Week in review 2-8 March 2015/Walk in her shoes update
Posted On 9 March 2015
Last week’s goals:
21,000 steps per day: 7/7 days (average 22,900 steps a day)
Go to bed before 11.45 pm: 6/7 days
This week has been another busy training week for Walk in Her Shoes. I’m excited to have reached (and exceeded) my fundraising goal of $500, so a huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far.
If you’d like to contribute, my sponsorship page is here.
I’ve ticked off a couple of achievements this week:
I did my first sub-30 minute 3 km walk, which was made all the more difficult by it being still dark and the pavement being very uneven in places. When did it get so dark in the morning? When I first started walking in January I’d see the sun rise. Now it’s dark when I get up and still dark when I get home, and I can hardly see where I’m going!
I beat my longest walk from last year of 12.21 km on Saturday morning. 12.45 km in 2 hours 13 minutes.
I’ve somehow gone from weekend walks being 7-8 km in about 90 minutes to over 10 km in 2 hours. That’s starting to feel normal, which is kind of weird, because I never intended to walk that far. It just started to happen.
There’s only a week to go until the challenge kicks off, so this is my last week of training. After that my unofficial step goal goes up to 25,000 steps a day and I expect I’ll be spending every spare minute of the day (remember those?) walking.
