Woohoo! The boot is off and now am wearing gym shoes. She told me to walk but not a 4-mile walk yet. Maybe in a couple of weeks. But the X-ray still showed the fracture but very small. It didn't hurt when she touched my foot; not like it was 8 weeks ago! In a few weeks, I'll be out out walking. I have A LOT to catch up to do before summer leaves. emoticon

Well, Tuesday is the day I see the doctor and hopefully she will let me walk again. I've had this boot on for 8 weeks and been watching my summer go bye-bye. At least she told me a week before the appt I'm supposed to "walk" on it with boot. So with the help of crutches, I've been walking up & down the driveway. I did some vacuuming, while my hubby was yelling over it he was going to do it. I've been getting bored. Hope you all are having a great weekend.

I feel so much better I was able to hike and find two geocaches on Saturday.
Joffre lakes -- a 11 km trail with a 400 m gain to reach the high 1600m high point.
began at 12:30 arrived at the far end of the third lake at 4 where I found my second cache turned around and arrived at the car at 6 pm.

I am feeling guilty and righty so - I have not been walking much - and I am one of the leaders on this forum - I should be setting the example.
Yes I work ten hours per day or longer most days but I do get an afternoon break.
I feel it I am getting larger - my bounce in my step is missing - energy is lacking --- so I must do something about it. This afternoon in the 30 c. Temperatures with the sun bearing down I went for a walk to the beach.
Now only to do it every day ,,,,,,

Well you at least can go outside and relax and not feel guilty about not walking. I had to spend 9 months in bed after my car accident with no walking... So I understand

I saw the doctor today and the foot is healing nicely. No surgery to be done. The only bad part is I have to wear the boot another FOUR WEEKS!!! My summer is 1/2 over. I am hoping after that she will say go walk and for the next three months I have before winter arrives, I am going to walk it on the trails or treadmill. I have been doing other exercises for the upper part. emoticon

Well I'm still in this boot and going crazy! I get to see the doctor Tuesday and hopefully it will be good news. I've been "walking" up & down the driveway with the crutches. Oh how I am so bored and restless. Have a good week.

The summer heat at times is so zapping of theme grey and we have just started - I was counting the spring days leading into summer - get out and walk though because if we loose the ability to do so it will be so difficult to get back to it

Morning. I've been walking again and it felt good to do it. Mother Nature seems to be controlling her bi-polar. Weather was either snowing, raining, sleeting, to sunny and warm.

Yesterday, I tripped & fell in my yard after doing yard work. My husband called the paramedics since I couldn't get up and was passing out. It ended up I have a temporary cast because my foot is broken. This is making me so mad because now I can't go out and walk. I can now only hobble to the bathroom and recliner. emoticon

So think of me while walking...add an extra mile to your walk for me! Have a safe holiday weekend. emoticon

Thank you Vicki, the same to you! It is looking like we are the only ones about. Where and when are you walking? I am walking back home from work. It is just practical as I like to walk with a purpose in mind. What about you!

I have just joined this team. I am living in Auckland New Zealand and it is very late autumn here. I am walking from my office to my home 3x per week but want to increase it to 4x per week. It is 10 km or 6.21 miles a shot. I have a Suunto heart rate monitor and I tract distance with GPS and not steps. Our winter is also our rainy season so a lot of my walking will depend on weather.

Walking the walk. I have been walking in the heat of the afternoon 2-4 while taking my afternoon break from cooking. It is so hot but this is the only time I can walk unless I wait till the end of the day and the. I am just so exhausted that I won.t do it.
I measured it with the car .... 4 km one way to the single lane bridge so I know the distance.
8 km round trip and it usually takes just under the two hours - I could go faster but Dalhouise is with me and he has problems if I go any faster.

Craziness - that would describe me- I went out walking and hiking again for hours and hours yesterday. Some was easy walking in the city of Vancouver and then I went back to the rugged trails of Lighthouse Park where I climbed hills and descended mountains... then because I missed a couple of caches I redid parts that I had past by mistake. Noni was so tired near the end that she stayed in the car as I rehiked.
Not only that before we went home I stopped at another Park and walked around it as well enjoying the scenery - it was amazing...
Today my body is screaming at me - don't push it so much in one day - do more everyday not all at once..
You know I will not listen ....

there is something special about being out in the rain and standing still and watching rain drip form your wide brim hat.
I was out walking and geo caching in the pouring rain yesterday and I came to this conclusion as I signed the log book - with head tilted down to sign the log book I watched the water drip off of my hat and I felt satisfied and happy.

I have this book "Best Hikes and Walks of Southwestern British Columbia" and my goal is to hike as many of these hikes as possible in 2014
This hike is listed as easy - OK it was easy but very long - Noni and Dalhouise and I started at Park Royal and walked all the way to the Capilano Lake and Cleveland Dam and over to the hatchery and then back to the parked car.
Noni pedometer read 25,000 steps - about 12 miles and it took us about six and half hours.
-- OK we stopped to take pictures and I looked for Geo caches and of course just to look around and enjoy the scenery.

another weekend repeats it self - but this time I went out for a walk into the cold as an Arctic front comes swooping in. So much for the whispering s of spring.
Soon enough it will be over I am guessing this is the last of winter -- even though I have said this a couple of times already - this is it - winter is over - done no more ..

