NASH: 1,000 miles, one step at a time


The 176 miles puts me at 824 left for the year which means I am under my daily pace requirement. I always assumed that I would do the bulk of my mileage during the warmer months of the year so I will need to pick up the pace for the next several months. To make my goal for the rest of the year I have to average about 3.5 miles per day. Hopefully with a few long bike rides I can get my average daily pace a little lower.

Walking just a little bit every day will go a long way to improving your overall health and nearly everyone can do it. Walking is an exercise that you don’t need any special equipment to accomplish many of your goals.  Walking is enjoyable and so simple that you can stick with it easily which is the downfall of many exercise programs.

Everyone should do what they can to try to be more active. Setting goals and being accountable for those goals is a good start.  Walking 1,000 miles may seem like more than you could possibly accomplish, but it becomes easier if you just take the first steps.
