‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’
Chinese philosopher Laozi, Tao Te Ching, chapter 64
I’ve decided to challenge myself to walk 1,000 miles in a year – by 31st December 2018. It only amounts to an average of 2.7 miles a day, so it’s achievable. But it will require commitment.
By yesterday I’d completed 53 miles. I’d have got further but my decision to attempt the 1,000 miles in a year coincided with my right knee playing up. Nothing too serious but sometimes a bit too painful to walk very far.
I only made the decision to walk 1,000 miles a few days ago but fortunately my Apple Watch has been tracking my walking distances since the first day of the year.
As you can see from the table below, some days I fell short of the 2.7 daily target but other days did more.
As the days get longer they’ll be more opportunities to walk further.
I’ll be posting pictures and thoughts about my journey through this year.
