You know now that I asked this question I am actually pretty curious how many miles I actually walk / run a day. I usually do 2 miles a day on the treadmill and walk another mile by walking the dog etc etc. But I would have to have the cell phone on me at all times to actually register the correct mileage I do have the iwatch but almost never wear it maybe should rethink that

I pretty much have my phone in my pocket all the time. I don't have an iWatch or FitBit, or anything, but might do so for this.

I have a Samsung smartwatch, I forget the model, I usually wear it because I don't l like my phone in my pocket all the time at work and can check messages while I'm anywhere in the lab. So I have a general idea of how many steps I walk, I use the Strava app on it to record the runs so I know how much to log on a given day.

All right, gents (@Smokin'Sims @CigSid), we are three days away. Y'all still in? I wish we were already counting miles, as I've been hitting my daily requirements for this thing. Reminds me of Zero Week in Basic Training -- we arrived on a Wednesday and spent the next few days inprocessing and stuff before BMT actually "started" on the following Monday. All that yelling and pain didn't even count for anything...

I'm still in for it. Although I'm like going to start by resting. The month of April is killing me in the SwissAlps run. Letting myself heal a week before starting the GVRAT is a good idea.

I did the math, I would need to walk from my desk to my couch or mailbox 1056 times per day.

my kid asking me to get her something from the kitchen the very second I sit down would
Subtract about 200 trips from that.

Will be watching you guys from the sidelines!! Get some!!

I'll say member Kann is still kicking my ass. I was lazy in May, but am waking the running beast now. Hope I catch him by the end of August..

Ha! Just saw this. I'm sure you'll have no problem leaving member Kann's member in the dust (if you haven't already by the time I'm writing this). I haven't checked on you in a minute -- where are you at right now? I'm hoping to break 250 miles tomorrow, but we'll see.

Quite far behind, but the current goal is 50 miles a week. I would really like to be done by mid August. Specifically incase I break myself on the SwissAlps 50km race. I will push to the breaking point to finish that SOB, so there is a real chance I won't finish this one this year.

He is kicking mine as well... I forgot to post about 25 miles, then work took over and boom... no more time 😞

Go get him James!
