103 miles along the path. Stayed at The Forsaken Inn last night. Seems that things may be getting more rugged up ahead.

SAVINARED, conversion makes sense. It's a pity, though, that we don't all speak the same "length language"!

96 miles along the road with Bilbo. Have left The Prancing Pony and are traveling through Chetwood on our way to The Forsaken Inn. Not a promising-sounding name, that....

“Rivendell!” said Frodo. ”Very good: I will go east, and I will make for Rivendell. I will take Sam to visit the elves; he will be delighted.” He spoke lightly; but his heart was moved suddenly with a desire to see the house of Elrond Halfelven, and breathe the air of that deep valley where many of the Fair Folk still dwelt in peace. - Fellowship of the Ring

The internet information is definitely more about Lord of the Rings. I am doing the Hobbit now because I had finished LotR. When I finish the Hobbit, I will certainly go back to the original walk and do it again.

Well, I've decided to walk with Frodo and Sam. It seems that there is more about the "Lord of the Rings" on the internet than "The Hobbit", and I would like to read along with walk the path.

I logged 3.3 miles for a total of 12.9 miles. This takes me through Tookland and along the Stock Road. At the 10 mile mark we had a frugal supper, then walked on, for it was a clear and starlit night. I have 144.1 miles to reach Rivendell.

Thank you for the kind thoughts. We won't know what the treatment evaluation is until Tuesday or Wednesday. It's making just getting up and facing the day very hard.

I did swim yesterday. I think I'm going to like swimming even more than usual through this, because when I'm swimming I can't really think about anything much beyond counting my laps and concentrating on my form. I swam over a mile. Between that and walking the dog, I have just left the Bridge Inn and headed into Buckland. 46 miles so far.

I am walking with Bilbo from Bag End to Rivendell. I have walked a whopping 9.6 miles so far this week. I figure I am just past Three-Farthing Stone, looking to camp soon.

397 - 9.6 = 390.4 miles to go to Rivendell

I finally did get registered on the EowynChallenge.net...yea

MissG....I am so sorry for your little goddaughter. It is so sad that the little ones have to face that dreaded disease. I pray that there is something more to be done for her. I also pray that you and her family have the strength necessary to get through this with her. Please keep us informed.

SASSIFRASSTEA, bummer about not being able to register. I wish I had some "say" at the site and could help, but I'm just a member.

I am battling a new set of orcs just now. My 5-year-old goddaughter (who might as well be a granddaughter, that's how close we are to this family) was diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer in August, and even though she's had surgery, radiation, and is undergoing chemotherapy, yesterday her MRI showed that the cancer has returned, and returned in a different part of her brain. She is being evaluated at the beginning of next week, but at this point no one is sure if it can be further treated. If not, she will only live for a couple more months. I am beyond devastated.

Miss G, Congratulations on finishing the long trek with Frodo and Sam. I am starting out on the Hobbit. Hope to see you along the way. I have tried to register on the Eowyn challenge sight but I keep getting an error. So I guess I will keep up with my mileage without it.

1.5 miles today... All of the obstacles, heart, knee, rain and heat were not an issue for the first time in a long time.

I missed an out of town wedding this past weekend because of angina and swollen knee mid-week but this week is looking better.

Rick, it's good to hear from you. Sorry that you are still struggling with your health.

My life has been a series of crises, but since we got a puppy I have been walking at least a couple miles a day.

Well I have not posted on this team for a while because my walking this year has been very little, angina, weather and weak knee all taking turns limiting any progress.

I log on to Spark every day but if I have not walked, I do not post here to remind me and everyone else that I am not making progress, but I am still around...

With the record amount of rain we have had here this year and the contractors that have been at the house almost every day since May 15th, walking this year has taken a backseat. I also have the angina to deal with but I still have managed to get down to work on the RR for great outdoor exercise about 2 days every other week.

The contractors leave about 2:00 but then it is 90°... emoticon

Spent two full days working at the railroad, first time since my heart surgery a year ago so I am pretty much recovered from that. I still cannot stay on my feet really long periods and if I want to walk much, I need to use my cane; that may not improve and mileage will e less than I really want...

Thank you! I'm ready for another day on the journey. I found a comfy little cave to rest up in last night because my bad ankle was a bit swollen and hurting.

The mighty oak was once just a little nut that stood its ground.

Hi, I'm kind of new here. So far this week I've walked 15.5 miles.

The weather this year is really dragging on me! But I'm on the treadmill right now, walking out a couple miles in addition to the miles I did in the gym this morning.

Yesterday was another day with a lot of time on my feet; more than the days I would walk for exercise. The weather will be a factor for a few more weeks but when we go to a larger town, we are walking through stores a lot, which is hard on my knee.

Good luck with it Rick. You're a trier! emoticon emoticon

I have only just realised that I am not recording the miles I should be ... I think I'm losing miles as there are lots of exercises I do that I don't account for. I know, I know ... never finish a sentence with a preposition..bwah! I just can't be bothered at the moment as I am hot and tired and typing as fast as I can so I can get out of this hot and stuffy sunroom.

Yesterday seemed like a marathon walking event with all of the walking we did while shopping; over two hours, which was very hard on my knee and feet.

I do not post unless I make some progress, so you can see I am not really making daily progress yet; more likely to be "ever other day"...

Yesterday was my first day back to work on the railroad; what many observers would call it a park train. Spent 5˝ hours laying track, which is a lot of work, all on my feet, though I had to pace myself a lot so I would last the entire time.

Finally got over the cold and the weather is 20°above normal, I finally got outside to walk. Just a mile but a good start. The knee complained all night but that is normal for me. Cannot walk today but will get outdoor exercise Friday...

Get well soon Rick and take it easy till then!
Sorry I have not been on here for a while.
I have been walking at least 3 miles every day since I was last here. I am planning to walk further now my toe is a little better. But today it was really playing up. I still managed my 3 miles, though. Not including my other exercise which was not a lot today!

Finally started my Day One "officially" yesterday. The sidewalks and roads were still a bit snowy and icy, but my husband and I managed 30 minutes.
emoticon

It was a great way to get warmed up for the rest of my workout. I changed out of my heavy boots into workout gear and did a Zumba routine (for first time ever) and Power Yoga/Pilates (fairly new to me still). I actually worked up a sweat! When I do a simple "Walk Away the Pounds" video I never break out in a sweat, but dancing and jumping around for Zumba, and getting that "yoga burn" whooped my butt! I pretty much slept like a baby.

The progress thread has migrated to the monthly threads, so we are still logging, just not in this thread. Outdoor exercise is definitely a challenge at this time of year. Hang in there.

I started this thread almost two years ago and it died out in June, which is when I had my heart surgery. To me it was my daily motivation to walk enough to post about.

It is only going to be a high of 37° here today, if we are lucky, so outdoor walking may be out of reach for now.

Only 1 mile yesterday, but the workout was primarily yoga and strength training. I'm thinking that because it was a kind of icky day, weather-wise, I didn't really want to leave The Forsaken Inn just yet. ;)

Wow, it's been a while since I have commented on this thread! I've been "on horseback" with the Rohirrim and have covered about 550 miles--only 26 miles from Minas Tirith.
