Looking at The Numbers

For the month of February, I achieved my daily step goal 29 days. I walked 573,483 steps for the month which works out to an average of 19,775 steps per day.

The day with the most steps was the 16th of February with 23,149 steps. The day with the lowest steps was the 18th of February, with just 16,838 steps.

Walking Thoughts for February

I had a reasonably good month of walking throughout February. I achieved a good total for the steps and maintained a good pace towards my goal for the year.

Looking at the average daily steps for the month, I achieved 19,775 steps per day on average. At that rate, if I had another two days in the month, I would have surpassed my previous best month ever. I did not even think about that until now. Because I knew that February is a shorter month so there would have been a lot of work to beat the highest month.

I also only had one day that I walked less than 18,000 steps. Which without checking I believe would still make this the first time that I have achieved that outcome. Out of all 62 months I have tracked my steps, I have only had 10 months that averaged over 18,000 steps per day.

There have also only been two other months where I averaged over 19,000 steps. The first was October 2015, and the second was just last month in January 2020. But this month, even though I have not broken the record for my best month, I have achieved the highest average steps per day with 19,775.

Another little quirky thing I have noticed as entering the data for the table above is some very close round numbers. I think, as I have said in the past, trying to hit any exact number of steps in a day is nearly impossible. But three days I was so close, on the 4th I had 20,002, the 6th I had 21,001 and the 22nd I had 19,999. These numbers are nothing special, just an interesting occurrence I think.

I hope you have had a good month of walking yourself and that you enjoy seeing my numbers. I look forward to sharing more over the coming weeks and another monthly update in March.
