Week 8 walking progress:

  • Total for week 8 = 25 miles
  • Average per day for this week (25 / 7) = 3.57
  • Running total = 187 + 25 = 212 miles
  • Miles left to walk in 2018 (1050 – 212) = 838

 

Week 9 walking progress:

  • Total for week 9 = 28 miles
  • Average per day for this week (28 / 7) = 4
  • Running total = 212 + 28 = 240 miles
  • Miles left to walk in 2018 (1050 – 240) = 810

 

A couple of decent weeks of walking progress… the most exciting 16 of these miles were racked up in Switzerland on a last weeks’ hiking weekend! It was fantastic to hike in soft powdery pure white snow.

Little did I know that I would come back to snow in the UK… and have just completed a 9 mile hike in local snow this morning! It was melting so was muddy and slushy and I managed to fall over twice…

I’ve now actually started to use Map My Walk too rather than estimating my mileage using Google Maps… I downloaded this app to my phone a couple of years ago but have never bothered to use it… until now…

In addition, a quick check on annual progress towards target:

  • Monthly average for January and February 2018 (240 / 2) = 120 miles per month
  • Daily average for January and February (240 / 60) = 4 miles a day
  • Monthly average left for the next 10 months (810 / 10) = 81
  • Daily average left for the next 10 months (81 / 30) = 2.7

So if I keep up this rate of mileage (around 120 miles per month) I should reach my target to walk 1050 miles in 2018 some time in September! It will be interesting to see what happens and if I achieve this…
