  • Great work everyone!
    I am just starting to come back to regular walking. Reaching the goal so early was great, but I got sloppy afterwards and lost sight of my slow movements. Don't count the kms anymore but try to get at least 30 mins daily. It's winter over here, which means mostly wet, cold weather. But today there is a little bit of snow, and I am going to enjoy my walk!

    • Hi everyone! Great to see the thread is still going.

      Update - I kinda fell of the wagon a little bit ... not deliberately, and not too far :-) I met a lovely lady in April this year, and well ...kinda got distracted for a while! I concede for a few months the eating wasn't great and the walking really dropped away in our Southern Hemisphere winter.

      But back on deck now and returning to the primal fold. Have been walking a lot more but not tracking as much. Rectified that today by getting a FitBit, really looking forward to using that and tracking my steps. Starting with the 10,000 step a day challenge.

      Hope you are all well and it looks like a few of you have definitely hit the 1000km mark!

          • And as of this morning I have official passed 650 miles for the year 2012!!!

            For some reason my ticker won't update, but after my morning commute today I have reach 652 miles! With 10 days to spare! I'm super excited and I'm going to try for an extra push to walk another 25 miles in those last 10 days since I'll be on vacation and have plenty of time. Just a little mini goal for the end of the year.

            • Thanks everyone!

              One thing I realised since getting the fit bit, you do more movement than I would have thought! I've done 5km today just through normal activity ... I wasnt even counting that before!

              • Final 2012 tally for me was 712.0 miles/1145.9 km.

                I will probably shoot for the 1000K again in 2013, but I don't know if I will post here. I'm really not terribly active in the forums anymore as the signal to noise ratio kind of sucks these days. I still read most of the Mark's articles and links, but I've found that most often reading the forums causes more stress than provides information and I do need to continue to watch my Cortisol levels!!

                • I am not sure what my final distance was. Couldn't update the Ticker after about 1100 kms, but I didn't walk much after that. I continue with 1000 kms for 2013, I need something that gets me out of the door on not so fine days...!

                  • Thread went kinda moribund for a while and I stopped posting, but not walking...final stats fwiw:

                    August 154.3 miles
                    September 115.7
                    October 94.6
                    November 99.3
                    December 42.7

                    2012 total: 1346.7 mi (2167.3 km)

                    I started jogging/running some in the last 3 months and plan to continue that while keeping up the hikes, just maybe with more rest days interspersed. When you hike the same routes you quickly get to know when you're overtrained/overstressed. So far in 2013 I've logged 150 miles and am going for a 15-miler tomorrow morning. Thanks Buzz for a great challenge, I enjoyed everyone's stories and photos!
