Walking is said to have many health improvements. I decided to look up some of the reasons why a person would walk 10,000+ steps in a day:
- Lose weight.
- Stabilize blood sugars.
- Make your heart stronger.
- Make your brain perform better.
So I thought I’d try it. Now 365 straight days would be very, very difficult. So I decided just to try and hit 10,000 that day. And to my surprise, I did get all my steps in. I decided the next day to try it again. And the day after.
Today will be my 5th straight day at 10,000 steps. Hard to believe… I averaged 2,900 steps in all of August and the first two weeks of September. Here’s a link to my daily step count.
Will I reach 365 straight days? Maybe. But I do think I can do it today. And that’s what matters,, right?
