Raising the bar

I'm trying to get into a daily walking routine, and to that end I set myself some reasonable goals late last year.

I purposely set modest goals so that I would be encouraged when I made them most of the time, but today as I was entering in the figures it occurred to me that if I can regularly pass my weekly goal by Wednesday, I have probably set the bar too low.

My original goals were to get in at least 5,000 measured steps per day - that is, ones that I have counted with the pedometer because they are part of a brisk walk - and no less than 5 miles per week.

When I updated my log this evening I had already put in over 11 miles this week, so I am upping the goals. I am now aiming for at least 7,000 steps a day, and 10 miles a week. Ideally I should probably be doing real exercise as well, but walking is a start.
