I will be joining a few people I know in attempting to walk 10,000 steps a day starting tomorrow (if all parties have their pedometers by that time).
I put my pedometer on yesterday afternoon and walked around the neighborhood for 30 minutes and only walked 3500 steps. At that point, I thought I was screwed as far as the 10,000 steps thing goes. However, after wearing it for only an hour this morning, I already had 1,000 steps and it hasn't been a particularly active morning for me.
I might not win the challenge but I, at least, don't think I'm going to embarrass myself. I plan to keep a running tally down there on my sidebar.
Update: End of "test day" - 7,127 steps (without walking the neighborhood)
