Dear Travellers

We are halfway through our around the world challenge. And we are doing so great and having so much fun, which is what it's all about :D :D

This morning we have arrived in Beijing and we are going to see the sunrise over the Great Wall of China.

Yesterday I clocked up 7.82kms. More marching on the spot, this time in the kitchen waiting for the kettle boil :D :D

Happy travels everyone 😊😊😊😊

Phew, you are obviously a morning person! I got up, fed the cats, made a cup of tea and came back to bed. I reckon I have 10 mins with my book before I have to get up for work. Have a great day 😎

I've always wanted to visit - I just never got there :)

6 km's.

Great K's :)

Wow, another fantastic sight on our travels. I think I'll copy your marching on the spot idea to boost my km total, it sounds like a good plan.

Five days of ks to report in hunny, usual hassle getting onto site. So from last Friday, Fri 10k, Sat 6.5k, Sun 6.5k, Mon 8k, Tue 18k. Yet to do todays, not sure what will be achieved as about to start a 'bakethon' for banana cake orders, plus a couple of lemon cakes and scones. Also a mountain of pikelets to do. In work tonight, but somewhere inbetween I will be walking the dog - for how far is the million dollar question. 😊

Hidden in reply to moreless

Pandas on the moon wearing roller skates? Oh and pink tutu's? Oh and drinking long island ice tea through a straw with one of those irritating umbrellas in it (who designed those anyway and why?) ?

Sign me up!

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

All of the above! Probably designed by someone who'd had one too many long island iced teas! :D

Signed, sealed and delivered! Welcome aboard! :)

Crumbs Liz, if you can clock up that many K's waiting for the kettle to boil, you either need a new kettle, or we'll be seeing you compete in Rio this year! :D

My totals today are:

Cycling - 17.28

Rowing - 0.22

Total - 17.5K's :)

I love your fitbit too Saga! :D

Today's total is 12.4 k. Feeling good and wanted to do more, but the tour guide on The Great Wall was just so interesting I had to stop and listen. Amazing views and such a fantastic country. Ate chickens feet for lunch. Looking forward to a hot pot tonight.

Hi moreless,

Thanks for your kind words {{{{hug}}}}

morelessAdministrator in reply to flossie358

It's scary how many people have been struck down by it and just how much it's affected you all. I feel very fortunate to have escaped it...............so far! :o

You just do what you can do, without pushing things too far and we'll send healing vibes :)

Well I love a round number, after my "speed" training with dh this evening I realised I was on 23,500 steps so he kindly dropped me off at the roundabout so I could make 25,000 and get a wee Fitbit badge, however when I got home I realised it was 19.85km and I know Lizzie has already told me she doesn't round up, so I have just done a bit of jogging on the landing to get it to 20kms so now I can post, breathes sigh of relief πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ

morelessAdministrator in reply to Prin

Hahahahaha Prin! By the time this challenge is over, I can see that there;s going to be a lot of worn patches in carpets! :D

Loving that beautiful round number, it's very worthy of a badge :)

Liz is it really awkward that one minute i'm doing miles and the next its km?

Only some days at the gym the stick insect people are running on "my treadmill" (how dare they!) and that means i have to use a different machine and they all vary between miles and km.

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

It makes no difference at all MR, Lizzy's a maths whiz kid :D

Hidden in reply to moreless

So the stick insect people get to live another day ; )

Oh, I wouldn't go that far! :D

Not my best day - 6.5km. Shame I could have walked for miles on that great big wall!
