Default November Walking Challenge

It's time to set our goals for November!

Here's my goal...

November goal = 90 miles
Miles walked = 0
Miles to go = 90

Let's walk our way through November! With the holidays here, we need to stay focused on taking care of ourselves to prevent those holiday pounds from creeping up on us.

Let's do it!

November goal: 140 miles
Miles walked: 64
Miles to go: 76

(Before ya'll think that's a typo, nope I'm actually going for that. But keep in mind I have to walk at least 4 miles 5 days a week (2 miles to class, and 2 miles back). I don't have a car anymore so I walk everywhere!)

I'm new to this challenge, but it might be exactly what I need to stay motivated.

November goal: 50 miles
Miles walked: 62 miles
Miles to go: 0 miles

I think I should adjust my goal. I guess I'll see how it is going next week.

I would like to join to. I will work out the miles and post back here.

Have you used this map for working out your routes and distance ?

November goal = 90 miles
Miles walked = 3
Miles to go = 87

Ok, so I'm off to a sloooow start for the month. I made the mistake of doing a lower body strength workout that was too advanced for me and have been limping the past two days. My house reeks of bengay. I even bought homeopathic cream - Arnica Montana - to help ease my pain! I'm like an old lady!

I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow. I'd like to get some miles in over the weekend.

hey everyone,

I didn't post yesterday because I had to go to the doctor. I have a problem with my knee again (the problem is a meniscus tear).
What is knee cartilage? Is it the meniscus or the ends of the bone?
Both the covering of the bone within the joint and the meniscus are made of cartilage--this makes the issue a little confusing. People often say 'cartilage' to mean the meniscus (the wedges of cartilage between the bone) or to mean the joint surface (so-called articular cartilage which caps the ends of the bone). It is very painful. I am taking a medicine called Diclofenac. I have to take it for 4 weeks minimum. I am going to have to stay off my feet for a few days. That is not good. The medicine also is probably going to cause some weight gain. I just starting dropping weight after a long slump. So I am not too happy with this situation.

freethetoys - Good question, I have been including the bit of jogging I do while I take walks. I would think it's OK?
