Week 8

(M zooming down the sledding hill. February 2008)

It’s that time again: Move 2008 Check-In (week 8)

I have to admit I was a bit of a lazy slug this past week. I got sick with the flu on Thursday and it was all downhill from there. Because my week runs from Monday through Sunday, that’s a good chunk of the week lost. Not completely lost, though, because I did go sledding on Saturday. Walking up the sledding hill is a darn good workout.

Without further ado, my stats for week 8:

Walking mileage for the week — 19.16 miles

Total mileage for the year — 164.20 miles

Strength training: 1 x

Yoga: 4 x

Not bad, but could be better.

My goals for this week are to walk a minimum of 20 miles, do at least 2 strength training workouts, and hit the yoga mat every day.

    Oh, that hill looks great fun! But don’t you end up on the pond? I’d be frightened of the ice cracking. Yes, I remember walking up hills was hard work when tobogganning. Very hard.

    Don’t you get some credit for sledding down the hill? That’s got to burn some calories somehow and it’s way more fun than the walk back uphill.

    EN: The pond is frozen solid so we end up sledding across the ice (almost as much fun as sledding down the hill if the ice happens to be cleared of snow). When the pond isn’t frozen, the key to not ending up in the pond is to somehow stop before you get there. I stop by rolling off the sled because dragging my feet doesn’t always do the job (sometimes I just keep sliding when I try to stop that way).

    Alto2: Tons more fun going down. I was whining, er, saying that we need a tow rope up that hill to save us all the walking.

    I suppose there should be some credit for going down. The sheer fun and excitement of it must burn some calories.

    Totally awesome, Kel. 🙂
