Walk 500 miles - 2013 Challenge

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!

I have another 6 stone to lose to get to 'healthy weight'.  The fact that 'healthy weight' is lighter than I was at 14/15ish when we had to weigh ourselves at school (sure I was about 10stone) is immaterial.

In an attempt to reach this goal, I have set a short-term goal of walking 500 miles by my birthday (June).

I realised that it actually needs to be done by 26 June as I'm off to India, so have decided to count miles walked from Christmas day to the 25 June.

I have walked 54 miles since Christmas.

It had sounded feasible when I made up the challenge... I walk about 6 miles a week to and from work.  It's 3 miles to the gym and back and I do that at least once a week.

It isn't feeling good.  I have 2.7miles a day to do, despite the 54 miles done in less than a month...

This leaves 83.33 miles per month, which is 21 miles a week.

I usually walk 9 miles a week and I thought that more than doubling that would be EASY?

My legs hurt.  I don't know if I can do it!

well done on the loss so far - that is a LOT of miles though!

You can do it! You didn't think you could run either, but you did that.

Keep at it!
