You may have noticed a mileage counter on the right side of the blog. This counts miles walked in our families current fitness challenge. The new challenge has just started, unfortunately the treadmill has just stopped. The machine is too large to move out of the house assembled and is pretty heavy too. I doubt we can get it serviced for a price that won't make me wince with pain. What we need are some other ways to work towards the goal.
Today we walked at a shopping mall. One nice thing about this is we can all do it simultaneously. A drawback is that it takes a lot of trips around the mall to make a mile. The mall also 20 miles away.
Tomorrow we we will try using the Wii Fit and a pedometer to get some distance in. Unfortunately, it won't be nice enough to walk or bike outside for at least two months. Wish us luck.
