Did you hear that? It was the sound of one of my personnel record being broken.
Previously, Apr 27 was my most “Steps in a Day's” record. On that nice and sunny day, I went out and walk 26,464 steps.
Records are nice but they have to be beat once in a while, yesterday, in a perfect day, with my MP3 playing tune in my head, I broke that record and step 28,009 times!
Just to give you an idea of what is involved, it takes me an hour to walk 7,500 steps. So I was out walking for about 3 hours and 45 minutes. Now I didn't walk that long in one shot, I stopped for a few pit stops and to recharge my MP3. The distance was 20 KM (12.4 miles), it's almost half a marathon!
I want to walk over 2 more personal record in the next 8 days:
Most Steps in a Week which is 150,890 steps (Apr 27 - May 3, 2015). I already have walks 91,226 steps this week so for the next 3 days, I have to walk an average of 19,888 steps (I'll round it up to 20,000 just to have a little cushion.
Most Steps in a Month which is 489,907 steps (Apr 2015). Currently for July, I am at 384,857 steps. There is 8 days left so if I maintains 13,132 steps per day, I'll have crush that record too.
Why put myself through that? I don't have a logical answer but man kind walk on the moon, climb Everest, run marathons just because they could.
