Oops! I kind of completely forgot to do this last week. D:

I've been struggling a little bit with keeping up my steps, now that I'm home all day instead of at work. I've been able to get about 5k steps every day, which is definitely an improvement over my pre-pedometer level of activity, and some days I 've gotten 7500-8000, but that 10k mark is still a little elusive.

Still, I'm up to 94 miles! :D We are following a path east through the wetlands, and only about a mile away from meeting Tom Bombadil!

I wrote 3k today! Woohoo! Major, major thanks to [livejournal.com profile] itachitachi and [livejournal.com profile] lady_ragnell for all the wars in chat.

And now, I go to collapse in bed and sleep the sleep of the productive.

I walked about 19 miles this week. --Actually, I walked more than that. I forgot my pedometer at home one day this week. After a fair amount of wailing and gnashing of teeth and trying to figure out ways to game the system, I decided that if/when that happens, I'm just going to have to deal with the loss of those steps. I could have manually added the ~4 miles to FitBit's total distance, to compensate for it, but then I'd have to do that forever. And that kind of defeats the purpose of having the pedometer manage all that for me. Suddenly, I'm back to having to keep track of things myself again!

So, I'm not counting those steps. This week's distance brings me to a total of 46.23 miles. I've reached Woody End, a green floor in the wood roofed by boughs of trees, with a view that overlooks the river valley and the lights of Woodhall. In the three weeks I've had my pedometer, I've made it the place where the hobbits made camp at the end of their second night. XD

Also, apparently we are traveling with the elves now! Whoot!

I am really looking forward to crossing the 50-mile threshhold.

Pursuant to #3 in my goals post, I'm going to take the Eowyn Challenge. Basically: I'm walking to Rivendell! (And then beyond!)

 

I've actually tried to do this a few times over the past few years. Inevitably, I lasted a few weeks before the need to actually track and log and add up my distance became too much work and I stopped bothering.

 

But now I've got a pedometer! And its a fancy one that syncs online and keeps track of everything for me. Ask I have to do is remember to wear it.

 

I started on Christmas day, and so far, I've walked 27.5 miles. I've left Hobbiton behind, and the road I'd rolling up and down through the hills. Not a very exciting milestone, but farther than I've made it before!
