I am a 68 year year old with severe arthritis. I try to do 5000 steps a day but week ends are my downfall. My challenge would be to maintain 5000 minimum Mon- Fri and 3000 at the weekend. I also would like to lose around 1 lb per week. I am really enjoying the challenges and since I got my fitbit am able to do Marathons around the world. Virtual ones of course.

    Happy 3rd Birthday. I took advantage and signed up for 2 more marathons. What a great way to be motivated. This week has been relentless rain and so basically housebound. I have not yet developed the still of walking stick, umbrella and shopping bag. Parts of my area are underwater so I could try swimming challenges.

    Really enjoyed my older peoples keep fit class yesterday. 1960's and 70's music is so much better than the thumping of today. Bonus that we can sing along too. Thankfully I am on track for my challenge and losing weight slowly and steadily. OK only 0.5 kg a week but its a loss. Really struggling to get out and about today, the rain which started late afternoon yesterday has just not stopped. Some areas of the country will be underwater by the end of the week. Just hope nobody gets hurt as a result. Be safe out there everyone.

    So its now June. Nearly halfway through the year. Still here and still going. When I was younger they never had marathons. Who knows if I might have done one. At least with this, my dream of not one, not even 2 but 3 in one month. Very impressive even if I say so myself. Its not just the challenge people enjoy but your tangible achievement when completed. Just really one thing really wished to do. A MUD RUN.

    Bank Holiday weekend means a change in the weather. Kids off school so it should rain. Time to be checking flight prices for my next holiday. Figure if its October I need to sign up for the Scream challenge with the T shirt. Walking. has returned to my normal 6000- 7000 a day. Legs just about recovered from the overuse suffered in Orlando. Just need to remind myself of my age before any long walks are contemplated. Plenty in the garden to keep me busy next week.

    Hard to believe we are halfway through May already. Where has the time gone. Back on track now with doing my 5000 during weekdays and aiming for 3500 at the weekends. Learning to listen to my body at its current age and not the body I think its at. Managed to raise £53 for Stroke Care. I am pleased with that, the first time I have used walking to fund raise. I might do more to raise more money. Just need to think of something worthwhile. Keep going everyone, we are almost half way through the year now. Good luck to all.

    Still struggling from this overuse thing with my legs. Impossible to rest and be lazy, just not me. Happy that 4 marathons have been completed( ok virtual ones) and my annual 5k for Dawn. Just added another 5 k for the Stroke Foundation. A certain sense of satisfaction is a great feeling. Where next will my adventures take me?

    Well thats a new one " overuse" is a real medical problem. Another word for " hit the wall" apparently. It will take my knees and legs from 2 - 6 weeks to recover. I was reminded of my age again and the fact I am no longer a 16 year old. Back to 6000 steps a day and 4000 - 6000 at the weekend. Having done 115.3 miles on my 26 day holiday when my " normal" is 53. 4 in 30 days is nuts. Just rubbing more muscle rub on my legs.

    Now back from Orlando so I can re adjust my steps down. Just need my legs and knees to recover. Never again will that level of activity be repeated, too old and obviously my knees are too far gone now. Glad my holiday is over really from the point of view of walking so much.

    My legs hurt now I have realised 12,000 steps a day is too much. 45 miles in a week compared with 50 a month. I guess my body is telling me to slow down. I can finally take it easy from now. At least I know and can make adjustments to.my life.

    Finally sorted out MY mistake. I can continue to step forward and work towards my steps for the Stroke Association. I have people guessing how many miles I will do during given dates. £2 each. 50% then gets returned to the winner of the closest guess and the rest to my chosen charity. Great way to raise money and makes it fun for those who guess. .

    Hi It looks like I might have been sending in my weekly updates to the wrong place and really feel my age. Good job someone else posted that she had also not gotten any feedback. Happy I am not the only one doing it wrong.
