Check in day for the Walking Group

It soon comes round, doesn't it. The first of the month is check in day for the International Walking Group. The figures coming in last month were very inspiring, so many people still doing the challenge. Don't forget, it's your own personal challenge that counts. I set myself 1000 miles again, but some people are committed to their own personal numbers. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you are doing some walking.

So this is where I'm at. 686 miles for me. The 28 miles I did when I had a few days away really bumped it up. Now I am back to walking three miles a day around my local area.

Howzit for you? Are you keeping up the momentum, or dropping back a bit. There will be times when you think I just can't be bothered, I get like that sometimes. But if it's not raining and I have an hour to spare I have no excuses not to get up off my arse and go out there.

Your turn now, let us know how you are getting on. Toodle pip.  ilona

  3. Hello Ilona, my August achievements are: 82 kilometers walking, making a total to date of 742 kilometers.
    I pushed my bike's pedals up and down to a total of 102 kilometers in August.
    My health of mind and body and happiness make me give my life a 9 out of 10.
    Cheers to you and all fellow walkers!

  4. I am walking for an hour and a half each day.I've not measured the distance lately,but I have added a bit on.I do stop for the occasional chat and for the dogs but then I try and catch up and walk fast and get out of breath.I try to run on a straight bit but I can soon come a cropper on a tree root.It's beautiful outside at the moment,the sunshine coming through the huge oak trees,acorns covering the ground,squirrels busy,busy and blackberries in varying stages of ripeness-I love the autumn.I'm going to use my pedometer again but I' m not sure how reliable it is x

  7. Hi Ilona, thank you for the challenge, without it I certainly would not have walked so much in the heat of August! So I managed 109 miles, bringing me to 628 in total. Besides, I did quite a lot of biking, which does not count, but is a good way of exercise, too.

  12. Good evening Ilona,
    Monthly email since I cannot post comments to google blogs, even though I have one...sigh...
    It was a quiet month for me this month, I got vertigo and it is August in Phoenix, two wonderful reasons to walk less each day. Month total of 50, year to date total of 585.
    It is 3:30 pm here as I write this, outside temperature is 105, and humidity at 21% makes it seem humid, so everyone in the Arizona desert is indoors ;). Thanks again for this walking club and your blog! It brighten my days.
    Thanks,
    Hilogene in Arizona

  16. Sorry I'm late with my miles as usual, I did 40 this month which isn't great for me. The weather here was a bit challenging as was either torrential rain or extremely hot, but I did the best I could! Well done all as usual.
