Last week was such a great week. I was competing in a 100 K step's challenge. I had the goal to brake my most steps in week personnel record. Which I did!
I end up finishing first in the challenge, but really there was no competition, from the first day, I was so much ahead that the closest person to me couldn't even see my dust.
Fast forward to this week... My intention was to take it easy, my goal was to do 15,000 steps per day for a grand total of 105,000 steps for the week. I know so lazy right? haha
BUT, when you do good and your step count increase, you get in more advanced challenge. So I was moved to the 125 K challenge. Darn those people are CRAZY-er! (just my personnel observation)
Within the first 2 hours, I was number one (no one else had synch their vivofit). But it didn't last, few more hours later; I had slipped to 6th.
For me those challenge really work, for instance because everyone was doing so good, Tuesday I walked 22,000 steps instead of the 15,000 I had planned. And that was not even enough to keep me on the podium. It just kept me within range!
This morning, I'm back to 6th, but I'm having fun. How so you might be wondering... I go the extra mile (literally and figuratively).
One thing I think is strange is that no one comment on those challenges. It's call Garmin Connect, but no one else is saying anything. I always write comments, I'm not sure if it help motivate or torment them but, hey, I'm having fun!
