I’m finding it difficult to hit 10,000 steps on a regular basis. I mean, I went for a morning walk/run yesterday and got almost 4,500 steps. By the time 4:30pm came around yesterday at the office, I was only up to 5,800 steps. Obviously, I’m sitting at my desk way too much…but I was really surprised to only hit that mark after the entire day.
I spent the evening making sure I got my 10,000 steps in…doing whatever I had to do. Today was a day I wasn’t planning on going out for a walk, so that means I’ve got a much tougher time trying to get those steps in.
I don’t know how people do it, especially people who work in an office environment all day. Maybe things will be easier once it slows down a bit at work and it gets a bit nicer outside. I hope so, anyway.
I was feeling a bit sore yesterday and I can feel a bit of tenderness this morning, but I expected that to happen. Thankfully, I didn’t go too nuts yesterday morning so I’m not wrecked by any stretch. I can say, though, that I’m absolutely looking forward to doing this C25K app from the beginning to the end again because I know that I can do it. Last year I was motivated but timid…thinking I could actually run a 5K but not entirely sure. I’ve got the confidence in knowing that I can do it now, so it’s really a matter of trying to keep up the pace.
