2014: The 1,000,000 Step Club ... who's in?

#1HugDaddyPosted 12/25/2013 5:01:01 PM
Given that New Year's is around the corner, I was thinking about doing something to improve my health that was easy to measure and track. I walk with my 3DS just about everywhere... how hard would it be to walk 1,000,000 steps in 2014? Could you walk 2,740 steps per day consistently? At about 2.2 feet per step, that comes out to about 1.1 miles per day. I could also add incentives stating that I couldn't play the 3DS until hitting at least 1,000 steps in a day.

Who's up for it? We could keep each other accountable, too! :)

2,700 steps a day should be easy enough if you keep it with you all the time.

Make it 10,000,000. I generally walk or run about 3 miles a day. Would be incentive to get ready for a marathon.

Here's some encouragement:
I've taken 5,024,625 steps since I got my 3DS at launch. It has been almost three years since then. I haven't been actively working towards this, and in fact have spent many days not even reaching the 1000 mark.

This shouldn't be too hard to do. It sounds kinda daunting, but if you work at it actively you might reach 1,000,000 in September or so.

With the old pokewalkers I got 5-12k steps everyday.
2k is easy to do.

Hmm forgot that I'd have to carry that on my runs... I might have a pocket for it in a camelback that I use when I ride... And it would sort of be weigh modification too. Sounds fun!

Where do you find total steps?

I think that the most important thing about this is to make it personal and relevant to _you_. You are the one who knows if 1,000 or 2,740 or 10,000 steps per day is a challenge for you.

We could make up levels if we want to:

Bronze = 1,000,000 steps
Silver = 5,000,000 steps
Gold = 10,000,000 steps

Thoughts?

2,740 steps a day is pretty easy. I have 1,276,015 for the year 2013 so far.

Would be a bit harder with an XL but I could always wear a small backpack while running! (makes it much harder too -_-)

Anyways, I'm in!
