Tomorrow is the start of February.

I'm setting myself the challenge of walking 130 miles this month.
In January I exceed the 100 miles challenge, so I wanted to push myself a little more this coming month.... anyone else fancy joining in?

Set yourself a goal & walk, swim, run or crawl, but do whatever you can to meet the goal :smiley:

I have set up a spreadsheet, just add your name & goal & I will make sure the formulas work: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lhJ3_-j1rz9qeGBfUVhlMugfR5jvorYO3KwGCAsJFy8/edit#gid=0

    No permission, in the top right under the share tab you need to set it so people with the link can edit and then post the "shareable" link. Otherwise we can't see. I will post this up in the announcements.

    My goal for Feb is 111 miles. To reach my goal for the year I need to do 100 miles a month so my goal reflects the 100 miles I need for Feb + the 11 miles I was short in Jan. My runs are getting longer as I am getting closer to the half marathon and in theory the weather should be improving soon so hopefully I can get out for more walks and runs.

    My goal this month is 117.5 miles or 188km. I will know how much I am short from January at the end of this evening.

    Spreadsheet works! Love the new format.
  • I really would like to thank you for this challange, I actually enjoy it plus I like to see my progress with my distance. I went from 0 to 20 in no time. For this month I am going to try to do 81 miles since it's my sisters birthday this month and she was born in 81 hehehe B)

    Managed a solid 6.6 miles on the treadmill today. I popped a movie on Netflix and muddled my way through. It wasn't a very good run, it ended up more like intervals but I got it done and am done with week 4 of half marathon training! 8 weeks until race day.

    Thank you HatherM! I like the new format too. I'm putting the same goal as last month: 65 miles.

    I didn't see your goal on the chart, so I just added it. Cheers.

    1.5 miles treadmill intervals, 1.5 miles snowblowing my damn driveway. I am sick of snow, got another 13 or so inches today to leave us at ~50 inches in the last 10 days.

    I'm setting my February goal at my regular 65 plus the 23 I came up short last month. 88 miles in total to catch up. I realize it's a short month and that's pretty steep but the weather is becoming nicer and the sun is staying longer. Tomorrow I'm attempting my first run since breaking my toe, so I may re-work my numbers as things progress. Another 10K in less than 2 weeks

    I'm not sure if I'll keep up with logging, but hopefully it will help me move more!
  • Good luck jemSurf I hope your toe healed well and you can be back to normal now. I know broken bones are no fun and I can't imagine a toe :(

    Thank you for adding me neurex, I don't sign on my computer everyday so I keep my miles in my planner till I do :) For some reason I cannot add to the doc page on my phone.

    Smdelzer I thought so too, but it really burned a fire under my butt because I'm working towards something. If you don't log in to a computer everyday, you can do what I do, just keep your tally in a planner or calendar and when you do sign on you can just log it then :)

    I love seeing so many people joining in on this challenge!

    Tuesday I set out to do 4 miles on the treadmill. After 2.5 I was having some shin pain on my left leg so I finished off with 0.5 miles walking at a 12 incline so I would have no impact. My heart rate stayed in the the zone I wanted and my shin felt a million times better.

    No miles Wednesday, that is Yoga day and with the 4 feet of snow outside there is no room to walk after work.

    I got back on the treadmill today, 4.1 mile run no problem with my shin. I got a nice start to this month. Now to keep the momentum going!
