Around the world in 80 days - please post steps/miles/kms for Sunday 7 February (Part 1)

Dear Travellers

So thrilled that you all managed to clock up some steps yesterday in spite of the awful weather. Well except for Lucca who was last seen discussing the Californian grape varieties with Ricky!!

I was at 40th birthday party last night and danced and danced and danced. Clocked up 9.6kms - woohoo!

Today we are on the island of Sakhalin enjoying the nature at its finest. Lots of hiking, seal watching and scuba diving.

Happy Travels everyone πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  • Hi Lizzy,

    Wow, that picture of Sakhalin is really beautiful. I'm definitely looking forward to our stay there, all that hiking, seal watching and scuba diving. An active day for all. Will pop back later with my kms. :-)

    Lowcal :-)

  • Oh no - I've been named and shamed in the main post - I feel so bad ;-) :-D You just wait 'til you see my kms for today !! (And even Mr Lucca has been busy !!)

  • 14km today

  • Woohoo K_o_g! Fantastic K's :)

  • 6.5km today:-)

  • Well done Suzybenj :)

  • 7.5 kms today for me

  • Woohoo Beryl, that's your 10,000 steps! :)

  • Really? Wow I did most of it at a gym session I had as part of a spa day gift from my daughter - chuffed I am 😊 The machine was notching up kms not steps !

  • WTG you! That's a fantastic achievement! No wonder you're chuffed! :)

    Thank you very much Beryl's daughter! :)

  • Hi, Sorry for not responding sooner I am on holiday and this is the first time I am able to log my miles. Friday I did 6.5 km, Saturday was 12 km and Sunday 6.5 km :-)

  • Not to worry 20voices, I hope you're having a smashing time :) Well done for still managing to clock up some fab K's! :)

  • Been needing this holiday for a while. Nice to see the sun and have warm weather for a change. :-)

  • Oh thanks for rubbing it in that we're left behind in the atrocious British weather! ;)

    Have a fab time and tell us all about it when you get back :)

  • Hi Lizzy, Moreless & Everyone,

    I have done 4km on the rowing machine today and also 2.5km walking, so that makes a total of 6.5kms for today.

    Lowcal :-)

  • You are so clever to be able to do 4K's on the rowing machine Lowcal. I wish I could! ;)

  • Stick with it moreless - you'll get there :-)

  • I'm only up to 45 strokes at a time - it's a number too small to record. It's a total of about 1/2K/day! :D I shall keep adding to it slowly, maybe one day I'll manage to row all the way across the room! :D

  • Oh no - you're not suffering with the floods again are you :-P

  • Not yet, but I shall be prepared if we do...........except the rowing machine has a big gap in the bottom and weighs almost as much as me! :o :D

  • You should rename it 'Titanic' :-)

  • My kms for today 7th Feb are 2.01. Hope everyone is enjoying their visit to the island of Sakhalin.

  • Well done Marianne :)

    Sakhalin is just what the doctor ordered :)

  • Yes it is and the company is splendid.

  • Oh it certainly is! :)

  • Woohoo Liz! That must have been some party! It sounds as if you had a fantastic time. I hope you remembered to be cautious with the calorie consumption, don't forget it's weigh-in monday tomorrow and you don't want Lowcal on your case! ;)

    Oh, I'm loving the look and sound of Sakhalin, it definitely sounds my cup of tea. What a clever old stick you are finding it for us :)

    What a day today has been, weatherwise. I dragged my OH and grandson on a walk with gale force winds, rain, hail, sleet and snow! What a fantastic supporters club they are for me! :)

    My totals today are:

    Walking - 14.26

    Cycling - 3.24

    Total - 17.5K's :)

  • Hi Moreless,

    That's a fantastic number of kms - you should add in the 0.5 km you've done on the rowing machine though! It all counts! :-)

    Lowcal :-)

  • I'm actually cheating a little bit Lowcal, I'm saving up all the 1/2K's to make round numbers next week :)

    I hope that confession doesn't get me walking the plank! :o

  • lol :-)

  • Ok - kms for today. After our disastrous day yesterday when we were ultra lazy, we have attempted to redeem ourselves today :-)

    Mr L - 6.2k run + 3.7k dog walk = 9.9k

    Me - 10.3k run + 9.7k dog walks = 20k :-) :-)

    I donned my waterproof trousers and went for a 6k walk just in order to get my totals up this afternoon ! Hope you all realise the dedication I have to the cause and they'll be less of this sarcasm directed towards me in future ;-) :-D

  • Is that it??!! After the big up earlier, I was expecting something good from the pair of you, not mediocrity........................... :D :D :D

    You know you thrive on the sarcasm really :D

  • Ha Ha ! At least we are making our totals up on two legs - none of this namby pamby pedal assisted stuff ;-)

    Anyway, judging by the smell of deep heat emanating from Mr L's direction I think he feels the 6.2k was a run too far at the moment with his bad leg !! :-D

  • Don't forget the even nambier pambier oar assisted stuff! :D

    I've heard of man flu, but I think man tendonitis is just pushing it! ;) :D

  • Hi all,

    Saturday's kms for me = 4.77

    Won't put up today's just yet as I am hoping I will be able to get out for a couch to 5k run later.

