My plans have been thwarted.


Right now, walking from the sofa to the kitchen is an ordeal and getting upstairs requires a rest stop and a cough halfway up.

I'm not sure if anyone else is getting it but I feel the vibe that maybe Mel isn't very happy  :D :D :D

My sympathies Mel
Despite a complicated house move in August which got in the way of a lot of walking for 3 months and a knee injury in September it hasnít been a bad year. Exactly 100 walks logged this year. Mrs N has managed 603 miles which is a personal best and I have done 713.
Hopefully, we will walk more next year; 10 days walking in Austria already booked for starters and, having given Exmoor and the SWCP a good seeing to since September, Dartmoor and Cornish SWCP is in the sights for 2018.

With just one day to go I've completed the ViewRanger 400 km challenge (it sounds better than 250 miles, don't you think?) :) .  It's pretty pathetic really as I reached 350 km back in September but so many things got in the way of walking. I had been trying only to log new walks but the holiday has made it difficult to get away (too much eating and drinking and not enough public transport) so I had to repeat a local Thames and parks walk to reach my target today, just in time. ???   
Must try harder in 2018....

Bri, you noticed  :o   ... and there was me thinking I was being discrete  ;D

It's kakkapants isn't it Jac [/size] >:(   I think coughs should be on the Banned List.  I've not heard of feeling "viddy" before?  Autocorrect gone wrong? Or is it a local word?[/size]


Ninthace, your idea of "not a lot of walking" sounds like my idea of "a heck of a lot of walking"  :D   Well done for Mrs N on beating her PB  O0


Well done John Walker  O0   If I only logged my "proper walks" I'd be nowhere near 250 miles by now.  I logged everything ... and I mean EVERYTHING so I can't even quietly sit and think "oh, if I'd logged all my walks I'd have done it"  :(


I notice the VR Walking Challenges are back again for 2018 so I'm gonna give the 250 miles challenge another go, along with my own personal 365 challenge again.


In the meantime, here's something for the stat geeks amongst you to have a laugh at:


I did 338.97 miles in 182 walks. 83 of those were a mile long or less and were "functional" walks, eg. to/from the shops or job number 2 (see John Walker, they do add up so it's worth counting them!).
The majority of my walks were "out of the door" plods (hence, why people might only be able to see "private track" on the VR site).
My longest walk was 11.42 miles on a lovely sunny day in the Yorkshire Dales.
My total height climbed was 24,081ft.  The biggest height gain in one walk was 2,500ft on the "not quite Moel Eilio" forum meet back in March.
I spent a total of roughly 7.5 days walking.
My average speed was 1.84mph which, to be honest, is faster than I thought it would be.


So there you have it folks and folkesses.  That's me signing out of the VR 2017 Walking Challenge.  Thank you all for your support each time I resurrected this topic, it has been very much appreciated  :)

Well, as the year comes to an end, I've just found this forum and looked up my ViewRanger Stats to find I've done 1,526.62 miles without noticing. 
Yep, retirement helps.

All sympathies Mel, I've been coughing and spluttering since boxing day and feeling very sorry for myself, but you sound in a much worse state.
Lets hope we are all back to fighting fit in the new year, once we've recovered from tomorrow's hangover.

Hope you feel better soon Islandplodder.  This cough/cold seems to have been doing the rounds for a couple of months. 


Worcester John 1.5k in a year, aye, that's pretty good going.  I don't think I drive that far, never mind walk  ;D

'Viddy' is possibly just a Devon word (I've been down here 40 yrs so have picked up a bit of the local lingo!) meaning healthy/well/fit.
