With the resounding success of the previous month’s challenge, I thought it would be a neat idea to take a month break from team-oriented goals, in exchange for personal ones. It is very easy to get yourself into a comfortable training schedule, and I personally have found that setting out to do something in particular can help push you to do more. For each individual, the end goal varies. Thus, the March Personal Challenge.

Ideally, what I would like to see happen is that each willing individual would set a goal that they would like to achieve for themselves. Be it to lose x amount of weight, run x distance, spend x amount of time on cardio, go out to dinner x amount of times, complete a registered road race, and so on. I want people to post their goals in the comments of this thread, and then each week post an update of where they are in achieving this goal. If possible, a little write-up talking about how you are doing would be cool, too! After the comments are made, I will update the post to illustrate the individuals’ progress that they are making.

So, I’ll start!

Jon’s Goal: Break the 200 lb barrier, and get into the 190’s. Additionally, I want to run 10 miles with a pace under 9 minutes per mile.

That is all! I am truly interested to see what people want to strive for this month. Let’s get it done!
