May total

For third time in the last six months, I have logged over 50 miles of walking within a months time.

March I logged 55 miles

January 50.22 miles

And for May... 50.11 and today is not over yet. I may log in a mile or two by end of the day, although the weather and timing is not in my favor today.

I wish to also mention that my average speed is about 3.2 miles per hour. I try to keep a good pace, but nothing that will tear my legs up, but also not some casual stroll either. Having a good play list definitely helps in this effort!

I am rather psyched about this months total, especially when I was really slack in one week, maybe scoring 5 miles the first week of May. I totally rebounded, finishing this month strong.

My initial goal for June was to clear 50 miles.... but I think I am going to shoot for 60!  That equates to about 15 miles a week. Or if I wanted to whittle it down further, 2.15 miles a day. Of course on weekends is usually my "marathon" walks, where I clear 3-6 miles on one outing.

    That’s awesome! I’m a lifelong “exerciser” and have probably tried everything, but nothing beats walking in my opinion. I love it so much – it’s a time to clear your mind and also burn calories. My two things right now are walking and yoga, and I don’t see that changing because I enjoy both so much!

      Thanks. I have been toying with the idea of Yoga myself, but haven’t fully explored it yet. In my mind this should improve balance, of which I feel that I need. It also gives you a good workout with all the stretching then holding the pose…. it interests me so!

        I’ve done yoga in bits and pieces in the past, usually as parts of other workouts. It hasn’t been until recently that I’ve bought a few DVD’s so I could actually try full yoga workouts at home. It was more challenging that I thought, but I’ve noticed that I keep getting better each time! It’s definitely the ultimate balance workout, too, and has helped my upper back (where I used to get a lot of tension) to feel much better. Good luck if you try it, and keep up the good work!

    Very good! It’s nice to set goals and then meet them. I have been exercising and walking for years but I see myself slowing down a bit, due to arthritis. I’m still going though! I hope you continue to progress, stick with it!
