Walk this way...
Health advice says we should try to walk 10,000 steps a day, so this week I downloaded a pedometer app for my iPhone and decided to take the challenge.
I've always considered myself to be fairly active, so I was shocked to see that on Monday I was struggling to do 4,000 steps - fewer than HALF the recommended number!
Even when I walked to and from the train station in Bath and then spent the day pounding the aisles at a trade show in London on Tuesday, I only notched up 8,500 steps.
It's been a real eye opener, and even if I don't manage 10,000 every day, at least it's made me aware that I need to increase my foot count. A lot.
