    Default I will walk 2016 miles

    I'm putting this in the challenge section instead of the journal section because I'd love some people to join me in a walking challenge.
    I've been inspired by a man called Ben Pobjoy (you can google him) to walk 2016 miles in 2016. He did kilometers but I already walk a lot and run a few times a week and doing the Maths I thought that was too easy for me- I want to push myself! With this challenge I'll have to walk an average of 8.9km a day to make it. That's a serious challenge! I'm thinking that on the days I go for a run I'll be able to bank some extra kms, and not have to walk quite so much on the other days.
    I currently run 5k 3 times a week- one of them used to be a longer run of 10k but I was having back problems so cut it back to 5k and swapped to walking the 3.5k to work 2 or 3 times a week. I'm on my feet at work a fair bit and am fairly active in general (I don't drive so have to walk most places!) so I reckon I can do this.
    I have a vivofit to track my distances and will upload them weekly.

    I love this! I'm a runner as well and have been feeling a bit unmotivated the last couple of months.

    I'm in πŸ‘

    Interesting as I was given an Apple Watch for Christmas and it tracks your steps. I do cross fit now 6 times a week and today I took 12753 steps doing one class and then just my usual walking (chasing kids etc).
    @ArthurDent good time to start cross fit?

    I would have to get an activity tracker before I could join but it sounds like fun!

    Lol, yes! I haven't forgotten about that! I tend to go better injury wise if I do some x-training as well as run so it could work well πŸ˜‰

    I should have clarified it equated to 12km today. So yep I'll give it a go.

    Bahaha!
    I do love them though, seen them live three times and have most of their albums.
    (I don't know if I should admit this!)
    Really though, you've inspired me to get moving, so thanks!
