Updated Clock...Soccer...Walking

Thanks to Camera Obscura for the "shout-out" on her blog about the clock that I use here! This is my SIL and I look forward to reading her blog every day. If you haven't noticed I updated my clock on here since Sam has started his spring soccer season. Using the soccer ball clock now in honor of that.

Sam has already had his first practice and will continue to have 3 practices a week! He is used to only having 1 practice a week so this will be a big change for him. His first game will be on April 14. I will know more particulars after this Tuesday's practice. So far we really like his coach. We didn't know what we were going to get in a coach since we just moved here and have only had experience with the coaches in Springfield, MO. Sam will actually get to learn A LOT of skills this year and for that I am happy.

Well as of this morning I only have 15 1/2 miles to go toward the 100 miles before April 1st! I will actually finish above 100 miles! I am currently walking 3 1/2 miles in a little less than an hour. I would love to walk at least 4 miles in that amount of time before April 1st but we'll just have to see about that. I never thought I would be able to get this far with it but now I know that I will. Now to figure out what my next goal will be. Any suggestions???

I hope the new coach is wonderful, although it will be hard to compete with what we have to offer here in the Ozarks :)

I think a fun goal for any kind of distance based exercise is to track accumulated miles and set goals for where you want to walk to. So, if I walked from my house to downtown Minneapolis, it would be 8 miles, but if I walked to Chicago, it would be 414 miles. Somewhere in between might be Madison, WI at 275 miles. So if I had already walked 100 miles, 175 miles more (if I had walked them all in a row) would put me in Madison. You could track it on a road atlas with a highlighter.
