    Nicely done, everyone!

    Brookej, I like your goal. I wonder if I can find the Lord of the Rings walking distances again. (I'm nerdy. What can I say?)

    I had my phone in my pocket the whole time I was having a walking date with a friend, her puppy, and my dog. That was kind of impressive... 9497 steps, 5.1 miles. Weird. Didn't seem that long. I guess the friend who speaks English and not just dog also makes it easier.

    I definitely will have a hard time keeping that up when work starts back on Monday and/or the sideways rain comes back.

    But for now, it's sunny and COLD. I'll take it.


    ETA: Here's how one does simply walk into Mordor with lots of useful information that's not about hobbits. http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2012/07/23/walking/

    This one has the distances for LOTR journeys. http://home.insightbb.com/~eowynchallenge/Walk/walk.html

    I'm going to do the Bag End to Rivendell walk first. 3.5 + 5.1 = 8.6 miles in two days. That puts me getting my last glimpses of Hobbiton (http://home.insightbb.com/~eowynchallenge/Tools/Bag_end/bag_end.html).

    Awesome! I've been trying to get my family to start walking more. This might help a reluctant 13 year old son.

    Got my walk in today. 4.65 miles in an hour and 37 minutes. It was a beautiful day for a walk.

    3 miles today, so I'm at 6.5 miles so far. Seems like a lot, but I know that will slow quite a bit tomorrow when I go back to work!

    3.9 miles today, the first mile was 18% grade up-freaking-hill.

    In my nerdy LOTR walk from Bagend to Rivendell, I've recently finished supper on day one and have started walking again.

    I'm in! I'm restarting this journey. My goal: 8,000 steps daily.
  • treseyftreseyf Posts: 18Member Member Posts: 18Member Member
    OK I walked 4 miles on my treadmill 1hr. 24min.
    Almost 9,240 steps so far.

    Hi Folks, just signed up to MFP, and saw this. I have tried running, and always seem to injure myself, so walking it is! Swaped to a very sedentary job last year and have piled on the pounds. Walked miles around London today, but no pedometer. Going to put one on tomorrow abd try to do 10,000 a day or equivalent each day.

    Welcome. ..and you can do it!

    I'm in. Where do I log in and keep track
  • NuggetLovesEdieNuggetLovesEdie Posts: 550Member, Premium Member Posts: 550Member, Premium Member
    Just right here, bill. Whenever you walk, just add your time/distance/steps/however you keep track right here. I'm sure even a "yup I did" is sufficient.

    I'd like to join please. My kids start back at school tomorrow, I usually walk unless the weather is severe. I'm ashamed to say tomorrow will be the first walk I've taken since they broke up a couple of weeks ago
  • SmurfBunny1027SmurfBunny1027 Posts: 150Member Member Posts: 150Member Member
    2 more miles for me today. 8.5 total so far. If I keep this up I may need to increase my goal. I'm almost a third of the way there on day 4!
  • kgirlhartkgirlhart Posts: 3,332Member Member Posts: 3,332Member Member
    I got in 3.1 miles today in an hour and 10 minutes.
  • CricketKateCricketKate Posts: 3,600Member Member Posts: 3,600Member Member
    4 miles on the dreadmill this morning. They felt a lot tougher than my last walk/jog.
