I'm hoping to run a 10k leg in an upcoming marathon so I really want to make my goal realistic and not push my mileage too high too fast.

Thanks for hosting!
All you can do is what you can do. Being realistic when it comes to exercise is the smart and safe way. There is pushing yourself and then there is overdoing it. There have been months when I could do 2000+ and months when I am lucky to get 1000. It is important to be flexible and listen to your body. Some months are big numbers and some months are smaller numbers, both are good!

Everyone is awesome for having goals that are intentional and achievable! Even if it seems like a low #, either compared to what we were able to do before an injury or compared to someone else, the fact that we are getting up and doing something healthy for our bodies is huge. Every little bit counts and matters.

well said!

I wanted to also comment on how many people said there goals are small. I totally get where the sentiment is coming from, and there have definitely been times when I could have pushed myself harder, but if you set a realistic goal where you know you will have to work hard, but not overdo it, then that is the right goal for you. We can celebrate each other's successes no matter what the number.

I'm going to give this a whirl for the first time. No time like the present, right? I'll say 700... A good place to start. Maybe.

I am trying to start the month off strong, well actually I've been up since 2:45 thinking about work. When I knew I įouldn't turn my brain off and fall back to sleep after an hour and a half, I got up and got on the treadmill for 40 minutes.

I couldn't have put it better myself!

Starting off the month with a weight gain (sigh), but I did manage to get the butt out of bed and hit the elliptical at 5am . So let's start with 35 elliptical minutes and 10 for PT exercises. Thinking about a lunchtime walk, but I do have a 15 mile run planned for tomorrow. Still debating...

Hope I'm not too late; just had knee surgery two days ago.

So, if you don't mind, I'll just limp into March! LOL

Working on upper body strength while the knee heals, so let's say 600 for this month.

Today, have already done 20 minutes of stretching and strength training

20/600
