As I mentioned earlier, I started counting my steps on July 20, a few days after my 61st birthday. I want to see how many steps I take in a full year. Since then, my pedometer wore out and I got a new one. I thought it would be fun to give a little progress report one third of a year in.
After four months, I've taken over 1,707,000 steps, an average of 13,880 a day. My days vary quite a bit, some being lower and some much higher. I had 24 days when I took less than 10,000 steps, and 12 days when I took more than 20,000 steps.
My five biggest days:
October 13 - 32,604 steps (hiking in the Little Wilson Creek Wilderness)
October 20 - 31,255 steps (hiking up Rocky Mount in SNP)
October 11 - 29,955 steps (hikes to Cabin Creek, up through the Virginia Highlands, and to Mount Rogers)
September 27 - 28,761 steps (hiking up Mount Robertson in SNP)
October 12 - 28,601 steps (hiking in the Lewis Fork Wilderness)
I think I am on track to cross five million steps this year of my life!
