24 Hours of Exercise per Month Challenge - FEBRUARY 2020

JDMac82JDMac82 Member Posts: 2,110 Member Member Posts: 2,110 Member
Here's the 24 hour challenge thread for FEBRUARY. Let's do it again!! And welcome to any newcomers!

The goal is to accomplish at least 24 hours of exercise during the month.(MORE IS GREAT) Any type of activity that you would log in your exercise diary counts (both cardio and strength training) ~ walking, running, paddling, biking, swimming, gardening, weight training, dancing, HIIT, aerobics, elliptical, rowing, circuit training, stretching, etc. You get the idea.

For you BEASTS out there (you know who you are), if you want to do more, just post your personal goal that is over the baseline challenge goal.

And for anyone who wants to join part of the way through, just post a comparable goal to finish out the month (for example, joining half way through, post a goal of 12 hours).

There is no group for this and no private messages needed. No fancy spreadsheets either, just report your running totals here in the thread.

Happy Exercising!!

Last month's thread is here for examples on how to log your info:

    Can you and how do you put in your 10,000 steps for the day? Does that count?

    this is more for tracking active time, so on your fitbit app it shows you how many minutes of active time you did.

    15 mins = 1/4
    30 = 1/2
    45 = 3/4
    60 = 1hour

    so if you show 122 mins youd have log 2.0 active hours, hopefully that helps.

    Thanks @JDMac82 for bringing us into February! The accountability this group has given me has helped me stick to my exercise program and lose 10 pounds in January. I still have a long way to go; but, happily, it is in a direction I am pleased with going! See you on the 1st!

    This is a great challenge. I was planning on doing 12 hours total this month but I’ll push myself to do 24 hrs! First time doing this!
  • lalabanklalabank Member Posts: 935 Member Member Posts: 935 Member
    @JDMac82 Thanks for being our host! It’s a great party!

    I think I’ll stick to 40hrs in this short month, the crazy person in me wants to say 50 but that just seems daunting and maybe unnecessary to push myself to. But now that I’ve thrown 50hrs out into the universe...

    1/2- 2hrs (1hr boot camp & 1hr kickboxing)

    I am going to boost my exercise to 30 hours a month.

    Just started exercising (treadmill) 2 weeks ago first week was 30 per day and last week average was 40 minutes per day.
    I will try to keep increasing weekly to hit the 24 hour goal for this month. (fingers crossed)
