~~ April Week Two ~~
Welcome to the challenge's second week of April! I hope it's going well so far - Mondays are typically quite busy for me, and today is no different.
Here's what's going on with me:
I received the first dose of the Covid vaccine yesterday. My arm is sore, my head aches, my sinuses are congested, and I've got some dizziness and light sensitivity, which just about covers the flu-like symptoms to be expected from the vaccine. As for any MS symptoms, there's been some strange nerve spasms traveling up my leg, but it's not as debilitating as the numbness I felt on the entire left side of my body when I had my Covid case, so I'll take it. It's been a challenge to remain focused on meetings, but there's nothing that way too many cups of coffee can't solve, right?
I did double spin classes on both Saturday and Sunday, which explains the soreness in my core right now. Probably a good thing I timed my vaccine with a much-needed rest day. I haven't scheduled my spin class for tomorrow morning yet, but I still have my alarm set, so I can sign up as soon as I wake up if I'm feeling up to the challenge. I'm trying to do my best to both push myself AND listen to my body - easier said than done.
~ Walking Warriors ~
This week, our seven steppers walked a total of 476,141 steps, which is an average of 68,020 steps per person over the course of the week, just shy of the oft-quoted 10k/day.Our Top Stepper this Week:
It was a close one this week! Debbie walked a total of 108,511 steps this week, averaging 15,502 steps per day (whoa). One of our other powerful walkers was not too far behind her...
Ann came in quite close to Debbie's steps this week, reaching a total of 102,500 steps over the course of the week, which is 14,643 steps per day on average. Considering how much of a competitor Debbie has been with our step challenge, coming anywhere near her, let alone being less than 1000 steps short per day, is an incredible accomplishment.
Ann is also our most consistent stepper this week, deviating from her average daily steps by less than 2000 each day. I am endlessly impressed by the consistency here. Normally, if I go for a long walk one day, I feel like there's no reason to do so the next.Our Walking Team:
All of our super steppers have been racking up a considerable amount of steps, an almost daunting number of steps. All of you are consistently keeping track of your steps and contributing to your overall wellbeing, and that's something to look up to. Thanks for being a good influence for the rest of us!
