Virtual challenges have become a popular way for women to stay motivated and active, especially during the pandemic when in-person races and events have been cancelled or postponed. These challenges offer a variety of themes, distances, and goals, making them a great way for women to set and achieve fitness goals from the comfort of their own home. However, with so many virtual challenges available, it can be challenging to choose the right one for you. In this article, we’ll share some tips on how to choose the right virtual challenge, specifically from a female perspective.
Consider Your Fitness Level and Goals
The first step in choosing the right virtual challenge for you is to consider your fitness level and goals. Virtual challenges come in a variety of distances, from 5k upwards, and can be tailored to different fitness levels. If you are a beginner or just getting back into fitness, you may want to start with a shorter distance, such as a 5k or 10k. If you are more experienced, you may want to challenge yourself with a longer distance, such as a half-marathon or marathon.
When choosing a virtual challenge, it’s also essential to consider your fitness goals. Do you want to increase your endurance, speed, or strength? Do you want to lose weight, build muscle, or reduce stress? Different virtual challenges can cater to different goals, so be sure to choose one that aligns with your specific fitness objectives.
At RUNMUMS, we offer a range of virtual challenges that are designed for women and feature beautifully designed medals. Our virtual challenges also feature variable distances, so you can choose the distance that works best for you. For example, our Love of the Seasons Spring Challenge, Summer Challenge, Autumn Challenge, and Winter Challenge all offer different distances and themes to cater to different fitness levels and goals.
Choose a Theme That Motivates You
One of the advantages of virtual challenges is that they often have a theme or goal that can make them more interesting and motivating. Some virtual challenges are seasonal, such as our Love of the Seasons challenges, while others are holiday-themed, such as our Mother’s Day Challenge.
When choosing a virtual challenge, consider a theme that motivates you. For example, if you love springtime and the outdoors, our Love of the Seasons Spring Challenge may be perfect for you. If you want to celebrate Mother’s Day and honor the special women in your life, our Mother’s Day Challenge is a great choice. Choosing a theme that resonates with you can help make the virtual challenge more meaningful and enjoyable.
Look for Community and Accountability
Virtual challenges can also offer a sense of community and accountability. When participating in a virtual challenge, you can connect with other participants through social media or online forums, share your progress, and provide support and encouragement to one another.
At RUNMUMS, we have a private Facebook group for our virtual challenge participants, where they can connect with other women, share their progress, and ask questions. Having a supportive community can help keep you motivated.
