Keep going in December- How are you doing?

Keep going in December- How are you doing?

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.

Well I am doing an ISACS h/m training programme with 4 runs a week and I WILL be doing them even the one scheduled for Christmas day


I really have got the but between my teeth now and don’t want to lose momentum. So when I had to to turn back last Friday because of ice, I decided to sign up to the local Pure Gym to use the treadmill when it’s not safe outside.

Since then, I’ve managed all my 3 runs outside (which is great, much rather be outside) and simply see the membership as an insurance policy.

Financially, I’m struggling but see the £20 a month membership fee as the best investment for my wellbeing right now.


I am going to try to stick to two runs a week from now onwards. Unfortunately I've been struck down with bugs and lack of motivation with the horrendous weather on my days off, combined with family commitments. Consequently it's been over a week since my last run - runs this month have been sporadic and I need to change that!

I want to keep this fitness level up before I lose it 😮
