I tried using poles for the first time today. I have to work on my technique. Which will take time.. It was fun in the snow, I did hit a patch of ice, slipped but didn't fall..

I can't wait until tomorrow!! emoticon

Julie, I haven't started walking with poles yet. I ordered boots for my poles, last night. Hopefully they will arrive soon, then I will start with poles. I have been viewing youtube, on the how to's. I also plan to go to the library, to see if they have any dvds..

As you can see I have my pedometer back. I put in a new battery, so hopefully that should solve the problem.

I hope your pedometer is okay!

Okay, chung shi walkers are shoes??? I though it was the way you walk or run. I will go check out the website you are talking about. And as far as reliable pedometer's go, mine was great until I changed the battery a month ago. Now it is very unreliable. I'll keep trying and looking, but I sure know mine has been one of the best tools for getting me to walk, besides my poles.

Team Total: 303,734 + 4,848 = 308,582

I wonder if there is a good, reliable pedometer! Mine did not work on Sunday when I put on miles running back and forth at church all morning, etc. I forgot about it yesterday and worked outdoors digging up old ground cover that had invaded beds of iris and the clematis. I remembered to put it on today and it was registering; whereas on 1/24, when I was cleaning like a fiend, I would look at it and it would appear to be blank. I should have never trusted it - & tried to get a new one at BBB.

Today I want to do another 4 circuits around the lake - which I had done on Friday, a gorgeous day. I had put singing lessons on my mp3 player and the time seemed to fly, and I felt no fatigue whatsoever for 2+ miles. Later, and now, I feel that "good ache" in my triceps and traps.
Here is a link which compares chung shi walkers with MBT. http://www.walkerswarehouse.com/chung-shi-
shoes.asp

I probably should have waited before buying the chung shi. They work well but are stiff.

Well I am sad to say my pedometer is not working again! emoticon It keeps stopping, so I have no idea what I am doing. So my totals are going to be a good guess. I have a pretty good idea what I do, it will be hard to count every step, I can keep track of miles, 1 mile = around 2000 steps for me. And as we have said before, every step counts. So for now, I will have to just keep track of my miles, and convert them to steps. The rest of my steps I will not count. I will hopefully get a new pedometer some time soon. (Note: some days my pedometer works, other days it does not.)

Happy Walking! emoticon

Julie,
Check your records back through 1/18. Your total was 62,037. Then on 1/19 you posted the steps for 1/18 as 5751 but you added them to an earlier personal total. 62,037 + 5751 = 67,788. That is just the way it looked to me.
Vaunda

Have the Chung shi answer available but it was long and needed to be edited.

So good to see you Vaunda!! WOW, you really added up those steps. Great job! I have to ask you, what is a "Chung ski walkers"? You sure did get a lot of steps in doing that! You sound like you really get a good workout in each day. My pedometer's batteries died, so I had to get a new one. I live in the country so it had taken me a while to get one. But all is better now!

Julie, I'm BAAACK!
I had left my journal at church after choir practice and was missing 1/13 – 8527 steps; 1/16 5509 steps; and 1/17 – 8411 steps; and 1/18 -- 9918 steps.
My total 39,251 on 1/9 plus 8527 + 5509 + 8411 + 9918 = 71,616
Add to team total 141,460 + 71,616 = team total of 213,076 steps.

My battery seemed to come and go on the missing days and I could not give a good reading. Then, when I attempted to change the battery - poof! The screen was again active - some glitch in the tightening of the screws was responsible for the blanks. So disappointing when I was dancing around like crazy doing housework, etc. while trying to help the team with lots of steps. I also noticed that I needed to keep it "loose" and free to jiggle on its own. In other words, if you wear something tight over it, it does not register unless it actually jiggles.

I am not a *star* but I am trying to remember to wear the thing each day and to keep an accurate record of its tally. I did 45 min of balance walking in my Chung shi walkers (20 degrees) with Swiss poles to add about 4100 steps on Sunday(2.0 miles or a little more); so my calorie count will be favorable.

Glad to see you are back! I hope that my pedometer is now accurate. I did 300 careful steps on my elliptical to calibrate on Sunday and it seemed to be 20 percent below my count. Off to Bed, Bath, and Beyond whenever I can! Is your new one accurate?

Vaunda

Hey SparkyVN you are doing such a great job getting in your steps!!

I am sad to say my pedometer needs a new battery. So until I can get to town and get a new one I will be cheering you on!

I hear what you are saying about the cold! I really don't like going out when the wind is blowing! I did not know they sold the Omron at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Thanks for the tip, I will have to share that with others. So glad you are walking with me!

I found a calibration setting on the pedometer that was more accurate in measuring steps. I set it to the maximum setting after experimenting. I also checked out the Omron that you mentioned. It looked good; and is available at Bed Bath and Beyond and would be subject to the 20% coupon.

Good to see you SparkyVN! Those numbers really went up having you here! Check out an "Omron" for a pedometer. They are great and keep track of everything! You can get them on amaizon.com for around 30.00. Well worth the price. I bought mine last April.

If you are interested in doing a "Year Challenge" with our team, we will be doing a 20,000,000 steps for the year, starting January 1, 2009.

Now you may be thinking, How are we going to do that? That's to many steps. Okay, lets break this down. If we have 10 people, and do only 6,000 steps per day, thats 42,000 steps per week, 180,600 steps per month, and 2,167,200 steps for the year. With 10 people doing this, the team will reach our goal of 20,000,000 steps for the year with no problem. We may even have to up the numbers!

So if you like to walk, pull out your poles and be sure to join the fun. You must have a pedometer to do this challenge. You can buy them at most sporting good stores, the web, wal-mart, etc. You can start anytime, post whenever you like, you can even stop if you like. The goal is to have fun and get some pole walking in.

As you log in your steps be sure to add them to the new total.
Example:
MySteps = 10,000
MyTotal = 80,000 + 10,000 = 90,000
TeamTotal = 300,000 + 10,000 = 310,000
The next person would add their total to 310,000

It really is a lot of fun, plus you get to see what you did as the year goes by.

Happy Walking! emoticon
