September Fitness Challenge: Half Marathon Walk

Need to keep my fitbit charged for this month's challenge!

Need to keep my fitbit charged for this month’s challenge!

Due to a lot of travel and general running around this month, I decided on something completely different for my monthly fitness challenge – walking a half marathon.

That’s 13.1 miles baby! I’m using September’s 4+ weeks to extend my bipedal travels.

Given all that’s going on this month, walking was the perfect choice. Walking relaxes me. I simply download some awesome podcasts or a great audio book on my iPhone, strap on my walking shoes and head out. For some reason, when I walk the spoken word, rather than music, keeps me going for hours. Who ends a walk mid-chapter?

So What’s My Plan?
I found a nifty little site with a 14-week training program to walk a half marathon. I’m making some modifications to account for my nutty schedule. Before my trip to Texas, I walked between 4-6 miles a day, occasionally getting up to 8 miles. So a month doubling that distance is very doable.
