Walking to Mordor

Postby lcockitt » Fri Feb 20, 2015 3:33 am

It seems that a few people fancy the challenge of walking to Mordor, so I thought I'd start a new thread for it :grin:

I've put together a spread sheet, which I hope is user friendly! There are two sheets - the first one is to put cumulative miles/km to see how far you've travelled since the start and the second sheet allows you to keep a weekly record in case you're interested in comparing to previous weeks. I thought that the 1st March would be a good start date, giving people time to decide if they want to join up. Don't worry if you decide you want to join up after the start - latecomers are more than welcome to the party!

Here's a link to the spread sheet

Remember - this is just for fun and is not a race!



(I'm not a spread sheet or Google document whizz so please let me know if you're struggling to open this or if I've made any errors! I may have done this in a rush on my lunch break...)

Looks good. Though I believe it's spelled "Hobbiton". ;)

I had thought about doing something like this, but wasn't quite sure how to do it.

Also, just going to drop this link here for people who want even more details about where they are at.

YAY! I was hoping someone would make a thread for this. I want to find a clever way to document the project however. Anyone have any good ideas?

Is this basically recording how many steps you do in a day and then relating it to the journey to Mordor?

My 3ds records my steps, so I could easily join in.

I'm guessing this was discussed in the healthy eating etc thread which I don't visit...

You know, this might just be the motivation I need to start walking to work again, instead of taking the bus every day... Can I join this if I can only estimate how far I walk each day? I don't have a step counter or anything like that.