  • Ooh, that sounds promising lynalla :)

  • Don't know, it's chucking it down out there at the mo, so doubt I will get out for my run tonight πŸ˜” Suspect it will be a similar level to yesterday.

  • This weather's playing havoc with out trip! ;)

  • 7:2km :)

  • Great stuff Cazmaz :)

  • Nice work with the dancing - the funnest exercise ever!

    No dancing for me, I am flagging a little after such a busy week, so I just went to the gym. Managed a good 19.30kms.

  • Woohoo LtL! No wonder you're flagging! :)

  • 2.9 km today, mostly in snow so I'm sure it should count as more πŸ˜€

  • But sooooo much more fun! :)

  • 6.25 km for me today. I walked / ran in the park and than when I came home I remembered the steps so I hope it is accurate but tomorrow I will try to behave.

  • I'll believe that when I see it bd ;)

  • Morless you don't believe me! :( :) I came home so on high as I never went to the park for an hour and ....

    I guess I will have to prove it to you! :)

  • I believe the running and the walking bd, I just can't believe you're going to behave! :D :D :D

  • I knew exactly what you meant. :d

  • Only 1.5 km today confined to sick bay so only pottering πŸ˜•

    Mr F clocked up 8 kms doing dog walk if needed πŸ€”


  • Poor you Flossie, but you're doing exactly the right thing by letting Mr F take over for a bit.

    I'm sure Liz will be more than happy to add Mr F to the spreadsheet :)

    Thank you very much Mr F, you're a star! :)

  • 1 km only today. Still wiped out from being ill last week

  • Oh dear Aqua, this bug takes no prisoners! I hope you feel better soon.

  • 5245 steps today, woke up to a day off, lovely sunshine, and ANOTHER flippin cold, tight chest sore throat runny nose etc. Only just got over the last one !! Good job there's plenty of travellers so you're not relying on me for many ks. I've signed up for a mindfullness course starts tomorrow. Thought if this is going to be a repeat of last years back to back infections from Christmas to Easter and I'm going to be curled under a blanket, I'd like to do something constructive - well it's more productive than iPad jigsaws lol β˜€οΈπŸ€’

  • Oh no Fran! :( Are you working with lots of bug infested people?

    Have fun at your mindfulness class tomorrow, it sounds really interesting.

    Your K's are absolutely fine too :)

  • Thanks Moreless. Last year I was diagnosed with an immune deficiency, thankfully the least serious type, but it explains why I pick up so many bugs. I work in an NHS community team, and at the moment all the patients and the staff are poorly! β˜€οΈ

  • The time in my life when I was my most ill, was when I was working in a hospital!

    Fingers crossed that you don't just keep passing the bugs back and fore and that you're on the mend pronto :)

  • hi Lizzy i thought it said you where 40 must put on my reading glasses i don't want people think i'm being cheeky or rude. my steps for today was 562 hope to improve tomorrow take care Alan xx

  • I wouldn't be able to read a thing without my glasses Alan! :)

    All steps are good steps and hopefully you'll manage a lot more tomorrow :)

  • hi there i can just manage but also get what been said so i should wear them, we let's put it this way you would need your glasses if you saw the size of me 6 ft 3, inches 20 1/2 stone take care your friend Always Alan xx

  • Am no sure what continent we are now on but it looks heavenly

    Sunday spent napping and reading. 3.75k

  • Sounds like the perfect sunday Gonti :)

  • Hi there not been able to do much this week as still have stitches and I am sure fitbit is not recording properly had it on my wrist and figures seem too high compared with on my jeans pocket ,it is the clip type, so what I did sat was walked 2.7 miles according to rnun keeper yesterday sun walked about 2 miles with friend at leisurely pace as she cant walk very wel and it was freezing. Hope to get swimming today. good luck everyone feel great being fitter and the sun is shining wind is very strong was hard to walk sat like climbing along a flat mountain!!

  • Hi Lizzie, thanks for your totals. Don't forget all K's are good K's, especially when completed with stitches and gale force winds! :)

    Hope that toe gets sorted soon, enjoy your swim :)

  • Sunday 2.3 km's and 2 boxes packed, and 2 bags sorted for recycling!! Am making a dent in it now 😊 also dare I say I think I'm feeling a bit better!! Still very crackly chest and pains but not so bad- woohoo hallybloomingloolia πŸ˜„

  • Well done you I still think that 1k spent packing boxes when feeling ill should attract a bonus kilometre!!. Plus extra kilmetre for using very long words like "woohoo hallybloomingloolia"

  • I like the sound of that Gonti πŸ˜ƒ

  • I agree with Gonti, veganista, well done you! :)

    I'm thrilled to hear you're feeling better too :)

  • Thankyou moreless πŸ˜ƒ
