It's walking and it's working? - VII

Keeping at a good thing

It could be quite easy to relapse whilst on holiday from the routine I adopted from the end of July 2020. I guess one of the things I miss from measuring my progress is weighing scales, even as I try to ignore the issue, I could be a bit obsessed about my weight and getting it to where I want it to be has not been easy.

It is summer in Cape Town and from early in the morning, the sun is out, and the weather is warm, by the time you have done the first kilometre of the 8 you need to get your 10,000 steps in for the day or the workout, you are sweating, and you have the compulsory facemask on.

And a natural inconvenience

Soon you also want to use the public conveniences too and hopefully you are walking route takes round somewhere you can get to ease yourself or you’ll be running back home just before you wet your pants. In the meanwhile, it probably is still working from just walking.

The numbers from last year are 3,088,840 steps for an average of 9,360 steps a day, the bulk of which was done in the last five months of the year, because until then, I only exceeded 5,000 steps once and that was in January. I probably can do more but I have to pace myself, because either a strain or a nerve ending is playing up in one of my legs that gets a regular hot press.
