#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in February 3

So, I got one big walk in last week - 16 miles!!! And while I had great intentions of doing another one the next day, life got in the way and I couldn't get it in. But that's ok...I ended up with a blister on my one heel, so it was probably best I took a rest day. My new sneakers arrived Friday afternoon, so this coming week I'll be breaking them in - I can't wait!!! I have one more week of big walks and then I'll start to taper off on the distances.
January/February Goals:

  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - 5/5, 1/2
  • 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 - met
  • Distance walks (distances will vary, try to do 2 days, back-to-back ) - met!
  • Practice yoga - didn't do any full sessions this week, but got in some specific poses every day.

Here's how my last week went:    

Jan 28:  7,603 steps
Jan 29:  5,793 steps

Jan 30:  34,079 steps (10K+ - 16 Charity Miles for MS)
Jan 31:  11,664 steps
(30 min fitness walk)
Feb  1:  18,702 steps
(10K -  6.2 Charity Miles for MS)
Feb  2:  23
,183 steps (10K -  6.44 Charity Miles for MS)
Feb  3:  19
,149 steps (10K - 6.31 Charity Miles for MS)

Total Steps: 120,173 steps

Audiobooks listened to last week (since I'm not much of a music fan, I listen to books while I walk):
  • Started & Finished Play Dead by Angela Marsons, narrated by Jan Cramer
  • Started & Finished On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins, narrated by Xe Sands & Amy Rubinate

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.
