Please, please - this challenge is meant to be FUN!!

I will make sure you understand it on 3rd Sept when I enter it up - and I will be on my computer to answer questions!!
The first weeks trek is structured as an easier warm up - and to introduce the concept to you - after that you will understand fully.

The bottom line is - I nominate the steps required each day - for each level - you do that number or more to complete the challenge!!

The maps with the route and the video links and photo links are only for your interest - so you can imagine where you are going!! They are NOT necessary reading!!

So - please keep it as FUN!! and stop worrying!!

Everyone smiles in the same language.

Don't worry at present about which level - you may even need to change week to week - when I post the trail notes for each trail each week - the required steps each day at each level will be on them - decide then!!
All you need do is nominate thelevel when you check in to say you have completed the trail each day/week

Thank You, EMMABE1. For now I will be counting my steps like you explained. I will do five minute counts over the next few day to see what my average is. Does the meter work for chair marching? My thoughts is that it wouldn't but maybe I am wrong. If it does I will order one.

The Sparkpeople shop has a pedometer for $11.50 -
www.sparkpeoplestore.com/product.cfm
?u
id=612135&context=category&showInactR>ive=N

and I'm sure they are easily available in other shops too

But also - if you count the number of steps you do over say 5 min or 10 min - walking at your normal pace - you can use that figure to calculate the time you need to do the number of steps required each day!!
This method works for Chair Marching also.

NOTE: This challenge will start on 4th September - THIS THREAD IS TO SIGN UP ONLY!!

This is a sign up thread for a challenge that will start on 4th September,
Full details will follow each week but the main idea is:

Chair Marching or Walking challenge - as long as you can count steps, no matter howyou do them, you can do this challenge.

I thought that for the next 2 months – September and October – we might have a different sort of challenge. This is a virtual challenge so one or two details have been altered slightly to fit in
I have set 3 levels of steps so It is not too hard for most of you - the number of steps in any day will vary but never more than 800, in the easiest level - there will be 2 more challenging levels also for the walkers among us. You will be surprised how quickly you can cover the number of steps, and you can do the steps in one lot or in several lots through the day..

I thought it might be rather fun to actually get somewhere with our marching – - so I thought we might “walk” round one of your magnificent National Parks.
I have always wanted to visit the Rocky Mountains – so – we are going to e-walk the Rocky Mountains Park
You can find more details on the park at
www.nps.gov/romo/index.htm
You can find a detailed map of the Rocky Mountains National Park at
www.nps.gov/romo/planyourvisit/uploa
d/
detailedmapa.pdf


For this challenge – you can either Chair march or walk or use a combination of both – but you will need to count steps that you do. The best way of doing this is a pedometer – but you can count your steps in any way you choose.

Every week I will give you a new trail to take, and give you the main route details and distances.

You can tell us whether you make the destination every evening – and what you saw on the way. You could also write a blog at the end of the 8 weeks telling us about the walking adventure and maybe include pictures (from the web) and tell us so we can all read about it!! Remember this is a virtual challenge – so use your imagination!!

I wonder how many of you can complete all of the trails. Those who completes a whole week trail – can claim a goodie from me – and anyone who completes all 8 challenges can claim a special goodie!!
