I promised on my last post that I would give a midweek check-in on my step challenge. My 7 day running total is 61,934. I’ve had 3 11K days so far this week – which is well above the 30%. Did I make my goal too easy? Guess time will tell. I have a habit of hitting goals out of the gate strong and then life seems to get in the way (and one week doesn’t make a trend – but it is a nice start).
The first two days, I made the extra effort to get outside for some walks – on the 13th – I split my walks in two (one in the afternoon as a break from my endless conference calls and one in the evening to get some fresh air). I had a quick business trip in NYC and even though it was raining – got some good steps in back and forth from the office, hotel and dinner. Even with the rain – it was an awesome time in NYC. I get to work with some really great people – we don’t get together that often and it was great seeing some co-workers I haven’t seen in a year or so.
Here is my update:
- 1/15: 8,716 (NYC) (and counting)
- 1/14: 11,694 (NYC)
- 1/13: 11,734
- 1/12: 11,400
Now the pressure is on to keep up the pace! 🙂
