Around the world in 80 days - please post kms/steps/miles for Wednesday 3 February (Part 1)

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 😎

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. 😊

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?) ?

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

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 :)

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 👏🏾👏🏾

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.
