5 WEEK WALK – Steve

From 7/6/2018 to 8/10/2018 Steve walked 159.30 miles = 4.55 miles per day = 31.8 miles per week.

His two days off work a week keep his average down. Many work days he walks between  six to eight miles.

This proves that walking is not a weight nor a fat reducing exercise.

One might think that by walking that much one would be trim, no matter what or how much they ate. No so.

5 WEEK WALK – Sharon

I walked 64.37 miles in 5 weeks from 7/6/2018 to 8/10/2018.

That’s an average of 1.8 miles per day. Or 12.8 miles per week.

I need to improve on this.






 

Shar Walking Log – Aug. thru Oct. 2017

I decided not to document number of floors climbed until I get serious about doing them – which I eventually will. On the iphone the floor recordings are not that accurate. I can climb a small hill up to my building and it sometimes records the steps as floors. Either way, I’m not doing enough climbing. My walking muscles are good – they should be after decades of long distance walking. It’s the skeletal structure that’s bad (well, not so good). I still, however, prefer to actually climb the steps than do the STAIRMASTER at the club. Due to the ease with which my quadriceps cramp up, I don’t last long on a master nor when using the resistance machines. Natural, for now is best for me. When I master the natural steps, hopefully I’ll head on out to the gym to do some serious leg work.

Leading up to doing the natural stair climbing, I found that one of my balance exercises targets those quads: marching in place. I started off high, then realized I could get the same effect lasting longer, not starting out with knees raised so high to the chest. Forward, backward, in circles in all directions. The key is with so many different exercises targeting different body parts, I need to organize them, so I get the best benefit. It’s too easy to, for example, let the marching slide, when I’m focusing on some new exercise to add to my regimen.

Rather than take so much time typing each reading in, I’ll just tally them up and divide by the days.

At least I’m walking. I do forget the phone now and then, sometimes when I walk the furthest, but as you can see I’m not all that motivated to record nor to walk long distances since my concussion, which happened in July.

I might start walking in the building now that winter is upon us here in Cleveland. However, with all the drug running, prostitution, human trafficking going on in the building, it’s probably wise not to walk on other people’s floors. It’s too bad, but that’s the reality of where I live.






 

WALKING A MARATHON -July 2017

In June 2017 I walked a marathon in 21 days. A marathon is 26 miles, so it was a little over a marathon in 21 days.
