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

Well, that's it for another year.

As 2020 began, I decided my target for the year would be to walk 3,000 miles and all was going nicely to plan... until lockdown.

So that we could continue to do a significant amount of exercise daily, we bought a treadmill. That, combined with me taking a real cut in grandfather duties, meant that I clocked up far more miles than I would otherwise have done - after all, there wasn't much else to do!

The mileage for 2020 was:

Normal outdoor distance recorded by GPS: 2,486 miles
Distance recorded for treadmill activities: 1,630 miles

Total recorded distance in 2020: 4,116 miles.

Great result for you. I wonder how many people can really say what they have achieved this year, apart from getting through it? So well done!

Thank you both. :)

I must admit that a big factor was discovering that, after a lifetime of denial, I actually enjoy running and in the latter part of the year a fair bit of the distance was done at a jog! :D
