The Wolves are already moving but it is not too late to get in on the action. The Healthy at Home team is challenging you to log 100 hours of physical activity before September 5 if you don't think you have time to hit that you can hit milestones alone the way. You will receive virtual postcards when you hit 14, 27, 56, 65, 81. Why those numbers? You’ll have to reach them to find out. At the end of summer, you’ll receive badges for all of your achievements!
We will be providing updates, encouragement and resources to help you with your challenge and you can connect and cheer on your fellow Thunderwolves.
This program is open to current students, incoming students, staff, faculty, and alumni from either Campus. All participants will be entered into a prize draw with the winner announced in August.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
- Sign up and accept the invitation to the Wolves on the Move Strava Group
- Log your activities into Strava either manually or by syncing your fitness tracker or smartwatch
- We track your progress and notify you when you hit milestones
- Get moving!
|Q: Do I need a Strava Account?|
A: Yes, in order to fully participate in the community aspect of Wolves on the Move, a Strava Account is necessary. You can create a free Strava Account here: https://www.strava.com/register/free.
Please note it is not necessary to purchase any of the subscriptions associated with Strava to participate in Wolves on the Move
|Q: Do I need to use my phone or a GPS Tracking Device?|
A: No! A GPS Tracker is not necessary to participate, as you can manually input your runs onto Strava using these instructions if you prefer to run without a GPS tracker or phone.
|Q: What kind of activities can I upload to Strava?|
If you are using the Strava mobile app to record an activity, you'll notice that the list of activity type options isn't a comprehensive list of all available activity types supported on Strava. At this time, the Strava mobile app cannot record indoor or stationary activities so activity types that aren't typically GPS-based are excluded from the list.
If you do not see the outdoor activity type you'd like to record, you can always record using one of the currently listed sport types and edit the activity type after uploading. Lastly, you can always upload a manual entry and select any sport types from the list of currently supported activity types.
Once any activity is uploaded or synced to Strava, you can edit the activity to change the sport type to any of the following options:
Please be aware that most of Strava's features are currently only available for our three core activity types, riding, running, and swimming.
