Default 1000 miles in 2013

Hi Everyone,

I joined and finished a 1000 mile challenge for the year 2012. I am challenging myself once again to walk 500 miles and do Elliptical for 5000 minutes this year.

I don't care how you accumulate your miles, just join me Let's get moving!!

Remember to reach 1,000 all we need is to average little less than 2.75 miles a day. Very doable!

I'd like to give it a try. I walk/run 10-12 miles a week, but I wanna try to walk a couple miles on days I don't run. If I add 7-8 miles a week, that'd get me to 1000. Mostly I sit on the couch on winter days I don't run. In summer I sometimes bike on 'off' days. But having this goal will get me out there walking I am sure. BTW, roughly how far is 10,000 steps?

I haven't forgotten this-- just still sick with this lousy cold. No energy, no voice, lots of cough and leg aches... I will get started though and then have to do some making up.

This will certainly be a challenge. I did want to clock up 500 miles as one of my goals for the year but challenging myself too 1,000 sounds pretty amazing too. I need to start getting back into walking soon. During the summer I was walking 5 miles a day for a good few weeks. Now I'm back at college and the evenings are dark and dull, I stopped and use my stepper at home. I read somewhere that 2000 steps would be the same as one mile which I would do when I'm using it. I've exams starting tomorrow for a week and a half. Then I've two weeks off where I want to kick start these 1,000 miles outside as well as what I get with the stepper. Can't wait for the long evenings to return. Sum, I watched the 2012 thread and you are such an inspiration! Good luck everyone this year clocking up the 1,000 miles.

Count me in!

I am pretty old (57) but started jogging last spring. I can run 2 or 3 miles at a time, but I should not do it every day, so I try to ride my bike on the days I don't run.

It's a challenge for me to run 30 miles a month because I teach school and I'm in two orchestras and a bluegrass group, so lots of evenings are taken up with practice or performance. But if I combine the running miles with some biking miles, maybe I can do this.

This was from one of EZ's first post on his original thread for 2012. Just about anything that gets you and moving counts!


"and biking and hiking and wheel-chairing and swimming and surfing and mountain climbing and......and....and....."
