Lots of "travel-camp-travel-camp" after Rivendell, few events at first.

Calls for some epic travel music... 😇

I've been slacking on updating things. Also, just slacking. I've only, in the last couple weeks, been somewhat consistent with walks. Also, for awhile there, my Fitbit would track that I walked, but not track distance. Not sure what's up with that because every dedicated walk I take, I be sure to manually start and stop a workout to ensure I capture said walk. Oh well.

 

I've got a long way to go until Rivendell but I'm hoping soon it'll start cooling down enough to walk the pups in the evening and I can then run in the mornings. I can resume the double-dipping and increasing mileage as I did in spring preparing for the June 5k. I have another 5k in November and I haven't run since the 5k June 10th so I'm going to need to start picking that back up and training if I want to not die haha

You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be better than you were before. Do that every day and you will succeed.

Me too! Walking buddies :D

 

I have a challenge right now to walk 200 000 steps in 15 days (I have 5 days and 60 000 steps left) so I've been walking double my usual pace most days, but I don't think I'll keep that rhythm once my challenge is over 😅

I've also made it to Rivendell (July 24th). Haven't been on the forums in a while though. Hoping to hang out here more come next challenge.

I'm nearly halfway to Rivendell and should be at actual halfway by the end of the month. Ramping up 5k training again for the 5k on Nov 18th - finally cool enough to walk dogs in the evening so several days a week, weather dependent, should have 2 sources of mileage. Hoping to make a dent in this journey this last little bit of the year!

I left Rivendell three months ago. I have since travelled 232 miles and have now finally reached another scene from the books / movies.

 

I have reached Hollin Ridge. Large holly trees mark the ridge. The Fellowship camped during the day and planned to stay overnight, until this happened:

I made it to Rivendell at the end of August, and then, somehow, everything just got strange and weird in September, with October being a black hole that included Covid and November being mostly about recovery (though there was a massive 6+ mile day that was not just many many steps but alos StepsOnBleachers). I'm not certain if my daily distance will go up, but I'm definitely looking forward to tracking it with this great Fellowship. :) 

 

@TimovieMan, will we keep the same spreadsheet as we move into 2024?? This same thread?

New thread, new spreadsheet. But don't worry: you can enter the distance you travelled before 2024 in the first sheet and continue where you were... See the "Sign up" tab on the current spreadsheet.
