well I am at 18 miles. I ended up running 3 miles and walking at least 2 miles so that is good. I plan on doing atleast 5 miles tomorrow but am not sure if it will be running or walking yet.

Cool

WTG everyone Sounds like there's alot of success happening around here! Keep it up, even if you leave me in the dust...


This week I did:
Oct. 10 - 10 miles
Oct. 13 - .5
Oct. 14 - .5
Oct. 16 - 2 miles

That's 13 miles plus the five I had the first week - for a total of 15 miles....

It doesn't look like I'll make 100 miles for October, but I'll do the best I can.

Since my weigh in on Wednesday I have made a personal commitment to exercise at least 20 minutes every day. So far I've only oops'd on Friday.

Anyways, I expect I'll be adding signicantly more miles next week.

:-J

PS I think I need to get on the pedometer band wagon too!

well I did 3 miles yesterday and 5 today. I wanted to do 5 yesterday but I guess that that is alright. I did more then I thought that I would today so I am happy. That brings my total up to 26 for the month so far. I know that I won't make it to 100 but I will try to make up for what I didn't do the first week by increasing a little on the days that I run.

well today's total is 6.5 miles. I ran 3.6 miles and walked the rest. That brings my total to 32.5 for the month. I am so proud of myself for running that much since I haven't done it in years. I am trying to increase the milage since I want to be able to run 5 miles with only 1 maybe 2 stops. but until then I guess that I will be switching between 5 min. run and a 4 min walk. Next week I will increase by a minute my run and stay the same walking part. After I am capable of doing the 5 miles then I will work on my speed more.

Gabrielle,
You make me envious (in a good way) of all the exercise you get! I wish I had time to do that much, really! I want to increas the amount of time I exercise each day. Don't think I'd ever enjoy running/jogging but I do want to increase my endurance a bit! It's never to late to start those hikes I wanted to start this spring! But maybe I will save them for the weekend and the daylight! 5 miles sounds heavenly! I do need to get some music, even though you said you did it all without music today...I think I would go further with music! Just a thought!

Today I did 2 miles but really wanted to do 2.5. My body just wasn't willing today! Back hurting, wind blowing in ears, etc. I just wanted to get it done! Most days I really enjoy the walk outdoors! Am grateful to be able!

Well, I am chugging along. Got in two days of over six miles on the weekend...didn't have time to walk yesterday, and forgot to wear my pedometer, but I am up to over 40 miles and feeling great about it. Today was another no walk day, but I am wearing the pedometer, so will have a more accurate count. Hope everyone is doing ok.

Well, yesterday after work I remembered to put on my pedometer, after forgetting it all weekend and most of last week. So since about 6:00 yesterday evening I've gone 4.78 miles, and 4.11 of that was today. I finally made it over 10,000 steps! Yay! Tomorrow I will remember the stupid thing in the morning and wear it all day. And there should be plenty of steps tomorrow. I'm going to dinner with my healthy friend tomorrow, and I'm going to try to get him to go for a walk with me, just to get in some sort of exercise, because I need to do something. More steps!

Keep up the good work, chicks!

Ok, chickies, are you ready for this? I mean, I told you there would be a lot of walking today, but really, prepare yourselves...

9.75 miles! And I'm not quite finished yet. 8.5 of those miles were done before leaving work at 5pm, so I didn't make my buddy for for a walk with me. I figured 20,500 steps was enough for one day! Plus my legs hurt!

The plan is to get on the stairclimber in the morning, then wear the pedometer all day. Another long shift tomorrow, though not as long as today's. Anyway, WOOHOO!
How's that for being back on track?

Hi All

Just checkin' in.

Monday I water ran for 45 minutes - another 3 miles. I've been doing a fair bit of swimming - not walking so my total is going up rather slowly. Oh well, at least I am getting some exercise in most days. Total miles 18.

I guess some of this exercise is paying off - I was down 4.4 this week at WI.

Later
:-J

Ok, so where are all my 100-mile Challenge chickies?!

I'm still walking, at least. It feels like that's all I've been doing for the past few days. Yesterday brought in 6.0 miles, and today I'm at 4.88 right now.

Yeah, not much train of thought this evening. Just wanted to get that in. Going to update my signature, then watch a movie. Have a good night!

I got 7 more miles today. That is good for me. I ran 5 of those. I also got 1.5 miles during the weekend. That brings me to 47 miles. I won't make it to 100 but I did try so I am pleased with that.
