Here are the updated teams for the 2018 Step Challenge
If I've missed anyone, or others want to join - please let me know.
Please let me know if I missed anyone, or if you still want to join in.
Stepping will commence on Monday 1 JAN 18 and the first reporting thread will be on L&O on Sunday 7 JAN 18
Congratulations and good luck!!!
Here is how it will work:
The challenge is to complete at least 10,000 steps a day.
It doesn't matter if those are steps taken on a walk, on a run, or just throughout the course of the day.
If you surpass 10,000 steps in a day, you receive 1 point for the day.
Regardless of how many steps you complete in a day, you only receive 1 point a day.
Since no one is perfect - one day a week (any day you feel ambitious), you can rack up 20,000+ steps and receive an extra point for that day, but the maximum total number of points you can get in a week remains at 7.
You can be in both the Mileage Challenge and the Step Challenge and double count your steps for both challenges (i.e. you don't have to run 10 miles AND then walk another 6 miles to participate in both)
10,000 steps is roughly 6 miles - depending on stride length. It's the oft cited number of daily steps to help improve or maintain health.
Post here if you are interested in participating in the Step Challenge for 2018.
The process is:
Everyone who signs up will randomly be assigned to a team.
Each week, in the Step Challenge thread, post the number of steps you have take for each day, and if you have surpassed 10,000 steps for any given day, give yourself a point for that day.
For any single day in that week, if you surpass 20,000 steps, give yourself an extra point, as long as you don't go over 7 points in a week.
Sunday, 9,999 steps - 0 pt
Monday, 10,111 steps - 1 pt
Tuesday, 13,333 steps - 1 pt
Wednesday, 15,555 steps - 1 pt
Thursday, 17,777 steps - 1 pt
Friday, 19,999 steps - 1 pt
Saturday, 20,001 steps - 2 pts
I'll keep track of total individual and team points, as well as individual and team steps (just for fun)

Oops, sorry, if there's still time I'd like to join.
I was procrastinating about committing myself but I've been counting steps for a couple of months now and have been finding it useful, so I might as well take the plunge.

It's a certainty - 4 days, 4 points.

For what it's worth, I'm off to a slow start on this one. My biggest problem was not reading the rules before it started. Didn't realize it was on a per day basis. That gave me two zero days to start the year. EDIT:
Doh! I haven't been writing down how many steps per day either.

Come on IB. We have to crush that mutiger! Remember, you can do 20000 steps one day a week and get two points for it. For you, that's like a walk around the block.
Oh no so far I've done nothing but I'm giong to the gym today I promise!!
