Last week, I did a 10k steps a day challenge. Naturally I thought it’s something worth writing about, so here we are.
What’s the challenge? It’s exactly what it sounds like, the challenge is to take at least 10 000 steps every day for a week.
Was it completed? Yup
Was it difficult? I think I had one day where I struggled, but on average I found it very doable and manageable.
What’s the point? The point is to increase your physical activity without necessarily dedicating time to exercise. It’s to show yourself how much you can actually do just by focusing on walking.
Was it helpful? I think it’s quite helpful when it comes to remembering that days when you don’t have time to go to the gym aren’t necessarily wasted from a health or fitness perspective. It’s also a good motivator because literally every step you take helps you reach that goal.
Will I do it again? I plan on doing this maybe once a month, especially if I don’t think I can fit the gym into my schedule.
Any problems? Like an absolute idiot, I decided to break in new shoes. Bandaids and Compeed are your friends. My heels are still essentially open wounds. So yeah, don’t be an idiot.
