It's another sunny day here in western Iowa, so I went outside for my workout. I was able to get in a longer walk/jog since I don't have to work tonight. I went four miles in 67 minutes: 0.5 mile walk, 0.75 mile jog, 0.75 mile walk, 1 mile jog, 1 mile walk.
I took a look at my mileage tracker today. I love tracking my miles. This includes walking, jogging, bicycling, and elliptical. On the elliptical, I look at how fast I've gone and calculate the equivalent miles from walking or jogging. My elliptical mileage is way off. A lot of times, 30 min on the elliptical equals around 2 miles or a 15 min mile by my calculations.
This year I have traveled 522 miles on foot, and that's just my exercise miles. That doesn't include just walking around all day. Here are some interesting distances to put this in perspective: (from my town)
to Chicago, IL-461 miles
to St. Louis, MO- 454 miles
to Twin Cities-372 miles
to Denver, CO- 563 miles
to Kalamazoo, MI-591 miles (I have relatives up there)
All the little 10 minute + walks and jogs have added up over the year!
