Today I want to share with you and update of my walking for week 23 of 2020. The week started on Monday the 1st of June and concluded on Sunday the 7th of June.
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 20,823 steps.
The low day of the week with the least steps was Monday, with 17,735 steps.
Throughout the week, I met my daily step target on 7 out of 7 days. I walked 133,512 steps for the week with an average of 19,073 steps per day for the week.
Year to Date
With the steps I have walked this week, I now have 3,078,819 steps for the year. That places me around 422,154 steps more than the same time last year. The goal for the year is 7 million steps. There is another 30 weeks to go I need 3,921,181 steps or 130,706 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 23 in 2019. I walked 112,966 steps, giving me an average of 16,138 steps per day. Overall, I have walked 20,546 steps more this year.
The highest day for the week saw me walk, 19,557 steps a difference of 1,266 less than this year. While the lowest day for the week saw me walk, 14,356, steps a difference of 3,379 less than this year.

After the last couple of weeks just missing my goal for the week, I am heartened to share I turned the trend around this week. I needed to walk 130,796 and achieved 133,512 around 2,700 steps more than needed.
Even though in the past week I have still spent time on hobbies like fishing and also time preparing more stuff to sell, I have taken a more active look at my walking daily. I achieved my daily goal on four occasions instead of just the single day like last week.
This week I have also achieved my third milestone for the year, passing 3 million steps. It appears to have been on Wednesday the 3rd of June, which is 21 days earlier than the same milestone last year.
It is amazing to me just how much difference there can be not just between the two years, but also on a weekly basis. Just this week I have walked over 20,000 steps extra to the same week last year. It is almost like I am getting a whole extra day of walking into the same time.
Then when I look at the year to date difference which last week surpassed 400,000 steps. It means on average this year I am walking around 2,500 steps more per day than I did last year.
An additional note I will make this week is with my daily streak. It is not something I talk about too often now, and this week it has reached no sort of milestone, but is up to 276 days in a row since I last missed the 15,000 steps per day mark.
I look forward to sharing more numbers with you next week. I hope you are enjoying your walking as much as I do and found a pleasant spot to take a walk.
