My Activity Tracking
Day 29Our day started with an alarm at 5am. We have set forward on an adventure starting at Echuca and left our cars at home.
Day 27 and 28Despite lots of exercise: zumba, gardening, using a hand mower and packing, I only added 0.5 kms to my marathon count.
Day 25 & 26On Wednesdays, we walk and meet our grandkids after school and walk home together via 2 supervised school crossings. Whilst some families need to drive from work or other places, it is always great to see that many children are getting regular exercise and healthy habits by walking to school.
Day 22, 23 & 24You often hear about walking groups which meet at shopping centres before the shops open. I always thought it sounded dull but when the rain bucketed down on Sunday, we decided to detour through the shopping centre to get some shelter on our way home from Tai chi.
Day 20 & 21Plenty of cardio exercise at Friday's Zumba class but had to wait till Saturday's walk in my neighbourhood to cross the marathon finish line.
Day 18A beautiful sunny day for Leon and I to meet cousin John & Jane (from NSW) at McClelland gallery and sculpture park. We started on our Belcher Family Lake Walk then a coffee before walking right around all the sculptures with a stop for lunch and a bit more walking. There was a lot of catching up since Dad's 90th birthday, almost 4 years ago.
Day 15 & 16On Sunday, I walked to the library for a well attended Seniors Festival session. It was conducted by David from Dragon Tai Chi in the library forecourt. I was lucky to enjoy it rain-free.
Day 14There was rain early and big threatening clouds but our team met in the café at The Nest on Waterways. We were lucky to complete the 4km walk around the outer waterway without rain and a great opportunity for team members to become acquainted. We missed Chris and Lyn, doing ParkRuns in Brisbane and Melbourne at the time and Zak, our youngest member.
Day 13Zumba was fun again this morning. But it doesn't score any km's for our challenge, so Leon & I donned raincoats and walked to Oliver's corner near the Frankston pier where we indulged in pots of hot, spicy chai.
Days 10, 11 & 12
Day 8 & 9
Day 6 &7
Day 5It's Seniors Week and one of my two walks today is a guided walk in the Sweetwater Creek Reserve. Amongst the group were some MM supporters and friends from my neighbourhood afternoon walking group. It's not exactly a good cardio walk as we stopped frequently to observe plants, wildlife and the creek environs.
DAY 2, 3 & 4On Monday 2nd, I walked with Peta (from our team) and some of our Heart Foundation Walking group in the beautiful George Pentland Botanical gardens in Frankston.
HOW IS MY WALKING GOING?
Support my challenge for Australian hearts
This October, I’ll be doing my personal best to walk regularly and raise funds to support The Heart Foundation.
I’m going to conquer 42 km to raise funds for heart disease research that will help save lives.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Australia, and I want to do something to support the thousands of Aussies whose lives are impacted by this disease every single day.
Join me and help save Aussie hearts by making a donation to my page.
Together, we can win the race against heart disease.
