Why not take up this challenge for theSpring! It's a great way to get you moving either by yourself or within a team.
The sun is out and spring is here. It is also Naturally Healthy Month during May and national walking month, therefore we have set another pedometer challenge.
Your challenge is to see how many steps you can complete during May.
For those that need a target and enjoyed the momentum of the London Marathon, but couldn't run such a distance, why not see how many marathons you could walk/run in May.
Your challenge is to complete 5 marathons ...Yeovil...Exeter... Edinburgh...Worcester...Liverpool. Therefore a total of 262,000 steps (2000 steps = 1 mile based on average).
The challenge will begin on 1st May until 31st May. Compete against yourself or do it as a team against friends and colleagues. Log your steps under 'May Pedometer Challenge'.
Here's some tips to help you...
Park on the edge of town and walk in – save on the parking fees!
Park in the furthest corner of the Supermarket Car Park
Take a Neighbour’s dog for a walk
Better still, buy or rescue a dog
Walk your child to school rather than take the car
Take a walk break instead of a lunch break
Take the stairs in preference to a lift or escalator
When in the office walk to a colleague and talk rather than email them
Greet people at the door rather than just “buzz them in”
Make a point of speaking to every member of the office each day
Make everyone a cup of tea and take it to their desk
Have a meeting whilst walking rather than sitting at a desk
Get off the bus a stop early
