I decided back in January to set myself the challenge of walking 1000 miles over the course of the year. I thought it would be a good motivator for me to get up and move more. The #walk1000miles challenge was set up by Country Walking. At first I thought ‘that would be tough’ but actually it is only walking around 2.7 miles per day, 20 miles per week or 83 miles per month.
I already measure how much I walk a day with my trusty Fitbit. So I thought it would be easy to link in with this challenge. The only thing that I’m struggling with is an app to keep up with how much I am doing on a monthly basis. Fitbit emails me weekly so I am currently keeping those emails and adding them together for the monthly summary.
I am over the moon with the results from month one and am over my target! It really is making me move more as I want to try and achieve that 2.7 miles per day. Some days it’s easier than others!
