Mini Challenge Results

Walk 50 Miles in May

Guidelines
May has 31 days, so that's just over 1.6 miles a day! You can count any type of walking you want - all day mileage using a pedometer or specific walks. If you are a beginning walker/exerciser, start slow and do what you can do. It is better to do a little each day or several days a week than to try to walk 10 miles all at once on the weekend. If you have been walking for a while, feel free to walk further. Have fun and get moving!

Results for everyone:
Successful:
AmethystM: Yep - over 70 miles. more...
BlueEyedAussie: End total was 63.5 miles! more...

Mini Challenge Results

Stretch After Your Walk

Guidelines
Whether it's toe points, ankle circles, quad stretches, or wall pushes - or all of the above! - do something after your walk to make sure you are stretching those muscles.

Failed:
AmethystM: Still need to make it a priority to stretch on breaks and when I get home from work. more...

Mini Challenge Results

Add some Intensity!

Guidelines
Walking is great for your cardiovascular health. Now, for an even bigger boost, let's add some intensity! Some people call them fartleks and some people call it HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training. For at least one walk this week, get moving. Start with 30 seconds to 1 minute of walking fast, then 1-3 minutes of recovery. Repeat for 15-30 minutes of your walk. These short bursts of quick steps will get your heart pounding, and you'll be breathing heavy! Do what you can, and report in. Alternately, you can walk with Nordic poles if you have them. Just using them (which I find a little awkward and have to practice with) can burn up to 3 times the calories as well as get your heart pumping, though it seems like you're exerting the same amount of effort as your regular walk! Try it if you've got them.

I Met My Goal!

Guidelines
Since so many of us are doing different things, I wanted to put in a mini-challenge so everyone can brag about their results. Whether your goal was 20 miles, 75 miles, 10,000 steps a day, or something else, let us know how you're doing! You can check in weekly or at the end. Or anytime in between. :)

Results for everyone:
Successful:
lenakh: Even though I didn't hit 50 with intentional walking, I was very close and all in ... more...
MDBF67: walked a total of 14 miles this week. I think I may have hit my 50. more...

Failed:
AmethystM: I fell short of the 10,000 steps a day, but had an overall total of 145.75 miles ... more...
