I've reached the eastern edge of the Marshes and can see Weather Hills ahead. The land is rising and is getting drier, but very barren.

February 23rd

Treadmill, fetching the mail, putting away loose things in the yard (plastic chairs, etc.), and clearing a spot in the garage for the car.  (We were under a fairly high risk of tornadoes and other dangerous weather for the evening, so I wanted to prepare as much as possible.  We were lucky, though, and didn't have any really bad weather here.  There was a tornado in Pensacola, however!)

I'm camping in the western part of the marsh.  (Doesn't sound like a very pleasant spot to camp...)

February 17th

Oops, I forgot to wear/carry the pedometer for part of the day.  Fortunately, I wasn't doing much walking during that period, and I did have it when I was on the treadmill, so it shouldn't have made much difference.

February 17th:
9673 steps

TOTAL= 164.7 / 458 miles

I am thisclose to getting the heck out of Chetwood!! ;o)

February 12th

Didn't feel like walking on the treadmill, so I took a day off from it.  We had a walk around the pond, but otherwise it was just incidental, going-about-my-day walking.

February 12th:
4665 steps
1.8 miles

TOTAL= 147.3

Still in Chetwood.  Quiet and peaceful, with the ground dropping slightly.

February 10th

Treadmill, but fell short of doing enough later in the day to reach 10,000 steps.  Still need work to consistently reach that goal-- but life sometimes gets in the way.  If it were properly prioritized, it would be possible, most days.

February 10th:
8882 steps
3.5 miles

TOTAL= 141.2 / 458 miles

We've left the road and headed north into Chetwood, where we see no living things.  (I guess they mean no animals.  Otherwise, it must be a strange forest without living trees or other plants.)

A busy day.  ;o)
We've reached Bree, checked into The Prancing Pony, met Strider, had our ponies stolen, and left Bree by the East Road.

I'm so close to Bree I can probably smell it!  Meanwhile, Tom has left us, and Strider has glimpsed us-- but then rather sneakily hid from us.  (In which case, it's a little bit odd that I'm telling you this, now.  Maybe my imaginary LoTR character/persona has some type of clairvoyance. (g))

Treadmill + some laps in the yard.

February 6th

Today there was a walk around the pond, then lots of laps in the house.

(Our home's layout is such that it's possible to walk a decent-sized oval in the main/public parts of the house.  Each lap is approximately 40-50 steps for me, so it takes a number of laps to add up to anything substantial, but I guess it's a viable alternative to the treadmill and the outdoors.)

February 6th:
8114 steps
3.2 miles

TOTAL= 125 / 458 miles

I've reached the former boundary of Cardolan, part of the North Kingdom of Arnor.

February 5th

No time on the treadmill means a pathetic step-count for the day.  I wasn't completely still all day, though.  I did paint part of the foyer and see to the burning of two separate piles of "garden refuse" (fallen limbs, small trees, weeds, large trimmings, etc.)-- but neither of those activities added up to much walking, unfortunately.

February 5th:
3628 steps
1.4 miles

TOTAL= 121.8

February 4th

Extra-long walk on the treadmill, today!  (Plus a walk around the pond with Donald and play-time with the dogs.)

February 4th:
13876 steps
5.5 miles

TOTAL= 120.4 / 458 miles

Tom Bombadil has rescued us from the dreaded Wights, and we're heading north (on ponies).

February 3rd

I didn't walk on the treadmill this morning, because I didn't have time, but I got some steps in while grocery shopping (which never seem to add up as much as I think they will!).  I tried to make up some of the lost steps by walking laps around our fenced yard in the late afternoon/twilight.

That lap seems like a longer distance than I would've expected.  It's a real possibility for walking at times when the trail seems less appealing (weather, trail conditions, snakes, etc.).  It's a change from the treadmill, and I can definitely see myself listening to music or an audiobook while walking laps.

February 3rd:
9107 steps
3.6 miles

TOTAL= 114.9 / 458 miles

I'm about to be captured by Wights!!  (...What are Wights?  I don't remember them at all.)  But not to fear, for Tom Bombadil is here!

February 2nd

I'm always especially pleased to get over 10,000 steps in a day.  I should probably try to reach that milestone a certain number of days every week, but I'm not sure I can be bothered to actually track it that carefully.

February 2nd:
10838 steps
4.3 miles

TOTAL= 111.3 / 458 miles

I can't believe how long it's taking to get to Bree!  In the movie, this part of the journey always seems very quick (probably because they left most of this part of the book out, when they adapted it for the screen).

February 1st

I didn't even notice that I'd reached 100 miles, last entry!  Yeah!  That's just over 100 miles in one month-- mostly walked, with just a little stationary biking.  It sounds like a pretty good number for a month-- especially if you don't go dividing it by the number of days.  (g)
