Mileage Monday

November 18, 2013 Leave a comment

Feeling a lot less sluggish than I was last week. I am glad I took last weekend off from exercise. I am also taking today (Sunday) off. It’s important to take days off every now and then or it can you can get run down. Haven’t made up my workout schedule for the week yet, but it might just be random. I am planning on strength training Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but cardio might just be whatever I do and whenever I do it. My niece (“K”) is down this week, and we’re planning on a bike ride Monday through Friday. Might squeeze in something else during the week.

Here are some more pictures from the virtual walk site. Since last week’s post, I’ve passed through Vincent, KY in Owsley county. I have about 38 miles until I reach Irvine, KY in Lee county.

Hmmmm. my miles seem to be off. Oh well. Not sure what happened. I must have had a brain fart along the way when I was organizing the pictures. Pretty area of the country still! A little more than 700 miles in, and the trees are still green.

I’m getting close to getting caught up on the pictures. I have one left (from Saturday). Have a great week, and keep moving!

Still going strong with the virtual walk. I’ve been feeling a bit sluggish for the last several days, but I make sure to keep moving. Took the weekend off from exercise, and that helped a bit. Back at it today though. Since my last Mileage Monday post, I’ve passed through Booneville, KY in Owsley county. I have about 3.5 miles until I reach Vincent, KY. Should get there tomorrow with the five mile Leslie Sansone I have scheduled. Here are more pictures from the site.

Mileage Mondays Are Back

October 21, 2013 Leave a comment

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Mileage Monday post. With Leslie Sansone’s October challenge, I’ve been posting the week’s schedule on Monday mornings. This week however, she posted it early enough on Sunday I decided to bring back the Monday posts.

On my last Mileage Monday post it wasn’t much of a post, since my computer decided to have a brain fart. I had to reinstall Windows 8, and I lost just about everything I didn’t have backed up to “the cloud”. The pictures from the virtual walk site were among the casualties.

Good news! I was able to retrieve them from the web site! There is a way to enter in a specific mileage point on the walk to bring up that mile’s picture. So, I went through the SparkPeople’s  Virtual Walk/Run Challenge team’s (I help co-lead this team) Where Are You now? thread to get my mileage points that I was missing.

Right now, I have about two week’s worth of pictures to get uploaded. So let’s get started.

Mile 653.8 (watp for 4 miles)                                  Mile 654.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)

653.8 Leslie for 4                  654.8 Elliptical for 1

Mile 655.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)                                Mile 657.8 (watp for 2 miles)

655.8 Elliptical for 1                  657.8 Leslie for 2

Mile 659.8 (watp for 1 mile/elliptical for 1 mile)       Mile 661.8 (watp for 2 miles)

659.8 Leslie for 1 Elliptical for 1                  661.8 Leslie for 2

Since my last Mileage Monday post, I’ve passed through Chavies, KY in Perry county, and Buckhorn, KY in Breathitt County. I have about 17.4 miles until I reach Booneville, KY in Breathitt county.

Have a great week, and keep moving!

Still loving my FitBit Flex! It’s helping me to stay moving. I check my FitBit dashboard periodically throughout the day and watch those steps increase. Great motivator. Plus, I added a few SparkPeople members who also have FitBits to my FitBit friend list, and that’s another good motivator. See how many people I can beat step-wise. Not many. Some are able to get in 20,000 steps a day. How? I have a hard enough time getting 5,000. Right now, my daily goal is 8,000.

Am flying through the virtual walk lately because of my increased activity. Since my last Mileage Monday post, I’ve passed through the cities of Emmalena, KY and Dwarf, KY, both in Knott county. I have about 15.75 miles until I reach Chavies, KY in Perry county. Here a the pictures from the site!

Mile 639.8 (watp for 3.1 miles)                               Mile 640.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)

639.8 Leslie for 3.1                 640.8 Elliptical for 1

Mile 641.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)                               Mile 642.8 (elliptical for 1 mile)

641.8 Elliptical for 1                 642.8 Elliptical for 1

Mile 646.8 (watp for 3.1 miles)                               Mile 648.8 (watp for 2 miles)

646.8 Leslie for 3.1                 648.8 Leslie for 2

What’s motivating you to move more? Have a great week!

I think my FitBit Flex is going to keep me moving. I feel guilty when I log into my FitBit account and see my low step count for the day. Right now, I have a goal of 5,000 steps a day. I might set that a bit higher eventually. Five thousand steps isn’t a lot for the “normal” person, but with someone with cerebral palsy, that’s pretty good.

I exercised five days this past week, and my body feels. it. I took Saturday off, but we ended up walking around Costco for about an hour, and that in itself is exercise for me. Hard floors, lots of people, and a big store can fit the bill for a workout. I did a mile on the elliptical today, and my legs are now tired. I need to make sure I stand up and move around the rest of the day though or else they’ll lock up and be very stiff. Will be on the floor later to stretch it all out too. That helps.

I’ve got five pictures for the last week from the virtual walk site. I have about 4.7 miles to go to reach the town of Emmalena, KY in Knott county. I should easily be able to get there this week. Here are the pictures!

Mile 630.6 (watp for 1 mile)                                      631.6 (Elliptical for 1 mile)

630.6 Leslie for 1                    631.6 Elliptical for 1

Mile 634.6 (watp for 3.1 miles)                                  Mile 635.6 (Elliptical for 1 mile)

634.6 Leslie for 3.1                    635.6 Elliptical for 1

Mile 636.6 (Elliptical for 1 mile)

I’ll be doing a “first impressions” post on my FitBit Flex sometime this week. I’m still getting used to it and learning about it. But so far, I love it.

Keep moving!

Been a while since my last post again. Oops. I actually am still dealing with an achy left shoulder. I haven’t done any strength training for over a month. I think I’m going to try some light exercises maybe today. Or else at least pop in my Pilates DVD. I haven’t done that DVD in years (literally). I should probably do a review on that DVD, even if it is an old one.

Speaking of reviews, I’m planning to do a review in a few months about something I just received. I’ve been wanting a FitBit for years, and my husband surprised me with one last week. I now have a FitBit Flex. I’ve had it less than a week, and I love it so far! Way too early to write up a review on it though. But my first impressions are very positive. I’m now thinking about getting the FitBit scale, which is called Aria. We’ll see though.

On to the mileage part of this post. Since my last entry, I’m passed through the town of Mallie, KY in Knott county. I have about 2 miles until I get to Hindman, KY in Knott county. Here are the latest pictures from the Virtual Walk site.

Mile 624.6 (watp for 1 mile, elliptical for 1 mile)           Mile 625.6 (elliptical for 1 mile)

I want to know what’s going on in this last picture. Lots of cars over there on the left!

Happy Labor Day! Keep moving!

Mileage Monday!

Another slow week for mileage, and I can’t think why. Need to get back into the habit of moving everyday, even if it is for only 10 minutes. Here are the two (yes two) pictures from the virtual walk site from last week.

Mile 614.8 (watp for 2 miles)                                Mile 616.8 (watp for 2)

614.8 Leslie for 2                616.8 Leslie for 2

Passed through Melvin, KY and have about 10 miles until I hit Mallie, KY in Floyd county.

Keep moving!
