AFRICA WALK

 

The Explanation & Rules
Started 04/30/2000 - going till we finish... Finished 8/31/00



The Explanation:
Say the average good walking pace is 4 miles per hour, that converts to 1 mile per every 15 minutes.   SO,
for every 15 minutes we log, we will call it a mile.
We will be walking through Africa. We will jump from country to country seeing differnet parts of this great continent.

The Rules:
As you will see any activity requiring energy exerted is accepted ie;   {walking, hiking, weeding, biking, swimming, climbing, shopping, cleaning, use your imagination but you name it.}
Bring along a friend or all your friends. Count all of your partners minutes and sessions as well. Whether it is 5 minutes or two hours per session it counts.

Sunday night is the weekly status turn in totals day.
You do not have to declare the activity when you e-mail your totals in, just how many sessions a week and how many minutes each session.
Send your totals to:   challenge@walkablock.com  

The challenge is to generate activity in our lives, walking is wonderful but not the end all.
Stay active and keep track of your progress daily.

Example;
Your total minutes will be added together and divided by 15 and that is how many miles we get credit for. THEN add the total sessions of activity you had for that week and credit it as a mile. It would be easy to have 15 or 20 activity sessions per week.

6  (sessions)  /  15,20,45,10,35,50 =  175 minutes  divided by 15  =  11.6 miles plus 6 sessions  =  17.6 miles.

All you have to do is send in the sessions and minutes, ie.
(6   /  15,20,45,10,35,50)/ {Your Name/Sunday date} 
and I will do the math.


Let's do this because we can.
