Weekly Challenge: You In?

Lace up those shoes. . . 
this challenge is meant to get you/keep you moving! 
Don't worry, I have designed it for every level of fitness. 

Why a challenge? 
Everyone needs a little push. 
Here it is! 
Whether you haven't exercised in years or you are training for a marathon, this challenge will encourage you to kick it up a notch. 

You have Monday through Friday to complete the challenge.
 If you are a beginner, be sure to check with your Doctor first. 
This challenge is not meant, in any way, to supersede any regular training you are doing. 

  • Walk 1 Kilometer each day, totaling 5 km by the end of the week. Then you can say you walked a 5K!
  •  Walk all 5 days.
  • *If you don't know how to track your distance, ask me for some suggestions.

  • At the beginning of the week walk 5km, could be spread over 1, 2 or 3 days. 
  • Track how long it takes you to complete the entire 5km. 
  • On Thur and/or Fri walk 5km again and beat your time, maybe consider jogging for a few seconds each minute.
  •  Walk all 5 days.
  • *If you don't know how to track your distance, ask me for some suggestions.

Beginning Runners: What is your best 5km time? 
  • If you are not able to complete 5km yet, work your way up gradually. 
  • Be sure to not increase your distance more than 10% from last week. 
  • Make it your goal to be able to run 5km in one session. Show me your time so we can celebrate! Doesn't even need to be this week.
  • If 5km is where you are at, give me your best time. Did you beat my time below? 

My 5km time last week. Beat it!
Runners: Beat your 5K time!
  • Note your 5km time in one of your beginning of the week runs.
  • Beat that time in one of your end of the week runs.
Comment, post, message me how you are doing throughout the week. I can't wait to hear all the great success on Friday!

You In?
