Hiked up and back down a mountain today, and I am feeling it all over, LOL! I am so proud of myself though, and pleased. So today was 4.1 miles, so a total of 7.41 so far!

Oh my goodness Fair, what a workout!!

I added 1.7 miles today. I forgot rice for dinner so I walked to the store instead of drove. Not as convenient but I just counted it as my daily walk.

8/1 - 2 miles
8/2 - 3.5 miles
8/3 - 5 miles
8/4 - 4.5 miles

Fairandfree, what a wonderful hike! Mountain hiking is no joke; those 4.1 miles must have packed a punch with all the elevation.

pnkrckpixikat, nice job!

LovelyLeah, I love incorporating my exercise/walking into daily routines and chores. I feel like I've got multitasking superpowers when I'm able to kill two birds with one stones like you did tonight.

Aclai, I hope that you enjoyed your weekend out of town! Great that you got those miles in on Friday before you left.


I signed up for a 10k that started in the town next to my boyfriend's, and he was gracious enough to let me stay the night at his place even though he was at work. Getting to the race was so much more convenient than it otherwise would have been, but it was still almost a 3 mile walk between his house and the starting point. Totally exhausted tonight!

Total miles so far: 15

Nienna86 A 10k Yikes! I am barely getting used to my 5k walks. Go you! Except if you did a 10k it seems your numbers are off... 10k= 6.2 miles + 3 for the starting point walk = 9.2 for one of those days?

Today was a walk and I got in 3.33 mi making my total 13.23, Half way there! yay! maybe Ill aim for 52.4 or even 78.6 at this rate, but first I'll complete the 26.2

Keep it up everyone!

It really was more of a workout than I thought it was going to be, and I feel it everywhere today. I'm going to make sure I get up again today, but something less extreme, definitely!

Some of you are just trecking along fast!. When I saw the word Lazyman, I took this literally! I can honestly say that when it comes to exercising I am LAZY. I would rather give up food to lose weight than exercise. I still plan on finishing the monthly marathon. I tell myself if I can finish one this month perhaps I can finish two next month and up my walks to daily. Small changes...

Seaurchin No worries. That's the whole point of this. I think some on here are probably more advanced in their workout routines so no need to compare with them. You have the right mindset, complete the goal in front of you and then worry about doing more later. There are still 25 days left in this month, you have plenty of time.

Seaurchin, I think you're doing it just right! I'd take steady and consistent over fast any day. I run but I have to admit that I haven't kept to a schedule and am inconsistent as of late. Only a couple of years ago I was running SMWF religiously. Due to my inconsistency I've lost tone, but more importantly, I've lost my discipline. Recapturing my discipline is all up to me. Your point about sacrificing food is well taken. Food discipline and sacrifice will get and keep you at goal better and quicker than anything else. As lovely Kaplods' signature line states: "You can't out exercise poor eating habits." Ain't that the truth!

Wow curvynotlumpy look at you go!

Don't worry about keeping up with others seaurchin, just go at your own pace. It isn't a competition, we are just here to encourage each other to stay active.

Keep it up!
