Book Blog Walkers: February Weekly Check-in Feb 21, 2014

So, with the 1/2 marathon now only 3 weeks away, I've started to panic a bit due to the fact that I haven't really been able to get in many distance walks. With all the snow on the ground, it's a bit hard to do any walks outdoors, so I've resorted to walking at the mall. And you know what - it's not that bad!!! The mall by me is rather large and if I the perimeter of all four levels, it's just over 3 miles. I like to go early, when no one is there so I can zoom around at a rather quick pace, so Monday morning I got there at 5 am and it was just me and the cleaning crew and security. Unfortunately, do the a crazy week, I didn't make it back there, but hopefully, I'll get there this weekend.

Here's how my week went:

Feb 15:  5 miles (mall walking)
Feb 16:  rest
Feb 17:  6.5 miles (mall)
Feb 18:  30 minutes indoor walking + 1.5 hours shoveling
Feb 19:  rest  
Feb 20: 45minutes indoor walking
Feb 21:  1 hour indoor walking

How did your week go?



  1. I hope you feel ready for it when it comes. Hmm mall walking sounds sort of fun, although I don't have any big ones near me. How long is a half marathon? I've never done one and won't now with age and wonky knee. But can applaud from afar!

    1. A 1/2 marathon is 13.1 miles. I did a 3 day, 50 mile walk last year, and on 2 of the days we did more than that, so I know I can do the distance...but it wasn't a timed thing. For the 1/2 marathon, I need to be able to complete it in under 4 hours. I'm pretty sure I can do it, but having the time limit just adds pressure!

  2. Great job! Keep it up and you should do fine in the 1/2 marathon. I love to walk!

  3. AWESOME Job! I was offline this weekend but I did bookmark this on my phone. You are really kicking butt!
