  • 6.5km this afternoon. Walked a circuit that I hadn't measured before so a bit disappointed it isn't my usual 8km. Almost feel cheated. This is very different coming from someone who in previous times would do almost anything to avoid going for a walk.

    • Summer has finally arrived in the UK - just in time for the London Olympics. Cue the conspiracy theories.

      I walked about 14 km today around Bristol Harbour. Our annual Harbour Festival is on, and it's stacking up for a record number of visitors this year, as everyone's so desperate to get out and enjoy the sunny weather, now that the jet stream has returned to its normal position.

GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

      • I've limiting the interwebs as part of a self-imposed digital vacation. I also ruptured a tendon in my foot that has been an ongoing problem. I have still walked a bit and when I can find my phone I'll post my update.

        • Have you found any interesting walking challenges? I stumbled across the "Walk to Mordor" one on nerdfitness but I think I need something with a little more instant gratification first. I remember when the elevator broke at work and we were keeping track of the number of times we counted Mt. Greylock over a period of a few months. If anyone knows of something similar (especially in an exotic type locale) it would be greatly appreciated.

          • LOL -- I checked my Runkeeper year to date ... I'm exactly half way at 500.5 km (311 miles). I'm not as far behind as I thought! I still need to kick it up a notch or two ...

            • 8km late this afternoon. Found another bush walk. Didn't get to the end of it so next time we are going to take a snack and a drink and see how far it goes.

              • 7.5km today while we waited for the car to be serviced. The service centre is right on the edge of town so managed to get a bit of country into the walk.

                • I hiked 57 km this weekend. Carried a 10 kg backpack with everything needed (food, clothes, tent, sleeping bag...) Today my calves are really sore, but it was a good weekend!

                  876.6 kms so far. I can't believe that I am already so far!

                    • Turnstone-- how fun! I am recommitted to walking to work in the hopes it will jumpstart my motivation. Its hot here though -- over 100 F by the time I'm ready to head home ....

                      • I've just started Walking to Mordor, so I'm coming in very late in the game. I've begun walking 2.5 miles in the morning; starting tomorrow, I'll bump that up to 5 miles. If I stick to that plan, then I'll make the 1,000 km by the end of the year.

                        • Walked 9 kms today. Just in the city, nothing spectacular.

                          • 6km this afternoon along an old logging track. Pretty much downhill for the 3km walk out and uphill for the return. Certainly tested the cardio capacity.

                            • Second day of walking 5 miles at a moderate/brisk pace. Have walked 20 miles since Friday. So far, so good!
