October Resolution Recap

Since we're down to two months left to complete our goal of 1100 miles for the year, it seemed like a good time to do a little recap of how the year's gone so far and what we still have to accomplish in November and December.

            January: 72.96 miles
            February: 39.06 miles
            March: 100.35 miles
            April: 123.6 miles
            May: 125.74 miles
            June: 108.39 miles
            July: 112.42 miles
            August: 117.51 miles
            September: 103.02 miles

October has been pretty consistent with the mileage we were getting in September and with two days left to walk, we've got 92.73 miles. We've slowed down quite a bit since the summer months, but we're still hitting at least our 3-mile goal each day, so we can't complain too much.

We've also gotten in a lot of really beautiful walks this month. We're taking advantage of as many strolls through the foliage as we possibly can--and if that means we walk a little more slowly to enjoy the scenery and can't squeeze as many miles into our limited hours of daylight after work, that's ok.

At this point in the year, we've walked a total of 995.77 miles, which is 90% of our goal for the year.

That means we have 104.23 miles left and 62 days to get them, or in other words, we have to walk a total of 1.68 miles every day for the rest of the year to meet our goal. Our goal is seeming more attainable every day! Happy FitDog Friday everyone!


  1. The great thing is that the goal keeps you motivated and on track. We would never even try to track out miles with all the variations we have around here, but we aren't motivated by our mileage, so it would bog us down. It is awesome the system works so well with you and we know you will exceed your goal this year!

  2. Wow! That is an impressive goal! I think I'm going to do the same thing starting in January! Thanks for the idea!

  3. I think you are easily going to meet your goal - Congratulations! That means next year you go for 1,200!

  4. I love how Barley always looks so happy! Congrats on your mileage! It's so beautiful there! I don't blame you for slowing down and enjoying it!

  5. Definitely looks attainable. Good job guys!

  6. You're going to do it! Heck, less than 2 miles per day is a breeze for you and Barley. :) Great job. I'm glad you've also slowed down and just enjoyed the beautiful fall weather and foliage too though.

  7. Woohoo, sounds like you'll not only be meeting your goal, but exceeding it! Chapeau!! Daily exercise is sooo important.

  8. That is so awesome! How cool to be able to say you walked 1000 miles with your dog.

  9. Oh wow! That's fantastic! We need to set a goal next year. Our summer months are so stinking hot - we don't get any walking done.
