you no longer feel a need to meticulously post your statistics.

i haven't posted, I have no idea how many days in a row I have walked, but I am at the point that if I don't walk, I feel unhappy. As of today, my walk is roughly 2 miles long, 1 mile out and 1 mile back, and it takes about an hour. I have lost five pounds (that's 1/4 stone for you literal Englishmen) and some clothes I ordered from Land's End that were too tight are now wearable.

When I first started this project, the thought of walking two miles a day wasn't really something I expected to happen very fast, but now here it is, and my walk takes enough time that I won't be increasing the distance for a while--an hour to exercise is fine, but I really don't have much more than that time-wise.

Next, I am going to try to speed things up. I honestly don't know how fast I will be able to go. According to mapmywalk.com, a portion of the walk reaches the equivalent of a level five climb (and one section has an 8% grade, which is lovely going down but another matter entirely on the way back!). I expect that after all the hill practice, I'd probably be pretty darn close to a fifteen minute mile if I were on level ground.

If I can speed up enough to finish the walk in 30-40 minutes, I'll start increasing distance again.
