Walk to Rivendell and Beyond: There and Back Again Challenge! Can't Post

Greetings again, fellow TORn Walkers! Here we are in the middle of winter/summer, when the weather is so cold/hot, exercising outdoors can be a challenge. Or not, for some of us live in places where the summers/winters are lovely and mild. Whatever the weather, we're sharing the Road with other TORnFolk as we exercise our way through Middle Earth. How are your journeys going this week?

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles covered last week: 86.91
Cumulative miles: 10394.73
Miles along the journey: 692.98
Miles out of Rivendell: 295.98

We're almost 18 miles into Mirkwood Forest, one-tenth of the way through (according to the Eowyn Challege site, it's 180 miles from the western end of the trail to the place where the Dwarves are captured by Thranduil's Elves). According to my edition of The Hobbit, we'll be on page 141 for a while. So to liven the journey a bit over the next few weeks, feel free to mention your favorite action scenes in the books or the movies. They go by so quickly on the Road!

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 6
Cumulative miles: 450
Goal: There and Back Again!

It was a somewhat better week for me, mostly because of contextual exercise. I had a little bit of snow shoveling (finally - I hate droughts) and I've been schlepping cases of Girl Scout cookies; it's good to be the Troop Cookie Manager. Maybe, if I tell myself that often enough, I'll believe it... Crazy

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 9
Cumulative miles: 447
Goal: Group Challenge

It was PE, dance, and door-to-door Girl Scout cookie sales for Beamer this week, so she's getting some weight-bearing exercise - woohoo!
