Some of you will remember that four years ago I came up with the 100 Day Fitness Challenge. The end of the year charity event that sees you through to the best end of the year you could imagine, rather than a mediocre, frumpy one.
Well we’re at it again. On Wednesday this week we started our 2015 100 Day Fitness Challenge and this year our challenge is to do 30 minutes of exercise every day for 100 days.
I’m three days in and so far on target!
I really like 100 day ‘things’.
- It pushes you out of your comfort zone more than a 21 or 30 day challenge.
- It definitely makes you a more organised and decisive person when you know you need to fit something in each day, you plan to make it happen.
- The impact is longer lasting. I know that sounds obvious, but most of us can organise our lives in such as way that 21 days is manageable before reverting to old behaviours. 100 days becomes much more habit forming and rewarding.
- You can start a 100 day ‘thing’ at any time. Doing a 3 month challenge or 8 week programme usually pushes people to start on a Monday or the beginning of a month. 100 day tasks can be started whenever you like all you need is this handy device to work out your own 100 day target date.
My personal target this year is to do three Fit Camp sessions a week and on days that I don’t I’ll either run 5km or walk 20 minutes and do 100 burpees in my garden.
I’m planning on feeling pretty brilliant by the end of the year!
If you want to join in you can join us in our facebook group and log your daily activity.
Or you can join us on Sunday mornings at Bearwood Recreation Ground, Winnersh at 9am for our Sunday Wake Up! session. From now until the end of the year all monies raised go to charity and a suggested amount per session is £6 per person.
We’ve helped children in schools in Kenya with feeding programmes, sports opportunities and career development courses over the years. This year will be no different!
Set yourself a target and go for it!
What have you got to lose?!
