Post subject:  The Running Thread

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!

finally, a place for RMers to discuss working out

Post subject:  Re: The running/exercise streak thread

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.

What we need is a p90x thread.

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

Author:  narr [ Sat January 04, 2014 5:45 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: The running/exercise streak thread

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

i dont think they see the benefit of exercise, so no, probably not.

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

Post subject:  Re: The running/exercise streak thread

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.
