Well, I did it. I completed my first half marathon on March 13 and it was so much fun! I look forward to signing up for another half marathon as I found that training for a half marathon definitely increased my motivation for running and exceeding my step goals. I'll keep you posted on what race and when, but for now here's my step count comparison for March.
Thanks to last year's data on my step count I can do an YoY comparison. Check out my improvements:
Now onto the comparison with Will. Clearly Will beat my step count most days. In fact, I only beat him 5 days out of 31. You can tell that after the half marathon my step count was well below Will's step count. To be fair, he has a half marathon coming up this month and he's been training for that. Like I said, race training means more steps.
Will's March 2016 average daily step count: 14,149 and his total March 2016 steps was 438,630 (about 10% more steps than me).
Seeing as both of us have been training for half-marathons and seem to be more competitive with our step counts, I've graphed our average daily steps for the last 6 months. There's clearly a positive trend and both of us are improving our step counts over time. Hope this trend keeps up :)
