Walking Winston

Activity Day 19: Went for a nice long walk around Winston-Salem and it reminded me that cities look different when you walk them versus when you drive through them. The miles logged today got me through the 100-mile threshold since the start of the challenge on May 1.

Miles walked/run: 9.41 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 261.13. As I mentioned before, these miles get me past the 100-mile threshold for the challenge. Looking forward to the next 100!

Walking in Place

Activity Day 18: Didn’t feel like swimming for my miles, so given the day’s monsoons I decided a session on the treadmill would be the best approach to get in the miles. Boring? You bet, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Miles walked/run: 5.03 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Beating the Heat

Activity Day 14: It was HOT today (low 90s), so I waited until the evening to do my walk. We seem to have skipped spring and gone straight into summer. My better half came outside to see me off and I caught a shadow pic (see below).

Miles walked/run: 7.37 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

And on the 13th day, he rested

Activity Day 13: After the last week the dogs weren’t just barking, they were howling, so I decided to take it pretty darn easy. Did a little puttering but for the most part, it was a rest and recovery day.

Miles walked/run: 1.72 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 297.58. This puts me a scooch behind my pace, but I’ll make it up tomorrow.

Moving Erin

Activity Day 12: Our daughter needed some help moving into her new apartment, so the day was spent toting stuff out of one apartment, loading cars and unloading at the new place. Luckily, her boyfriend recruited his brothers and one buddy to help so I didn’t have to move much furniture. Overall, one of the easier moves of my extended career as a volunteer mover.

Miles walked/run: 4.76 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 299.3. Woot!Less than 300 left to go.

Dodging Raindrops on the Bicentennial Greenway

Activity Day 11: A nice long walk on the Bicentennial Greenway, from north High Point into Jamestown. There’s a creek that the path crosses over several times and the vast majority of the path is shaded by trees, which makes it a very pleasant walk…even when it rains.

Miles walked/run: 8.2 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 304. Now a few miles ahead of the pace needed to make the goal by July 7.

Midnight Walker

Activity Day 10: Had a busy day and had to squeeze in a neighborhood walk between 10:45 and midnight on Thursday night. Definition of “Just Do It.”

Miles walked/run: 5.57 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 312.2. Now ahead of pace!
