I just found out my ipod has a pedometer on it so Ive been tracking my steps for the past few days. Trying to get betwenn 8,000 and 10,000 a day. Ran 5 miles this morning so im already at 10,000. I think I just won't move the rest of the day.
My knee still hurts a little bit. I had planned another looong hike for the weekend (my 100kms hike is in 2 weeks, I need some training) but I am not sure if I can do it without doing harm...
So just a short walk yesterday (3.2 kms around the block)
I've made good progress, as I've been walking 4-10 km daily for the past fortnight since my car was written off.
I can feel my legs have got a lot stronger.
I toyed with the idea of living car-free for a few months, which would make me more primal I suppose, but wimped out, and can't wait to pick up the new car on Sunday.

Finally getting caught up to some of you (even passing a few). Will this week at peak of over 50km. Total now at 274km. Taking advantage of the weather and walking to/from work every day. The best part is that the mornings are just cold enough (low 50's F) to also get a good hour of cold thermogenesis in.
I have to say that this challenge is the best ever. If I can keep this rate up, I will blow through the 1000km, but we are still very much held hostage by the weather. Will just have to take advantage of it while I can.
