What would be a good fitness goal (other than 5K)?
I have a weight loss goal (about 30 more pounds) but I was thinking I might be more motivated if I also had a fitness goal. I would have liked to do something like a 5K, but I have bad knees and don't want to risk running. Can anyone think of another fitness goal I could aim for? TIA!

How about training to do military style pushups? Or maybe just set a goal to do 3 cardio sessions per week with 3 weight lifting sessions?

What about biking or swimming distance goals? Those are easier on the joints than running.

OP, can you not set a goal for speed walking a 5k? Some of the speed walkers walk faster than a lot of the runners.

You could try a century ride (that's biking 100 miles)

Depending on your area, you might also seem some kayak or canoe races.

You may want to try hiking in certain challenging areas.

what about a certain number of classes (i.e. zumba, cycle, etc) per week?

Oops--I forgot that I started this thread! Thanks for all the feedback, you guys. I definitely think it's a good idea to aim for a certain number of classes or pushups or something like that, but I really wanted something big and exciting. More like a "one-off," something that would give me a sense of accomplishment after doing it once. The bike and swim ideas are more like what I had in mind, but unfortunately I have no experience with biking or swimming.

I think I might go with Kitathena's idea of speed-walking. I've never done that either, though, and it looks kind of goofy to me!

My bf, some of my guy friends and I are thinking about forming a team for Tough Mudder! Lol, I have one bad knee but I think with training I should be fine. If not I will be commenting on this later on saying my knee is a mess again. It's very intense but I think I will be able to handle it. I will probably be the only girl on our team which motivates me even more. I know I will break down and cry like a baby when I finish bc it's very challenging. I think the traing alone will be great for me, finishing will just be the cherry on top.

Yes this is really a big goal but nothing is impossible with the proper workout and exercise with regularly once or twice in a day which will help to reduce and secondly proper low calorie diets which will help to loose weight.......
