May Challenge

OK guys that's right this is Mike Fess (AATM's other intro guy) here to tell you all what our May challenge will be. I have been laid up lately because of surgery, but I am ready and willing to smash these goals! Are you?

100 for experienced runners
70 for I have a few months under my belt
40 for I can just get through a mile

Push up's(I will except strength training at the gym for this):
1000 push ups for everyone. People this is easily attainable. But you have to dedicate yourself to this.

If you do the strength training you must do at least 20 days at the gym.

Sit ups:
1000 for the month. These should be done everyday because it is a muscle area that can be worked everyday.

And for our Tri athletes:
20 days of laps
20 days of biking

And for extra credit:
Try and find some core exercises that work for you. Google and Runners world are your friend. They really helped me with my training.

So that's it. Now get out there and get moving. I expect to see some results people!

Addition April Challenge

In addition to the monthly challenge below I'd like to add that spring is rolling in and that means that many of the communities you live in or near will begin hosted local walking and running events. My added challenge to you is to register and participate in at least one event that will be held within the next 2-3 months. The distance of the event itself does not matter, only that you find one and commit. Once you sign up for one, email me or leave a comment here and I will list your name and event in a new list on the left hand side of this blog.

April Challenge!

It's TIME to get serious, Team Voicers!! If you really are serious about a race this year, make THIS the month that you are CONSISTENT and MAKE PROGRESS!

And it's spring in some parts of the country, so it might be time to get outdoors!

*** Rookies ***

Core: 200 crunches, 100 pushups
Strength: 8 days of weights/strength work
Feet: 20 miles or 8 hours of walking/jogging
Days: 15 days of exercise (minimum 15 minutes)

*** Pros ***

Core: 500 crunches, 250 pushups
Strength: 10 days of weights/strength work
Feet: 75 miles walk/run
Days: 20 days of exercise (minimum 30 minutes)

The purpose of the month-long challenge is to establish CONSISTENCY in your exercise program, and to start to build FEET TIME for stamina, strength and wear & tear.

These are very REACHABLE goals with a little commitment over a lot of days! Go for it!!
