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

It's another week, another opportunity to share your progress walking through Middle Earth by exercising on Earth! So, how go your journeys?

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 10
Cumulative miles: 822
Goal: There and Back Again!

I'm getting there, not making lots of progress but not slipping back too much on my mileage, so at least I can build on it. I'm sure getting tired of ooky trees and weird squirrels, though. Mirkwood bad!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 6
Cumulative miles: 831
Goal: Group Challenge

The Scoop on the Walk
The TORn Walk to Rivendell thread meets right here on Main, on Thursdays.
Learn about TORn's There and Back Again Challenge

The Eowyn Challenge/Walk to Rivendell (and beyond) is a Middle-Earth-related fitness group that began in March 2003, and has been going on with walkers around the world ever since. TORn's Walk is open to all people and healthy types of activity. Please visit the Eowyn Challenge site, especially the main page and the Walk page, for more information. Useful links, including mileage charts compiled by the late Karen Wynn Fonstad, are on the Tools page.

Eowyn Challenge Login Page to register miles

If you use the Eowyn Challenge site to track your progress, please update your mileage via the login page, and be sure to keep a backup record, in case Warg attack, Wizard-induced blizzard, or other fell calamity causes the Shields page to crash.

Creeping forward... [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, I was sick for a good part of the week, and it was raining almost every day, so I could not go outside much and get even less exercise. Hopefully, next week is going to be better. That stupid infection I got is on the way out, at least. I can't do anything about the weather, unfortunately.

Miles this week: 23
Cumulative miles: 1461
Challenge: There and Back Again!

Does that mean I've made it to Beorn's at last?

Howdy Fellow Walkers :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Now that the garage roof is done for the winter, I've spent less time crawling up and down the ladder and all over the roof...so I kinda took it a little easy this week. BUT I have all that outdoor winterizing to do yet, so it's back outside this weekend.

Thanks so much for keeping us on the Road, Arandiel! Have a great week everyone!

Miles covered: 18 miles
Cumulated miles: 2754
Goal: #2 Unexpected Journey Individual Challenge and contributing to the Group :)

I'm glad you're feeling better :) [In reply to] Can't Post

That bug is making its way around where I work, too. It's not fun!

You're absolutely right! Gandalf, Bilbo and you have left Beorn's and are on your way to the Forest Road heading for Rivendell via the Misty Mountains. Nice not to be chased for a change, eh? ;)

Have a great week, Angharad73!!
