Walking Group meet, 1st of March.

Hello. It's that time again, the first of the month when I hand over this page to the Walking Group, who check in with their miles for the previous months. I'm leaving it up to you to do a running total, so if you could post your miles for January and February here, I will be well chuffed. You can come back to this post at any time if you miss it today, this is where we all chat about how we are doing with our own personal challenges. 
Here is my chart, I finished off tonight with two miles to make it a round two hundred. You can see I missed three days, but made it up by doing extra on other days. I have a two and a three mile walk around my village, that can give me 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 miles. On the day I did 8 miles, I added an extra bit onto it and walked a bit further.  
We are two months into it now, those who did it last year will be a picture of health and feeling pretty darn good. If you started this year, you should be feeling a bit better, the longer you do it the fitter you become. Don't expect miracles, don't give up because you think it isn't making any difference to your fitness levels. It will come if you give it time. If you have fallen behind a bit, give yourself a kick up the backside, and make up your mind to get stuck in. Make March the month you will succeed. No matter how much I nag you, ultimately it's down to you.

Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.

  1. Only 54 miles this month I'm afraid, due to illness and life getting in the way.
    Total since Jan 1st is now 134 miles.
    Hopefully I will get a better total in March. Main thing is to keep at it I think!

  11. Hi everyone, just over 104 miles walked in February making a total of 235 so far this year. Not as good as last year but still plenty of time to equal last year's achievement over 12 months. Thanks Ilona.

  12. Amy in Florida -- I have many more miles on the bike!! But, my walking total for February is 43.55 and running total is 87.15. I will up my walks to 4 and above to try and get more miles! Thanks for the inspiration, Ilona. Love this challenge.

  13. This is a response to your previous post. Having read about the Everest climber, I had a look on YouTube for treks to Everest Base Camp. There are lots! We were thrilled because a relative of ours is doing this trek in April. It was really interesting to see what it will be like for him.

    Regarding your upcoming walk - have you thought about doing the Coast to Coast path? I've just been reading the two Yorkshire Shepherdess books, and want to walk in her part of the world as soon as I can. But first I have to undergo a hip replacement at the end of the month, and who knows how fit I will be after that?

  14. What a great thing to do to keep records of your mileage and sharing it with everyone else. Think I might start keeping a note. I walk 2 miles to work each day (apart from weekends)and 2 miles home (one week). I like to do 2 miles per day on my exercise bike - does this count?

  15. I walk everyday ...with my dog mostly. Just wondering if any of your group use a pedometer to measure distance ? If so are they fairly accurate for recording how far you walk ? My reason for asking is that I'm mostly going across fields & public foot paths etc which are not easily mapped out for distance.....sometimes I just follow my dog and he's not checking distances at all! Rae x P.s My admiration goes out all the group...well done.

  20. Good morning everyone. I walked 78.3 in February for a total of 153.7 year to date. A sore hip is slowing me down, but I just keep doing what I can.😀 Thanks for starting this Ilona. It's great to being doing it together.

  21. I have managed 113 miles for February making a total of 225 miles so far. There has been plenty of walking into town (a round trip of 6 miles) to do bits of shopping etc which saves on petrol and is a pleasant walk. Looking forward to some better weather for getting out on the coastpath in the coming weeks. Good luck everyone for March - Spring is on its way! Sarah (Cornwall)

  24. Hello Ilona. Checking in for Wences with a total of 331 miles so far. Although during February our weather was very cold here in the north of Spain, the days were mainly dry and sunny, so he managed more miles than in January. Wishing everyone a lovely March.

    February total is 75 miles, not bad considering days of illness with winter cold bugs. Total 158.5 miles 2017.

  26. Well done everyone.
    You met your target Ilona so I'm wondering if you are aiming at 1200 miles this year.
    My total so far is 190. It was more of a struggle in February for various reasons.
    Am hoping we don't get too many March winds. Sue

  31. Only 35 miles this month but again we had a nasty snow storm so more slipping and sliding than walking. Well the weather is turning nicer so hopefully I'll get my numbers up in March.

  32. Oops forgot to give my total - 65 miles. Not bad for 2 months for someone who was basically a drive everywhere person.

  40. A measly 28.1 miles for February, running total 62.5. My blood pressure's been scary high this month. The doctor's adding another med to my daily dose. Fingers-crossed it helps.

  41. A bit behind this month Ilona just 77 miles but hopefully I will make it up over the next 10 months! Jules x

  42. I was unwell and only managed 5 miles that week. But I made up for it at half term so my monthly total is 70 miles

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sorry for delay reporting in Ilona, I've done 50, not brilliant but I've done what I can within the time I have available. Feeling positive for March and as I like to walk early in the morning I think it will get easier for me as the mornings become lighter (and warmer, hopefully!).

  44. Hi to all from New Hampshire, USA. I'm just starting in March, and my health is not strong, so my goal is 500 miles for the year. If I can do that, I'll be delighted. Thanks, Ilona, for inspiring me to do this. I love your blog!
