Come Walk With Me Report - Week 9


Jay and Emmy Bo finds a field in the middle of the woods. We will come back for pic-nic next time. :D


I am proud and happy for my great efforts of walking this week. I have been walking my butt off. This is my report from Come Walk With Me - Week 9:

Monday : 45 minutes
Tuesday: 45 minutes
Wednesday: 40 minutes up hill
Thursday: 30 minutes
Friday: 45 minutes up hill
Saturday: 45 minutes
Sunday: No walking so far...
TOTAL: 250 minutes (4 hours 10 minutes) :D


My goal was 30 minutes a day. I have done even more than that...  It comes down to 41 minutes a day, excluding Sunday... Well done me!!! :D

And this is a report that just came from Simone at Kolora. It made me very happy!
"Well done :)))
I ran for 4 km this week (3 km is normally the limit) and sadly had bad headache the rest of the day...but the rest of my body was happy! And I still walk a lot upstairs and downstairs as we live in the first and second floor of a really old house with lots of stairs. I walked the kids to school and had to pick them up due to the broken foot...I cycled to the physiotherapist twice with my son! Hmmm, it was a good week I think! Enjoy the rest of the Sunday! Simone"


My favorite walk this week was when we went for a walk in the woods, me and Jay and Emmy Bo with a friend. The woods are so lush and green right now. It is just amazing. Wild flowers popping up everywhere. All muddy after all the rain, but with boots on - who cares?

Lets make a list of our Top 10 Walking Songs, shall we?
I have to admit that I am starting to get tired of my Walking Music selection on my iPod at this point. I have actually started to walk without the iPod just having nature as company for my ears. It is very calming and nice. But at work for example, I really miss the beat to get a really brisk walk done. Any suggestion on good songs to add? What do you listen to when walking? Let me know and I'll publish our Top 10 Walking Songs list later this week. :D




Bottle belt or not?
As weather is getting warmer I am also starting to get more hot and thirsty when walking. I think I am going to purchase one of these for my longer walks. A bottle belt. Is there anyone of you girls who has one of these and can tell me if they are good or bad? I guess I could just bring a bottle and hold it in my hand but having a belt seems more comfortable somehow... And it makes me look more sporty, which is a plus. :D







So, how did you do this week. Are you still enjoying your walks? Are you still getting out there?

Come Walk With Me - Week 10
I will keep on walking, hopefully just as well as I did this week, a minimum of 30 minutes a day. Little Emmy Bo's birthday is coming up which needs quite a lot of attention but I'll do my best. And just like last week I am gonna do the up hill challenge. Up up up. Maybe I will be able to sqeeze in 3 days of walking up hill this week. That will be my goal. Yes. What is your goal?

Happy walking ladies and see you soon.

  1. Well done for you! I had one 30 min walk with a friend. It was our third short week in a row - April is horrible with public holidays and events and family things, our routine is bust.
    Wish I had nice woods nearby.

  3. Well done! Your woodland walk looks lovely! We have a beautiful woodland nearby with bluebells out at the moment! We had a lovely walk there this afternoon.

  5. Hello Annette!
    I've just come across your "Come Walk With Me" postings! That's a great idea! Are people still joining? If so, I'm in!
    I have a sitting down job too, but right now I'm on my summer break.
    I have been trying to walk 45 minutes each day, usually in the morning before breakfast (unless it's teeming with rain). Any other walk I do in the day (usually in the evenings at this time of the year), is a bonus.
    I haven't taken my walking poles out yet this year as I had a sore wrist, but I hope to get started on that again and increase my pace.
    Walking with you!
    Sandra
