I walked more than 11,066 steps today. I had not plan it. My husband had the car & was supposed to come pick me up from work. I called him repeatedly but could not get an answer. He works nights and I figured he had overslept. So, I thought I will walk as far as I can and then I will call him again. ( I live about a mile and half from my job)
However, everytime I called the phone would go to voice mail. Suddenly, I became concerned---suppose he was ill. So, I decided to walk all the way home. However, within about 1/2 mile from the house, I realized that I would not be able to go the last portion of the walk. I was going to have to almost run to get across a busy street and the last leg of the journey was up a hill for about a 1/4 of mile. My legs were too stiff to accomplish that. So, finally, I called my daughter to pick me up. As I waited on my daughter, I looked at the pedometer and it registered 10, 869 steps. I had accomplished my goal of 10,000 steps in day. A goal I didn't I would reach this soon. The glow of this goal kept me from annihilating my sleeping husband when I got home.
