There's a website called mapmyrun.com - you can create a login or use Facebook to log in. Then you just put in your address or wherever you started from and you can click on map to make points which ultimately calculate your route. It's pretty cool.

I do this just about daily...lol. Where I live at, you'd understand. Of course, I have my 2 inhalers attached to me like a child's mittens emoticon

I had a friend drive the 2 routes I walk here in the toolies. I can walk 2 miles in 48 -50 minutes. At age 65, I get worried about getting hit.

Today, I will be walking for about 70 minutes. I wish I could check mileage here but it's the ritzy town next to us. Walking/exercise trail is so fancy, you can't even get information without a smart phone. But it's close to my son's college and I can walk there 2 days a week.
Also he starts his other class tomorrow, that is right next to a different park, it's a longer class, I am going to be able to walk at least 90 minutes there 2 days a week.

I did 30 minutes a few days ago and then again yesterday. For yesterday's I am quite stoked to say I did 2.25 miles in 36 minutes. Normally, even if I manage to get a mile less than 18 minutes, it involves running and in the end will always average out to 18-20 minute miles. I couldnt believe I did 2 consecutive miles in less than 18 minutes. I was pushing for a 3rd, but my 5 year old needed to visit the potty lol

I want to jump into this challenge as well. i am on vacation over the next week. I did walk 3 miles on Saturday and I am afraid I overdid it. My back is bothering me again. I am going to work out every day over this next week. I want to start working on my core in the hopes that it will help my back. I know I have to be careful so that I don't do any further injury to it. But, I have to get this weight off. I think it will help my back.

Peace,
Barbara

I'm jumping on this challenge! I even signed up for a 5K next month to give myself a goal for walking and jogging 2-3 times a week. Today I did intervals for 1.6 miles in 26 minutes.

Alrighty, I'm jumping in on this challenge, too! I've been trying to get lots of walking in, but only been averaging like once a week. Maybe making it an actual challenge goal will motivate me to get out and do it more often! Plus, I'm doing a 5k race in a few days, the extra walking will be good practice!

I have joined in on this challenge. My calorie intake is below 1200-1400 per day. And I'm still not losing weight. So that means the dreaded exercising. Walking 30 minutes 2x per week sounds like a reasonable goal!

JENNYMOMMA3, I think I am going to join you in this goal. We got a brand new week ahead of us. I live in New England & with you, also have the cold weather as a challenge & I absolutely HATE mall walking. I may just have to get out of my own way with that one if I want to get this done & get back on track!

Let's post our weekly (or more) results here.

Good luck!

I'm in. This seems like an easy goal, though it may be challenging for me because here in Indiana it is getting much colder. I do not like cold weather and avoid going out as much as possible.

When the "Other Goals" page comes up it should list the week up on top and there should be a check box for each day. Then you check each day as you complete the requirement. Hope that helps.

I seriously misunderstood this page - I read "Goals" as "Promises" and "Tracking" as "Keeping Promises" -- so I saw this page as where to mark my resolutions, not track their progress. Still not sure how this page updates, as there are no dates associated with the check boxes.

I just want to know where I check it off or insert the minutes. Still behind the curve on some of the SP tools.

And I know you sent me an email on how to use one of them, and it is my fault I have not yet gone through it and tried to work it... but not my fault I've been kept so bloody busy. I'm losing one of my many jobs June 10 -- either they elect someone else or I close the organization, which would be a shame.

Um, I asked how you were going to track this. I have been walking a minimum of 4 hours a week for the last month, and about 8 hours this week. Whatever tracking systems are on Spark don't seem to want to work for me.

I've been keeping up, even with a twisted ankle... riding my bike does not put nearly the amount of stress on my ankle and walking. I have noticed my shoe soles are falling apart, sure hope I can find some money for new shoes soon.
