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 Monday with a total of 17,894 steps. While the lowest day was Sunday with a total of 16,162 steps.

I hit my daily step goal a total of 7 times this week and walked a total of 118,686 steps. Giving me an average of 16,955 steps per day across the week. With my steps this week that gives me 2,309,660 steps for the year to date.

Other Thoughts

I had something of a problem with my fitness tracker on Monday. I am not sure if it is the device itself or the app to upload the data. But it only recorded my steps until around midday. I know that it was counting them after that because I check to make sure I have the steps on the device later in the day. However, the following day when I looked the data was not there, and with them being such a closed system it is not something you can just recover.

Thankfully at some point in time, I had turned on the step tracking function on my iPhone. Plus I had been carrying it most of the day and it had a number that looked rather close to what my fitness tracker had logged the night before when I checked it. So I don’t use multiple trackers to cross-reference data every day, but it sure was handy having the backup option there.

The streak also passes a mini-milestone this week of 250 days in a row. The total days so far is now 252 days walking 15,000 steps or more.
