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

Greetings and welcome to the Walk to Rivendell! I'd invite you to come in and have a seat, but this thread is all about getting up and moving! So, how's it going this week?

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 11
Cumulative miles: 800
Goal: There and Back Again!

I'm ootching my mileage back up, slowly. The good news is, my foot is behaving itself. Bad news, I'm still in Mirkwood. The kids are home from school yesterday and today, and our internet was down yesterday morning, hence the delay this week. But I'm moving more!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 8
Cumulative miles: 815
Goal: There and Back Again

Dance and PE for Beamer this past week. She got a pleasant surprise at dance class last night, when her teacher challenged the class to go further with their stretching: Beamer discovered she's more flexible than she realized!

Another two weeks... [In reply to] Can't Post

I wasn't around much last week, so I've got two weeks' worth of mileage to report. We've had a spell of good weather, but I don't think it will last long. Anyway, the autumn colours are still lovely, and there are more and more leaves on the ground to jump through Smile

Miles covered the last two weeks: 79
Cumulative miles: 1406
Challenge: There and Back Again!

So, I'm still on my way to Beorn's.

Gumby Beamer! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Good for her! This dance has been so great for her :D

I'm so glad your foot is getting better, Arandiel. It's nasty how long injuries like that take to "heel" up :)

I've gotten as far as I can shingling the other side (of top two sides) of my garage roof. I blew through 10 bundles of shingles (26 to a 70 lb bundle) in a day and a half. I'll do the final 3-5 bottom rows properly after I replace the rotted wood and fascia next Spring. But it's winterized and won't have anymore moisture from snow and rain get in there... so I'm happy. That means I'll try to finish up my illustrated side of the roof this weekend. It's going to be about 40 degrees F and windy, so we'll see how much I can get done.

I also had to do a BUNCH of walking to auto repair and help my daughter get her stranded car (walked to it)... so a bunch of my mileage was actual walking (above my regular routine)

I hope everyone has a wonderful week AND weekend! Get ready for Halloween :D *geeky hand-clapping*

Thanks for keeping us on the road Arandiel. I'm glad your internet is cooperating now ;)

Miles covered: 47 miles
Cumulated miles: 2712
Goal: #2 Unexpected Journey Individual Challenge and contributing to the Group :)

Radio silent [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm going radio silent until I see DOS. I've already read too many spoilers on the site accidentally to risk more.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL UNTIL THEN!!!

I've added 18.67 miles this week.
Sorry, but I can't find my notebook to get my full results right now.

Until December,
Joe

'For that woe is past,' said Galadriel; 'and I would take what joy is here left, untroubled by memory. And maybe there is woe enough yet to come, thought still hope may seem bright.'

Check! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's hard, isn't it!? I've been trying real hard to avoid spoilers, too. We've only got 2 more of these "first time" movie treasures to look forward to, and I'm going to experience each one as pristine as possible.

*high five*

I love kicking through piles of leaves [In reply to] Can't Post

when I'm walking. It's not the mileage, it's the journey. And this time of year is awesome! Have a great time!
