Fitness Friday

Since I've signed up for the 100-mile Challenge for the next 3 months, I thought I should bring back Fitness Friday.

For the first week of the challenge (thru yesterday), I logged 6 miles.  I was off today and racked up quite a few more miles between walking this morning and exercising this afternoon.  Tomorrow we're doing a race (2 mile walk for me and 5 mile run for hubby).  I was going to do the 5 mile one but it's only for runners, so hubby suggested I do the 2 mile walk and work on going faster instead of doing the 5 miles and coming in essentially last.

I'm still keeping track of my "virtual walk" too.  Here is my progress:

~ Miles Walked in 2011: 124.19 miles
~ Miles Left to My "Virtual" Destination: 158.55 miles

The Loopy Ewe, an online yarn shop, is doing a virtual summer camp and the first month's camp project was a two-colored shawl or scarf.  My camp project was Sothia and I chose a light turquoise and grey for my stripes and a dark turquoise for the ruffle.  I bound off today and just need to weave in the ends and block it.  By the end I had almost 800 stitches on the needles!!!  It was an easy, mindless knit, but I sure was glad to be done with all those stitches.

Here is the pre-blocked photo:

Way to go on your mileage so far! I need to get back to the elliptical and get my legs used to going before I can commit to a challenge like that. lol

And woo hoo for finishing the shawl!! Very pretty!!!
