Walking Group check in. 4 months totals please.

Good morning. You know what day it is, It's CHECK IN DAY for our International Walking Group members. How have you done? We had 34 people check in on the 1st of April, are they all going to check in again, are they still with us?

Those who are doing the 1000 miles challenge, the target for four months is 333, did you make it? I did, just, ha ha. I finished on 336. It was touch and go for a while. Some rainy says, and days when I just didn't feel like it. I gave myself a good talking to.

I fit my three miles a day in with whatever else I am doing. Now we are getting lighter nights I sometimes go out as late as 9pm. The roads are well lit, it's all on tarmac, so quite safe.

So what's the next target, 415 miles at the end of May. Just thought I'd mention it, to give you an extra push. No slacking now. Whatever your target is, just do your best. Challenge yourself to do more.

Your turn now. Let's have your numbers, ta.  ilona

  1. Hello sorry I've missed posting my monthly figures before. I've done 91 miles in April (total is 368 miles to date). Pleased I've just got to the target but my walking has been a bit erratic, some really long walks and some days hardly at all. Need to concentrate on walking every day.

  3. hi folks - hope everyone's sticking with the walking, I enjoy reading the comments. After my 'March-blip', I'm glad to report that I'm back to regularly striding around the nearby streets & park - and enjoying the fresh air! So total for April was a mighty 21.6miles; total for 4 months to date is 72 miles.

  4. Hi all I have done 89 miles this month so total is 449. Unbelievable and yet only a little amount of time each day. Good luck to everyone

  5. Illness, bruised and blistered feet caused by 'walking shoes' and a packed up pedometer have had me slacking. I will start up walking again but probably won't be logging it from now on. I got a head start earlier in the year but have fell far short these last two months. Well done on meeting your target Ilona. :)

    1. That's a shame things haven't been going right for you. It's important to have the right shoes and socks. Do what you can.

  7. Good morning, Did a bit better during the month of April, weather starting to co-operate, so logged 64 miles for the month. Total for the first four months 200 miles. I have not set a goal for the number of miles I walk, congrats to those who have and reached that goal.

    I found a nice 3,5 km (2 miles) walk around our village which I do every day regardless of the weather. And I did very well in April with some really long walks and a short walking holiday. So I am at 125 miles in April and 391 miles in total, and I am very happy about it.

  12. Hi Ilona,

    I am having difficulty posting comments to google blogs ;(. Even if I sign in and out...not just your blog and I have heard others have some issues, so I am resorting to emailing you directly ;)

    I wanted to let you know of my walking group numbers.

    In April I did 80 miles for a year to date total of 312.

    Thanks,
    Hilo

    1. I had the same trouble leaving comments on blogs using my Mac or iPhone going in through Safari. I now use Chrome instead of Safari. Give it a try!

  13. Sorry Ilona,

    I’ve given up trying to post - it works sometimes but not other. Today my post just diassappeared three times so not sure if it ever arrived your end. No buses traffic lights etc to authenticate- I wouldn’t bother you but I like to post my miles.

    Third attempt !! My total miles are total 377.40 and 109 .1 for April. Nice weather here on Cannock Chase and a beautiful Spring.

    Best regards,

    Jenette

    1. That might be why my post has come through three times - I was waiting for the word verification. Oh well - you all know how far I’ve walked !!!!

  14. I have turned off word verification, there should be nothing to tick.

  17. Hi Ilona and walkers, well done, 45 miles for me, did the best I could with the time I have available. I did 52 in April, sorry I didnt check in last month Ilona but just couldn't get blogger to accept my comments - however it does seem to work on my phone. I have discovered that Apple computers don't support blogger commenting unless cookie settings are altered which I don't want to do, but maybe this will be of help to others.

  18. Hey, Ilona and walkers! I want to participate starting today, May 1. Since I am slowly recovering from a long illness, my current goal is 1000 steps per day. I hope that's okay. :)

    1. Hi. That's fine. Walking should help your recovery, a few steps at a time.

    1. Yes, I am loving the longer daylight hours. It means that I might be able to fit everything in that I want to do. The house still looks a mess though, ha ha.

    Hello Ilona and fellow walkers. Not such a good month in April. A few setbacks, but have managed 64 miles bringing a total of 287 miles. Fifty or so off my target, but here's hoping I can make it up over the following months. (At least I am still moving though :) )

  21. Morning Ilona.
    Well done to you and everyone else who's posted. As you always say it's challenging ourselves that matters not comparing our target with anyone else.
    This month we have recorded 85 miles bringing our total to 391 miles this year.
    I love reading the comments though and imagining us all walking every day.
    Hopefully we “ infect” others too.
    Several people round here ask us what we are doing or mention that they see us going past regularly. We are lucky because our shops are about 1 1/2 miles away so that accounts for at least 2 days a week.
    Good luck to everyone for this month. Sue.

    1. I think we got that message, Sue, ha ha. Your fingers must have been dancing round the keyboard.

      It's a good idea to tell people what you are doing, it might encourage others to have a go. Take a rucksack if you need to carry any shopping.

  25. Sorry everyone. I'm having the same trouble as several of you with posts on google so in my frustration I’ve over achieved today and because of the way I’ve had to sign in I can't delete any of these posts. Very red face! Sue

      Thanks for the tip re rucksacks. About once a month we take the car for heavy stuff but otherwise we try to plan to walk and fill our bags. Rucksacks are much better than carrying bags. Have a good month. I enjoyed your sense of humour. Now to try to post this once! Sue
