Stepping Numbers

I am a bit of a numbers geek at times, so of course, I like to look a little closer at some of the numbers behind the individual days.

First up is the highest day for the week which was Friday with a total of 22,236 steps. While the lowest day was Tuesday with a total of 15,645 steps.

I hit my daily step goal a total of 7 times this week and walked a total of 121,375 steps. Giving me an average of 17,339 steps per day across the week. With my steps this week that gives me 173,514 steps for the year to date.

This Time Last Year

Other Thoughts

Here we are in the first week of the new year. It is a chance to look forward at what the year might bring and what I am going to try and work towards this year.

The first thing is that I am going to look to take my streak all the way through the year. Currently, I am up to 172 days with this week towards walking 15,000 steps per day. If I was to get through the whole year that would bring me to 538 days. But I guess there is a long way between now and the end of the year.

The second thing is a little extra goal for the year in regards to steps. Last year I made it just short of 5.6 million steps. Additionally, if I was to just walk my goal of 15,000 steps each day, I would walk 5.5 million steps this year. So I thought why not push it a little bit further and aim to walk 6 million steps this year.

Finally, you might have noticed above I am going to start including a small section which shares the numbers from the same week in the previous year. I am not sure how much benefit this will be but would like any feedback you might have.
