I should really say 313,614 steps down 5,686,386 steps to go!!
So as you can see from the picture I have a lot of things to be proud of this month, and a few to work on. Yes, I didn’t achieve my planned 11,000 step average but coming in at 10,000 steps is still a great achievement. Consider this, my 4 rest days where I didn’t do anything were about 3,500 steps average. If you take this as a better gauge of my average steps without doing workouts this means that I would have only had about 108,000 steps normally and it would have taken me until near the end of March to walk the number of steps that I completed this month.
Moving forward this month I am planning to try and average about 12,000 plus steps a day. This is my stage wise approach to trying to get my average step count in the 18,000 to 20,000 step range for summer to make up for these first few months. Note: 6 million steps is an average of 16,000+ a day for the year. One rule that I am going to make for myself for this month is to only take one “rest day” a week and all rest days need to be at least 6,000 steps.
