July was a pretty tough month for walking steps. It was hot!! And early in the month I was on an unofficial vacation from life - no blogging, no walking. I still tracked my steps, but I made no effort to bump up my totals. As a result I didn't reach my July goal of 10,500 daily steps average for the month. My 30 day average was approximately 9,900 steps - ok, just not at goal.
So the August goal is a repeat - 10,500 daily steps average.
But today, the last day of July, I wanted to go out with a "bang." With my 30 minutes of stretching (conversion steps) and my 2 long walks today, I reached 17,000 steps! That is a record for me since May. (My all time record was 31,000+ steps in one day back in 2009.)
Anyway, I am pleased that I ended the month well.
Finally, I am looking forward to Fall and Winter (my favorite season). If I can keep focused, keep increasing my step totals, keep increasing my physical endurance now ... the fall should be great.
Less heat, better endurance!!
