I am proud to say that my half-marathon training has increased my step count. January 2016 has been my best month yet. Totally patting myself on the back.
Below I've graphed my average daily step count and my total monthly step count and comparing it to Will's for the last 6 months. Recall that I had my Fitbit stolen in October which is why there's a dip in October 2015.
My average daily steps in January: 13,608 versus Will's 12,966.
My total monthly steps in January: 421,858 versus Will's 401,965.
I had a 14.5% increase in activity from December to January. While Will had a minuscule drop in step activity (about -0.4% change).
Below is what the daily step counts looked like. The spike on the 17th is my personal record for most daily steps. It also beats Will's daily record of 25,370 steps. I got 27,026 steps that day.
Note that in 2015, my daily step record was 20,825.
In January 2016 I managed to get above 20,000 steps 5 times. (I only got above 20,000 steps 3 times in 2015). Hooray for running and training!
In the last couple of weeks I've slowed down on my training due to a bug I caught, but I'll be running again soon. Stay tuned for February's update next month :)
