    2019 Keep Moving Challenge 23rd Dec 18 at 11:48 AM
    No specific target again this year, just set your own.

    Whether you will be walking, running, cycling or swimming I hope that you will use this thread to keep us updated on your progress.

    It is good to have a target to aim for but don't over stretch yourself so much that you either get disappointed in your own progress or find that you have too much to make up after coming back from a holiday or extra work having cut back your miles.

    I say miles simply because I am old and still measure that way but your own personal challenge could be anything from miles, kilometers, laps, steps etc.

    It looks like I may be going in for an operation at some point in 2019 so I need to err on the safe side with the target I am going to set myself, I could miss as much as 2 full months.

    After a really good 2018 walking for me and surpassing my target with ease, I am going to set myself 3666 miles to get in 2019 and reserve the right to adjust that depending on when I need to go for the operation.

    Hi Wizard, I'd like to join you! I've signed up to a challenge to do 1000 miles in 2019. I also signed up in 2018, and whilst I managed this using my total step count (fitbit), my intention for 2019 is to achieve the 1000 miles using only DELIBERATE mileage (such as walking to work / going for a run) and excluding the pottering around the house that a pedometer such as a fitbit picks up.

    I will hopefully aim for 2019 miles too, I'm also doing London marathon so probably should think about doing some sort of training for it.

    Iím going to aim to walk up more hills! I live in a town on the side of a valley, so plenty of hills, but Iíve mainly walked on the flat or gently rising land this year. Next year my walks are going to include at least 3 steep hills a week and I want to do at least 1750 miles.

    I'm going to go for a reserved 1000 miles for the year - I've been out injured running for nearly a year now with no signs of improvement, so I'll be happy to get to a non-injured stage for starters and see how I get on mileage wise!

    Hi

    Need to get fitter, so joining up. I was going to aim to walk 2019 miles but that is soooo unrealistic. Now aiming for 1000 miles.

    It's good to set a target that you know you can achieve so that you won't get disappointed but it's also good to set one that might just push you that little bit more and give you that extra boost when you get there

    I'm going to move more. I am so sedentary at my desk at work. I NEED to make sure I get up and walk around more. Even if it's just going to a bathroom on another floor.

    Room for a not so small one?

    I love walking but I don't do anywhere near enough of it I will set my target at 1000 miles and see how it goes I have a sedentary job but also have two allotments and plan on moving house in 2019 so there shouldn't be any reason why I shouldn't achieve that

    Being a sadsack, I've just counted up the mileage that my phone recorded in the last 12 months and it came up at 717 so a target of 1000 miles is perfectly achievable

    Good luck everyone!

    Hi all. I'd like to join you on this challenge. I do like walking, and, like CarolynRach, I think I just need to move more generally. Can I set a weekly target to start with?
