June went by like an express train and July is almost over, we’ve already completed the first month of our mental health awareness challenge. After an argument with a flight of stairs, I’ve unfortunately had to pull out for a few weeks but I'm looking forward to getting stuck back in again.
What started off as a solo journey to 300,000 steps to improve my own wellbeing and mental health, quickly evolved into a lovely bunch of team members embarking on the journey with me.
Going from being unintentionally sedentary to a surprise burst of energy was less than calming in the first few days of the challenge. Here’s how it went:
Day 1: 6am walk. 30 mins yoga. 30 mins Zumba. Long evening walk.
Day 2: What the hell have I done? Why do I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus?!
Day 3: I feel a little more alive
Day 4: Let’s do this!
Having a goal of 300,000 steps to work to and a bit of healthy competition between the team was a definite booster.
So…let’s talk stats!
I managed to walk 317,796 steps in June and the team walked a combined total of 1,865,593 steps for the month, with a few carrying on into July and beyond.
