How have you done this week and what are your plans for next week?

How have you done this week and what are your plans for next week?

How have you done for the first week in December? Did you hit your targets? What are you plans for the next week?

A December challenge for all the forums, whatever stage you are at.

Have you got a plan to keep your fitness levels up over December this year. For some it is the cold, dark and rain that keeps us in doors, for some it is too many late nights and feeling shattered the next day. Or Is it the chance to have some little treats and not worry too much about the Waistline that gets you out the door, or do you need a little Me time when the house is full. This is time of year there are so many reason to stay in and still so many reasons to go out.

So the challenge is set your self a plan that works for and try to stick to it.

Today write you plan down and post it in here. You know once it is in writing it matters 😀

( make the plan achievable for you, don’t stretch your self too much and take into consideration everything that is going on)

It could be run 2-3 times a week, make sure I go out at least once a week, run for 3km, that sort of thing.

Then post how you did. I will put a new post up for the weeks.

4th to the 10th December

11th to the 17th December

18th to the 24th December

25th to 31st December.

Let’s all keep our fitness levels up through December and go into the New Year knowing we are all still motivated

If your injured or ill take care of yourself and only do what you can, just being mindful of what your body needs is a great thing for your general well being and obviously you can join this challenge any time so even if you come to the site the last week of December you are still welcome.

Had a few Christmas parties this week and late nights at work so hard to fit in all my training, I did manage to go to my race walking coaching session tonight and hopefully I will do Parkrun on Saturday, that is the plan.


I've been running, exercising at home to my yoga dvd. Not managed to fit in a JM dvd though, naughty me! My Christmas party is Saturday night but I'm not having too much food as I have a 10k race the following morning.

Training for a spring half marathon will keep me busy over Christmas and the new year.


Good luck with your 10k!!!


I plan to graduate tomorrow and then consolidate every other day taking me into the New Year where I'm hoping the magic of midnight will cement this habit for life!


I plan to try at least one couch to 5k+ podcast this week as I progress week 2 of bridge to 10k... also want to get back to my boxercise session- missed it last week due to pure exhaustion and pain on my chest x


Completrd W5 yessterday. Start W6 on 16 Dec.
