    I'm in - I have decided not to use the car to drive into work from Tuesday, all that up and down the Tube will do me good. I will dust off the old fit bit too!

    The annual Resolution Run was yesterday. I did the longer version of it (4 miles), but walk/jogged it. I am returning to running after a year long hiatus :(. Back at it now though.

    01/01/2016 - walked 1.88 miles - 40 mins
    01/02/2016 - walked 2.2 miles - 45 mins

    I almost didn't, but then I wouldn't have been able to update here today. We had a long day at my son's wrestling meet and then dinner with family, and although I felt like being lazy tonight, I decided I needed to get my walk in anyway! I'm so glad I did!

    I'm in. Yesterday I walked 3.80 miles in an hour and 20 minutes. Today I walked 4 miles in an hour and 24 minutes. I'm not sure how accurate my pedometer is. I mostly go by time and just try to get in an hour a day at least.

    Count me in!! :)
    Been away from MFP but trying to get back on the saddle.
    I'm excited!! Is there anyone who'll be using runkeeper or pacer to track their steps?

    OK Mel, I'm assuming being chuffed is a good thing? I love that word! Congrats on your day!

    I met and exceeded yesterday's goal and walked 12,175 steps.

    Today will be more laid back and is my day off from aerobic activity, so 8,000 should be realistic; however, I'm going for 9,000. Wish me luck!
