      It was but no longer, they bear the burden of a dying business, the actual door to door being the most expensive thing the PO does it is where they are trying to cut the most. I got out just ahead of the internet thankfully.

                    Easy for me. I work in a hospital. I can easily walk 6 to 9 miles a night if it's busy.

                      Thanks guys for the supportive and helpful comments! Today I finally gained the courage to walk the same route as I used to with my dog and I wasn't emotional like I thought I would be and I feel great. I really did miss walking I think I walked around 2.5 km. I'll download the Run Keeper app so hopefully my distance will be more accurate next time.

                          tell me about your pace.

                          i did my 4.5km the other night in a little over an hour. an hour and five minutes. i challenged myself to walk slowly, because this is how my brain will benefit most.

                            A week late, but I am totally in for this! This summer I was really good about walking a lot, with a goal of 40 miles per month (which I usually met or exceeded). I generally track how much I walk on mapmyrun.com. 1000km is 621miles, but I like even numbers so I’m going to round up to a goal of 650 miles in 2012.

                              you're making a mess of the challenge. it's 1000km, no more, no less.

                              i'm in america, too, but i'm converting.

                                dado - I use runkeeper and I find my comfortable pace is about 6km/h. Have been concentrating on slow regular deep breathing while I walk and I find that pace puts me into the optimal 55-75% max HR range quite nicely. I have a regular walking track loop which is in parkland, its about 3.1km and that takes me around 30 mins.

                                Also, I think 1000km is the goal but if you go past it, so much the better, more slow movement is goodness! I'd hate people to stop just becuase they cracked the 1000km mark

                                Elizabeth, welcome! It's not too late Report your progress here and I'll update the front page weekly. Great to have you on board!
