Get Ready for the Summer Fitness Challenge
Your amazingly fit body awaits…
Do you have a desire to push yourself physically but lack the determination and motivation to stick to your fitness plan?
If you know you want a fit body then it’s time to approach fitness from a different angle. This summer I propose you try out the Summer Fitness Challenge.
What is the Summer Fitness Challenge?
I’m glad you asked. The Challenge is a summer-long plan to push yourself physically be setting a fun but BOLD goal. The Challenge isn’t about doing 30 minutes of cardio a day. Not at all!
It’s about setting a big hairy audacious fitness goal and then using the entire summer to achieve it.
Maybe you’ve always wanted to run a full or half marathon. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to participate in roller derby or try paddle boarding but were afraid to get started. Whatever it is that you’ve wanted to do, make this summer the one where you finally do it.
My personal goal is to finally run a 5k in under 38 minutes. (Yes, I am that slow.) My best time was right around the 38-minute mark over 16 years ago. I am spending the summer doing the Insanity workout 3 days a week and one 5k a week. By the end of August I want to be at 37 or less minutes for my 5k time.
You may not think that is a big hairy audacious goal but believe me it is. I will feel so accomplished if I can do it. I will take me being in the best shape of my life to hit my mark and that is what my goal really is – to be in awesome shape at 46!
What will you do this summer? Give it some thought and write me a comment. What do you want to commit to doing?
