Haven't posted in a week- I've been walking a lot, running a bit, and nothing else.
50 minute walk last Wednesday
33 minute walk on the beach last Thursday
27 minutes yoga on Friday
Headed up to Boston for the weekend for my sister's wedding, even with all the activities, I was up early enough in the morning to get in some minutes / miles. It was a very active weekend with lots of short walks, but I'm just going to count the 2 mornings I went out to exercise.
74 minutes on Saturday - I walked down to the Charles River Esplanade and went for a run/walk. I'm adjusting my time to subtract out all the time i spent stopping to take photos and catch Pokemon. ( I caught a lot of new to me pokemon in Boston!!!)
42 minutes on Sunday - Walked to the Boston Public Garden and wandered around taking photos, walked back along Commonwealth mall.
Rest day on Monday
35 minute walk last night
70 minute run/walk tonight
795/800 I'm doing a lot better than I expected this month!!!
No new color changes this morning, but the team is at 89%. - We only need 157 minutes to hit red!!
(And there are a couple of individual team members within 20 minutes of their next color/goal as well!)
Pluto's "Other Pluto" trivia for the day is:
Pluto has four identified moons, Charon, the largest, is not much smaller than Pluto itself. (Pluto is 2,280 kilometers wide, Charon is 1,212 kilometers wide). The other 3 are Nix, Hydra, and newly discovered S/2011 P 1 on July of 2011. ...................................................................http://planetfacts.org/ (credit for Monday-Friday's facts)
P.S. - That last one has a "regular" name now - Kerberos.
Pluto was discovered on February 18th, 1930 - by astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. The existence of an unknown ninth planet had first been proposed by Percival Lowell, who theorized that wobbles in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune were caused by the gravitational pull of an unknown planetary body. (from This Day in History)
It's also "that time" again. - The group will be needing a September host/cheerleader. Official duties are recording goals and keeping track of color changes. (Theming is optional, but a great way to have fun with it!) So tap into your creativity and volunteer spirit, and sign up today!!
