100 Day Fitness Challenge 2013

100 day challenge preferred logoMany of you will remember that a year ago I came up with the idea of the 100 Day Fitness Challenge and made it a charity fund raising event. It was great fun, lead to me launching the 100 Day Health & Fitness Challenge product and generally pushed me into a whole area of new skills and activities I’d never done before.

My own personal 100 Day Challenge was to do 100 burpees for 100 days and this I did and told you how it felt to be 10,000 burpees down by the end of it – HERE.

This year I need a new challenge. I did consider doing burpees again, after all they are quick to get through, incredibly efficient in terms of changing your shape quickly and improving your fitness. But I thought “nah, because I’ve done them before I won’t enjoy it as much, won’t feel challenged and will probably give up on them”. I reckon that when you talk about giving up before you’ve even started then you’re never going to make that desire come true.

So I wanted something I could do every day, for 100 days that would challenge me, but not ruin me. It was also not to take over my life and I was going to have to be able to do it anywhere in case I found myself away from home during the 100 days.

So, I’ve come up with it.

I am going to run at least 5km every day for 100 days. I won’t miss a day and then do 10km the next. Every day at least 5km.

Now for some of you this is a doddle. But not for me. I am not a natural runner. I am merely ‘a plodder’ and I am an anti-social one at that as I don’t like to chat as I go along, I much prefer my own thoughts. In fact I don’t ‘do‘ running and I have said to many people this year that I have no interest in it. However that is the challenge, to get myself out there each day and tick the box. I like that kind of structure.

So if you see me from 23 September to 31 December plodding around Wokingham, give me a shout, wave or toot! It will keep me going and be all for the good of the charity challenge.
