A milestone day of sorts for me.... today is day 1313 in terms of my exercise routine.  I have walked roughly 5 miles each day for the last 1313 days.  As a record of this milestone for me, I have to state that walking is the minimum standard for me these days and on other days when I feel up to snuff, I often do other things as well, including:

1.  Averaging 4.5 trips to the U Gym each week during the last four months to strength train (primairly  my upper body to look more tone and "beef-cake" (sarcastic tone here required for proper inflection) like. 

2.  Jogging (albeit slow) the walking route probably on average twice a week.

3.  Getting my family to walk with me beyond my normal daily activity about twice a week (plans are to go hiking in the woods often on these excursions especially starting in the next week or two).

It feels very good, all this activity.  I am so glad I started the consistency of doing it 1313 days ago!

The first time I went through Texas and discovered farm to market roads I took right to the idea.

You know, you need a bike.

I have five large dogs and live on a farm. With inspiration from you I have been walking them three miles a day through the fields. In the winter I snowshoed with them. I feel great!!

I remember when you began.
Day 1313 is STUPENDOUS.
