Challenge updates

I wanted to take a few minutes to update you all on the two challenges I am presently on, and to fess up about what I am now calling Sedentary Saturday.

First, the Daytona 500km challenge. Here is my latest chart:

daytonaI am on pace to end up with 508km by the end. I have a weekend trip coming up next week, and I might miss a day, so I am sticking to my 6.0km per day. As some of you know, I am watching Dexter episodes while I am on the treadmill. This morning I finished season 7, so I have only 12 episodes left. After that I’ll be on to another series to keep me occupied.

You will note that on Saturday, January 24th, I didn’t go to the gym. I wrote about that being a day of rest. Well, you haven’t seen the fullness of my resting until you see my step challenge:

stepsThat isn’t a typo. In addition to not going to the gym on Saturday, my total walking for the day was only 592 steps. Honestly, I think some of that was my phone giving me step credits when I picked it up to send a text message, because I honestly don’t think I walked 592 steps. It was a very lazy day indeed. Sunday I got to the gym, but fell short on the extra 5,000 steps

With the new work week I am back on track for both challenges. Today I had a smattering of meetings, so I didn’t get my afternoon laps in, but I still did manage 5,900 steps.

How are you doing on your challenges?

I'd love to read what you think. Feel free to comment. You can do so anonymously if you like, but I'd really like to know who you are if you don't mind. Thank you for reading! :)
