Check in for the Walking Group

Well I haven't quite made it to the target again. I should be on 583, and I am 10 short. Oh dear. I must pull my finger out and get on with it. I am going to be very busy over the next few weeks, after the exhibition I will be going on holiday. At least I will get some walking done then to hopefully catch up.

How is everyone else doing? Are you surging ahead, or are you struggling to keep up? Report your achievements, and your failings. Give each other a pat on the back, or commiserations, whichever is appropriate.
Ta very muchly. ilona

  1. Hello Ilona.
    Our mileage for the year so far is 707miles BUT our mileage for July is 71.
    This is down to I’ll health heat and a lot of gardening!
    I think your 10 mile deficit sounds good beside that.
    Thanks for keeping this going. I couldn’t find the original check in at the top of the page.

    1. I haven't had a check in at the top of the page for a long time. Check in has been on the 1st of the month, for a year and a half. Your mileage is very impressive. Keep going.

    2. I'm obviously dozier than I thought. Sorry!

  3. My total this month is 87 miles and year to date is 827. It's less than normal I think because of the heat and being busy. I have swam more and done more kayaking.
    Happy walking to all.

    Hello: My total for the month is 63 miles, no excuses really, life gets in the way sometimes. Total for the year 584 miles. Partner and I are on a diet and more walking is on the menu also, so hope the total number of miles will be better at the end of August. Patricia from Canada.

    1. Great to hear about the diet, but think of it more as healthy eating. The walking will help.

  5. Hello Ilona, due to nasty heel pain I only managed to walk 31 kilometers in July, but now I can not walk I have started cycling, taking long bike rides in my beautiful countryside. So, in July I rode 352 kilometers on my bike, which was and still is a wonderful alternative for walking, I think (and feel!).
    Hope to start my daily walks again in August.
    Happy walking to you and all Meanqueen fellow walkers.
    Cheers,

    Jeanneke.

    2. At least you are still moving, that's the main thing. Adapt your exercise to suit your body.

  11. I’ve done 54 - my personal target is 50 and I’m amazed I’ve made it this month as it has been too hot for walking most days. I have been out early or in the evenings in order to keep on track. My mileage is very low compared to most of you but I am enjoying it and remain committed.

    1. It’s what you are aiming at that matters not what others have done.
      Our art teacher always tells us to compare our most recent effort to our earlier ones rather than to other people's.
      Well done. Enjoying the walks is half the battle! Sue

    2. It has been very hot. As Sue says, don't compare yourself with others, it's not a competition, you are doing what you can. Keep doing it.

  12. 83.3 miles this month making a total of 542.8 miles to date. Hopefully might be able to make up the shortfall gradually. Thank you.

    1. It's only a small shortfall, plenty of time to reach the target.

  13. Only 62 miles this month. The heat has affected me and some days I got quite breathless. Hopefully my score will go up if the weather cools down a bit.

    1. We had a blip of cooler weather, but now it's set to rise again. It is making it hard going for everyone. Five months left, we all have time to catch up.

    Hi Ilona and fellow walkers. Most of this month has been arctic in our state of Victoria. Wild wind, teeming rain and snow flurries, the coldest it has been for a few years now. Walks have been squeezed in whenever the weather allows. Down to 78 miles for this month (target 100) making 634 miles so far. Quite happy with that - warmer weather will come eventually along with more, and longer walks. Good luck with your exhibition and happy walking everyone!!

    July was even hotter than June, so I took my walks either in the early morning or after 9 in the evening. I was surprised to see that I managed over 100 miles, which brings me to a total of 659.

    1. Looks good to me. I've had some lovely walks at 9pm when most people are slumped in front of a box. The roads have been lovely and quiet.

  16. Only managed 62.51 miles. Half the blame goes to lack of motivation (me) and the other half the weather (rain). Total for this year is 632.51 Hopefully a better result next month. Lisa W. Tasmania, Australia.

  17. Good morning. Not such a great month this month. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather so I can get out more. Managed 133 bringing my yearly total to 1038. Hopefully I can catch up this month. Have a 5 k in a couple of weeks so that should kick start me. Hope all goes well with the exhibition. Love all your art work. Amanda in Atlanta.

  18. Hello Ilona and Walking group,
    This month in Arizona was super hot...I set out to walk before 7 and it is usually over 90! I walk my dog, and as long as the sun isn’t too high in the sky, the roads are not too hot for the dog’s paws. This month was 61 miles, so the year to date total is 423. Super glad to be included in this walking group. Hope the weather isn’t too oppressive for everyone! This year I am averaging about 2 miles d ay, down from last year at 3, but I am now going to the gym a lot, so this level of walking is more for my peace of mind :)

  24. Sorry I'm late for my check in. My dad's been in and out of hospital for most of this month and he'll be there again next week, so I haven't done any real walking apart from coming and going to the hospital. My total remains to 536km so far.
    Your art and crafts are amazing, Ilona. Good luck with the exhibition!

  25. Sorry for late check-in. Busy at work. 83 miles in July. Total now 846 to date.

  26. Total to date should say 646, not 846. Time for bed.
