Hello! It's been too long. I'm sorry for the lack of content. I'll make up for it soon, I promise.
Here's the Fitbit step comparison for February with Will. Unfortunately for me I didn't beat Will last month, but here's to hoping March changes that!
My February daily step average was 12,169 with a total of 352,914 monthly steps.
Will's February daily step average was 14,370 with a total of 416,748 monthly steps.
We are both training for half marathons, so we ran about 9 or 10 miles on those two days with spikes. Yes! We both got above 30,000 steps on the same day. Will's new personal record is 30,912 while mine is a tiny bit higher at 31,975. Sorry, not sorry, Will.
I missed goal 3 times last month. I was sick in the beginning of the month with an annoying cough due to running during a rainy day with crazy winds. That cough kept me from training for a good 2 weeks. Excuses, I know, but hey! it's true.
Now that I've had my Fitbit for a little over a year, I can make annual comparisons.
My February 2015 daily step average was: 10,471 with a monthly total of 293,196. In terms of totals, that's about 17% lower than this year (taking the extra day into account). Talk about healthier habits thanks to half-marathon training-- maybe I should keep this up and actually turn into a runner.
Last year I missed goal 11 times and interestingly for both years I didn't meet goal on February 6th. This year it was due to being bedridden with a cold and last year it was due to commuting from San Diego to Glendale. I thought it was interesting how my total daily steps are almost exact.
My half marathon is in just a few days. That should be a nice spike on next month's update. Wish me luck!
