March Challenge - 30 Miles in 30 Days

I am so excited to tell you guys about this 30 Miles in 30 Day Challenge I am starting on March 1! I found the idea on Pinterest the other day and have modified it a little bit and invited some close friends to join me for support.
 
You can find the original idea here from Shape Magazine. They actually have a suggested training schedule with how you could accomplish this goal too, if it just seems too overwhelming for you. IT'S TOTALLY DOABLE!
 
I have successfully talked my girl Manda into doing this with me so we can hold each other accountable. She is such a sweet friend and even though we don't live in the same city, she is one of those people who can really lift you up when you need support. And I knew she had some specific fitness goals for the summer so she immediately popped in my head when I was trying to think of a buddy.
 
Here are the details:
30 Miles in 30 Days
 
Start Tomorrow, Friday March 1 goes through Sunday March 31 (technically you get an extra day for makeup miles haha)
 
Keep a log somehow of how many miles you did on what days. I will be keeping mine on my Notes app on my iPhone, but do what works for you.
 
Find a buddy to hold you accountable - and it can be either me or Manda if you need it to be - we want other ladies to join the challenge and reach their goals!
 
We decided the miles can be logged by any of the following: walking, jogging, running, elliptical or biking (stationary or real bicycle). Running is not for everyone, so we want to make it someone that anyone can easily get involved in! Walking is still great exercise.
 
The purpose of the challenge is to get your actively motivated towards reaching your higher fitness goals! Make sure you sit down before you start and physically write out goals for yourself. I'm a big believer that writing things down helps to make them more "real" for us. I have struggled very much in my life the past couple months with self control. March is going to be the time that I regain the self control that I have lost. I will be posting at least weekly updates here and on Instagram {nikkib918} & Twitter on my personal challenge results to keep everyone updated. We can do this!
 
Pinterest is always a good source of motivational pictures, quotes or fitness ideas. You can follow me here on Pinterest. If you need personal motivation, you can contact us too! I know two specific blog friends: Taylor & Nikki who are PERFECT at giving you REAL TALK and a swift kick in the ass if you need it! They are both very knowledgeable about healthy workouts & goals and they have helped me very much.I am excited about this for myself and if it can help motivate even one other person then mission accomplished.
 
 
So starting tomorrow - it's ON!
30 miles in 30 days HERE WE COME!

I love this idea! You should link it up with my Fitness Friday link up. I think lots of women would find this accomplish-able.

Alisa Marie said...

Seriously considering doing this! Even if it's not running, I'm atleast going to make an effort to make it to the gym atleast 3 times a week... There I said it out loud, let's see if I can make it happen!

Lins - Domesticated Working Woman said...

Thanks for linking this up gf! I'm so excited we met on Instagram and can encourage/motivate each other now.

Nicole said...

Good luck girl! 30 miles in 30 days does seem overwhelming to me. Mostly because I am not a runner.

ty said...

I'm in it with you, even if I have a few days to make up :)

Nikki said...

LOVE this! If I can do anything lemme know!

Janna Renee said...

That's a great idea! I have been running about 36 miles/month, but I fell off last week. Jillian Michaels is great, but I don't see the results like I do with running!
