Atrytone Walks 10 km for Charity

Recommended Posts

Last month my mom suggested we participate in our community's Coldest Night of the Year walk. They have three distance options - 2 km, 5 km, and 10 km - and we both agreed to the 10 km one. Unfortunately it's been a while since I've walked 10 km. I have until February 22nd to train.

 

Goal 1:

Walk 5 km every Monday morning before work.

 

Goal 2: 

Walk an extra km/week on one of my days off (Week 1 - 6 km, Week 2 - 7 km, Week 3 - 8 km, Week 4 - 9 km, Week 5 - 10 km)

 

Goal 3: 

Stretch 3x/week

 

All donations I receive for walking will go to those hungry, homeless, and in need in the Oceanside community.

This is a great challenge and it is so you. I remember when you learned a few words in Hungarian just to make a lady more comfortable. You're a very giving person.

Half points for Monday. I walked a total of more than 5 km but didn't do a 5 km walk.

 

1/3 stretches complete.

 

7 km walk unlikely to be completed. We got positively drenched in snow here this week. I did, however, shovel snow which is a great (read: painful) workout.

Snow happens to the best of us.  Great job doing what you can!

Thanks. It's pretty but a pain. Plus side I got a snow day from work!

Pure and simple...and for a good cause!  Way to keep at it even in the rough weather.

Here to see the pictures of you crossing the finish line!

Got knocked bloody with the one-two punch of winter and illness. On the mend now but it's been a rough couple weeks without a whole lot of activity.

 

It's going around! I had it last week and I think @Sloth the Enduring has had it too. The curse of winter nose viruses.

Luckily I only had three really bad days. Still fighting with a sniffle and cough though. 😕
