Stepping Numbers

I am a bit of a numbers geek at times, so of course, I like to look a little closer at some of the numbers behind the individual days.

First up is the highest day for the week which was Sunday with a total of 18,348 steps. While the lowest day was Tuesday with a total of 15,913 steps.

I hit my daily step goal a total of 7 times this week and walked a total of 118,389 steps. Giving me an average of 16,912 steps per day across the week. With my steps this week that gives me 4,869,389 steps for the year to date.

Other Thoughts

In a way, this has been a good and bad week, but let’s start with the bad. the bad aspect comes from the fact that it has seemed like a challenge most days to get the steps in. For some reason, there are weeks when the steps just seem to happen. But there are those weeks when it just feels like an uphill battle to get there every day.

There was one day that seemed to get there much easier and that was Sunday. The difference on Sunday was that I went out to somewhere different and also made a specific stop for a walk in a park (something that I will share a post on later in the week). Even though I have been doing this for five years, working on a daily goal, it still can come with its challenges.

On the other side of the coin, it has been a good week. One of the main reason is that even though it has been a hard push to get there each day, I still did push a little further, each day. I have done this because I am looking to hit a big milestone very soon and am of course keen to get there. That Milestone is 30 million steps and at the moment looks likely around the end of next month.
