Just been to the pub, which was about, let's call it 20 minutes worth of walking.

150 minutes total.

Sorry, that was the 28th.

Today is the 29th.

Today I walked to the laringologist's and back for an hour. Later went out again looking (unsuccessfully) for decent clothes. I spent about an hour and twenty minutes outside, but some of that was trying clothes on, standing in front of clothes, etc. So I'll call that 45 minutes.

Just been doing some yoga for 15 minutes.

That's 120 minutes for today.

Yesterday: 70 minutes walking, mostly to have done something for this silly race.
Today: Between commuting, grocery shopping, and running around like a headless chicken at work hunting down disappearing Scotus scholars, 2 hours, 3 minutes

To/from town; actually took longer because of low sun shining on wet pavements, but would have been that time on a normal day.

Day 30 - 45 mins dog walking (very muddy but happy dogs!) plus 15 mins un-doggy walking too makes 60 mins total.

Running total therefore: 1347 mins or 22 hrs 27 min.

Penultimate day [Frown]

Longish run: 1 hour 58 minutes from start to finish but about 3 minutes was lost waiting for a crane to finish removing an old lock gate from the canal. So call it 1 h 55m.
Further slowed down by attempted mud dodging, but presumably mud dodging counts towards total. Plenty of mud.

plus about 10 m of aerobicish exercises.

Total for day thus 2 hours and 5 minutes.

January 30th: Well I certainly had twenty minutes walking to start off with. After that I was showing a friend around our district and tneighbouring district, which involved sitting down and eating and drinking. We left at 1:10pm and got back at about 4ish. I have no idea how long we were walking, so I'll call that 90 minutes.

110 minutes in total.

Hi everyone, I haven't done this weeks totals yet as the end of the month is so close by. Please try and get everything posted by friday evening and I'll post the final tallies sometime on saturday!

for me:
Wed 23rd 40 mins walking
Thur 24th 40 mins walking
Fri 25th 40 mins walking
Sat 26th 1 hour walking
Sun 27th 0 [Frown] This seems to be the way for sundays at the moment
Mon 28th 50 mins walking
Tues 29th 100 mins walking
Wed 30th 80 mins walking

I'm a bit disappointed that I haven't managed to get running this month, although I have started pilates which I am enjoying. I'm trying to be realistic about acheivability so that's quite a bit thing for me. Hope you have all enjoyed the race so far!

A mere 30 minutes walking today.

New total: 21 hours 42 minutes

Dunno whether 'enjoy' is the right word... I like being fit. I also like being able to casually lift 8 kilos with one hand. Most of the time I'd rather be sitting by the fire reading a good book than exercising, though.

Well, even though it was raining I did walk back from my course-thing this morning. I feel very virtuous. But if I am to make it to 29 hours for the month I will have to dance an awful lot tonight. And probably go the long way home as well. Might have to give up on that little goal.

Tuesday, January 29th (cont)
10 mins walking home from work

Wednesday, January 30th
10 mins walking to work
12 mins walking home from work
25 mins walking to dance class
30 mins dancing

Thursday, January 31st (so far)
10 mins walking to work
35 mins walking back from course (counting it because I could have taken the bus)


Total for post: 132 minutes or 2 hours and 12 minutes
Running total: 1647 minutes or 27 hours and 27 minutes

Last Post...

Not such a good day again. No time for swimming or workout, so a mere 25 minutes high speed walking.

Final result: 22 hours 2 minutes which averages out at about 42 minutes per day... not as bad as I expected.

My final check-in: 80 minutes again commuter walking. Final total 1908 minutes or 31 hours 48 minutes. Not bad [Smile]

(although I am mildly embarrassed that not one of those minutes involves housework)

Not very impressive final day push - 30 mins walk and 10 mins aerobics.

Final total (methinks): 1690 mins or 28 hours and 10 minutes

January 31st: Not the most exiting of ends. No running. No yoga. Just walking. The reason is a guest and various things that would require posts in All Saints.

I walked to the dentist's and back for 25 minutes. Later walked with my (now ex-) guest via the tram to town and then in town. That was about 15 minutes. Walked around the train station for another five, and later 40 minutes back home.

