Stepping Numbers

For over five years now, I have been tracking my steps daily and I enjoy looking over the numbers. This section breaks down some of those numbers from this week and cumulative for the year.

High & Low Days

The high day of the week with the most steps was Wednesday, with 22,488 steps.

The low day of the week with the least steps was Saturday, with 17,715 steps.

Weekly Totals

Throughout the week, I met my daily step target on 7 out of 7 days. I walked 137,779 steps for the week with an average of 19,682 steps per day for the week.

Year to Date

With the steps I have walked this week, I now have 2,690,027 steps for the year. That places me around 365,723 steps more than the same time last year. The goal for the year is 7 million steps. There is another 33 weeks to go I need 4,309,937 steps or 130,605 steps per week.

This Time Last Year

I also find it interesting to look back to last year and see a comparison for the week and year to date progress.

So let’s look at the step details from week 20 in 2019. I walked 110,933 steps, giving me an average of 15,847 steps per day. Overall, I have walked 26,846 steps more than this week last year.

The highest day for the week saw me walk, 17,587 steps a difference of 4,901 less than this year. While the lowest day for the week saw me walk, 15,152 steps a difference of 2,563 less than this year.

Other Thoughts

The day to day step this week might have been different, but otherwise this week was almost a duplicate of last week. The difference in total steps for the two weeks was around 150 steps. With the low day even closer, separated by just 70 steps.

Unlike other years when working towards a goal I have had some big variances week to week, I am not finding that as much this year. It definitely takes a little work, but I am finding a consistency in my walking week to week, almost.

This week I also passed 250 days since I last walked less than 15,000 steps in a day. I think I have broken runs on this maybe 8 or 9 times. I could be more precise, but the way I have the data it is difficult to review. What I know though is the longest streak I have completed is 428 days in a row. It is a figure I will aim to beat, but of course still a long way off.

In other news, in Queensland some restrictions have lifted a little around COVID-19. I hope that in the next month I might get out into nature for a walk or hike. Also in June some local travel restrictions will lift and I might go away for two or three nights somewhere in Queensland.
