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 Tuesday with a total of 23,577 steps. While the lowest day was Wednesday with a total of 15,725 steps.

I hit my daily step goal a total of 7 times this week and walked a total of 131,077 steps. Giving me an average of 18,725 steps per day across the week. With my steps this week that gives me 994,435 steps for the year to date.

This Time Last Year

Looking back to Week 8 of 2016, following are some of the step numbers for comparison. I walked a total of 115,163 steps with an average of 16,451 steps per day. The highest day was 18,439 and the lowest day was 15,334. To read more check out Walking Update – Week 8, 2016.

Other Thoughts

Although I have set myself a little higher target this year, I am not off to a good start to get there. It would seem that this same week last year I hit my first milestone for the year of 1 million steps. I may be just shy of the milestone this year, just 6,000 steps at the moment. But I am actually almost 65,000 steps behind where I was at the same time last year. If this keeps up I am going to have some trouble getting to that 6.5 million steps.

Otherwise, the streak is still looking to be going well, and this week I have got to 169 days in a row walking 15,000 steps a day.
