10 000 Steps

This year I have been participating in the "10000 Steps" Program and am amazed at how many steps I walk in the course of a normal day. It's very easy to join and certainly makes you aware of how little or how much exercise you normally do. The aim of the program is to encourage people to walk at least 10 000 steps every day.

The weather has been so hot that I haven't done any extra walking this year, but I plan to now that the cooler days have arrived. The only requirement is that you wear a pedometer and record your steps online. There are numerous charts to show your progress and a huge list of other walkers to compare yourself with.

Give it a try and walk yourself to health.

  1. Hi Liz! Did you keep walking and forget to turn around? We're missing you.
