Lots of Two Stepping

My work had a walking challenge where you had to monitor the number of steps you took every day for 43 days.  They gave me a pedometer and had me record the number of steps everyday.  I found the results interesting.  Keep in mind I am training for a 70.3 half ironman during this time.  This does not include biking or swimming.

In 43 days:
Total Steps Recorded:        530,137
Minimum Steps Per Day:   9,504
Goal Steps Per Day:          14,256
Average Steps Per Day:    12,329
Total Miles Walked:           251
Total Calories Burned:       31,185 (just running and waking)

That means I could have consumed (pick your poison):
155 KrispyKreme Glazed Donunts
57   Big Macs
42   Quarter Pound Cheese Burgers
62   Large French Fries
22   Big Mac Happy Meals
67   Egg Nog Lattes

This is not a lot considering I am training for a 70.3.  Imagine if I was just a couch potato.

  1. That is really interesting! I'm always amazed at how the couch potatoes complain when they have to walk a bit at work. So many people also refuse to climb stairs.
