Three Days in Pinehurst Doing the Rotary Thing

Activity Days 25-27: On Friday Celeste and I drove from Charlotte to Pinehurst for the Rotary District 7690 Conference. As expected I fell behind my pace as a result, but it was a great 3 days and our first chance to spend time in Pinehurst.

Miles walked/run: 2.83, 4.43, 2.37 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 227.35. These three days put me about 6 miles behind schedule, but I think I’ll make them up this week.

A Night at the Knights

Activity Day 24: Spent most of the day in the office catching up on stuff after spending the first half of the week in Raleigh, then Celeste and I dashed down to Charlotte to take in a Charlotte Knights with the folks from Loebsack & Brownlee. We had a blast and I have to say that watching AAA is about like watching a Major League game without the massive stadium and crowds.

Miles walked/run: 3.54 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Three Days in Raleigh

Activity Days 21-23: Work took me to Raleigh the first half of the week (May 21-23) for an education conference the first two days and then a visit to the legislature on Wednesday. I’ve pasted the FitBit screenshots from all three days below. Didn’t make my 5.4 miles-per-day goal any of these days, but I did better than I thought I would. Some pics from the conference and legislative visits are at the bottom of the post.

Miles walked/run: 4.13, 4.11, 4.44 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 240.52. I’m still slightly ahead of schedule. After the next few days, though, I won’t be so lucky.

Terrible Tennis and Neighborhood Delivery

Activity Day 20: Played my first competitive singles match, as in a league match, for the first time in forever and it didn’t go well. I was supposed to play doubles, but we had a no-show so singles it was. It was hot as blazes and I stunk the place up, so it’s a match I’d prefer to forget. Then in the evening my better half and I delivered the neighborhood newsletter, which kicked in a couple of miles. All in all it was a good exercise day even if the tennis sucked.

Miles walked/run: 7.93 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 253.2. I’m ahead of schedule, but that’s a good thing because the next week features a lot of travel that will likely put a serious ding in my daily mileage.

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:
