Fitness challenges have shown to be an effective way to get people motivated to exercise. There are tons of them out on the interwebs ranging from squat challenges to healthy eating challenges. A couple of months ago, I completed the Blue Line Tactical Fitness 100 Burpees in 100 Days challenge. I wrote an article about it in the latest issue of Oklahoma Sports and Fitness Magazine which can be seen here.
Since completing the challenge, I found myself sort of slacking here and there and I really needed something new to motivate me to do something everyday. I also wanted to find a challenge that anyone can do. You see, there a lot of challenges out there that are truly enjoyable, but they are limited to certain demographics. For example, plank challenges and squat challenges are fun, but if you have bad knees or a bad back then they become nearly impossible to do.
As a result, I came up with the 100 Mile Challenge. The challenge is to complete one mile every day for a hundred days. It doesn’t matter how you do your mile or the time in which it was completed. It only matters that you do a single mile every day for a hundred days. It can be done on a treadmill, bike, elliptical, wheelchair or whatever! (I’m pretty sure if you wanted to do burpees for a mile, you could do that)
The best part about it is the simplicity of the challenge. If you aren’t walking or doing something active daily now, then this just might be the motivation needed to get moving. If you are an avid runner or walker and are already doing a mile per day, try to make your mile faster. Just have fun with it!
