Looking at The Numbers

For the month of May, I achieved my daily step goal on 31 days. The month saw me walk 588,356 steps with a daily average of 18,979 steps.

The day with the most steps was the 13th of May with 22,488 steps. The day with the lowest steps was the 2nd of May, with just 16,518 steps.

Walking Thoughts for May

Even though I found it a challenge over the last two weeks of the month to maintain the weekly totals I needed, I still did well for the month. My daily average steps for the month are the lowest this year, but overall they still land above the average I need to maintain.

May is also the first month for the year where my number of days with over 20,000 steps in a month has fallen below 10. I achieved just 7 days with over 20,000 steps for May.

As I have talked about in the past two weeks I need to ensure I don’t let my numbers keep slipping just that little. It can become an endemic part of the process, just a little off each week, can lead to failure right at the end. I think the result will be I need to just keep a better eye on my steps each day.

Sharing the details of my walking and being on top of updating statistics each week I think is one of the big things to help me get where I am at the moment. In past years, while it appears my stats were updated regularly, the reality is different. I would update a bunch of weeks at one time and rarely had a top-down understanding of my position. Which ultimately has led to me not achieving any of my yearly goals in the past few years.

This year I have been much more focused on getting the statistics updated on a weekly basis. While I have missed this on two occasions, just as the past two weeks. It has been good otherwise and I always know where I am at.

There is not much more to share for May in terms of numbers or thoughts. As always, I hope you are enjoying your walking and will have another monthly update at the end of June.
