Walking And Biking?


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I wear my pedometer faithfully and ride a stationary bike 4 or 5 times a week. At the end of the day, I figure out how many miles I've traveled and trace the miles on a map. It's exciting to reach a new state and it keeps me going.

I'm more of a walker, but when I go to the gym, I try in incorporate bike, treadmill, weights.....everything I can work with! My all time fave is the pool! Finding the right exercise, keeps us going, and that is the best way to keep at it! Great doing your workout!

ANNETTEMARIE63 3/9/2013 8:43:00 PM

    love this idea. I will see how long it takes for me to take a virtual trip from where I live in Jacksonville to my cousins in PA and than on to my different locations in Michigan. I think it would be nicer to visit everyone in real life but this will be fun.
BLUJADED 3/9/2013 6:42:00 PM

    A great idea - reminds me of Stephen King's short story, The Stationary Bike from Just After Sunset. Makes me want to get a map!

GINGERVISTA 3/9/2013 11:38:00 AM

    I don't own a car, so I bike & (mostly) walk the majority of times, including 3 mile round-trip walk to work. I LOVE that idea! I might have reached one of the coasts by now! lol! emoticon

    What a fun way to track your miles!
KATEM200 10/1/2012 8:41:00 PM

    Check out this website. It's not fancy, but it lets you track your progress in a cross-country trip. You put your miles in, and it shows you a picture of where you are on a map.
