Day 31 - Made it!
(255.59 to be exact).
Day 30 - Last day tomorrow! (yay!)
The second time around the block saw that injury from yesterday return (but not quite as bad) so I completed the second lap, limping all the way. With 7 minutes left before the midnight "rollover" of steps on the watch, I abandoned the third lap and limped up and down the driveway to clock in an extra 200 steps or so. Steps do not go on actual leg movements so I actually had to take more steps to cover the same distance since my limps are shorter due to the injury. Steps are calculated via GPS distance travelled. The distance is divided by the average step distance (mine is set at 71cm per step). The important thing is to get the distance in which clocks up the steps.
Day 29 - Oh no! :-( Injured!
I thought it prudent to stop at that point, since I need to be back in shape tomorrow (and the next day) to finish this challenge, hopefully clocking up a total distance of 250kms.
I only have 15.31 km to go and since I average 8.09km a day, I should reach that goal provided my legs work OK tomorrow. Even if I have to hobble around the block 21 times each day I am determined not to give up now. Let's just hope the "pegs" are fully functional by tomorrow night, else each walk will take 1.5 hours instead of 30 minutes.
Day 28 - Three days left (Thank goodness!......it's getting hotter!)
Day 27 - 4 days to go!
Day 26 - Over the 200km mark and only 5 days to go!
Day 25 - zero point zero three km (100 feet) short of 200km!!
Day 24 - 7 days to go! ☺
Day 23 - Approaching 200km mark!
Day 22 - A day like any other
Day 21 - How do I keep on going? Desire to help the Heart Foundation, Lite 'n Easy, water and sleep :-)
(fantastic value and great tasting food!)
Day 20 - On the home stretch (only "legs-11" days to go!)
Day 19 - 12 days to go!
