Thursday Thirteen--my new walking goal

--the distance to Lakeside, OH and back by Labor Day. I'm not really walking to Lakeside, just counting the miles while I walk. Getting in shape for a trip to Ireland in the fall.

1. 250 miles to Lakeside round trip.
2. 100 days between Pentecost and Labor Day.
3. That's about 2.5 miles per day
4. Walk early--might be in the 90s today.
5. Wear good shoes.
6. And thick socks.
7. Wear sun screen.
8. Drink a lot of water.
9. Stretch before starting.
10. Listen to some good audio-books while walking.
11. Maintain good posture.
12. Take a long the camera for special moments.
13. Keep track on the ticker.

Can you keep track of the progress you make to and from Lakeside on a map? That might motivate you! Being the geek I am, I would probably find a way to post a map on my blog giving my progress.

Looks as if you have it all planned out. Best of luck to you.

A trip to Ireland would be a great motivator!

It seems like you've laid out a great plan to follow, I really like the idea of listening to audio books - a nice change from music for sure.

Rex Stout books are great for walking. Lots of action.

Sounds like an admirable goal, and a wonderful reason, too. I'd love to go to Ireland some day.

And when you're done come organize my walking! I might get motivated to do more than these low impact diddly squats. Ireland sounds like great motivation.

Thanks for visiting my T13!
