Rather than listing every time I walk anywhere I have been keeping a separate record and will just update the progress in order to keep track.
- Total for week 2 = 21 miles
- Average per day for this week (21 / 7) = 3
- Running total = 25 + 21 = 46 miles
- Miles left to walk in 2018 (1050 – 46) = 1004
Keeping such a record and being conscious of this challenge has had quite an impact on my motivation to achieve this. I am constantly looking for opportunities to clock up these miles which is having a positive impact on my resolve to get fitter!
For example, offering to accompany my father when he took his dog for a walk every morning in Portugal recently and making a point of refusing lifts to and from the station from my husband!
