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 ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

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 :)

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 :-(

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!

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.

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.

Reporting in for the evening with 12.1 km on the pedometer (most of it skiing down mountains in Kamchatka). No really 1 excellent run this morning and 1 good walk after work. Was surprisingly fast today. We're getting the wind over here in Germany now - should be interesting tomorrow.

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!

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!

Gutted. I have fallen at the first hurdle. I have not made my planned mileage of 10kms ๐Ÿ˜ž 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!
