    I'm starting with two mile walks, going to build up to 3 mile runs, uphill, with a big bucket of water. Buahaha. Training to enter a spartan race later this year. :D

    Ran Kastle two miles and walked one on my lunch break. Instead of eating lunch out :) Then I had a yogurt and an apple for lunch.

    I usually do the uphill runs with a 35 lb kid in a stroller anyway, so this'll just be to get ready for the race. Because I want to win it. Arrooo!

    Must make a spear and practice throwing that too.

    I can't walk or run outside alone, and I don't have a treadmill, BUT my dad does have a stationary bike. So I'm going to try to ride that for a little bit tomorrow.

    One week in, how are we all doing? We had some great weather here so I was able to get out a little more. Didn't have any motivational problems last week, but it's going to be darned hard to keep it up this week! The weather's supposed to be getting a little frosty and I'm no snow bunny.

    23 miles total here. It's rainy and gross now and I was at an agility trial all weekend, so I'm a bit behind. :p 10 mile hike planned for next Sunday though!!

    Holy cow, I just signed up for that RunKeeper site and put in Frodo's walk that we take every other day, and it's two miles! I was expecting it to be less than a mile. Now I kind of want to participate and make it a Frodo and I thing (I plan on running again once spring is here and I won't kill myself on ice) and see how much we actually walk between this and going walking/hiking other places...

    Hmmmm, exercise tickers in the signature lines, cool idea!

    I did a little over 25 miles actual walking (I walk to and from work, a little over three miles each way) plus 17 on the treadmill. As I said, it was nice here last week. This week... not so much.

    Nasty weather here has been cramping my walking, but I'm still moving along.

    I'm 3.33% to my goal today! LOL

    Downloaded RunKeeper yesterday, very cool! Similar to MapMyWalk but with the added bonus that you can keep your actual route maps private. Oh yeah, and you can start your "Goal" tracking in the past. I couldn't back my goal up to the beginning of the year on MMW.

    I have endomondo on my cell phone. it tracks what I do when i turn it on. I normally do atleast 5k every walk.But winter is harder for me, due to light. but when days are longer I do anywhere from 5-10k a day or more. I game, and pretty confident I could go past it. I love walking

    (5k = 3.1miles)

    Up to 21 miles and I haven't calculated today's totals. Still one more walk of the evening.

    You know, when you have a choice walking for fitness is fun. You get a great sense of accomplishment.

    Today... not so much. I'm going to be vehicle-less for two days, van's going for an extended stay at the shop. Last week this would have been an adventure. Today, again... not so much.

    Weather Network tells me it's -18°C today, the windchill shoving that down to -28°C (0°F & -18°F). Peachy. Going to be doing some really BRISK walking.
