Other Thoughts

The week has been one of trials for my walking. I had a few days that I was not so motivated to get out and walk. However, even from the daily numbers you could not pick which days these were.

Often the problem I encounter is not so much a lack of motivation to walk. But something which saps my energy or motivation for a portion of the day. Thankfully, these periods will only last for a few hours. It just means that I end up walking more later in the day.

The total steps for the week saw me just edge over the average I am looking for to reach my goal. It turns out to be the ideal situation, as the idea for me setting the goal is not to reach it halfway through the year. I want to have a little leeway at the end of the year. But ideally I will reach the goal between the middle of December and Christmas. Time will tell how this turns out.

There is not much more to add to this week. So I hope that you have found some interesting places to walk this week.
