The 10,000 steps a day Challenge

The 10,000 steps a day Challenge

In this week's challenge you must Walk 10,000 steps a day. Getting healthier means moving more, and walking is one of the easiest ways to do that. 10,000 steps a day is often recommended by health experts as a good level of activity for a healthy adult. It equates to about eight kilometres, or one hour and 40 minutes walking, depending on your stride length and walking speed. If that sounds overwhelming, don’t worry – you don’t have to do all the steps in one walk. You will naturally accumulate steps through your day to day activities, but to reach the 10,000-step goal, you will likely need to do a 30-minute walk (or the equivalent in other exercise) as well.
