Today marks 8 weeks in on my million steps challenge.  I have just over five weeks left. 

For those 8 weeks, I have averaged:
  • a fraction over 12000 steps per day
  • about 95 active minutes per day
  • a fraction under 9kms per day
I have racked up a total of 500kms walked over the the 8 weeks and just shy of 678,000 steps. 

From June 13th, when I got my fantastic Fitbit, to June 30th, I covered 74.78kms (which I was very proud of).  In July, I covered 274km and in August to date, I have covered 225kms.  We've added an additional karate class to our schedule each week for August (a longer class than our current one with another great Sensei - I just wish it wasn't the day before our other karate class).

I can honestly say that my activity level has at least doubled over the last 8 weeks.  I can feel it in my knees and legs - which isn't helped by the heat given that they are swollen up and horribly cramp-y.  My ankles are officially cankles at the moment and I'm not entirely happy with that.  My entire thigh cramped last night from hip down to knee.  Really annoying.  And that's my whinge for the day done. 

I do feel better over all.  Healthier, more able to do things, although Karate still kills me.  I'm contemplating doing some walking races (I'm not up to running yet so next best thing, right?).  Not sure.  But yeah, I'm glad that I started this challenge.