I have been out and about around the pond and estuary these days and one can't help but notice that the increase in bird songs and chirps not to mention the actual flutter of wings.
Because of my mother - when I was a little boy she would ask every spring for me to find some pussy willows for her and now when I am out and about I am seeing them.
Spring is definitely whispering it's arrival now.

I became dissapointed yesterday.. I tried to put 11 minutes of jogging into my walk and it hurt my knees..

Me thinks I may have to just stick with walking, swimming and hiking if I'm going to save the ol' knees. It's kind of a wake up call that says "Hey you're 50"!!

But I'm very mobil and want to be forever!! and who knows maybe one of these days or perhaps never but I intend on keeping moving!!

As for birding..
Yes, I'd like to learn more about that.. I did a bit when I was young but know so little about birds.

I also did my first back yard bird count last weekend.

Today when I hiked around the pond I was to identify my first Varied Thrush. At first I thought it was an American Robin - but looking through the binoculars I seen the orange striped bars on the wings and over the eye.and a black throat - so to the books I went when I got home - I brought a pen and note book with me to write my observations, and I took a picture too - but that did not turn out so well - but it is clear enough to compare with the book.

I had Dalhouise with me - I dropped his lease on the trail - some times I let him run free at the pond - i had to stop and back track - of all places I had dropped the lease right at the beginning of the trail where I had freed Dalhouise. I thought I had it tucked under my arm -- but it was the empty camera case -- at this place is where I took the camera out of the case to hang around my neck - too many things - hiking pole - binoculars - camera - lease all disrupting my concentration as I look at eagles and other birds.

to top that off it began to rain and then rained harder before I could get back home - but it was a good walk

I went hiking with my friend on the Chief a hike to the First Peak: 1.5-kilometre trail with an elevation gain of 540 metres. (1771.65 feet)
- Next day - I am a little sore but doing well - not going to tackle the other peaks for a few weeks though..

It is cold out side - I hope you have lots of bird seed in your bird feeders.
I had a Steller Jay and a House sparrow - a Starling come to my balcony for the first time today.
I had the regular visitors of Juncos - Chickadees - Northern Flickers come - and so I was surprised to see these newbe's.. It is cold -7c and wind chill ----- that is cold for my area.
I went outside to walk the dog and seen several American robins as i stepped out of the condo door into the cold.
Walking around the pond that is very frozen over today with only a small channel open I spotted two Bald Eagles and sever Mallard Ducks.
I walked a little further along the dike and was able to take pictures of the Common Mergansers female and male - Golden-eye ducks - Gulls - Canadian Geese - Crows.

Did I mention that it is cold - I was dressed warmly but my face was cold as I walked in the Arctic wind..

Grey skies and cool - cool temperatures did not stop me from today's walk
Two bald Eagles sitting in a tree - one was a mature and the other immature. My thoughts - is one a male waiting for a female to mature - OR - is one a parent staying with a sick young one.
Most of the eagles have left the area.
Makes one wonder................

.Walking closer to the pond I find it mostly frozen over - but still enough open channels to keep the ducks happy

I could only find two female Hooded Mergansers that were swimming around with the mallard ducks

Looking up again I spotted the Blue Heron at first I thought it was another eagle - but looking through the binoculars it became obvious it was a Heron. It has the same shape as a perched eagle high up in the upper tree branches.

Not very sunny, but out the door I go back to the Estuary to get some walking in 2 hours worth.
I end my hike with a light drizzle falling - but still I feel revived - happy - joyful - content.

Blue herons
Bald Eagles
Mallard Ducks
an unknown duck to me
Common Mergansers
Common Goldeneyes
Gulls
other unknown song birds fluttering about in the trees
a Cormorant - I think Pelagic Cormorant not the Brant's Cormorant

over all I am happy

Dalhouise has been sitting by the balcony glass door looking out side showing no intentions that he wants to go outside to do business. I wait around 12:30 I decide he needs to go out and I prepare my self by dressing with my rain pants and coat hat and shoes and put on Dalhouise's rain coat on him. I tell Noni I should not be too long that was a mistake - an hour and half later I return I was enjoying the walk immensely - I was warm and dry totally indulging in the moment of pleasure as rain fell all around me. I could keep walking I was really enjoying this walk but I know Noni is preparing lunch so I had better go back home.

Well- that was an early morning thought - the actual truth was I did go out side and Yes I hiked two hours.. Noni is now complaining she is sore - Dalhouise has been doing a lot of sleeping - I am OK the bottom my feet feel a little tender but no muscle soreness. My shoes do not do well on the pavement or the hard surfaces in the malls I have concluded. Today we hiked on both the hard pavement of side walks and roads and the cushion of pebble stones along a path.
-- in the rain at that..

