Exercise. Everyday. You set the minimum. Be honest.
Running. Swimming. Cycling. Walking. Weight training. Yoga. Anything.
***Anyone who completes a 365-day streak will get a free high-quality (probably Patagonia) T-shirt with a cool RM-related design. I'll extend this to March 1, 2015, for anyone who wants to join or has already ballsed up their streak and wants to restart.


turned2black: Running. 5-mile minimum.
oasisfan35: 25 minutes of resistance training or 2 miles of running
narr: 30 minutes of walking
ruddo: one hour of working out or 2 miles of running
sarge: 15km spin/mountain bike or 2.4km running or weights/core workout
verb_to_trust: Running. 3-mile minimum.
Rangi Guy: Running, work-out. 30 minutes.
red calzolaio: Go to gym.
SND: Bike or run.

10 miles in 67 minutes

Late run, but felt great. Low 40s with a stiff breeze. Good half-mile finishing kick. 34 out. 33 back. Great run.

Streak counter: 6

This is actually not a bad idea. Can you start low and adjust your minimum later on?

I would say absolutely. Making fitness a priority is something that must be fostered and you don’t want to set the bar too high to begin before having a chance to promote the habit. Plus, in modern society one thing you can’t buy, next to love anyway, is time; I’d say adjust your goals accordingly but keep the streak as the main concern.

For myself, I know my schedule gets awfully crunched so I’m going with twenty-five minutes of resistance training or two miles of running per day as my minimum. I didn’t get in to the house until after midnight last night so I’ll be starting today.

Nice job, t2b.

Thanks, of35. I added you to the OP. Happy exercising, friend. I'll help motivate you the best I can.

Narr, absolutely! Start low, then adjust. This is meant to be flexible and fun. As long as you're exercising everyday!

I've felt myself almost slipping back into a depression of sorts, so this will not be an 'exercise to get fit' thing for me, but more of a 'get out of the house so I don't go nuts' thing.

So sign me up for a minimum 30 minutes of outdoors walking every day.

I'll start tomorrow, because it's already pitch dark and since I just moved here, I don't really know the surroundings at all.

You guys don't see the benefit of having a separate thread to track how the participants are doing? Really?

Because the board will surely implode if there is one more thread which not everyone finds useful.

The other thread was people saying "hey so today I run/lifted X", this new one will be... pretty much the same?

This thread is for people who want to exercise for consecutive days in a row. And want some added motivation and accountability. While, yes, we could have done that in the work-out thread, this should make it easier for participants to track how everyone's doing.
