Another 10k+ day today and yesterday was even more. I am beginning to be able to tell by how tired I feel.

I got to just over 13K yesterday, after a bit of a slow week (most days 8-9k)

Rob, I am impressed with your running - I can only go maybe 100m at a time still!

School holidays are here now, so will be interesting to see how that goes.  I'd like to take the kids out to Zealandia (bird sanctuary) which will involve a fair bit of walking, and likewise the zoo.  But the rest of the days could be a struggle.  Will have to make sure we walk down to the school playground or the local park a few times.
Only a couple more months until the outdoor pool around the corner reopens after major renovations.

I apparently have been doing progressively less each day for the last three days. 26k, 20k, and 16k today though that is largely a product of the poor weather.

The walking is improving my fitness a bit, I manage to run yesterday for 0.5km without stopping which is quite an improvement. Still don't enjoy running or the feeling of my body as it bounces up and down.
That's a lot of walking. I too didn't like running, but 12 weeks ago I was determined to try. Started with 2min run, 3min walk, repeated for 30minutes. It nearly killed me, but three months on, three runs a week and I can do 4km in 30 minutes without stopping. Just remember baby steps and something is better than nothing. Congratulations on all your success to date xox

Wow Kimmy that is wonderful, well done. That puts my 10k steps into context.
I do a wee jog now and then up or down the field in dog catching or distracting mode but running has never been for me!

Less walking today but 2 hrs stripping wallpaper,  ore of that tomorrow.

Have been on the to all day. Stripping wallpaper, moving stuff round the house, thorough clean of three bare rooms with floorboards ready for next bit.
Only 6000 steps, am amazed, it clearly only measures walking, am pooped tonight.,

DJ, yes, it's sometimes a shame it doesn't always reflect overall activity.  I've been tidying up our garage (AKA junk zone) and I'm tired already, and it's only 11am!  Hope you sleep well for it.

Well almost 10k again tonight and lots of ironing. Am pooped!.
Had a little accident last night in the dark fell into a small trench while too busy looking at the amazing stars, no light pollution here. Serves me right, Big bruises on left anterior thigh and stiff and tired all over.

Stand still next time DJ, hope your aches and pains go away soon. The stars must have been something else for you to forget to look where you were stepping.

Oh dear DJ, I hope you're feeling better :( :-*

I'm so proud of you all, keep up the awesome work :D

I've been walking when I can, between work and other things. Been having some trouble with shin splints though :P
