586.52km to go!

I'm floundering, failing and falling behind.  I know what I need to do, but cant seem to make myself pull it together and actually do it. 

Basically, by not keeping up, I have made more work for myself.  In order to finish this challenge on time, these were the numbers I worked out (as of this week)

11 weeks left in the challenge

I need to walk 53.32 km a week or 7. 62 km a day.  That means, on top of my "everyday" 2.90 km, I need to tack on 4.72 km.  That's about 2 hours work of exercise.  How am I making out so far?

I need to make up 38.24 km by Saturday.  Yeah, probably not going to happen...AGAIN!  There is no way I am going to walk just over 19 km in two days.  I will make a good effort for it and I guess I better ramp up for the treadmill tonight.  I am off work tomorrow and have a sitter for the kids, so I hope to hit the trail for a walk.  Saturday we are headed to the Toronto Zoo and that is a day filled with walking and honestly, I am interested to see what sort of numbers I pull off that day!

Go check out Julie's blog....she's had some hurdles this week, but is still doing awesome.  She is the smart one of this duo and actually got some extra miles under her belt!

I can't wait to see the pandas at the zoo!

  1. You, my love, must NOT GIVE UP!!!!

    Sneak in a few songs and dance your butt off throughout the day!!

    The boys are back on TV, so maybe you can hike up your sweat session during your magical Winchester escape?!?!?!

    I know the weather is getting cooler, maybe take the kiddos for walks more to enjoy the change in foliage?!?!?!

    Take THREE 10-minute breaks during your day and just walk around. Walk around the house, walk around the yard, walk on your treadmill..... just WALK!

    ....Of course this is all coming from a girl who spent the last week in a drunken-stupor (well... not the entire week!) :-P

    I got left behind, and I will NOT let it happen again! (I found my FitBit by the way so I can get back on track!)

    Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