Total is 85 minutes.

Wrapping up the month, I note that with a couple of small exceptions, my exercise was not varied. However, my new hiking boots are now well broken-in.

January 26 - a beautiful day, so walked downtown to shop at the farmer's market and skate on the City Hall rink (great fun - volunteers had set up a warming tent, portable fireplace and road hockey nets). Total of 90 minutes.

January 27 - 60 minutes walking to and from the grocery store and library

January 28 - 80 minutes walking and stair-climbing

January 29 - Freaking cold (-41C windchill), so only 25 minutes walking to and from the train. Unfortunately, I don't think shivering and cussing count toward my total or I'd have accumulated enough time to win the race [Biased]

January 30 - 55 minutes walking. I didn't intend to do that much, but the bus I wanted to take home didn't appear and it was too cold to stand still at the bus stop waiting to see if it would show up

Today - 65 minutes walking, much of that through a lovely snowfall

Congrats everyone, and thank you Jenn. for taking this on - it's been great motivation. [Smile]

Bother, bother. Horrible weather & nightshirts mean I have either not done exercise or not kept a note since my last post, so I'm out I guess.
On the other hand, I did get back on the unicycle yesterday and made it a short distance, and then repeated that a couple of times (with a bit of falling off in between). So if nothing else, I feel I have achieved something worthwhile this month.
Also, without this thread, I think I'd still be getting the train to work instead of cycling.
Thanks for doing the addings up Jenn. Looking forward to the next one (which I will win ).

Day 31 - 65 mins dog walking (and we even saw the sun for some of it!)plus 10 mins walking to shops makes 75 mins total.

Running total therefore: 1412 mins or 23 hrs 42 mins

- an average just over 45 mins day (not as impressive as last time but considering flu-like thing and all sorts of rubbish-y things happening here I guess it's not too bad [Big Grin]

Thanks Jenn - you're a star! [Smile]

Tues 29: 15 mins walking. Mainly to the corner shop and back to buy heaps of chocolate to help with doing the dreaded tax return.:

Weds 30: 40 mins walking - to choir and back. Tax return submitted

Thurs 31: 20 mins walking

I make my total 33 hours 25 mins which, if it is correct, means I've averaged around an hour a day for the month. Not bad seeing as I had The Lurgy at the beginning and The Tax Return at the end.

However I am disappointed that it's basically all in walking, mainly commuter walking. I definitely did some walking that I wouldn't otherwise have done but really I wasn't pushing my fitness forward very much. Something to ponder.

Well done for taking on the challenge. Looking forward to (someone else) doing it again in July!

Thank you, Jenn.

I just don't have the spare time to rack up 2 hours or more every day (well done, Rosa W)... but I'm a lot fitter than I was this time last month!

Hope to see you all again in July.

Thanks for keeping track of us all Jenn. I ended up falling by the wayside after January 20 - I was still doing stuff, but managed to lose the notes due to life being a bit awkward the last week or so of January... [Hot and Hormonal]

Might be better organised by the time the next one rolls around (but I doubt it!)

Thanks for the congratulations, people. And a big thank you to Jenn [Overused]

I actually began to enjoy exercise. The snow helped in getting me out running (it was very nice by the river, and migratory birds were an added bonus). I got into aerobics right at the end and tried some new yoga sequences; that they were new kept my interest up. I felt the benefit after a few weeks in my general energy levels and also back, so that motivated me further.

If we had a bigger flat I wouldn't mind having a punch bag.

In any case, I've been beset with my own health bother this month, but not so as to effect my fitness (rather my motivation in the end), but I hope to push on with the various exercises I did.

I wish all of you a fit year.

I climb stairs when they come my way, always skipping steps on the way up. While taking an escalator down, I usually hold on with my arms and hands while raising my feet. The Hell with rentacops at the bottom: garbage in, garbage out! They are the lowest form of vocational life, on par with toilet-scrubbers!

Is this thing over? Am I sincerely thankful to Jenn. for running this thing? Am I glad I beat all y'alls, save Rosa? Do I have any clue how she did it?

Yes.
