update on the walk toward the

Thursday, May 23, 2013

OK...so here is my mileage so far on my walk/run toward the monks at the Abbey at Subiaco, Arkansas (a total of 205 miles from my house), and a link to the blog I wrote that tells the whole story (for those of you who may not know what I'm talking about).


4/29/2013: 207 - 2 = 205 (I wonder how much thinner and healthier I will be when I finally arrive?)
5/07/2013: 205 - 2 = 203 (I'm back from out of state and back on my virtual party trip.)
5/09/2013: 203 - 2 = 201 emoticon
5/11/2013: 201 - 1.6 = 199.4 (Big dogs loose on property at corner; didn't want to go near them to finish 2 miles and don't know the mile markers to make it up if I walk the opposite direction)
5/14/2013: 199.4 - 2.4 = 197
5/16/2013: rained out
5/17/2013: 197 - 2.5 = 194.5
5/19/2013: 194.5 - 2.8 = 191.7
5/21/2013: 191.7 - 2.4 = 189.3
5/23/2013: 189.3 - 3.7 = 185.6
5/27/2013: 185.6 - 2.5 = 183.1 (I think I had a Fibro flare after the last walk/run. And Saturday, I had a reaction to the sun while I was mowing, so no walking for several days until today. It feels good to finally be back out there!)
5/28/2013: 183.1 - 2.5 = 180.6
5/29/2013: 180.6 - 2.5 = 178.1 (28.9 miles so far) emoticon
5/30/2013: thunderstorms and tornado watch...didn't run
5/31/2013: 178.1 - 2.5 = 175.6

Hmmm...19.4 miles so far, BUT... (update: 5/31/2013...31.4 miles so far)

I'm getting stronger and going farther each day and week that I go out, so these miles toward Subiaco will begin to add up much faster now. In the next couple of weeks or so, I will be clicking off about 15 miles per week (5 miles per day/3 times per week is my goal). I'm really excited about that! I don't know if I'll ever become a runner, but that's ok. I can still walk for looooong distances with intervals of running, even if I never run the entire distance. emoticon

    It's really beautiful! I looked up images on the Internet. I'm doing a walk too--It's been almost two years. Moscow, Russia to Lucca, Italy.
