    Hi all,
    those who have been around a while, might have seen the other thread...
    well becuase i was very ill with Viral Meningits over the pretty much whole of May i was unable to start and continue with my challenge... so im going to do it in June instead..

    all are welcome to join.. and have a go...

    here is a copy of the first post in the other thread... so you all know why and what to do!

    Hello all!!!

    i am going to start a challenge for myself (and anyone else who wants to join in too!)

    i am going to do 100 miles (or 160km) jogging on the wii fit (in the section "free jogging"), jogging on the treadmil or walking..

    this inspiration has come from my husband, who is doing a Cycle ride on the 29th May from oxford to cambridge (approx 100miles) on his own in aid of the brittish heart foundation.. he is going to be doing this in a day....
    im thinking my challenge can be over a month. (as there is no way i could do it in a day!!!)

    would anyone like to Join me???

    i am hoping to average 5kms a day (and make up on some days the ones i am unable to do..)

    Everyone welcome!!!

    Hiya i would like to join in this challenge but how does it work..?

    Can you wear a pedometer all day and then record your mileage or does the miles have to be say from one wii fit jogging session etc..how do you calculate your jogging miles from the wii fit is the total accurate on it?
    sorry for all the Q's LOL

    its ok, im doing it from sessions of workouts, rather than walking in my everyday life.

    i am going to be using the treadmill at work, and wii fit and the wii active (i think i can use that....) i dont think the fit is overly accurate, but i wont be using that as much as the others...
    because all of these work in km rather than miles, thats why ive worked itout to be 160km's!

    hope this has helped.

    If I were to exercise once a day throughout June, I would jog just over 5k a day. I am determined not to leave it all until the last week (like the Wii fit challenge I did last month!) Looking forward to the challenge..it should help the weight drop off..if it doesn’t kill me first!

    Just did 20 minutes.. 3.32 miles. I am enjoying this challenge! I am not sure how jogging on the spot on the Wii fit compares to real jogging. I thought I was going to die when I did the 5K run for cancer 2 years ago! It gets my heart rate up and makes me sweat it must be doing something good eh?

    Went for a run in a forest today- it was beautiful. Not sure the distance but know from my time it was definatly over 10km, maybe as much as 12k, so I'll say 6.5 miles (10ishk)as a guestimate.
