500 miles for the year.

Last night I went for a 2.5 mile walk which puts me over the 500 mile total for running,walking and bicycling as follows:

Running 280
Walking 121
Bicycle 101

The above totals are a little light, I am finding out, since I got my Garmin Forerunner 305 last week. Some of the trails I run/walk/bike I estimated on the low side.

I am the caretaker for my elderly mother. Last night I had to admit her to the hospital and did not get home until late and almost missed my planned walk. However JoAnne said she would go for a walk with me and saved the day! When I woke up today I had a little pain in my back which may have been from trying to pick up my mom last night. I did my Tai Chi, including the warm up and afterwards I did a quick Yoga for runner's routine; back feel fine! Although Tai Chi took me 7 months of 2 to 3 sessions a week at class it was worth it. As a fellow Tai Chi practitioner once told me "it is a good thing to own, once you learn it you have a valuable skill for life"!

  1. 500 is awesome, you're ahead of me for sure. I think you'll enjoy the G305, all kinds of fun tings you can do with it. Great data too.
