50+ 6K DAILY STEPS CHALLENGE

There is so much evidence for the benefits of walking. 6,000 steps daily should be the minimum we are aiming for, yet how many of us do this number? I’m not sure I do.

That’s why I’m starting the 6K DAILY STEPS CHALLENGE in January (although it’s never too early to start).

How it works

There are two pledges and you choose one

Pledge one

I will walk 6,000 steps every day in January or

Pledge two

I will walk every day and aim to do 6,000 by the end of January.

The 6,000 are made up of day-to-day walking plus any other exercise you may do.  You may have to make an effort to do a bit more walking – eg park away from the supermarket doors, walk to another bus stop – or even take the bus.

What you will need

All you need is a pedometer and a notebook.

If you can walk 6,000 initially, great.  If not, note the number of steps you do on your first day.  That is your baseline.  Then increase your steps by 10% every 3 days (increase more slowly if you need to).

I’ve been doing it for the last few days and it is surprising how the steps mount up.

GIVE IT A GO.  YOU’VE NOTHING TO LOSE – EXCEPT MAYBE A BIT OF WEIGHT.
