Tracking daily steps

Just got on the steps band wagon.

Who is tracking their daily steps?

What are you averaging?

What changes have you noticed?

 

To provide some value, here's a link.

  • I've been tracking them for years, since I got my first Garmin watch.  I'm presently averaging about 8800 (according to the Garmin tracking web page).  I actually have a daily target of 5k, which I've hit for years, but spend longer on the treadmill two days each week (usually) which raises the average.

    I haven't noticed any changes, but my routine hasn't changed in years.  

    I can say that I walk faster than some other people I pass on the sidewalk (when I go out, less often these days).

  • Two weeks in I'm averaging over 20K steps daily (just a 10 hour day) and on days I'm not doing cardio.

    I'm not sure tracking steps is a useful metric.

  • That's a lot of steps, what do you do that involves so much walking?

     

    MHO, tracking steps is easy & it at least helps get some people off the couch.  :-)
