I've been getting 10K+ every day for a month. It would be longer than that, but I broke the streak one day. Annoyed me, too. lol

I am obsessed w/ 10,000 steps a day. I put my pedometer on as soon as my feet are off the bed. It is not that difficult of a goal to meet.

I have stress fractures in my right foot - makes walking tough, but little bits over the day add up.

Hope you are feeling better today.
Broke my ankle a couple years ago and have a hard time getting to 10K. It tightens up when sitting and takes about 100 steps to loosen up.

Well I am not good at this blog stuff so forgive me. I was out last night walking a hyper Australian sheep dog/border collie mix she does not know how to walk.

My foot tripped in a whole in the yard I fell against the house skinned my knee all up and the dog took off. Luckily I was talking to her while trying to get up and by the time I did she was waiting for me by the front door. I would hate to tell my nephew I lost his dog.

I go to the doctor tomorrow to see if I fractured my ankle/foot. If I did it will be a long time until I can get 10K steps. Be careful when walking the dog. It is easy to break something if you are over 50.
