I have heard of a number of people trying to get in 10,000 steps a day lately. Of course this is not a new trend and there are all sorts of ways that we can challenge ourselves daily as we work toward optimal health.
I am happy to see these kinds of challenges because they motivate a certain part of the population who may otherwise avoid physical activity! So Bravo to all of you embarking on walking/running your way to a better life!
For those of you who are wearing those pedometers and working alone or in groups to get the most steps, I want you to know that one of my line dance students proudly displayed a count of 4685 steps to me after our class yesterday. That was during a 55 minute class.
Another great reason to get dancing!
Have a great day walking, running or dancing!
