#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in January 6

So, January is off to a somewhat good start...I've been active everyday, but I've also been fighting a cold, so I haven't really been going crazy with my training for the BIG walk I'm doing in March. I'm not too worried, though, since I have been training since August and have been pretty active all along, despite a few bumps along the way! Plus, I do have the two dogs that keep me moving every day :)

January Goals:

  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - met
  • 30 minutes of active walking every day, M-F - met
  • Eat mindfully/eat enough (esp. in important while training!) - met
My training plan for the Challenge Walk MS I'll be doing in March of 2017:

  • 4 miles, 2 days a week, interval training - did one 4 mile walk and one 3+ mile walk
  • Distance walks (distances will vary, try to do 2 days, back-to-back ) - didn't do this week
  • Try to attend one yoga class a week - didn't make it to class, but did do some yoga one day at home

Here's how my last week went:    

Dec 31:  942 steps (Fitbit died - we had been away & couldn't recharge it)
Jan  1:  10,160 steps + 15 minutes Yoga

Jan  2:  14,589 steps 
Jan  3: 17,144 steps
(5K+  4.32 Charity Miles for MS)
Jan  4:  11,549 steps

Jan  5:  18
,462 steps (5K+ 3.3 Charity Miles for MS)
Jan  6:  13
,417 steps 

Total Steps: 86,173 steps

Audiobooks listened to last week (since I'm not much of a music fan, I listen to books while I walk):
  • Started The Shadow Sister by Lucinda Riley, narrated by Jessica Preddy

How did your week go? You can find this week's link-up here.

***In March, I'll be doing the CHALLENGE WALK MS in Savannah, GA. It is a three-day, 50-mile walk that tests your strength and your spirit, and makes an extraordinary difference in the lives of people with MS and their families.

  1. Good to have dogs :) I am afraid taking a walk with my cat takes a long time and we do not make it far

  2. Fantastic exercise. I am waiting to see what you say about The Shadow Sister, the narrater has mixed reviews.

  3. Okay... Not sure what happened to what I was typing. WEIRD! Anyhow... just wanted to say great job on your training. You've come a long way and had some bumps in the road. You got this! Happy New Year!
