I then signed up for a trip to India leaving 26 June... shaving 4 days off my time. I therefore backdated the challenge to 26 December (handy as it was a day I did a lot of walking!) and have been working on it since.
At first I had to walk 3.3m per day. It was hard to do - if you missed a day the total shifted so it was important to try to walk 3 miles every day. I was TIRED. I walk a lot - so thought this would be easier... somehow having to do it on days when you were busy doing other things made it really quite difficult.
After a while it became easier. Then I had a few days where I couldn't go out - days where I was working away and simply didn't have the time after travelling to fit an hour or so walking into the day.
I fell behind.
Last month I was needing to walk over 5 miles per day to hit the target. I worked really hard to get some extra miles in and am currently back at just over 3 miles per day.
By Monday I will have walked 400miles since Christmas. It feels good!! But my walking boots have died - tiny cracks in the sole mean my foot gets wet on the hills. One wet foot :)
