In May, we upped our mileage a bit and got in 109.65 miles--we missed two days of walking while I was on vacation. We both walked separately those days, but only miles we do together count.
In June, we walked every day--twice on most days--and logged 118.14 miles.
Most of the walks in both months were in our neighborhood or my parents' neighborhood, but we got in a few walks at the state park, a few visits to our deer friends after agility class, and a couple visits to the arboretum. Despite the fact that we were in our neighborhood for most of the walks, neither of us are getting bored. We're feeling really lucky that we can easily get 3 miles in our neighborhood without repeating any streets and there are two very different halves to our neighborhood that make it easy to take different walks in the morning and the evening.
We reached the halfway point of the year with 568.66 miles so far, which is 51.7% of our goal--that means we're a little ahead of schedule! Technically, with the mileage we've already earned in July, we only need 2.88 miles/day to reach our 1,100-mile goal for the year. We'll still be striving for at least 3 miles a day, especially since we have a couple travel days together and I'm taking a long weekend to go to my cousin's wedding--and it never hurts to get ahead so that when winter arrives we don't have to feel obligated to be out in the cold for a full hour to get our mileage in.
We're looking forward to working in a few more adventures in the second half of the year as well as seeing how our new neighborhood transforms with each season.
