Last week I was on vacation in California. The hotel we stayed in was in Newport Beach, but we also visited Disneyland, San Diego and Santa Monica.
And walked a lot!!!!
I did not track the walks, except by one, but I was always wearing my fitbit, which can give you guys an idea of how much walking was done.
Fitbit sets a standard goal (that we can change, but I never bothered to do so) of 10,000 steps a day, for a 70,000 steps weekly.
On the days of my trip, which were Friday to Friday, so 8 days, I walked a total of 108,922 steps!
I was under 10,000 only once, on March 31st, when I did ‘only’ 9351.
The one walk I tracked, was the only ‘official’ walk, that I did with the hotel people, who organizes daily 3-mile walks to a state park that goes along the beach. The hotel is at the top of a hill, so the walk had a big elevation change.
Here’s the details and pictures of that one walk:
Rocks coming out of the sand
Walking with a group from the hotel
Seagull taking a break
Broken down houses
Beach bird – Marbled Godwit?
But in spite of all the walk, I’m still much heavier than I’d like to be, and walking consistently helps me lose weight. So today I went for a log lunch time walk.
I did 4.33 miles, in 1 hour 13 minutes, with an average pace of 17:10.
