#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in February 17

My training is winding down for the BIG walk...I only have this week coming up and then I will be heading down first to NC to pick up my mom, who's doing the walk with me and then to Savannah where the walk is. I'm starting to get really excited for the walk...this week will be spent picking up any essentials I need for my walker's first aid kit (bandaids, blister kit, sunblock, lip balm, etc). Having done the walk before, I already have an idea of what I need and don't need, so that's helpful!
February Goals:

  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - 5/5, 0/2
  • 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:    

Feb 11:  5,689 steps
Feb 12:  3,599 steps

Feb 13:  17,473 steps (5K+ - 5 Charity Miles for MS)
Feb 14:  10,868 steps
(30 min fitness walk)
Feb 15:  18,912 steps
(10K+ -  6.5 Charity Miles for MS)
Feb 16:  18
,158 steps (10K -  6.2 Charity Miles for MS)
Feb 17:  11
,556 steps (30 min fitness walk)

Total Steps: 86,255 steps

Audiobooks listened to last week (since I'm not much of a music fan, I listen to books while I walk):
  • Started & Finished The Sister by Louise Jensen, narrated by Natalie Blass

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.
