Around the world in 80 days - please post your steps/kms/miles for Monday 8 February (Part 1)

Morning Travellers,

I hope everyone enjoyed the 70's disco last night on board the steamer.

Well done for clocking up oodles of kms. I'm sure we will have enough for day trips all the way to San Francisco.

Today our day trip is to Kamchatka Peninsula in the eastern point of Russia. There are hot geysers, volcanoes, bears and plenty of snow. It's going to be an action packed day to kick off the start of the week. See you at the top of the ski slope :D

Happy Travels everyone 😊😊😊

  • Sunday; 1.25km dog walking, 2.25km run. 15 minutes lawn mowing too; don't know how many steps for that :-)

  • Good grief Concerned, how were you able to manage mowing the lawn at this time of year? You are in the UK aren't you? You could do with some kind of step counter, for just such activities :)

  • Wow! My lawn is underwater!

  • Same here!

  • Hi Concerned, I hope everything's ok, only we haven't had any Kms from you for a week :)

  • That's cos I haven't done anything for a week :-) . Seriously, I lost track and knew I'd have to back-track to find when I had posted.

    Monday; 1.25km dog walk

    Tuesday; 1.25km dog walk; cycle to business park 2.8km

    Wednesday; 1.25km dog walk

    Thursday; 1.25km dog walk

    Friday; 1.25km dog walk

    Saturday; 0.6km dog walk

    Sunday; 2.2km dog walk

    Friday and Saturday we helped my daughter move, so once again I've missed an opportunity to monitor steps, heavy lifting, climbing fences, and back-ache.

    No running :-(

  • That's not nothing! :) Great memory and great totals, thanks! :)

    Take care of that sore back and I'm sure you'll get some runs in soon :)

  • Good morning Lizzy, it's cold but beautiful and I've got 4km of running to report for Monday so far. I think that'll be it for today, but hope to send loads more kms your way during the week. Happy travels :)

  • Well done Ruth! You're sounding very positive today. Here's to all those K's you're going to clock up :)

  • Morning all!

  • Ooh skiing in Kamchatka - brilliant. Hope I don't hurt my knees though. And hope nobody is taking pictures as my cheeks will be all red from the cold.

    Will post kms on the later thread - when I've done them!

    Happy traveling!

  • Would that be from falling on your bottom JC? ;)

    800 calories burned - ' spending money' for my holiday!!!

  • Fantastic Suzymac, you're going to be able to have a terrific holiday :)

  • first day of new rowing machine........there are muscles that obviously didn't get used on the old crosstrainer. manage to clock up 5kms today , going to take a while to get up to 10kms or more on this baby! hubby reckons he is training for the Olympic rowing team now and he never does any exercise

  • You're doing a heck of a lot better than me Linda, I can barely manage 5 metres!! :o Well done you :)

  • 1k

  • Well done Suzy :)

  • 4.7 km for me today. Didn't do much walking tody. Planned too much but ended up with hardly anything! I guess it is one of those days. Anyway found a trick I should only wear the pedometer out doors.

  • Still good K's bd :)

    What happens if you wear the pedometer indoors bd? :o

  • If I wear the pedometer indoors than it is one figure and than I go out with it. It jumps. They are not supposed to be very accurate for indoors unless I will come home write down the figure and than wear it indoors and ad that up. I guess I will have to keep experimenting.

  • Hmmm pedometers are a bit unreliable, especially indoors. You're maybe as well just wearing it outside.

  • That way I will get some frest air! :)

  • It's a win, win :)

  • I knew learning Russian for a year would come in handy! 7665 steps for today.

  • Spacibo Saga, otlichno srabotano! :)

  • Blimey this website is playing-up today!

    2 miles & 2km and no stick insects today just a very fit muscly guy (Idris Elba look-alike) on my treadmill- it has to be monday , no make up and blurry eyes when you encounter these people doesnt it? aah tis a cruel world sometimes... ; )

  • That's why all the sticks attend the gyms in full make-up and designer lycra. It's nothing to do with getting fit! ;)

    Well done MR :)

  • Hi Lizzy, Moreless & Everyone,

    I'm looking forward to reading this thread through tomorrow, as I love seeing how everyone is doing - very motivating. But in the meantime, here are my results:

    Walking: 1.5 kms

    Rowing: 4kms

    Total = 5.5 kms.

    I didn't go to the gym today, but hope to get there later this week!

    Lowcal :-)

  • Well done Lowcal, the gym bunnies will have missed you today, as you're a regular now :)

  • I decided to go back up the slope.

    After a ****ty day at work, and finding out the roof is leaking into my bedroom, I hit the spin classes again.

    I did a double session after work and clocked up a further 51km in 90 minutes.

    Therefore my total today is 80km.

    I am currently stuffing my face!

    I will require someone to carry me for the next two days, which I will be using to rest!

  • Oh my good golly! That's beyond ridiculous Geza! I'm lost for words and that doesn't happen to me often :)


  • I'm lost for everything after that, haha! Just put me on the cruise ship and let it take me somewhere! :)

  • I have a sun lounger reserved just for you :)

  • Awesome! Can I have an extra long straw that reaches to the bar? I will just ask them to attach it to the beer tap! :)

  • Never mind a straw, let's just go for a hose! :D

    I don't like hills much! :o

  • Hi All...11.8kms today...5k run, plenty of housework and a bootcamp class tonight πŸ˜€

    Total - 18K's :)

  • Fantastic Kms, Moreless. :-)

  • Thanks Lowcal :)

  • Gutted. I have fallen at the first hurdle. I have not made my planned mileage of 10kms 😞 I have only managed11213 steps, 7.6 miles. I am looking after another dog and it's easier to walk them on the moor than do a road walk were I walk further. I should be back to normal after Wednesday but not a good start to my week.

    I'll shake my feathers, tomorrow is another day......and another target. Bring on Happy Tuesday!

  • Loving the enthusiasm and positivity Bu-dog :)

  • Er, that would be 11213 steps, 7.6 kms. Wishful thinking it was miles lol

  • It's still a great number Bu-dog and more than your 10,000 steps/day :)
