Gahhhhhhhh! I am not going to bore you with personal details. I will just say that I have been REALLY busy with some very important stuff that had to take priority.
We haven’t gotten as far as I had hoped by this time – the halfway point of the Idita-Walk challenge. We’ve barely made it a quarter of the way.
In MY defense, I have done a lot more walking than us as a team. When I signed up for the Idita-Walk, I put my name down as “captain” of our wiener team. However, the rule is I can’t log any miles I walk unless at least one of Chester or Gretel are with me. On my own, I have been walking other Doxies (traitor, I know, but it’s my job) and I went running a couple of times without them.
There have definitely been some positives with this challenge over the 30/30 Challenge last month. That was a good exercise to try but it really hit home that it is just impossible for me to get out and walk every single day. This challenge is great because we can walk when the mood strikes, and the stars align, for as little or as long as we want and count it toward the final goal.
Boy, do we have some cramming to do though. Not to put any pressure on ourselves but we will have to walk about 30 minutes a day this month to reach 1049 minutes….so we are kind of back where we were last month anyway. I am planning for us to go on few long hikes to make up a big chunk of the time. We have been needing a few of those anyway! Now that spring is coming to the Northwest, the weather is pretty pleasant too.
Anyway, all team Dogventurers are called to write their own review post (if they haven’t already because I am late with mine) and link up to the blog hop below. This hop will be open until Monday night PST.
For the rest of you, it is not too late to join our team. Heck, we are practically doing the whole thing in a month so you could too 🙂 Check out the Team Dogventurers post for the details and instructions for making yourself a cool progress ticker like this:
