Hmmmm, exercise tickers in the signature lines, cool idea!

I did a little over 25 miles actual walking (I walk to and from work, a little over three miles each way) plus 17 on the treadmill. As I said, it was nice here last week. This week... not so much.

Nasty weather here has been cramping my walking, but I'm still moving along.

I'm 3.33% to my goal today! LOL

I keep track with RunKeeper. I love them so much! They have a free or paid app on the iPhone, and you can track running, walking, hiking, biking, swimming, all sorts of things all on the same app, and they have a separate website. You can have friends on there and follow each other to keep each other motivated. If anyone has one or wants to get one, let me know!

Actually, RunKeeper's goal tracking is only for one activity, so I can't say "Run + Hike 1000 miles" like I'd intended on, so mine is going to be only running. I run every other day, so I'm going to say 650 miles this year, because once I get started training my half marathon, I may decide I need to wait a while and keep working on my time for the 5k.
Downloaded RunKeeper yesterday, very cool! Similar to MapMyWalk but with the added bonus that you can keep your actual route maps private. Oh yeah, and you can start your "Goal" tracking in the past. I couldn't back my goal up to the beginning of the year on MMW.

I have endomondo on my cell phone. it tracks what I do when i turn it on. I normally do atleast 5k every walk.But winter is harder for me, due to light. but when days are longer I do anywhere from 5-10k a day or more. I game, and pretty confident I could go past it. I love walking

(5k = 3.1miles)

Yay! Glad you like it. I LOVE that I can go back to change the date.

Bleh, added 24 miles treadmill/walking combined for last week. Nothing, nada, yesterday or today because I'm feeling particularly... bleh. I'm really looking forward to spring.

Up to 21 miles and I haven't calculated today's totals. Still one more walk of the evening.

You know, when you have a choice walking for fitness is fun. You get a great sense of accomplishment.

Today... not so much. I'm going to be vehicle-less for two days, van's going for an extended stay at the shop. Last week this would have been an adventure. Today, again... not so much.

Weather Network tells me it's -18C today, the windchill shoving that down to -28C (0F & -18F). Peachy. Going to be doing some really BRISK walking.