What is wrong with me - I just can't get up early and go outside for a walk. Later Dalhouise will force me out and even now as I write this I am thinking it should only be a short walk - I have No motivation to walk -- I know once I start I will probably change my mind and go at it full gusto - but right now I sit in my favorite chair with feet on the foot stool shared with Dalhouise being lazy.

Rain or shine I have said it before Dalhouise forces me outside - the question is for how long and how far.
Today in heavy rain we walked for over 80 minutes. I took a route that last year took over two hours and today well 80 minutes - my speed must had picked up...
My new Arc'teryx sure had it's workout.

Waddling or walking is now my lot in life --
I stopped doing my daily walks only to sauntering around the pond with Dalhouise and eating a lot of Noni's baking - and now the scale shouts justice is served...

- I am so unpleased with my choices and decisions of late - but that is life...

How do you determine the difference between a hike and a walk?
I hiked/ walk around the pond - gulf course meanderings among streams, tributaries, creeks and so many types of trees and brush. Lots of unknown identities of birds fluttering about eagles - gulls flying or perched along my route.
Just me and my dog - walking / hiking at a fast pace in the pouring rain.
Loving life........

They like people? Lol Not sure. It is an interesting observation, though.

I saw lots of fall leaves today: gold, red, brown, yellow, and red/gold. It was cloudy today, and only a slight breeze until I got about 1/2 a mile from home. Then the wind suddenly picked up and the temp dropped about 10 degrees. I just made it inside before it started raining.

Seen over 9 mallard ducks - 1 house sparrow - 2 Eastern Towhee - 1 Hooded Merganser when I took Dalhouise out for his morning walk.
Interesting there is more wildlife in my neighborhood surrounded by highways and housing than in the Provincial Park

You have thoughts on why this is so??????????

Normally I head out the door around ten AM - but today I was up a little earlier and so at nine I started getting dress to go out side when my wife asked if I wanted her to come too. Of course - but hurry up and get dressed as I am almost ready now..
WE take a 45 minute walk around the pond - across the river and after a short jaunt on paved sidewalks stepped gingerly down the embankment into more woods after crossing the river on another bridge.
The SUN is shinning - Oh what a blessing to walk in the sun holding my lovers hand,

Stopped to look at more spawning salmon - looked up and counted twenty Canadian Geese in flight honking loudly.

I am surprised how much walking I am getting in these days - rain or shine.
Gotta love the dog who wants to get outside and won't take NO for an answer.
I enjoy these times- rain or shine.

Great idea to hike to get those steps in -- I just walked/ hiked two hours.
Just in time getting home as it began to sprinkle as I approached the condo.

Good morning everyone,

It is raining here in Oregon but I am going for a hike. Plan to get most of my 10,000 steps on the trails today. Weekends are difficult for me, I plan on eating less and move more.

Hi JD, I agree with you, some of the SP groups are inactive which is lame for an online program.

I have a Fitbit it is a great motivator. My daily goal is to walk 10,000 steps per day. At 4 PM I do a step check, if under 10,000 I get up and walk. I also go to Jazzercise classes 3 times per week. Making ME a priority has been a growth experience this past year.

On my walk today in the light drizzle, I observed several Canadian Geese in flight and a bushy tailed Grey squirrel scurrying up a tree, but didn't see any eagles. Walking around the pond in some sections it smelled of rotten salmon from the last run in September. I was looking for ducks or other pond birds but none were to be found.

Welcome to the team JD...
I am walking again because the dog needs his walk. At camp for the last 6 months we just opened the door and he went out to do his thing. Now that we are back in the city and in the confines of the condo with so many rules and regulations I have to walk him - usually three - four times a day for at least 20 - 30 minutes per time.
he is getting old so the pace is not so fast now - but I will do my own walk to fix that I hope once a day - that is my plan at the moment..

Hi, I just joined this team. It seems pretty active which is great! So many spark teams are dead now.

I recently started walking again for exercise. I became really motivated thursday when I reconnected with an old friend. About 8 miles was walked thursday and then again on friday. We have not walked since cause of scheduled , I think we will end up walking togather maybe 2 or 3 days a week. When on my own I walk the neighborhood behind me now.

Anyone use 'MapMyWalk" app? I downloaded this on one of my 7 mile walks, amazing it helps motivate me!!! Plus I can walk ALMOST anywhere cause it's GPS and will show me where I was so I can also retrace my steps to get home.

Over the weekend I walked a total of just over 3 miles with my dog.

Today I am about to have breakfast and set out for a long walk, then come back and get my dog and take her on a walk.

JD

Walked with a friend today to the big supermarket. I needed to get ice cream for my hubby and of course got some for me. I will have a small bowl about 1 cup/2 servings for a snack.

Marty good job taking your walk hope you get to do it again soon. I am planning to walk to the big supermarket a mile away today. I make this walk at least once a week. I have a nice bargain store right across the street from me but they don't have every thing I need. I need some BQ sauce and I like a certain brand, Kraft, that the bargain store does not have. I tried the kind they do have and hubby said it was okay but I sure did not like it.
