Here we go again, another check in for the International Walking Group, doesn't seem like five minutes since we did the last one. How have you all been doing? I am pleased to say I have done slightly more than the target, not much mind you, but better than lagging behind then having to catch up later. My total for 10 months is 844 miles. This is mostly made up of two or three miles each day walking locally. You see, a bit every day does mount up.
Sometimes I think I can't be bothered, I am watching the time and thinking shall I shan't I? But then I think what else do I need to do with an hour that can't wait till later or even tomorrow. Walking has to have priority because it benefits my health. I need to do it.
Quite a lot of members are still with us, still plodding away, and that's a good sign. Think how much this is benefitting you, how much better you feel both physically and mentally. Walking gives me thinking time, as well as exercising my joints and muscles. I see people hobbling to the doctors surgery, I don't want that to be me. I want to keep going for as long as I am able to put one foot in front of the other.
You don't need to break records with your walking, don't need to keep up with me or anyone else, all you have to do is some walking, as much as you can manage. It is better if you give yourself a target because that can motivate you to keep going. Seeing the numbers increase daily is a great incentive.
Today is the first day of November, if you are not in the International Walking Group, why not start today. It's a year long challenge, no need to wait till the end of the year, you can do November to November. It's not too late to start making a difference to the rest of your life. Do it now, no excuses.
Your turn, let's have some reports, how are you all doing?
