Over the past couple of months, I participated in a walking challenge, and am happy to report I walked over one million steps during the eight week event! My final step total was 1,150,902 steps, which also resulted in my being our team's "high stepper".
I also found that I felt stronger and healthier as a result of increasing my daily steps (I averaged over 20,000 steps per day throughout the challenge), and even found my bicycling stamina and strength improved as well. My steps have decreased a bit over the past week due to a terrible cold, but I plan to stay with the daily walking and increase it back up to the 10-20K average per day level as soon as this cold clears. Yay me! 😊
