Come Walk with Me (Week 2&3)
I have been a little behind on my blogging as my family and I finally got to go away on vacation for a little while. Although I have been on vacation I have not forgotten about #MonthlyMileClub and am still working towards my goal of 50 miles for the month of July and 200 miles as a community in the month of July.
I swear I think the only thing that has kept even remotely close to my goal is that I am working on a community garden at my work. Every day that it does not rain I usually spend about an hour and half dragging and setting up about 200 feet of hose and watering the twenty raised beds in our garden. This alone has a tendency to help me get my first mile in for the day without any extra planned exercise. I also try to walk around the class room a lot when I am leading groups. I’m pretty sure my kids think I’m crazy because I just walk circles around the room while I’m talking to them.
I don’t know about you but I have a toddler who never stops moving and never wants to sit down. Over the last few weeks this has also definitely helped me keep up with my steps. Most days it seems like I spend most of my evening running back and forth down the hallway in our house and playing chase. It’s one of our favorite things to do.
I’ll admit I have lost some ground while traveling on our vacation because we have had to travel about 9 hours to both get to the beach and come back home. But being at the beach has also had it’s advantages as we have been walking a good bit exploring and shopping around the small towns that surround us. Of course we have also enjoyed some late night crab hunting and walks on the beach.
I’m pretty excited because I just checked the #MonthlyMileClub website and I am a little less than 2 miles away from reaching my monthly goal. I’ve decided to extend goal and hope to walk 20 more miles during this upcoming last week of the month. It’s still not to late to join in on the fun before the end of July.
