# Disney Dragons August 2024 Exercise Challenge

#### PollyannaMom

##### I was a click-clack champ!!

Welcome to the August 2024 exercise thread!
This month we'll be learning about the various Dragons in Disney movies while while we post our exercise minutes.
(I'll be starting that part next week, though, as I have a big event going on this weekend.)

If you’re returning, we’re excited to have you back! If you’re new, welcome to the team! Here’s how it works:

Each person chooses a time goal, and posts minutes towards that goal as they exercise. (You can post daily or just catch up when you can.) You decide what movement counts towards your goal - which can be a nice round total for the month, a specific number that means something to you, or a calculation based on a target number of minutes per day.

Since August has 31 days, here are some common conversions:

15 minutes/day = 465
20 minutes/day = 620
30 minutes/day = 930
45 minutes/day = 1395
1 hour/day = 1860

One of the special motivations of our Disney exercise challenge is color changing! Page one will be updated with individual and team color changes as we make more and more progress.

10% - Blue
25% - Orange
50% - Purple
75% - Pink
90% - Red
100% - Green

We’re officially starting this challenge on August 1st, but if you don’t find this thread until later in the month, you’re still welcome to join!! Just post your goal and I’ll add you to the list. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions, and to check out old threads to see what’s been going on.

I thought I was too ashamed of my past failures to show my face around here but dragons???? I can't say no to dragons. I'm in for 700. **gulp**

In for 1200. It amazes me how folks keep coming up with new thread ideas. I have been reading books that include dragons recently, so this month should be fun! Thanks, PollyannaMom!

Raya, don’t be ashamed! It’s so good to see you back!

Love dragons and this is good motivation - 930

I’m in for 400 here we go!

I am wildly excited for this theme!!!! Wow, PollyannaMom, what a great idea!

I am going to start a new training program for running and really hope to be more consistent with strength training, so I will bump up to 2200 this time.

You have been missed!!!! It is sooooo good to have you back. I want to say please don't ever feel like you can't be here, but I also don't want to negate your feelings. Just know that we are here to cheer you on no matter how far or close you get to your goal, and we are always happy to see your posts!

I'll go for 760 again. My husband will be out of town for a week leaving me to solo parent, so hopefully I'll still be able to find the time!

Chasing kids is very much my cardio!

Starting off with 60 for a concert last night (not Imagine Dragons, though).

I am back. I am in for 930 minutes. Jeff and I are training for our cruise. We are planning on taking the stairs instead of waiting for the elevator. We started on Tuesday this week going to the center of town (it is a lake with the city outdoor pool, huge playground, library and police station) on lunch to walk the stairs. We started with 4 times and each day we have added 2 more. Then after work I have been getting on the treadmill for 45 minutes. During the week, Thursday will be my off day as I am in the office this day.

I tacked a few days of tourist time on to a work trip. I expected to have 8 miles a day of walking like I do at Disney, but it turns out 112F/41'C and no Haunted Mansion isn't motivating at all.

8/3 - 37 minutes
8/4 - 25 minutes

102/700 - 14%
