6 million steps in under a year (...and other milestones!)

Postby Dave » 05 Dec 2018 18:58

I passed another milestone on yesterday's hilly walk - the total ascent since I began recording just over two years ago is now 250,002 feet! :D

Measuring ascent isn't very accurate for various reasons. For example, on yesterday's walk my watch recorded an ascent of 1,519 ft. For the same route, the OS website gives the ascent as 1,671 ft., while Google Earth makes it 1,893 ft. However, I've used the least generous measure (my watch) so that's okay... ;)

Well done Dave! Do you have any favourite areas that you have enjoyed, more than others? I guess so. I wish we were fit enough to do something like this, but alas I think we have left it too late!! I used to do quite a lot, when we lived in Lancashire, swimming, cycling, played volleyball, keep fit classes etc. We do try to get out more, when the weather is better. Roll on Spring and Summer!!
