Did the first 5 km, 152 to go! (I really need to learn how to put a ticker on here,but this will have to do for now.)
I was surprised at how quickly I could bike through it, 5 K only took me about 17 minutes! I was going a pretty good clip, but it's encouraging to know that this challenge won't be consuming my life. I could see it being more challenging running at least some of them, so I may try this too.
I posted a thread for people to join the challenge and the response thus far has been encouraging. For those of you reading this blog as a result, welcome!
So, someone quite clever posted that there are 58 days for this challenge and that it represents 1.68 miles everyday (or 2.71 kilometers for those of us that use metric). Since I know I likely won't exercise everyday, I'll be aiming for at least 5 kilometers when I do workout, probably 4 or 5 times a week. I figure if more clicks get done, all the better. I like having something to strive for though.
Oh, one thing I am hoping to do is post some stuff about the historical sites and attractions we might actually see on the trip from Nazareth to Bethlehem....I'm sure there will be info available online since it is such a tourist attraction. Anyone actually been to Israel?
