Day 310, Thursday, January 1, 2009

I'm pretty much done hiking around for tonight. Hershey took me for a walk this morning. He says he wants to get rid of the pork around his waist that he's picked up since moving back to Texas. No, he didn't really say that, I said that about him, but he loved the walk all the same.

I pumped up the tires on my bike and took it on a short one mile ride. Knees were noticing it on the last leg, so that's a good way to start. I'll build from here.

6170 steps for 3.31 miles (1477 aerobic steps for 15 minutes)

AT miles: 883.16

YTD miles: 3.31

(Having trouble with the spreadsheet, but I'm sure Mar will explain what's happening to me. Doesn't make sense that it's cutting my miles by over one-third.)

LOL, yeah, I explained. Jean didn't say if she's updated the setting yet though. Apparently our strides are different, go figure ;).

Does eating fudge count as hard work? Okay, had a good walk at noon, saw an interesting collection of birds including a red tail hawk that was just gorgeous. Spent the rest of the day pretending to work.

Happy New Year to everyone and congrats to Val on the new snow shoes. I really enjoy using mine, however you don't get anywhere near as much mileage for the same effort :)

Wednesday Bonnie and I walked 1.5 miles before the snow started, then it started to snow good, we got about 5 inches, and then the wind picked up and it got really cold. I rode the stationary bike 5.5.

Because of the cold and wind we changed our plans and didn't go into Boston for the festivities, but had the neighbors over and ate lots of food.

Total: 7

New Years day was cold and windy, but the temp got up to 20 and the wind droped under 25MPH so I went on my 3 mile run. Added an extra layer and it wasn't too bad. Went for a 1.5 mile walk in the evening, the wind was definitly starting to die down so only minorly bitterly cold.

Total: 4.5

AT: 1,532

I opted for the exercise bike. 2.5 miles in 15 minutes, so I'm getting faster. Plus another half mile puttering around the house.

January: 3

Yeah, I fixed it. I had typed in the number of steps that should have equaled my 3 miles per day goal. It really does help to read the cell notes. :)
