I might have to change my name to Late. Or just decide that my Move 2008 updates will happen whenever the urge strikes. It’s not really a matter of urge. More like having stretched myself a bit far with two blogs on WordPress and writing elsewhere.
I had a good week last week. Here are my Week 17 stats:
- Mileage for Week 17: 20.45 miles
- Total for 2008: 350.76 miles
- Strength/weight training: x’s 3
- Yoga: x’s 4
The mileage is coming along pretty well. I’m very optimistic about making 1,000 miles this year. It’s a shame I’m not actually walking somewhere or for a cause.
Another 150 miles and I’ll need to invest in a new pair of walking shoes. Most walking magazines and websites recommend replacement every 300-500 miles.
I hope to be back later with a few more photos from our San Diego trip.
I think I better find a good meme. At the rate I’m writing about our San Diego trip, I’m not going to finish by the end of the month. You may recall that I threatened myself with a meme if I didn’t finish by April 30th. If anyone out there has a good one, let me know. I’m pretty sure I’m going to need it.
It’s time for another Move 2008 update. Here are my Week 16 stats:
- Mileage for the week: 20.30
- Mileage for 2008: 329.31
I’m afraid I didn’t do any yoga or strength training during Week 16, unless you count gardening. On Saturday M and I dug an asparagus bed and planted 24 asparagus crowns. In three years I’ll be eating fresh asparagus that I planted with my own two hands. I’m looking forward to it.
I’ve been pretty sore since Saturday’s gardening adventures. I’m going to count it as one strength workout.
I’m back on track with another project beginning today, and that will help me get back on track with my Move 2008 goals. I expect next week’s update will be much better.
Spring has come to the Bogs, and it looks likely that winter has gone for good.
I heard the spring peepers for the first time this year last night. (If you’re not familiar with the spring peeper, you can read about it and listen to it here.) The scent of blooming hyacinths and daffodils is perfuming the warm breeze blowing in through the open windows.
It’s unbelievably warm here today. Lovely.
I’m very late with my Week 15 Move 2008 update. It hasn’t been easy to keep track of all the walking I’ve done over the past few weeks. This is my best guesstimate. I tend to lean towards underestimating so I’m probably cheating myself out of a mile or two. Most of last week’s mileage occurred in Mission Beach and surrounding areas. I didn’t have time to put in mileage the day we traveled home (Thursday) or the rest of the weekend because we were getting ready to go on our next trip.
- Week 15 mileage: 15.00 miles
- Total for 2008: 309.01 miles
- Strength training: Zero, zilch, nada
- Yoga: Not much
Now that we’re finished traveling for a while, I should be able to get back on track with everything.
