    Morning all, can't believe it's the 1st of July!!! Who's up for the exercise challenge?

    I pledge to run 3x a week and to get out on my bike 1x a week (or go walking), anything else is a bonus.

    Me!

    Aqua class twice a week, swimming once a week and 2 miles of walking every week day.

    Not sure if I'm going to the baths tonight though, as I have sciatica so not sure what to do :cry:

    Morning
    A beautiful July morning here in Wirral.:character00238:
    I am up for the challenge: Will carry on at the gym - 2 more weeks on my complimentary gym pass also going to walk or cycle a few nights - won't be able to complete the whole month as we go on holiday to the beautiful island of Zakynthos on 27th July but will try really hard until then.:cool:

    My Challenge for July? To get my 5k run to 30 mins! At present I can do it in 32.5 on the treadmill which is a reasonable time but would love to hit the 30 min mark. Plan to run at the Queen Mothers Reservoir 5k in two weeks time, not too sure I will be at 30 mins then but under 35 on run outside would be good.

    Hi all I am going to join too but I am having to start smaller i'm afraid. I will walk for 30mins every week day (during my lunch break) and for 60 mins intense walking at weekend (60mins Saturday and 60mins Sunday). I am also planning to do 100 reps of free weights at home every day to combat bingo wings and 50 tummy crunchs per night.

    AIM: play golf once a week.

    ...and if i don't managed golf i will try do 2 sessions at the driving range.

    ...for my weight 18 holes of golf (3.5hours) burns around 2400 calories!!! GREAT OR WHAT? :D

    may throw the odd swim in here and there, but no promises!!!

    OK, mine is 2 gym sessions, 1 swim and 1 walk (2 miles at lunchtime, I normally get a lunchbreak on a Friday & also work in an office near a lake on Fridays so there's no excuse!)

    Well done Linda!

    I'm on track - went for a walk last night, and gym night before. Will swim tonight, then do one gym session at some point over the weekend.
