Got my numbers in at last! The journey has truly begun for me

This thing is pretty cool. I was never in sports so this is like... the first "health" team I've been in. It's the perfect balance of independence and team motivation for me :] logging in and seeing a low mile day makes me want to make that number bigger. Although that's probably because people just haven't been logging yet, but either way it works on my brain :D

Fear is temporary. Knowledge is eternal. Action is the first step.

slowly but surely moving in the right direction! 

Thankfully my polar loop records my steps (I'd have trouble with the pedometer - I'd never remember to wear it either!)

I grabbed an extra old pedometer from my parents... but I'm not sure how accurate it is. Also I think it stops recording if my waistband flips over and it ends up upside down. The pedometer struggle is real! :P

I used the clip to fasten mine to a lanyard. It works well.

Wow - we're booking!!!  I added my miles for the week. Been doing a lot of yoga to deal with sore quads, but with the warmer (i.e. not sub-zero) weather, I should get in more miles this week.

Updated my last nearly 2 weeks in the spreadsheet - really like how this one is built and calculates! Great work!

Thanks Lady Hawk! Speaking of which, the spreadsheet has been updated and is ready for February.

 

As a team, we ALMOST made it to Mordor in one month! We will be back in Bag End in no time!

 

I was thinking, if everyone approves, that our team distance can leave Middle-earth once we get back to Bag End and see if we can make it around the World (24,902 miles), to the moon (238,900 miles), and maybe the Sun (93,000,000 miles!) someday. Let me know what you think.

 

Let's keep this Party going!! Great job everyone!

Love the idea! Also like to see my personal journey too, so thanks for having all these calculations! Keep on walking team!

 

Here's an interesting article on walking in the movies - a wide selection of movies plus where the characters walked and how many miles! Maybe there's something there too...

That is awesome! Forrest Gump is a Beast! If I ever make it to mordor, it would be fun to see how long it would take to run the same distance as Forrest. Years!!

 

I like it! Thanks for all of your hard work! :)

 

No Problem! It is a fun little project. I am glad you all like it and find it useful!

 

For everyone not aware yet, fitnessgurl has the new topic up in the current challenge.

Same spreadsheet and goal, just has that new topic smell to it  :playful:

Just added my final mileage for last month!

 

Woo Hoo!! Tho I noticed you entered it under the wrong name  :playful: Fixed it for you though (good ol' revision history in google docs!)

Also, let me know if you would like me to sync your mileage with that in your signature progress bar. Thinking we may not have been on the same page when I entered your mileage from last year.
