We made it to Rivendell!  ~streamers and balloons~

I guess I'll continue on to Lothlorien, next, with the modest goal of getting there by the end of the year.  It's roughly the same distance from Rivendell to Lothlorien as it is from Hobbiton to Rivendell.
So... Let's start the counter over again!  I'll take my "leftover" miles (surplus above 458) and apply them to the new journey.

From Rivendell to Lothlorien:

TOTAL= 6.8 / 462 miles

We've climbed out of the valley onto the moors.  Now that we're the Fellowship of the Ring, there are new people to talk to and new stories to swap.  ;o)

June 15th to 20th

I've been putting most of my "daily exertion" focus on gardening, again, and haven't used the stationary bike to make up some easy miles, but since my goal was reaching Rivendell by July 1st, and there's no way that isn't happening, now (unless I lose the ability to walk altogether), I've just been coasting... I still haven't decided what the next goal will be.

We are in the very midst of our dramatic arrival at the environs of Rivendell!  Less than five miles to go!

Marched all night and camped next to the road at dawn.

Just over 35 miles left to walk (and/or bike).  Unless something totally unforeseen happens to throw me off my pace, I should make it to Rivendell well before the end of the month.  Time to start thinking about what the next goal will be...

Setting myself a specific monthly goal has really helped focus me on at least sitting on the bike for 2 miles a day.  Biking two miles (indoors) isn't much, but it's still more than I had been doing, since gardening chores started taking more time and energy.  Maybe monthly goals is the way to go-- or a bigger goal broken into monthly "mini-goals".

While looking for a place to camp, we heard a horse; it turned out to be Glorfindel.  (I had no idea who Glorfindel was, so it was kind of awkward...  Apparently he's an elf.  Yes, it has been many years since I read the books.)

May 25th to 31st

Whoa, my numbers really plummeted this week!  There's also a lot to do outside, so I may not get on the treadmill as often as I should for a while to come... At least yardwork is its own form of exercise.

We had an encounter with some Stone Trolls, but are now happily back on the road again.

Well, even with my abysmal numbers, there's another milestone reached-- over four hundred miles since I started tracking my steps with the pedometer.

I've already started thinking about what I want to do when I finally arrive in Rivendell.  What should my next goal be?  Maybe more of a time-oriented goal... Something to get me walking more each week than I have, the first half of the year.

July 1st is the halfway point of the year (if I'm not mistaken).  I could make it my goal to reach Rivendell by that date.  It should be do-able, if I make a point of walking (and/or cycling) on a more frequent basis.  Just about two miles a day, on average.  I can do that, surely!  I'll at least give it a try.
