At the beginning of September I said my newest goal was to do better Q3 than Q2 I knew it was going to be a tall order with some long walks this spring, but I thought I could do it. Well Q3 ended this week, how did I do?
|Time Frame||Steps||Miles walked||Miles biked|
|Totals for 3Q||758,057||316.3||31.66|
|Totals for 2Q||489,726||300.5||98.36|
|Totals for 1Q||0 **||61.88||150.65|
I did it!
Skin of my teeth, but I DID IT.
Time to finish the year out strong. Here are my Q4 #GoTheDist mini goals:
- get to the gym more often. That 31 miles biked is indicative of a larger problem. Walking is good, but so is the gym. I need to find a balance between the two. I think this will come somewhat naturally with the changing weather not being as conducive to walking home.
- Do better than Q1. This is weather driven, Jan-Mar are about as conducive to walking as Oct-December, especially since work is busier than the fall. Q1 was somewhat undercounted, when I got the Jawbone I realized I walked more in a given day than I gave myself credit for so this should be easy.
- Numerical goals, I was going to say one third better than my poorest showing for each total, but 82 miles seems too little. So 2/3 better it is. 102.7 miles walking and 52.5 miles on the bike. I’m hoping I’ve hit both by the end of November, but we’ll see.
** didn’t get the Jawbone Up until May, so no steps until then
