#FitReaders: Weekly Check-in February 24

It's here, it's here!!! I can't believe that this BIG walk that I've been training for for 5 months is finally here :) I'll be heading down to my mom's on Wednesday and then we head down to Savannah Thursday. The first leg of the walk starts bright and early Friday morning - a nice 21.5 miles, followed by 18.5 miles on Saturday and a nice 10 miles on Sunday...I'm so excited!!! As of now, the weather is supposed to be great - a little on the warm side towards the afternoon, but I'll take that over rain! I'll be back home Monday, so my next check-in won't be for 2 weeks - but I'll try to post an update or two on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram during the event! Thanks to all who have been cheering me on :)
February Goals:
  • 10K steps M-F, at least 7,500 steps on the weekend - 4/5, 2/2
  • 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.

***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. *Waves pom-poms* You got this. Best wishes to you, your mom, and your fellow walkers - plus all those supporting the event. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  2. Kristin,
    Best wishes with this special walk for MS! It sounds as if you have trained and prepared well for it, so it should be enjoyable. Have a super week. :)

  3. I just wanted to swing by and say thank you for walking for MS! My mother has suffered from MS since I was a child and she now is completely wheelchair bound and in a home. What I would give for a cure...
