Last week I walked 10,133 steps on average. I wonder what will happen if, for some reason, I don’t reach my 10,000 step goal some week? I think I’m a bit addicted on my steps. It feels safe to be able to reach that number over and over again. But I guess I’ll live if that happens.
I think my Sunday steps were actually more than 7499, because my pedometer seemed to be acting oddly. ( It just needed a new battery.)
Breakdown of my weekly workouts below:
- 2 x 45-50 min Nordic walks
- 5 x 40 min walks
- 2 x 30 strength training (kettlebells plus other movements)
I’m not going to increase my step goal further than 10,000 steps. I’m going to put more focus on strength training from now on. Last week I added kettlebells to my strength training sessions and it worked well. It was fun and I sweated like a pig!
I had forgotten how intensive kettlebell training is. Even though I only did a few swings and snatches and squatted holding a kettlebell, I was totally blasted. I didn’t have any knee problems either, even though I always worry about them returning. A horrible thought!
Weather is lovely in Finland at the moment. Nothing beats a brisk Nordic walk in a green forest during early summer.
