Missing the mark

Today was the first day of the Walk to Wellness program at ISU. Basically, there are teams of 3-5 people, and we received pedometers once we registered (first 500 people to sign up got them free - our team included!). We have to wear the pedometers all day, from wake-up to bedtime, and enter our numbers of steps into a web site. We set a personal goal, and work to meet it.

The overall goal is to walk 10,000 steps per day.

I was so certain I could make that goal, so I set 10K as my personal goal.

Right.

So far today: 3136 steps

I am such a loser.

Well, this wellness program lasts the entire month of October, so maybe by the end I'll be able to meet my goal...

Over the years I've found that a good rough approximation of distance covered, for me, is a mile for every 2,000 steps. So 10,000 steps would be 5 miles a day.

At that rate I could leave today and arrive in Des Moines on May 12th, in plenty of time for next year's Faire.

:D
