Today I want to share with you and update of my walking for week 22 of 2020. The week started on Monday the 25th of May and concluded on Sunday the 31st of May.
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 Thursday, with 18,874 steps.
The low day of the week with the least steps was Saturday, with 17,570 steps.
Throughout the week, I met my daily step target on 7 out of 7 days. I walked 127,108 steps for the week with an average of 18,158 steps per day for the week.
Year to Date
With the steps I have walked this week, I now have 2,945,307 steps for the year. That places me around 401,608 steps more than the same time last year. The goal for the year is 7 million steps. There is another 31 weeks to go I need 4,054,693 steps or 130,796 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 22 in 2019. I walked 111,530 steps, giving me an average of 15,932 steps per day. Overall, I have walked 15,578 steps more this year.
The highest day for the week saw me walk, 18,031 steps a difference of just 843 steps less than this year. While the lowest day for the week saw me walk, 15,069 steps a difference of 2,501 steps less than this year.

The second week in a row where I have missed the goal for the week. I needed to achieve 130,681 steps and only made 127,108 steps. So I have lost roughly 2,500 steps again this week from my buffer.
I think one aspect of missing this target comes from not paying enough attention to my steps daily. Combined with again more activities where I do not do the walking each hour of the day. Such as this week, I end up spending more time one day working on listing items on Facebook Marketplace, trying to clear some stuff from the house. On days like this it is not only a case of trying to catch up to my minimum 15,000 steps per day, but also get to the higher target of roughly 19,000 per day on average to meet my goal.
In fact, looking back over the week there was only one day when I even passed the daily average I need to meet my weekly goal. So this is something I will have to keep more at the forefront of my mind. It is ok to miss one or two days reaching that point per week, but when you miss most days, it can be challenging.
At the moment I won’t try to dig too deep into why I have missed the mark two weeks in a row. But if it continues, I will need to work out what I can change to solve the problem. I hope you have enjoyed your week walking and will be back next week to share another update.
