Round Loweswater today, wind was the worst I've ever experienced haha...50+ mph
Well two days to go. I'm 0.4 mile from 1100 outdoor walking activity miles for the year and 32000 steps from 4 million for the year. Need to push myself these next two days. Had the plantar fasciitis injection two weeks ago which hasn't been too bad so far. Also currently done an outdoor walking activity walk of 1 mile for each day this year so far, another two days to go to hit my other target.
I'm on 1191.8 miles for the year so far, 2,565,446 steps. Off out in a bit to hit the 1200. Happy with that, my target was 1000. Christmas doesnt half knack up the routine mind, done nowt for a week. Need a new challenge for the new year.
I live at the end of 7 nature trails, so no excuses for not walking the dogs...but I've got a huge garden and wild land beyond, so the mutts are hardly short of excercise, so if you don't get going early, they're both knackered after a few hudred yards and we end up carrying them back.
As a postie, I'm used to walk loads day in and day out tbh but never kept track of how much walking I do. Problem with me is when I get time off work like I am this next week, I will barely leave the house because walking is the last thing I want to do.
I might well end up doing something like what Bob in the news story up above has done and give myself a set distance to walk over the year and raise some money in the process.
I think 5k miles might be achievable if he can do it. It's only 13.67 miles per day....easy
