100 mile challenge



Recommended Posts

I downloaded the "Map my Walk" app on my phone. My wife and I went and walked at a track not to far from the house. We walked .78 miles. I know that doesn't put a dent in the 100 miles, but it's a start. I felt good and wasn't as tired afterwards. How do I go about sharing or is this the honor system...lol?

So far for today I have in 12.6 miles. Not the 20 I was hoping for, but the day is still young.

I think I will participate in terms of running.

Currently my warmup is about 3 miles for 4 days a week and 2 miles for 2 days a week. That puts me at 16 a week or 64 in 1 month. I could add 2 miles of running after each workout to add another 48 miles over the next month. That would push it a little bit over 100 and certainly not too much cardio when split up into 2-3 mile increments before and after cross fit or power cardio (cardio with body weight exercises or light weights) at home. My body is very conditioned to running 3 mile increments without much effort (about 5 k), so it should not be a problem combining it with whatever my daily workout is.

Good job!

I rode a creek path today and logged 7 miles and some change!

So my total is 21.7 miles!

My legs where like rubber today I think I need a rest. I might do that tomorrow.

My husband just came in from unloading the bikes and told me my front tire had a "profound" rub from the brakes so it was like I was riding with the brakes partially on today :P

Maybe that's why it was so much harder :D

New bike for me!!!!

Fiddle glad your joining!!!!

Thanks for the link LV... and thanks BTB for starting this!

I'm going to join in! Mine will be mostly treadmill and spin class.

My treadmill does NOT count distance/miles, etc. (I know how crappy is that? People don't believe me when I say that.) It only counts heartrate, time, incline, and speed. So I need to find an app for my phone that will count the miles. I'm not used to carrying my phone with me either but I will give it a whirl!

Spin varies b/c the instructor does different things each week, but I try to go 2x a week and we usually log between 14-20 miles per class. It's an hour long class and she does an "advanced" class that is an hour and a half (which I'm too chicken to try...but maybe I will try that too someday this month!!)

Excited to jump in! Thanks all...

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
