Wow, what a week. I got lost going up the trail, and had to backtrack and catch up on Thursday with the group! By Friday I was so sore, I had to take a day off to rest up and let my mind and body recuperate. But the scenery is so beautiful and days are so sunny, it is so refreshing to sit here and just soak it all in. I can hardly wait to see what the next leg of the Trek will bring us to. Let's go, I am ready!

NOTE: I am putting up a week long template since I have been asked for it – however I will be satisfied if you post once during the week – and update the whole week at once – OR if you blog on the trek at least once.in the week.
This is only one way of recording your compliance with the challenge – there are many others – or you may use parts of my template – depending on you!!

To complete the Rocky Mountains Challenge Week 2, you will need to walk (regular or treadmill), chair march, run, or use a combo of all each day… whatever works best way for you

No matter what method you choose, you NEED TO COUNT YOUR STEPS. Remember, you don’t have to do the steps all at once, you can do them over the course of the day, but they MUST be done during that particular day. And you are allowed to catch up if you fall behind.

IMPORTANT: There is one rule to this challenge – you may NOT go ahead in the trail – no matter how many steps you take in the day, ONLY the stated, allowed number of steps are to count towards the challenge – extra steps should be recorded as well, but as sightseeing steps!!!

Since there are so many of us of various levels of ability and mobility, I have decided to have 4 groups of walkers. Please SELECT the GROUP that best suits your ability, but in making a selection, remember this should challenge your own ability.

GROUP 1 – limit to under 800 steps daily for the whole 8 weeks. Suitable for those who are just starting
GROUP 2 – Suitable for those who are more capable and have been either walking or chair marching for a time
GROUP 3 – Suitable for those who walk long distances in comfort
GROUP 4 - Suitable for Wheelchair/non-walking members ONLY
Every day this week – morning –
1 – Lift one leg – getting the foot as far off the ground as possible– first with knee bent –– then with the knee straight but relaxed (don’t lock it) as if you are kicking something –do each movement at least 10 times with each leg - repeat with other leg Try for at least 5 sets with each leg, with a rest between each set.
AND
With left arm – Hold a 1 lb weight in your hand – use a can of food, a dumbbell or a bottle of water – start with hand by your left shoulder and push your hand forward until the arm is straight with elbow relaxed (do not lock the elbow) Repeat 10 times then repeat with right arm. Try for at least 5 sets with each arm, with a rest between sets
Every day this week – afternoon – Repeat the morning exercises

ALL GROUPS - Extra steps you do are to be logged as exploring or sightseeing

You do not have to be in the same group this week as last week – BUT . Do not change GROUPS during the week

NOTE: Once you have selected your group and you start the Challenge, you come to THIS thread and POST at least ONCE in the week . If you come more often please GO TO YOUR OWN PERSONAL COMMENT and EDIT your comment with the new information. Remember to:

1) STATE THE GROUP YOU ARE IN
2) TELL US the NUMBER OF STEPS YOU HAVE COMPLETED
3) TELL US HOW YOU ARE GETTING ON: what you saw on the way, whether you are getting to the camp sites, what you saw on the way, what you had for food, and whether you are enjoying the trek!!
NOTE:.You will only be eligible to claim a Goodie if you post at least once in the week and complete all your weekly steps!!
OR
If you would prefer to write a blog on your Week 2 Trek adventures – please do so – BUT please let me know when you have done this so that I can read it

I have been thrilled and so pleased by some of the wonderful descriptions, and blogs of the trek so far – they are what make the time I spent getting it together worthwhile!! Thank you!!-

Week 2:
A trail starting in The Falls River area starting at Sheep Lakes. You can find the map in the photo section off our team page (look on the right-hand side of the team page and UNDER the Huddle button – Photos is in red – click on this and the Week 2 map is there).

We will then go on to Gem lake for the night. Take a lovely swim in the icy cool crystal clear lake!!
Gem Lake
"The shallow waters of Gem Lake are cradled high among the rounded granite domes of Lumpy Ridge. Untouched by glaciation, this outcrop of 1.8 billion-year-old granite has been sculpted by wind and chemical erosion into a backbone-like ridge. Signs of these erosional forces--pillars, potholes, and balanced rocks--appear midway along the trail to Gem Lake. Other highpoints include spectacular views of the Estes Valley and Continental Divide, and a curious balanced rock called Paul Bunyan's Boot. Gem Lake's elevation is 8,800 feet
