Good morning. The year is whizzing along, half way through it already. Howz my walking been going for this month? We had a lot of rain, so it was a matter of going out and doing two miles instead of three, in between showers. When it rained all day I hoped I could find 35 minutes before bed time. Looking at the calendar I missed seven days completely, but as I had a few miles in hand from May, due to the holiday in Cornwall, I managed to keep on track. I couldn't let it slip back too far, so I did a couple of days of five miles to balance it out, and finished on 500 miles yesterday. That was close.
So how did you all do? Is anybody monitoring their progress daily like I do? Writing it down on a calendar, or in a book? I find having a calendar on my desk in front of me keeps me in check. Every square gets filled in, even if I don't do any walking. I try not to have too many 'X' s At a glance I can see if I am keeping up, or lagging behind.
The sun is shining this morning, but showers are predicted so I will find a slot of one hour to do the three miles. I spent most of the day in the garden yesterday, mowing the lawns and trimming the hedges, so that's looking tidy. Some re potting to do, and a bit more hedge trimming.
Now it's your turn, Let's have some reports from the International Walking Group members. Are you keeping up with it at the half year mark, or has your New Years Resolution died a death. If you have not yet joined the group now would be a good time to start. Why not give yourself a target for six months. Mine will be another 500 miles, yours could be anything you like. Members are responsible for monitoring their own progress, and counting their own distances. I use bikehike.co.uk. I have a two and a three mile walk around my village, and will add in any walking done in other areas. It's up to you what you do.
Breakfast for me now, then off to Crafty Club. I'll catch ya later. ilona
