Gotcha-thanks for the info. I'd say 900 miles is impressive and great no matter how one goes about it. Makes me want to start tracking mileage again-at one point I was walking over 100 miles/month so I know I can get back to that if I so choose.

Every day is a new day, a new chance to succeed. Make the most of this day!

I would classify it as the same as walking/jogging/running but actually I am pushing in a wheelchair as I am paralyzed from an ATV accident so I can not walk anymore. It just means I have to work my arms twice as hard to get the same progress. I also strap weights onto the frame for the added resistance, currently I have an extra 55 pounds but I would not expect anyone else to do something that extreme...lol

But I would not limit anyone else to just walking or running, what ever gets you out and moving so if you want to use a bicycle or roller skates then go for it. It is all about getting the heart rate up in the zone.

Kind of a silly question...but is this walking, cycling, etc? Didn't see anything in the thread that outlined that.

Every day is a new day, a new chance to succeed. Make the most of this day!

It is all about doing what you can and being better than you were yesterday. 600 miles is totally doable for just starting out. If you break it down that is only about 1.6 miles a day if you could do it everyday. But realistically there are going to be days that you can not do it because of the weather or other things going on, plus I like to go every other day to give my body a rest and so I can do other things. I would think if you could try for 5 miles a day once the weather gets better you would do that no problem.

But I just remembered not everyone might do this outside, so if you do this at home on a treadmill or at a gym then the weather is not even a factor for you. Good Luck

I'm a golfer who has gotten no other exercise in three years and needs some more if I am going to get healthier and lighter. I sign up for 600 miles but it will really take an effort for me.

I made my 2014 goal (1000 miles) but I did not make my revised goal (1200 miles) because of the weather, but I am sure I can do it next year easily. So my 2015 goal will be 1300 miles, that is putting in plenty of miles and still having time for everything else. Is anyone else going to bump up their mileage goals?

Interesting question. I just tallied it all up, and so far this year have gone 1068 miles (1718 km) according to my fitbit.

My 2014 goal was 1000 miles since I only did 900 last year, but I just hit 1000 miles in October here so I guess I will have to up my goal...lol. I am going to try for 1200 miles this year. So how is everyone else doing this year?

Completing 600 miles is not that hard as long as you break it down. It is only 50 miles a month assuming you have already started...lol. So far I am at about 300 miles for this year and hopefully I can keep on this track...lol

That's impressive both of you.

My goal is just over 600 miles this year (which is the approx distance from the top of Scotland to the lowest point of England, as the crow flies).

I use a FitBit to track my distance per day. Your post made me look at my totals for 2013 and I just about hit the floor. For 2013, my distance was 1,966.02 miles. So, this year I think I'll shoot for 2,000 miles.

I was shooting for putting in over 900 miles this year but I was 8 miles shy of reaching my goal. But considering the year of taking off for being sick and a few injuries that sidelines me for a while I think I came close enough...lol. Considering I only do my training ever other day at the most so my body can rest, that works out to almost 5 miles a day (if I could have actually gone out ever other day). So hitting 1000 miles for next year should not be a problem...especially with the training I am putting in during the next couple months leading up to completing my first full marathon on March 2nd.

Anyone else tracking their mileage this year?
