Day 4 of 122 Days.....................

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

I got started with exercise at home, using the vacuum hose to clean the spider, dust and cat hair around the ceilings of my house. Drat that long haired cat Rusty!

Finally got in a walk in warm sunlight! I walked to the library to return a book and sat and read today's newspaper. Then I set out on my brisk walk with a small timer. I walked 5 minutes, ran 1 min, then walked 4 mins and ran 1 min until I was too hot and sweaty to run any more.
I put in a total of 75 minutes by the time I got home. Then I went to Curves for my workout. Along the lake I saw many newly dropped walnuts still with their green covers. I also spotted my first woolly caterpillar! On 4th St there is one Ohio Buckeye tree that is dropping it's beautiful brown nuts. At first I had thought they were chestnuts, and got excited! But no, they're inedible. Such a shame!

Naturally, on my way back home, I stopped at my favorite snack place, the split rail fence with the luscious grapes. emoticon

Another good walk! A total of 8636 steps for the walk and 12275 steps and 6.97 miles for the day. WooHoo!

    And how many grapes and walnuts. We used to have an old fashioned walnut tree and us kids would sit out on the concrete steps and crack them. They were difficult to eat sometimes, not as easy as English walnuts.
Congratulations on your walking.

    That's great, Sunny! I did 7 miles yesterday, too. Isn't it amazing how those miles and steps add up. A year ago, I would've never thought I'd be walking this much, routinely.

Day 3 of 122 Days.............

Monday, October 04, 2010

Slept late today to make up for yesterday, otherwise no ill effects! WooHoo!

Today I planned to do a daylight walk, but reality and amazingly shorter days put the kibosh on that idea. I went and worked out at Curves and needed to do a mini walk to Wally's world. I walked there, made my purchases, and continued on my walk thru the shopping center, up, over the Interstate and down the road heading east. I explored a large motel and a conference center with a lovely gazebo in a bricked courtyard. Lovely! Then I crossed the road and headed back across the interstate towards my starting point.

Time - 53 min and 3.6 miles according to my Omron pedometer. GWF recorded only 20 Vigorous minutes versus the 62 minute (Personal Best) vigorous ninutes for yesterday!?! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sunny, isn't if fun to see different things out on a walk. You are doing a great job of exploring.

BTW, I started a thread on the Body Bugg team as a place to post personal bests. People are having fun posting their PR's there. You should post your PR for vigorous activity there!

Day 2 of 122 Days..................

Monday, October 04, 2010

Today was not a day of rest, for sure! My neighbor is letting me use his trailer to haul all my yard waste away to the county compost site. He had left it too close to the street. I had to finagle it a bit, back up my driveway till I had enough room to back my car in without blocking traffic. Then I loaded all my bags of waste into it and what leaves I had.

An aside:- I always like to plant something new each year, last year it was tomatillos. They turned out great, growing in a large pot. This year I tried ground cherries and they are delicious nibbles the size of yesterday's Concord grapes. I nibbled them before I tackled the raspberry project.

Then it was time to cut back and prune my raspberries for the winter. I WAS able to eat about a handfull, the last of the season. I got about 2/3s done and it got too dark to see. I loaded all the trimmings on a tarp and hauled it out of my neighbor's drive and into mine. Then it was time to collect the trash and recycling and get it all to the curb for tomorrow's pickup. I cleaned out the cats' litterboxes also and added that to the trash.

I ate some dinner and then took a chunck of delicious French bread to nibble on my walk. It was full dark by then so I added my reflective gear and a small light and I was off to get my 3 miles in. I went a different direction than before, so no grapes this time. I also hoped to snag a Sunday paper along the way. The route was longer than I thought, but I did find a paper at a SuperAmerica on my way back! The walk 72 min and 62 were Vigorous according to my GWF!

The Link to tonight's walk is huge, but if you copy and paste all of it, it will get you to the map!

I will emoticonwell tonight!

    It WAS a busy day. I'm envious that you live in a county with a county compost place. Getting rid of yard waste is a huge problem for me down in Tennessee. They won't take it in the trash. Next year, I plan to start composing on my property, just to cure the problem.

Way to go on getting the walk in after all that!

Did you sleep well? emoticon

I think you did more work today, then most of us do in a week or month. Then on top of that you walked your 3 miles.
That is awesome, congratulations and I agree, you should rest well tonight.

Thank you for sharing
