Prior to April 17, 2020, I had this notion of a ‘Day Off’. One day of reduced exercise to give my muscles a chance to rest. It was 3-days on (i.e., of exercise), 1-day off. That meant I exercised 6-days out of 7. I had been doing that for decades — BUT that was when I used to run/jog.
So, I decided that the ‘Day Off’ shouldn’t mean I did less than 10,000-steps, actually 12,000 steps.
Once I dropped this ‘Day Off’ I noticed I was getting close to 500,000 steps a months. COOL.
A NEW GOAL: 500,000-steps a month.
Yes., 500,000 steps a month is easier in months with 31-days.
I was REAL concerned about February; 28 days & COLD. But, I prevailed.
During this year I had three (3) cataract surgeries — they had to operate on my right eye TWICE. Well, I still managed to get in my at least 12,000 steps a day even on those days. The surgeon knew of my desire to walk & as such added some EXTRA STITCHES to keep the lens in place. He took them out, with teezers, when I went in for my check-in.
So, that was last year.
I feel good. I feel great. You should try it.
