Are you ready for week 6 of the Get Healthy, Stay Healthy Challenge?
I actually had this challenge listed for week 7, but we’re going to move it up a little since it’s getting harder and harder for me to run. Haha!
Anyway, this week’s challenge is run one mile (outside or on the treadmill—whichever you prefer). If you’re an avid runner, try to run that mile as fast as you can! If you’re a beginner runner, do you best to minimize your number of walking breaks. Just complete one mile as fast as you can! For even more of a challenge, run one mile at the beginning of the week and then try to beat your time later in the week. (We’ll see how my first mile goes, but my plan is to try to beat my time later in the week.)
