3 mi. this morning and 4 mi. this afternoon = 7 mi. for the day.

41 mi. for the month.

Thanks for starting this thread Jules -- it's very motivating to be able to see how well we all are doing.

Keep up the walking everyone -- just think how fit we're becoming.

Hi guys, the weather here in Houston is dreary which makes me want to just veg out and watch TV but I keep telling myself that I need to stay motivated. I usually do 2 or 3 miles in the morning. The past few days I've been working late into the night and barely conscious enough to get ready for work in the morning.....much less wanting to work out. So I told myself on days off I much exercise at night. I'm so tempted to just sit and watch TV when I get home but then I read how well you all are doing and that just motivates me to do it. Thanks for the inspiration....sorry for rambling on.

I have asked others this question but can't seem to get an answer. I see you all talking about miles you've walked and I just want to know: How do I know? How can I tell how many miles I've gone? For that matter, how can I tell how many mph I'm walking? I know that I walk at a semi-brisk, comfortable pace. My heart rate rises and I breathe a little heavier. Can anybody help me here?

We use a set of work out videos/dvds called Walk away the pounds with leslie sansone, you can buy them at target/wal-mart I think they are the greatest . The workout walk will tell you how many miles you've walked I personally use the one, two, and three mile dvd's and they are wonderful if I feel like walking more I double one walk with another ie. the 2 mile with the 3 mile for a 5 mile walk.
Hope this helps

Hi Elizabook - if I am walking outside, I go in my car and drive the area first and clock with my odometer a mile, 2 miles, etc. so that I will know how far I have walked. Also a lot of parks with walking tracks will have markers that tell you "so many times around the track is 1 mile" etc. Also the mall has markers on the wall telling you how far around it is for the mall walkers.

If you are walking a mile in 15 minutes, then you are walking 4 mph. If you are walking a mile in 13 minutes - well then I would need a calculator to figure that one.

But yes, the WATP tapes that we are using tell you when you have done 1 mile, 2, 3 and 4, so it makes it really easy.

hope this helps,
cathy

Default Hello, ..... Me too!

I'm just starting to try moving again. Have a bad hip and was put on a different medication which seems to be helping.
I have some of the WATP tapes too, and like the 3-mile one especially.

I just looked at the calendar and realized that if I use my tape only on week days, I can still get in 33 miles for this month.
Plus I'd like to ride my exercise bike a half hour a day, but will have to see how that goes too.

I think this thread is a wonderful idea. See you all tomorrow.
