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 Wednesday with a total of 19,419 steps. While the lowest day was Tuesday with a total of 17,158 steps.

I hit my daily step goal a total of 7 times this week and walked a total of 125,502 steps. Giving me an average of 17,928 steps per day across the week. With my steps this week that gives me 5,597,695 steps for the year to date.

This Time Last Year

Other Thoughts

Over the past couple of weeks my walking as been increasing a little. Until this week where I have walked the most steps in a week since late March. It is only from looking at the numbers that I noticed this.

The biggest driving factor for this I think probably comes from my approach towards 30 million steps. However, that does not entirely make sense as it was Monday this week when I actually achieved that goal. So you might have thought that my steps would drop off from that point.

On the other hand maybe it was that somewhere in my mind I have been thinking towards my goal for the year. I had been hoping to acheive 6.5 million steps for the year. However, with just 30 days left of the year and nearly 900,000 steps short of that goal, it looks to be out of reach. To make it I would need to walk on average 30,000+ steps per day for the next 30 days.

It would be rather interesting to try and achieve that goal. There would most definitely be a few records of my own that I would break. But at this point I have definitely not prepared or planned to take that on. So there is a very small chance of it happening.

If I am totally honest goals and records will likely be much more of a focus next year. There have been a number of issues and situations throughout the year that have impacted my walking a little. Whereas in the next year I don’t see them being such a problem and a much clearer and positive year ahead.

Anyway, I hope when it comes to walking and your fitness that you have some goals. I hope that you are able to achieve your goals and have a positive outcome.
