    Almost a week in, and I’m behind pace. Apparently, my bosses think they pay me to drive a truck, for some reason.

    I think you're on to something. The more success you have at meeting the challenges, the more likely you are to get one that's unreasonable. I haven't missed two months in a row since the challenges started, but I don't think there is any way I'll make my June challenge which is 256.5 miles. Really?!? 8.55 miles per day?!? I'd have to quit work and just run/walk all day.
    I agree. In February, I was supposed to go 80.9 miles. I got the flu and was down for several days so I ended up not completing the challenge. This month, my challenge is to go 72.9 miles. So because I failed in February, my goal is less this month.

    That's really rather horrible, isn't it? I would hate that if that was true. I mean that it's one thing to challenge people to continue striving to improve, but everyone reaches a limit or needs a break.

    I’ll trade challenges with you. Mine is 341 miles at 11.5 miles per day.
    Yikes! If your challenge is 11.5 miles per day, then your activity history must suggest you can and have done that, to which I say WOW! I'm an every day runner, but you must be a marathoner! If you can get 341 miles, that would be awesome. Of course, it also means you'll get a challenge of 400 miles for July.

    Well maybe it will work that way. I didn't make my May goal, I won't make my June goal, and since I'm traveling a big chunk of July, I probably won't make that either. So my August goal should be really easy!

    If only. I haven't made one since December, just missed most months, and I'm still getting challenging challenges.

    Move your butt more. Especially with it now being spring there is not much reason to spend your free days at home. Unless you’re into Netflix and Chill like me. Then it’s okay

    It'd be hard to move more. I average 1:15/day or workouts; I've missed 9 days this year, mostly because of travel, when I am walking a lot anyway. If I did any more I'd be sick.

    I prefer to think that Apple is really, really good at just barely over-estimating my activity level every month.

    I’m a letter carrier for USPS, and walk 10-15 miles on the days I work which is anywhere from 6-9 days before I have a day off. On some days I have made it to 30k steps (before work and after work steps).

    I don’t select any workout. I just let the watch pick up my steps and heart rate.

    . I told myself yesterday to start a workout for when I’m walking. I walk at work from 10:30am-6pm. The amount of sitting I do is equal to 45 minutes to an hour. At home I’m chasing behind my kids and cleaning up, so by the end of the day I have a total of 15k-30k steps.

    I may or may not make it this month. I still need 565 workout hours to get the award but I’ve noticed that because I want to get the award I’m working out on days I should probably be resting because or aches and pains. I really wish there was a mulligan option. Remove two days from the equation and recalculate the progress needed.

    Today is day 19 and I’m only at 208.9 miles out of 341. That means I will have to walk or run 12 miles every day this month. I have 2 more off days this month, so that will be hard to achieve.

    It seems as though you're close!!! To make the goal, you needed to burn about 1294 calories a day. If my calculations are correct, if you burned 1294 calories a day, by the end of the day today, you would have burned a total of 27174. The day's not over, and ou're really not that far off!

    Thanks for the encouragement Annie and I’ll keep pushing as much down the gym as I can (and few extra dog walks are also on the cards!).

    My only fear is that next month’s challenge will be even worse and I won’t be able to complete as we’re off on holiday.

    It’s silly how much effort we all put in to achieve these badges. I even completed my yoga challenge today and I’ve never attempted it before.

    It’s all good fun though.

    I completely understand, and even if we don't make the goal, we still tried, we still put the effort in! If you mow your own grass don't forget to start a workout! That should count unless you're on a riding mower!

    Lol, that’s a good suggestion and I’ll give it a try!
    It’s currently 8pm here in the uk and I’ve achieved 1668 calories so it’s been a good day!
