What a nice night for walking. I was able to measure my path via Sheila's new (used) car today and am much more certain of the exact distance I walked and when I figured my pace it was exactly the same as last time! Wow! My measurements last time were right. And my pedometer was right on the money.
There, dear sisters, is one of my truly weird things: obsession with synchonizing pedometers and such. Every year I do a unit on the solar system with a series of lessons called "A Walk Through the Solar System" I always get obsessed with exact measurements for our "on-campus" model. We count the one-foot tiles; use pedometers; use trundle wheels; double check -- it's ridiculous!
With intersession this week I've been busy. My pedometer says I've been hitting 9,000-11,000 steps per day just doing my thing, not counting "exercise walking", but I'm only gonna count the "on-purpose" Monthly Marathon walking.
I've gotta get me a walkman!
