    I use RunKeeper on my iPhone, so effectively GPS. It's great for exactly this sort of thing.

    • NIce work everyone! I'm at 152.51km, but back on track after being away for work and kept in by bad weather! Starting to reel in the gap ... pro-rata target for today is 218.58km, but I'm confident of bringing it back in. By the way that means we are more than 20% of the way through 2012 already!

        • It's a bit quiet here this week... I'm having a week off walking in the hope that my sore feet will recover, restarting yoga tomorrow and walking on Sunday. Can't wait!

                    • I averaged something like 7-10 hours the last two weeks due to spending hours at malls and shopping centers.

                            • I attended a congress last week, so not much walking then. I didn't track my walking, but I guess maybe 10 kms during these days. Plus a few kms at the north sea coast where I spent the weekend. Including a nice barefoot walk on the beach!

                              Today I made a long walk. 20 kms in perfect spring weather.

                              260.7 kms as of March 25
                              280.9 kms as of March 27

                              • Had not checked in for awhile so here is a quick update.

                                Did my walking commute, plus walk at lunch for total of 13.5 km for 1 day. As the weather improves, this will be a daily thing for me. Really loving the walk to work thing.

                                Keep totals in my sig, but up to 132 km total for the year. Catching up, but really need increase both frequency and distance if I am going to make the challenge. Right now averaging 1.6 km/day (ytd) and need to be at 3.1 km/day for everyday until the end of the year to make the challenge.
