Finally off antibiotics, nearly two weeks of them. Hopefully back and on track now.

Take care Rfc - 2 weeks on antibiotics has surely taken its toll. x

Thank you. It has been stressful, not only the antibiotics but an urgent referral to the breast care center because my doctor didn’t like the rash. Luckily it was just a cyst, but had a few sleepless nights. Time to get back to it now though. Xxx

Oh dear. Glad it wasn't a larger problem but the stress must have been terrible and not great when you're already ill

Oh Rfc, I hate to admit it, but I've not done at all well! My walking is still sporadic. I had hoped to use this challenge to get back into a routine, but it hasn't happened. But at least I'm more focused now - I've got a plan to walk to the coffee shop in the next village three times a week. Last week was the first, and I managed two, so all is not lost!

Don’t be so hard on yourself, it takes a while to get into new routines in a new place. As I would say to MrRfc, we get “ upskittilled”. I know it is not a proper word but it does seem to emcompass how it feels sometimes. 😀.

Oh Kay. The best part of not doing well on a challenge is that we can start another right away. And even when I don't hit many of the goals at all, it's a good check in to see how I'm doing and what are my obstacles to them.

Well. Not the best. Getting out after dinner is really tough for me, though the challenge did force me out the door some days. I think adding walks at lunch would be easier, perhaps I'll think about that for a future challenge. Will need to put my thinking cap on for something achievable, but still stretching my efforts.

Happy walking everyone.

Hi runswithdogs - I really am starting to think that our bodies run in cycles. For months things go well and then something goes awry and we lose control! Then it's really hard to get back in the groove! It's become a real effort for me to get out too - still, onwards and upwards for both of us, with the hope that we'll stay on the wagon from now on!

I would agree Kay. My running has always had a yearly trend, starting with longer distances and more outings in December/January, reaching a peak in about June and then dropping to shorter runs between July and December. I don't plan it that way, it just seems to happen. I'm trying to pay attention to it this year, and up my activities in these in between months.

You're so positive, runswithdogs! After all the adversity you've had to cope with over the last year or so, you'll work things out, that's for sure! :)

Well, I stuck to my walking 5k three times a week and jive class once a week, but cycling 20 minutes on my turbo trainer 3 times a week was reduced to twice a week as I decided I needed one day off a week! I also signed up to a challenge of walking 80k during October and this morning I reached 80.18k with one week left to go. Feeling very pleased with myself!

You truly deserve one day a week off - enjoy doing absolutely nothing, we need rest and relaxation just as much as we need exercise. You are doing so well!
