Are you playing our #getout in May Challenge? Teresa D. was the inspiration for our challenge. I just loved seeing her Strava posts with picture of birds and ponds from her walks and runs with her dog Sage. After being cooped up because we had to #stayhome in April getting outside in May felt natural.
You might wonder why we have regular challenges at the gym. Perhaps just exercising is challenging enough?!?
Our challenges are meant to help us practice and establish healthy lifestyle habits. Fitness is more than just doing the workout of the day. Fitness is how we eat, how we drink, how we handle stress, how we handle difficult situations, it's the strength of our social relationships, it's how much sleep we get, it's how we spend our "leisure" time, basically it's everything we do when we're not exercising.
For some of us, the Covid-19 pandemic has created a bounty of leisure time. For others, it has completely eradicated leisure time.
We want to help you have some fun in May with whatever leisure time you have. Perhaps it's only 10 mins at the end of a long work-at=home day. You can still #getout and take a walk in the fresh air. I bet you can find a nest or explore a neighborhood trail in 10 mins from your front door.
Maybe you have plans to #getout and go camping this weekend. Well, you have plenty of opportunities to find all of the plants and animals on our list.
Remember, we want you to record our adventures in Strava. We're using this because at the end of May you will be pleasantly surprised at all the miles you've covered. One healthy lifestyle practice we love is celebrating wins, or bright spots. Imagine how good you'll feel at the end of May when you have a photographic and mapped record of all your outdoor adventures.
So let's get on Strava and #getout and have some fun!
