerfactory.com and create a weight loss/fitness ticker (link is lower left side of page). Then copy the "BB code" and paste it into your posts on this thread each time you do an update. (More detailed info is located in the FAQ thread on the MYAC Group page.)

Welcome and we hope you enjoy your stay and that you find this helpful in realizing your fitness goals!

    In April - I'm going to move to 125 miles as my goal. It is spring after all, right? Outside time always gives me a boost. I at least am going to believe its spring despite todays snow storm.

    Upping my target slightly to 150 m cycling, running or purposeful walking - (annual MTD - 465.01). If the weather continues to improve the cycle may get an airing!!

    Thanks for all the hard work that you guys do on the spread sheet.

    In 14 days I will have completed C25K and will be doing my first Park Run. On Sunday I'm doing a practice run with some of the running group, all of whom are half my age!! I'm looking forward to it - but not so sure that my hips and knees are!!

    Edited for typo (damn predictive text)
