I enjoy long romantic walks to the fridge... [open pvp] (4 Jan 2016 - 31 Jan 2016])


Recommended Posts

I enjoy long romantic walks to the fridge....well it all counts in this PvP!!!


 


This is a walking PvP that will be running during the current 4 week challenge from Jan 4 to Jan 31 2016


 


5 levels:


Titanium - 128 km's (80 miles)


Gold - 96 km's (60 miles)


Silver - 64 km's (40 miles)


Bronze - 32 km's (20 miles)


Copper - 19 km's (12 miles)


 


PVP Rules


 


1. Pick a level above that will stretch you but you think you can make. During the challenge walk that many km's in 4 weeks.


 


2. Sign up in this sheet and track your km/miles during the 4 week challenge.


 


3. Specify after your name either (walking) or (pedometer) depending on if you will be tracking either just specific "I'm going for a walk" distances (walking) or I will track steps by wearing a pedometer/fitbit/etc. (pedometer). It's easier to get more mileage using a pedometer so we want to keep you accountable to hit those higher medals   ;)


 


4. Any amusing walking gifs are most welcome   :)


 


Anyone is welcome to join in from any guild, including recruits   :encouragement:


 


Theme song for this PvP, it applies to those late night fridge visits ;)

Yay!  A challenge that's ready to go for January.  I've had my eye on you guys since last challenge when I was gifted a lovely fitbit.  Going to put it to good use and join you this time around.

 

Any specific rules I should know about - or do I just enter what the fitbit says for miles at the end of the day?  In the interest of fairness, I do promise to take off the fitbit band when playing the piano :playful:

Welcome.Does the fitbit count your steps when you play piano? That's funny. I've noticed it gives me a step when I buckle my seatbelt. Overall though, I think it is fairly accurate.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity:

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

No specific rules other than add (fitbit) after your name in the sheet and update as you go. Not compulsary to update daily but at least once a week is a good idea and the more often the better for motivation I find. Good to have you along for the journey :encouragement:

January is what sets me up for the rest of year so I'm going for Titanium. Specific walks only, don't have a fitbit but do have a very active puppy who's going to love me this month!

Yeah, the fitbit is pretty funny.  It's still a new toy to me, so I haven't found all the tricks yet.  Piano is the only real laughable mistake I've found.  I don't play every day, but a half hour really ramped up my steps one day.  I like the seatbelt buckling.  It's like a bonus for safe drivers :)

 

I'm going to shoot for 100 miles this challenge.  That's between 8000 and 9000 fitbit steps a day.

 

Somehow walking with a fitbit doesn't sound nearly as rewarding as walking with a puppy, though.  Happy fitbits don't wag their tails and give smooshy kisses.

I'm finally back on NF so I'm in and my puppy will likewise be thrilled. I've been WAAAAYYY too lazy lately and she is getting stir crazy. If we have more weeks of mostly negative temps it'll be hard but I've got to get back in the swing of things so I'll really push myself and go for Gold.

I'm in! But it'll be hard to update regularly due to no cell service/no internet without driving.

I have a JawboneUp but it doesn't work very well without service. :(

But I can walk!

*edit* or harder than I thought because I can't figure out how to edit the spreadsheet on my phone!

Going for Bronze. :-)

6 km's with the hound, I'm off to a good start on day 1! 

 

Nicely done. Your post both inspired and guilted me (thinking of my pup) so I got in a quick mile with the Doggel during my lunch break and, as I did not freeze to death after all, I'll go for a couple more after work.

guilt is such a powerful tool. :) A dog is handy motivation too. I briefly tried to teach my cats to walk on leashes, but it ended with me following them and them not caring where I wanted them to go. LOL at least I don't have to drag them.

I went on my first snow walk of the season in 12 degrees. They don't plow the walking path at work, so I may have to start going on morning walks to make up the difference once the snow buries it.

When you go out in the morning, do you wait until sunrise or go while it's still dark?
