I didn't make my goal last month:( Once school started, working out STOPPED. But that's going to change! I THINK I'm getting a routine down, so I can workout again (SOMEHOW)!

Today I did Walk Slim 3 Fast Miles and it felt GREAT! I think I'll aim for 65 miles this month!

Okay - I'm still only going to count the miles I run this month, and not my total distance including walking warm-up and cool-down, so...

50 Brave, but I'll give it a go :)

HEATHER! A mile is a MILE no matter how you get there, every step is a step towards healthier days! If I was you, I'd take 'em and be proud!!

OK ~ 30 days, less 5 Sundays, so I will try and do 25 5K's which is 77.5 miles

Today after a short day at work I did 4 miles

4/77.5 miles

65 minutes

I hope you all surpass your goals!

OK, I'm going to try and actually remember to *post* about this all month for a change. I start off with great intentions, don't post past the first few days and then can never remember what I've done...

So, 30 day month and I want to average 4 miles per day, making 120 miles.

Yesterday: 5 miles done - 2 mile loop with friend, 2 x 1.5 mile walks later in the day. 5/120. A very good day. :)

Today: 4 1/2 miles done = 9.5/120.

I'm cutting my goal from 100 to 75 this month because I'm going to take it easy the next week or two. I may do more than that, especially if the weather starts cooling off, but I have no idea. Coming down from my first half marathon, which I ran today -- woohoo!!

congrats to the half marathoners here! i'm registered for a 12K at the end of october, but not sure if i'll be ready by then... i need to start pushing myself more when i run, it's honestly just been leisurely jogs for the past month or two.

Gary~when you and Angie walk to Starbucks, do you stop for breakfast?

Hey ALLISON ~ I usually wait outside with the mutts, Angie has all MY money anyway ;) She always gets a scone with her tea, I just get a coffee of the day. Angie did say that we have those sandwiches there though.

GREAT JOB GALS!

0/20 (walk). I may be amending this to be 10 miles total rather than 20. We walk with our dogs and our older dog isn't getting along too well--too many trips and falls, yet he gets terribly depressed if we walk without him, so instead we just decrease the distance.

ALLISON I sure understand about the dogs. Mine are the same age but one hurt her leg jumping in to my truck about a year and a half ago, we have to be real careful to not over do her with too many miles in a week...but boy just try to hold her back...not gonna happen!

Good luck...sometimes I have to run them out to the back yard with a "cookie" while Angie sneaks out the front for a run....they always figure it out!

I somehow got it together today after an hour water aerobics. Took my 3 year old out for a stroller run - haven't done that in ages! It was way harder pushing a jogging stroller than just running alone.

I tried mapmyrun.com but since my sub is new, I don't think I got the right distance, so I might change it later.

2.4 miles total with 1.1 running. I think this is way off but good enough to put down now before I forget.

2.02 miles today which included a 1.4 miles run in 17 minutes - not too shabby. I hurt my back last week I guess doing water aerobics? How dumb, it's low impact and that's where I get hurt. So doing lots of stretching and only running when I feel ok. Today the run was alright but afterwards was not so hot.

Tomorrow is my first day since last Thursday where I don't have to run back and forth all day. Going to try to do a long walk tomorrow AM to make up some of the miles I am missing!
