I have hurt my leg. I hope it's not serious but at the moment my walking is limited to hobbling from one room to another.

Didn't walk today, but the time I spent on my other exercises, more than constitutes a mile plus.

I'm definitely in for this challenge. After being sick with upper respiratory infection for much of April, I've started focusing on building up my strength and endurance with walking daily.

Time for our Exercise MC this month!

Let's get out our pedometers & see how many miles, as a team, we can walk for this weeks Exercise Mini-Challenge! Walking can be so beneficial for all body functions AND it can be counted as minutes exercised, if you wish for your tracker.

For the Team Challenge though, we'll post in miles. Below is an example of how we'll each post what we've walked:

IMW: 4 (Individual Miles Walked)
TIMW: 6 (Total Ind Miles Walked)
TMW: 22 (Total Miles Walked as a Group)

On each post you make, just add your IMW to the previous posters' TMW and that way we'll keep a running total of both the TMW and your personal TIMW through next Sunday.

To complete the MC, walk just 4 days out of the 7 that the MC is in effect, whether it's a 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile or multiple miles. We will keep track of it up to 2 decimal points and it will be tabulated like this:
Example:
If I am the first one to walk and I walk 2 miles on Monday, I would post:
IMW: 2
TIMW: 2
TMW: 2

The next person's first post would look like:
IMW: 1
TIMW: 1
TMW: 3

Then if I posted again, it would be:
IMW: 1
TIMW: 3
TMW: 4

Count only 'planned' walks, not just the normal roaming about we do during the day as in grocery store shopping, etc. If you make a planning a walk with the dog, count it! I know Rover will!

Also, running will count, so if you run, this is the MC for you! Too, the elliptical counts, the stair stepper and so does the cycle machine, if you're at a gym. This is also the first time we are going to count swimming in the mix. If you swim a half of a mile, not bobbing, but swimming...count it!

The purpose of this MC is to just get our legs MOVING! Our legs hold the largest muscle in our bodies! Let's use that to our benefit, shall we?

HINT: For this MC, there is a free smartphone app I use called CardioTrainer by WorkSmart Labs, Inc. You can put reminders in it for walking, plus it maps your course, gives speed, distance & also tells you how many calories you burned on the walk. They have a Pro version you can pay for but the free version works just fine for my purposes and I've had it for over It doesn't matter the distance, just get moving!

Now, since we have so many new members, let's really hoof it! Who's walking?

Hugs ya'll!
