    Commute walking - 6.62
    Recreational walking - 17.41 miles

    Another week with decent mileage.
    Ran to or from work every day - although Thursday was part of the route home from the Physio appt I had after work.
    And I actually finished work in time to walk to the Physio rather than catch a bus, which meant I added on some unexpected miles.
    My fella wanted something from a store a few miles from mine today, so we walked there and back instead of taking the car (added on over 7 miles)

    Commute walking - 12.63
    Recreational walking - 7.09 miles

    Clocked some decent mileage this week.
    I've done a run every day - either to or from work on 6 days (4 of under 2 miles, 2 of 5k), plus a 10k event today
    Had a physio appt 6 miles from home before work on Thursday. No car to get there, so looked at public transport. Would have to leave house at 6:36am. To walk? By 6:30am. No competition then. So I'd clocked up just over 7 miles before work (the walk there, plus a mile back to the bus route to get to work)

    Week off work. Monday was manic with dental appointment (which I walked out on due to dentist being caught in traffic), eye check, contact lens check and hearing test - plus packing to go away that evening - which meant no mileage clocked up for the challenge.

    The rest of the week (up until a few hours ago) was spent in the Lake District. My son was with me the first two nights, then he came home and my fella joined me. The next day my Mother joined us for two nights. Lots of odd jobs done on and around the property (we help to look after it in return for minimal cost breaks away from home), but I managed to fit a short run in every morning - and my fella and I went for a walk (to get the all important supply of Grasmere Gingerbread) yesterday.

    Bad week for mileage, due to a flare up of my sciatica. Wasn't great Monday or Tuesday, and ended up taking Wednesday & Thursday off work. Due to having to take car to garage (near work) on Tuesday, that means I lost 3 days of commute mileage

    I restarted C25K this week. Seems crazy when I'm doing 10k events, but I lost the ability to run more than a couple of km without walk breaks when I had some medical issues and took a break from running for almost a year, and I've not managed to improve on it. I'm hoping that this will be the kickstart I need. So I ran to work on Tuesday and Friday, and home from work on Wednesday. That's week 1 officially complete, but I plan to stick to week 1 this week as I donated blood on Saturday afternoon and that always knocks me for a while.

    Absolutley manic work at week - our office has 25 staff, and at this time of year we can have up to 7 off (4 on rest weeks, 3 on leave) - but this week we also had 2 on special leave and 2 off sick..... and then a third went off sick on Fri & Sat! Made for some looooong days I cycled to work on Monday, but left the bike there as I didn't have my lights and it was starting to turn to dusk by the time I left. So I walked home Monday, into work Tuesday, and cycled home Tuesday. I then walked the commute the other 4 days, and today I ran a 10k race I entered at the start of the year, and earned myself this medal

    I've been in the Lake District this week, but the weather hasn't been great We set out to attempt the Fairfield Horseshoe on Tuesday, but got driven back by rain and (mostly) wind before we reached the half-way point. Other than that we just did our regular 'nip over to Grasmere' to get some Gingerbread yesterday, when the weather had fortunately perked up a bit.

    The next 3 weeks are working weeks (and I have a 10k run booked in for next Sunday), so hopefully I can add some commute and running mileage to my totals - although it's looking like I'm cycling to work tomorrow so I can go shopping at a 'not so local' store straight from work, so that won't count!

    Picture of the medal I earned Wednesday of last week added, now I'm back home and have it to hand......

    Ooops! Whilst out on a walk this afternoon I suddenly remembered I hadn't posted my weekly update on here last night. I blame on it the fact that Saturday was my last working day of my 5th 6 day week (I'm now off this week as my 'rest week'), and I also did a late night run that day (had to travel from Manchester to Blackpool for a 9pm start, and didn't get home until close to midnight) so my body clock is all over the place and my brain was fairly addled yesterday

    So.......

    Absolutely no mileage to add to my challenge total this week, though I did swim 1.09 miles and cycle another 10.36 miles.

    All change tomorrow, as my office transfer has happened rather faster than I expected. 9 days ago I was told it would be "at some point in the next 28 days", and on Wednesday (just 5 days later) I was told "you're moving on Monday"!

    I'm going to have to take the car in on Tuesday, as someone's dropping off three crisp boxes full of DVDs for me (and I can't carry those home on foot), but I don't plan to use the car as a regular transport method for commuting from here on in.
