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 19,504 steps. While the lowest day was Saturday with a total of 15,187 steps.

I hit my daily step goal a total of 7 times this week and walked a total of 116,282 steps. Giving me an average of 16,611 steps per day across the week. With my steps this week that gives me 5,050,241 steps for the year to date.

This Time Last Year

Other Thoughts

This week brings me to the fifth milestone for the year, at 5 million steps. By the look of things that puts me just a little bit too far behind to get my goal for the year of 6.5 million steps. I would need to walk 145,000 steps a week for the next ten weeks to make that goal. There is a chance that it is possible but it is also a BIG ask, as that is over 20,000 steps a day on average.

Of course, if you have been reading you might be aware how I like coincidences in numbers. Well, this week with my streak I have arrived at 42 days in a row walking 15,000 steps. It just so happens that this is also the 42nd week of the year.
