Still stepping — q1 results of the “how many steps” study

I posted previously about my January steps challenge — 10,000 every day, in support of OpeningUpCricket.

I am still wearing the Fitbit, and collecting steps data — what follows is a look at February and March activity (including 2 weeks under covid-19 lockdown).

Overall, trend is down, since January, but this is mostly accounted for by the March numbers. I am still averaging over 10,000 steps each day, even through March.

Daily steps, q1 2020

February and March totals are skewed by two (short) walking holidays — more than 53k across two days in February, over 48k from two days in early March.

Walking in February — Cleveland Way from Robin Hood’s Bay to Whitby
Walking in March — around Dunwich Heath

The stats for the last two weeks of March are low — down more than one third on the first 10 weeks of 2020. There are several days when I have barely walked at all, offset by days shopping for my parents. I should probably aim for more consistent exercise…

Stats for coaching are pretty stable — ca. 1,300/hr across February and March. I might try to categorise the coaching activities a little more finely, to show more of when I am actually working (physically) when coaching — a session with the u5s is different to a Chance to Shine lesson, which is different again to a private 1-2-1. Maybe when we get back to normal I’ll take a look at this.
