The dreaded Friday !

Well its nearly here again. Me & Angie get so upset every friday , as she stays at home , and I have to go to work.
I have cycled 5.2 miles today , and walked nearly two,and thats before i go to work! I am determined to smash the record for activity this month,which is held by last July at the moment.
We have had a BBQ today , but easily pointable , 2 turkey burgers and 2 burger buns , 10 points!
I had a hicup with my pedometer yesterday , i measured my stride , and it was 22 inches , and i was using "average" on the pedometer , which is 27" apparently!
So i entered my stride manually,at the time i had 9600 footsteps, and had walked nearly 6 miles,but it reset itself! Also, now i have to walk 5100 steps a day to be "healthy" but now its 5100 !!


  1. Ah that sucks about the steps. I feel I shoudl continue my pedometer advice but this has made me wonder about my stride length too.

    I must have far too much time on my hands as I found this online I used it to work out how far I walked as I walked a specfic route the other day and it came up as a similar distance as my pedometer said suggesting my stride length isn't too far off the average. Not sure if it'll be any help to you but worth a shot.

    Good luck :)

  2. Thanks Shell, I have runkeeper on my iphone , so today im going to walk a mile,not put my pedometer on until i do, then see what the ped says vs sat nav on the phone, if they are near,i will be well chuffed !
