The second million is easier

The first million was the hardest. It took me more than three months from "almost unable to walk" to "hey this is fun". I was very proud to get to that million. The second million was much easier. Five days shy of only two months was enough time to complete the challenge.

The interesting statistic is "daily steps", on average, over a full month. I can now easily get over 30.000 in a single day, but I cannot always afford the time. That is the limit now. As the winter approaches, there will be even less time, since it is not much fun to walk in the dark.

I have become a big fan of walking. For me, it cures about anything.

Volker, ich freue mich so für Dich. Den letzten Satz kann ich unterschreiben, ausser, dass es für mich Laufen ist.

Hubert Stettner, 2014-09-13

Bravo.

Do you feel different?

Eric Hancock, 2014-09-13

Eric, very much so. Much stronger, less weight, very relaxed.

Running takes half the time!

True. But it would cause tons of problems with my joints.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
